A girl from the sea! Nagi no Asukara gadget anime review [8.3/10]
Nagi no Asukara – Gadget Anime Review
Long ago, people all lived in the sea.
However, people longed for land and left the waters.
In doing so they discarded the veils
given to them by the god of the sea.
Those who live in the sea, and those who live on land.
While they lived in different places and had different ideals,
they shared a similar ancestry.
Sakishima Hikari, Mukaido Manaka, Hiradaira Chisaki, and Isaki Kaname
live in the Umimura under the sea,
while Tsumugu Kihara lives on the land.
When the middle schoolers meet,
their lives begin to change like the tide.
A blue fantasy set in a slightly different world,
about the lives of these girls and boys.

Isaki’s nose bothers me 8
The colors are pretty. It feels like I should be smelling the ocean as I watch. Great work again from P.A.Works. This first episode was probably the best of this season. However with Mari Okada writing the script, we already know that the story is going to get a bit messy. There is already a triangle relationship between the characters, along with a racial divide between the sea and the land. I’m already worried that the salty scent of the ocean will sour soon…If you don’t like heart-wrenching storyline you may want to watch out for this series. Maybe a new trend will start with the main male character cooking in a swimsuit and apron.
Mating season for the heroine! 10
This series kicks off with a nude apron shot of the main character! A fantasy world with a city in the sea, this series is really pretty!
People used to only live in the sea, but some decided to live on land…and of course, now they hate each other. *sigh* people…
But, the girl characters are really cute, and somewhat erotic with the whole mating season things…wait, now there’s a fishhead growing out of a knee?
People might not like the main character, since he is a bit young and impulsive. I’m looking forward to see how the triangle relationship turns out, hopefully like a soap opera!
A girl from the sea! 10
The story begins when four middle schoolers who live under the sea have to transfer to a school on land. First of all, the art is very pretty. I really respect P.A.Works for being able to produce something of this quality every week, every season. I can’t tell yet if this will end with the land and sea working together or with a war, but there were lots of plot points in the first episode that I am looking forward to see developed. There are some scenes that were reminiscent of shows like Muromisan, Gargantia, or Toradora!.

I didn’t quite get a grasp of the whole world this series is set in, but the fish growing from the knee was a bit gross. There are cute characters in a mysterious world, and even a messy love triangle! If you like this kind of story, you should definitely take a look. The main theme songs are good as well!
From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”

I watch a lot of anime that is popular online.
