Opinion: (contains spoilers from the anime! you have been warned)
AIR is one of the first anime's that i have seen. The reason why i watched it was because i really loved the art and that didn't change when i watched it.
The story is sometimes very difficult to follow as it goes back 1000 years ago in episode 8 and 9, and in the special AIR in Summer the story continues in that time setting.
After the 1000 year episode, the story continues with Misuzu from a different point of view. It might all be very confusing but in the end everything makes sense.
If you are going to watch this anime then i also recommend that you buy
a tissue box or two because you will need it.
The anime is short, but very beautiful and interesting but sometimes hard to follow, the opening and the ending fit the story and especially the opening is one of my favorite anime openings.
I give AIR a 10/10 because it's perfect, from the art, music, story line. I can't put more words into it other then go watch it.
