Why It Rocks
- Incredible animaiton.
- All of the characters are incredibly interesting and likable, and watching their coming of age story is very engaging.
- Very appealing character designs.
- All of the characters have great chemistry with one another, weather they're just good friends, or they're supposed to be love interests.
- Beautiful Soundtrack.
- The series has a lot a large subtext about racism in it, regarding how the above ground humans feel about the undersea people, which is used to full effect.
- Great voice acting in both sub and dub.
- The conflict between the two groups of humans is handled in a tasteful and realisitc way. Neither side is depicted as good or evil, it's a very gray situation. The racism is of course a bad thing, but the above ground humans are still likable in their own way, and vice versa.
- The love triangle in the series can be incredibly obnoxious.
