Nagi no Asukara:  A Lull in the Sea is a Japanese anime series. It started with a manga series which was written by Project-118, illustrated by Risō Maeda, and published by ASCII Media Works for the magazine Dengeki Daioh.

Why It Rocks

  1. Incredible animaiton.  
  2. All of the characters are incredibly interesting and likable, and watching their coming of age story is very engaging.  
  3. Very appealing character designs.  
  4. All of the characters have great chemistry with one another, weather they're just good friends, or they're supposed to be love interests.  
  5. Beautiful Soundtrack.  
  6. 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.  
  7. Great voice acting in both sub and dub.  
  8. 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.  

Bad Qualities

  1. The love triangle in the series can be incredibly obnoxious.
