You know how in Spirited Away when Chihiro and her parents get out of the car, walk through the abandoned train station and come across a vast meadow? The wind blowing through the tall grass, the sun shining it's bright beaming light, and not a soul in sight and you could just take the whole thing in? The entire thing lasted maybe 20 seconds but it felt like an eternity. Now take that whole ideology and apply it to an anime series and you get Blue Drop. It's hard to explain why this is. Perhaps it's the overall soothing quality. It's not like Maria-sama where "walking slowly is preferred here" and you get a slow plot, Blue Drop is just sort of translucent. It has an artistic quality to it without being artistic. It's one of those shows where you can't believe you are actually watching it and it's as if you've been transported into a new dimension. It's rare for an anime to draw out such emotions like this. That's why Blue Drop is fucking awesome. And no, this is not copypasta. I wrote this out because out of all the anime I've seen, Blue Drop truly understands what makes an anime an anime.
