Planetarian is not only a visually beautiful anime, but an easy going one as well. But do not let that fool you, as the anime is based off a KEY (CLANNAD) creation. Planetarianstarts out in a post-apocalyptic world and centers around a man named Kuzuya and a girl/cyborg named Yumemi Hoshino. There isn’t much in the way of action and violence, like Solty Rei and Saikano, but the laid-back feel it gives off throughout the entire anime, with a hint of mystery, doesn’t leave much to be desired for the average anime otaku.Planetarian does end tragically [highlight for spoiler: as
What would you do if you knew you were going to die, but couldn’t travel the world? For Akiba Rika, she chooses to read books. Rika has a heart disease that prevents her from going to school, making friends, or even going outside for a walk. So she spends her time in hospital reading books. But that changes when she meets Yuuichi Ezaki, who is deadset on getting her to enjoy life with him. Of course, he is blissfully unaware of her illness for most of the anime and she isn’t willing to tell him about it. It won’t be easy, as there are slight levels of NTR in the anime.
3. H2O: Footprints in the Sand
The anime centers around a blind high schooler named Takuma Hirose. Takuma is a quiet boy who is feeling the effects of losing his mother, but that doesn’t stop three girls from trying to help him out. One girl, Otoha, heals his blindness – albeit temporarily, so he can help people around their village. Unfortunately for Takuma, helping others isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. His already dark world starts to become =a little bit darker as he learns the village has some very terrible secrets.
The anime was produced by Zexcs, a company not known for creating anything remotely close to being called a “masterpiece”, but H2O is an exception. It is currently not licensed, but was licensed by Kadokawa Pictures USA. It never saw a release because Kadokawa USA went under soon after licensing the anime. You can watch it on Crunchyroll though!
