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.

I thought this anime was just full of comedy at the first time, but I was wrong.
It's quite educational explaining about fishing and similar stuff with these 4 middle school girls (another CGDCT/ Cute Girls Doing Cute Things anime)
The atmosphere is calming and gave me relaxation. Mostly takes place at shore.
Also there is moral of the story about how to treat animals around the sea that is not fish or other sea creatures.
The characters are enjoyable not too exagerrated and each characters have unique different personality.
Overall, this anime is recommended for you who likes slice of life, sports and people who works as fisherman or ...

First impressions are all about how worthwhile a show is and if one should watch it. While it may seem like just another CGDCT's anime, nevertheless the twist of fishing really surprised me in how different everything felt. The daily life of a club about fishing is the perfect setting for this type of slice-of-life.

Made by Doga Koba, they are known for multiple anime, but are notably known for slice-of-life. The many examples include, New Game, Maoujou de Oyasumi, Yuru Yuri, Gabriel DropOut, Sewayaki Kitsune no Senko-san, Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!, and Himouto! Umaru-chan. When it comes to comfy daily lives of anime ...

Mixed Feelings
Even though Houkago Teibou Nisshi is categorized as a fishing anime, I like to think of him more as a sports cooking anime. When the characters manage to catch a fish, the anime celebrates the moment in a very conquering and rewarding way. He also praises the realization of the characters at the time of their meals, in addition to an organic preparation, the foods are always framed with an extra shine, there is an avidity built that stimulates a thirst for continuity in these actions. This method is very similar to that used in Dr. Stone, who also exalted his achievements well and was ...
