    Studio: Zero-G


    Synopsis from MAL

    Among the seaside town of Izu's ocean waves and rays of shining sun, Iori Kitahara is just beginning his freshman year at Izu University. As he moves into his uncle's scuba diving shop, Grand Blue, he eagerly anticipates his dream college life, filled with beautiful girls and good friends.

    But things don't exactly go according to plan. Upon entering the shop, he encounters a group of rowdy, naked upperclassmen, who immediately coerce him into participating in their alcoholic activities. Though unwilling at first, Iori quickly gives in and becomes the heart and soul of the party. Unfortunately, this earns him the scorn of his cousin, Chisa Kotegawa, who walks in at precisely the wrong time. Undeterred, Iori still vows to realize his ideal college life, but will things go according to plan this time, or will his situation take yet another dive?

    As this is a diving series about diving, I hope that they appropriately capture the diving. :maybe

    Huh? Nonono. Where are you getting the idea the idea that this is some generic harem anime? Diving into co-eds isn't isn't diving. What are you talking about? Like Musubi said, it's water. Only water.

    He's a stoic guy, but there's no one who wants to explore the deep blue more than he does.

    After seeing this I started the manga and just caught up. It's not bad but it's a typical gag manga. It turned boring fast for me. I like the interaction between Chisa and Iori and love to see the show end with them together but besides that. Meh... Not going to bother watching this.

    Not the best adaption. It feels like the visuals are a bit weak and the comedic timing is somewhat off.

    It's still fairly good, though.

    I was made aware of this manga before it made it into anime :catshivers but glad to say the anime didn't disappoint.

    The manga just sets a high bar.

    Started watching this. I remember watching one of the PVs a while ago and was thinking it was gonna focus huge on the wonders and magic of diving and ocean shit. Man, was I wrong! lol

    Funniest shit I've seen in a while. As expected from the source material and the director previously working on Gintama.

    Was an entertaining show, but Asobi was my pick of the comedies in the summer. 7/10
