Trust me, I wasn't EVER gonna watch girly romantic stuff either. But this is some really, REALLY good ****. The sequel lines up there with some of the best anime I have EVER seen. And I've seen quite a bit. :p
Either way, maybe see the video review below and show it to nick and see if that sways him, I guess? Seriously though, the second season deals (barring the first 8 episode) with the main lead and showcase their journey into adult life. And it is so good it has made even the most cold hearted people cry. It is just good. :(
Family, bah. Nick's not even going to watch it with me. The day I started Nagi no Asukara, Nick came bursting through the door with a the OP Jolly Roger hanging from his car keys. He's not interested in girly romance animes. But, I want to give the genre a chance and I wasn't disappointed in NnA (barring the fact that I'm only on episode 17).
Tl;dr - Watch Clannad and its sequel Clannad After Story, ya fool.
The only reason I refuse to watch it with my sis is because it has a line where the heroine's parents couldn't believe she was pregnant and asked the husband whether a crane got them a baby or someone dropped him there and then the heroine, being the ditz that she is, replies with 'of course not, dad! That's not how babies are made. We had sex!'
it'd be awkward around sis so yeah. Otherwise it is THE show to watch with a family.
I'm recommending you the show which made me cry tons of times. It made me go 'aww, that's so cute'. And it made me realise how important family really is. How much I love those that I'm close to.
Please watch Clannad. If not for the show itself but for the sequel to it - Clannad After Story. It is, in my eyes, one of the greatest romantic dramas ever. But it isn't just sugary sweet romance, no. The show basically stresses on the importance of family. And it does so wonderfully.
First season basically has the protagonist help out various girls of his class in high school. While love blooms between him and the female lead. It is a good watch by itself, entertaining in fact, and it did make me cry three four times. BUT it is just the beginning. After season one the MC and the girl begin their life as a couple. And they face hardships in life after high school. Romantic dramas generally never go beyond high school and end with a kiss or a marriage proposal. Not here. Show showcases the difficulties of a married couple - financial problems, moving in, adjusting to the outside world, kids. Everything. And I love it for it.
Just an amazing watch, Jo. This is one of the few shows that I'd actually love watching with my whole family. It is emotionally moving, very cute and actually manages to make you appreciate the importance of family in the process. I love it. Season one is an 8-9 in my eyes. Two is a 10. So yes.
You can also watch this video if you're not convinced, I guess. The guy does a much better job than I do.
Yay. I'll vm you when I get home to let you know I want to get it opened. :3
even if you were srs with dat statement, there's still no way I can return on staff before may end anyway lol. :p Exams and **** and no pc access. No pc access is why I resigned in the first place. So yeah, as much as I want to be of service to you and A&D, I can't. :( I'll try my best when it comes to contests and comments, though!
