    I've read a couple of chapters of Amanchu! and being a huge fan of Aria this gave off the same feeling as that while being more down to earth since it's about diving. I'm happy to see the director of Aria returning and collaborating with the director of Honey and Clover, two of my favorite slice of life animes. It should be a good slice of life for the summer.

    Enjoyable first ep. Some of the animation is a bit odd though, when they do OTT facial expressions. Works with some anime, doesn't work with this imo.

    It feels like they're replacing dialogue that's supposed to be funny or meaningful with those faces.

    finally, amanchu :catlewd
    pikari is fucking precious
    i kinda agree
    although, more with that the fact that say in aria they gain more chubby-chibi bodies to accomodate the face and it looks more natural, pikari having her normal bod with it all the time makes it feel a bit odd
    otherwise i like them myself

    I didn't really have a big problem with it, but I agree it would have been better to make it like Aria and have the bodies more chibi like with the toonish faces.

    I enjoyed the first episode, Pikari is love and the music is relaxing

    Yeah I enjoyed this more than the last one, still getting used to the style though. It's really relaxing though.

    This weeks episode was great! Teko is growing as a character and Pikari is helping her do things she wouldn't be able to do alone. Thought the pace of this week was much better and had some good comedy moments aswell.

    I agree loved the confusion with the underwear and monkey.

    Must have been super uncomfortable diving for the first time especially with the water getting in the goggles.

    That chalk board looked beautiful a shame they had to erase it but a good bonding moment to end the episode.

    Yep I'm really getting in to it now!

    I got most emotional at the start. When Teko was having flashbacks.

    Damn Teko that's alot of picture, make a snapchat or something. Great development for Teko.

    I think this is where I left off in the manga.

    I can relate to Teko a lot, she's awkward as hell but tries her best (Unlike Naho in Orange).



    Pikari is also great, at the start of the anime I thought she was a bit annoying, but she has a heart of gold and is full of wisdom. Teko is lucky to have her as a friend.

    Naho is the worst. As awkward as Teko can be there's a certain maturity to her character I like, she puts things into perspective and I like how sentimental she is.

    The last episode was incredible, perfect music, scenery, with added comedy timing. This series got better with every episode and ended up being one of my favourite series this season. It took me a little while to get used to the animation style, but in the end this turned out amazing. I'm sad it had to end, but am quietly confident of a second series. Probably the most underrated anime in recent times, a mini masterpiece.

    Yeah this was as amazing as I expected it's a shame not many would watch it. One of the things I love especially in this episode is when Teko was describing the depths of the ocean and her surroundings the music was also incredible during that. Pikari saying I love you lots to Teko was the cutest moment.

    The author for Amanchu! is a master at making Slice of Life series, if you like this check out her other series, Aria.

    randomly decided to rewatch s1 before catching up to this and loved it more this time round; the ova was nice too, simple and predictable themes but was done nicely

    also enjoying the new season
    however i found out
    Spoiler: manga spoilers - trigger warning
    that kokoro is a boy and in the latest jap raw that it seems amano is heavily implying she wants to properly pair pikari and kokoro :noah
    like why, he's a fucking 11 year old boy
    just because amano doesn't like how she does female relationships comes off so yuri
    im not even a yurifag, i'd have been fine if it was another high schooler, but a goddamn shota
    actually triggered, why would you do this to pikari :brolmes
