I need more NagiAsu. Even if it's just a spinoff with new characters. They can just have the old cast as side character.
I do but the show just left a strong impression. The marraige of fantasy and thematic elements was beautiful. A show about emotional and literal stasis. A show where those who are emotionally stagnant are those who physically endure time while those who wish to change are in a literal stasis. The trials of the characters endured showed the sea god who himself was both in literal and emotional stasis the truth of relationships. The sea god was in search of a meaningful relationship with his people free of emotional pain. However such a thing does not exist. Love is like the sea. You have to embrace the pain as with the joy and that is when new feelings are born.
Sea god was literally Hachiman. Over the years his people forgot him and their wishes were as false a the wooden dolls they sacrifice. He wanted a genuine bond.
