Nagi no Asukara Episode 26 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 26 – The Color Of The Sea. The Color Of The Land. The Color Of The Wind. The Color Of The Heart. The Color Of You. After almost half a year Nagi no Asukara has finally come to an end and it’s been an emotional ride.

Nagi no Asukara Episode 25 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 25 – Love is Like the Sea With the second last episode of the series we’re now approaching the end. After the incredibly well-done previous episode I feel like this one was a bit disappointing. Loose ends are being wrapped up but in a fairly anti-climactic way, at least compared with the awesome Kaname and Sayu interaction. Nevertheless Nagi no Asukara is still an emo...

Part 1 saw a group of a...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 24 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 24 – Detritus What a confession! And no, not the awkward blunder that Tsumugu started at the end of the last episode (you can’t just grab someone like that!), but the sleeper hit couple Kaname and Sayu. For the first time I think Nagi no Asukara has established itself as great romance anime, rather than leaving everything with loose ends and tears. And there’s s...

Nagi no Asukara Episode 23 Impressions

Nagi no Asukara Episode 23 – Who Do These Feelings Belong To? See the title of this episode? Those feelings belong to us, the viewers, as the show approaches its emotional finale.

No doubt there&...
