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?

I went into this with the hopes that it would be fun given the high average score and let's just say I was extremely disappointed, btw this is just based on the first episode as that is all I've seen and ever will see as I am dropping this.This is about a generic main character going back to live in place he used to live 10 years ago yep I've seen this before; of fucking course he has childhood friend girls but that honestly doesn't matter all that fucking happens is the character is dragged into drinking by some fucking asshole's and his childhoodfriend/cousin says read more

I heard nothing but praise for this show. It somehow is pleasing critics. How? I have no fucking clue.

This is a comedy series... that only has one joke. Over and over again. The characters are mostly bland. The "comedic" faces are just not fun to look at. The concept is stupid. The few paths of the story that I was at all interested in were never covered. It only tries to be funny, which it really isn't. I'm baffled this show is getting a positive reception, because nothing impressed me. I think the only reason people are flocking to it is because it is college read more

Please note that i re-read the manga (at last what's out atm) about 20 times before watching the first episode so i'm biased against it. To me, it was most likely going to be a letdown no matter the quality.

Secondly, this rant is based on the first episode, but considering the problems, they will probably last through the entire run.

So, let's get to it.

Story: Our MC comes over to his uncle to live with, while he studies engineering at a college nearby.

The staff drank too much water and oolong tea that they adapt this so badly, the synopsis may sounds skeptical (Don't judge the book by its cover) but the diving is really not the focus of it you're probably expecting of rom com fanservice but Grand Blue didn't rely in that pathetic shit it may sound generic and cliche but it's really unique that way the delivered its comedy is on point that you would laugh your ass off to the point that you can't even breathe anymore and your stomach will ache as hell trust me

The manga was a masterpiece it's easy to read read more
