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.

"Grand Blue" by Shounan no Kaze (eps 1-11)

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.

I am hoping for s2 as there would ...

Mixed Feelings
“Grand Blue” is what happens when You mix a fever dream with the most nonsensical, deranged and dumb humor You can imagine.

It might be the fact that I was mostly stuck in a lab with a shit load of numbers to analyze for the past few days but I actually had fun with this one. It’s dumb, borderline retarded and had barely anything that isn’t a cheap joke and yet it made me laugh a few times. Like I said, I might be overworked.

It’s an over the top comedy and it wears that on its sleeve.
It uses over exaggerated reactions to a lot of ...

This show did not age well at all. The jokes here are so lame and predictable I hate to even call it a comedy. I don't think there's a single original joke in the entire thing. I only watched this because it was on the recommended tab of Prison School, which is one million times funnier in every conceivable way. Prison School is laugh-out-loud funny while this show is more like a school drama with goofy characters. All the characters are boring. MC overreacts to every situation by making silly faces even when there's no reason to. This might actually be one of the worst ...
