Wet Summer Days (Suika)

English name: Wet Summer Days

* Based on a game by Circus
Genre: Romance, Drama, Slice of Life, Mystery
Type: OVA
Year: 2003
Episodes: 3 + one special DVD only episode

Spoiler for cover picture:


Has anyone else seen this? I thought that it was pretty good. The first episode anyway. It's a pity that it contains H content, even though not too much, but I thought that it would have been better off without it.

Suika is one of my favorite anime (adult or non-adult). I can still rewatch the second and third episodes anytime and still enjoy it tremendously.

I was hoping someone would fansub the edited version of Suika when the two versions first came out a long time ago. Later the unedited version got picked up for R1 release. I watched the edited version of the third episode and it was produced and edited in such a way that I couldn't even tell there was an H-scene. So I really wasn't missing anything there.

I prefer the non-adult version of episode three, but I think the adult version of episode two has more meaning with the H-scene intact. I thought the H-scene made the story more emotional and sad.

I liked the second episode the most. I really liked Itsuki and her story. I like bittersweet stories and endings.

I would have been curious to know if you disliked the second and third episodes also. I didn't get that much into the first episode either to be honest.

The first episode was different from the other ones. Episode 2 and 3 had a bittersweet ending, but then I think that it was nice to have there at least one with a happy ending.

Hmm...I thought episode three had a happy ending.

But there was a lot of bittersweet scenes earlier in the third episode I agree.

I have a feeling they decided to end the series with the third episode story instead of the second episode story because if they ended it with the second, the series would have ended on a big downer.

LOL. I just noticed that there is a Suika banner in Da Capo episode 12 above a cinema.

Wait a minute...don't tell me that they wanted to see the H version.

And thanks for the correction. Though I'm a bit disappointed, I thought it might be a bit mmm... crunchier?
