The story takes place in Okinawa, where Haruka forms a beach volleyball pair with Kanata. Kanata, who couldn't handle the pressure put on her by her short height, had given up on beach volleyball already but is convinced by Haruka to step back on the sand once again and aim for the junior tournament.

This show is filled with all kinds of disgusting and cringe-worthy elements of the most vile kind, things that will make your skin crawl, including but not limited to:

-Fan service (oh god, the horror)
-Sexy ladies in bikinis (ugh!)
-Yuri moments (No, please, no!)

...but you know, it turns out that crazy people like me greatly enjoy all of those despicable things, and if you do too, this is probably a show for you!

Satire aside, Harukana Receive is a competent show. My opinion on the show has not changed since I originally wrote this review; from an ecchi perspective, the girls are all very attractive read more

*This review is completely tasteless, and should not be read by anyone*

There is something very visually pleasing when it comes to women playing volleyball. Watching how cute, sportic ladies give their best in highly sportsmanship-like sport while occasionally hugging each others or falling over each others and "accidentally" groping some tits while doing so, is definitely the core of any sports.

However, Harukana Receive is about beach volleyball, which is a bit different from normal volleyball because you play it on sand, outdoors, in pairs of two, and apparently make cute anime girl sounds whenever hitting the ball. This show is not a masterpiece of ecchi read more

I'm not sure why this anime is ranked so low. Without taking my personal entertainment into consideration, I believe this anime should be a solid 7.5.

There's been a MAJOR lack of representation of women in sports animes. So when I saw Harukana Receive and Hanebado coming out this season, I was so excited! I had low expectations going in, especially with the ecchi genre tacked on to it, but I'm having a great time so far.

The animation is absolutely gorgeous!! The sand particles are animated to perfection and the different camera angles help to capture the difficulty and excitement of this sport. Even if read more

Here's the thing. If the fanservice bothers you that much, then this show is not for you.

While the fanservice is here to stay (not that I'm complaining), I hope that won't stop you from giving this show a try.

What makes Harukana Receive different from other sports anime this season is that it's light and fun to watch. It's one of those shows that you can watch after a tiring day or when you just want to watch something and relax. The plot isn't complicated and that isn't a bad thing. They just enjoy playing beach volleyball.

I also like how the show introduces a number of read more
