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.

It’s easy to dismiss a show like Harukana Receive at first glance. Look at the key visual, read the premise, and check out those preview promotional material. What do you see? If the answer involves girls in bikinis playing beach volleyball, then you would be 100% correct. As a competitive sport, Harukana Receive takes the idea of beach volleyball and transforms it into a meaningful competitive story to tell.

Since its serialization in 2015, the manga has received only moderate attention but had enough value to be licensed in North America. I rarely ever heard of people talking about the manga though so I assume most read more

I love a good CGDCT. If you were to look through all of my favorites and the shows I rank highly you would find a lot of CDCGT that I gave a high score to. I also like sports shows and find them as a good way to get hype and experience the highs and lows of competition without the negative ramifications of death or other dark results like with some shounen. A pairing between the two seems odd and when combined with the echii tag there are a lot of distinct parts that are mixed together. And while I think it can be done read more

Sports-centric anime are nothing new: For said game, you know the sport, you know the rules, competition ensues and some character development got misfired or screwed hard in the process towards the end, just like a certain badminton anime this season.

For this reason alone, Harukana Receive attempts to add the CGDCT aspect to the sports genre, while giving us the SoL view and despite THAT "Ecchi" tag, there is minimal fanservice to be found (some yuri moments, butt slaps, bouncing boobs and whatnot) that can actually rave wee bits of enjoyment. The end result is an anime that is telling us to just sit back read more

Haruka Kanata... meaning Far Away. Typical duo or pair character in Japan, not only in anime. Gonna put it short.
For Ecchi tag anime this is not even close to bare minimum for ecchi, the tag function because of most of setting place and main event mostly at the beach since focus on volley beach sport.

Harukana Receive sadly is one of those mainstream anime sport, of which?
The "Aiming to the top or the best" sport anime. Physical advantage main character, Highly skillful with short body main character, rivals who happened to be ex-partner or close friend, and super demon coach arrived to train the team.
The usual read more
