So, I thought I would start with the other series discussion!
Umi Monogatari is a series that I have yet to find another fan of. I have never encountered anything related to it at any anime convention that I have attended.
A long time ago a malevolent being named Sedna was sealed away. Half was sealed in the sea and the other half on land. Now, a pair of sisters that live in the sea find a ring that was thrown away. The older, Marin, decides to go on land and return it to the girl that it belongs to. When on land the younger sister, Urin, accidentally releases the half of Sedna sealed onto the land. Now, Marin and Kanon, the girl that threw away the ring, have to become magical girls to stop Sedna.
This series is beautiful to look at it and uses very calming music. Instead of big instrumental pieces you have pianos in battle.
This series only ran one cour. So only about twelve or thirteen episodes.
Oh, and did I mention it shares directors with a little anime called Princess Tutu?
