Hina Tsurugi and her family have just moved to a quaint seaside town. Hoping to savor the sight of the peaceful ocean, Hina stumbles upon a girl named Yuuki Kuroiwa—an upperclassman at her new school—who invites Hina to join her in fishing. Hina reels in an octopus, which falls onto her; being afraid of bugs and big creatures, she panics and begs Yuuki to remove it from her. Yuuki sees this as an opportunity to force Hina to join the school's Breakwater Club—a club where members gather, catch, and eat various types of marine life as their main activity.

Although her attempts to refuse to join fail, Hina slowly begins to discover the hidden joy in fishing. Her view on the sport changes, now looking forward to all the delightful experiences she can take part in alongside her fellow club members.

Darn you Corona, for robbing this show of the views and the potential to be great, because this is truly underviewed and underrated, and before I start this review proper, I honestly plead anyone who likes the usual CGDCT gimmick, but wants something different out of it, this show will do wonders. Don't think, just watch!

And without further ado, Doga Kobo is back at the CGDCT formula once again homies! It's gonna be a lil' different from what we've come to expect of the sub-genre, and this show here proves more often than not that it can do the Slice-of-Life genre justice while being confined ...

Houkago Teibou Nisshi/ Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater is a show that'd alienate most people due to its premise, but beneath that lies a wholesome and comforting show about discovering fishing as a passion and a journey in discovering and absorbing oneself in such a passion. Fishing is used as a vehicle to explore what it means to be passionate among the entire cast, with presentation being more subtle. Unfortunately, this means the show's appeal as well as its misfortune of airing during COVID-19 - being particularly hit hard and being pushed an entire season down the line - actively hurt the series. ...

Another season. Another cozy CGDCT anime from DG. Houkago Teibou Nisshi has been one of my fave shows of the year so far. Not only do we get the usual fun, cute and wholesome style of show we've come to expect from Doga Kobo, but we all get a genuine educational experience.

Every week we follow Hina and her after water breakwater club as they explore new fishing techniques, gutting fish, cleaning and cooking them, etc. If you have any interest in nature or the outdoors at all, you'll really enjoy this show. I personally didn't have much of an interest in fishing prior to ...
