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. From an ecchi perspective, the girls are all very attractive and, much like Keijo, the show has found a good excuse to get the
audience their fan service in copious amounts without needing to push the believability out almost at all.
The story is nothing particularly spectacular yet, though the general framework of girls playing beach volleyball is working perfectly well in serving its efforts to develop the characters. I can't judge this aspect of the show too much only two episodes in, but I at least have an understanding of where each girl is coming from, their relationships to each other, and what the general drama is between them, which is enough for me.
I would say the main things to like about this show are generally obvious to any respectable ecchi fan, particularly all of the things I listed at the beginning of this review. As far as whether non-ecchi fans would enjoy this, I would say the girls' cute personalities, decent artwork, and the sports aspect could certainly be appealing enough to make this an enjoyable watch. However, if you actively dislike fan service, this is not a show for you.
Some other things of note that may sway your opinion one way or the other:
-The show appears to be all-girls. At this moment in time, the only male is a pet turtle.
-Because of the first point, it should come as no surprise that the girls are occasionally flirty with each other with potential for actual yuri to occur (though we all know how that usually turns out in shows like this)
-Things move fairly quickly so far in terms of the main girl's improvement at the sport; probably the writers opting to focus more on the characters in the 12 episodes they have. However, what we've seen so far in terms of actual volleyball matches have been pretty fun to watch.
tl;dr I definitely recommend this show for ecchi fans who like an all-girl cast. Non-ecchi fans may get enjoyment out of the cute (though tropey) characters and the sports aspect, however I do not recommend this show if fan service is something you dislike.
