Iori Kitahara moves to the coastal town of Izu for his freshman year at its university, taking residence above Grand Blue, his uncle's scuba diving shop. Iori has high hopes and dreams about having the ideal college experience, but when he enters the shop he is sucked into the alcoholic activities of the carefree members of the Diving Club who frequent the place. Persuaded by upperclassmen Shinji Tokita and Ryuujirou Kotobuki, Iori reluctantly joins their bizarre party. His cousin Chisa Kotegawa later walks in and catches him in the act, earning Iori her utter disdain.

Based on Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka's popular comedy manga, Grand Blue follows Iori's misadventures with his eccentric new friends as he strives to realize his ideal college dream, while also learning how to scuba dive.

A series that doesn't have a single boring episode.
You like drinking? Naked men? Good jokes?
I did enjoy watching the show so much. This has to be one of the funniest shows that I've watched so far. Even though the jokes were good the face impressions and animations made it the best.
The storyline was okay but still maybe pointless sometimes. But it did not really bother that much.
Also once in a while Main characters and supporting characters were really good. I mean Tokita, Kotobuki and other were as good as all of four MC's.
I am hoping for s2 as there would ...

not bad but not good ether

if you wanna chill after a long day of working u can watch it, but if your a comedy fan and looking for something great don't waste ur time. Its a monotone anime with no ending just some guys that get naked and drink all the time with some gag humor that's it.

I don't understand why this anime has such a rating, nor why it belongs to the seinen category. If this anime is for anyone, that is for teenagers, for killing time. I was expecting an interesting story of students at the university, interesting events related to the diving club, interesting characters, but there is nothing of that. The characters are boring and one dimensional, actually they are all the same, there is not a single interesting character worth mentioning here. The whole anime boils down to casual conversations that should be funny but aren't, they're also pointless and cringe. There is no plot, no character ...
