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 don't normally write preliminary reviews, but I think I should write one, especially for this anime which deserves a higher score.

Prior to 2020, there is plenty of slice-of-life anime out there. We have got some unique themes like camping, fox goddess, or dragon maid. Then we got a new one, a theme of fishing, which is unique enough for "cute girls doing cute things" or slice-of-life fans should give it a try.

FINALLY IT'S BACK! Now time to tell why you should be watching this series!

There is a lot to like about this show, from it being a usual cute girls doing cute things, with very funny moments. But it's also quite informative about the topic it presents. It's like fun learning, you enjoy a great show, but also learn how to fish in general. I find that truly great honestly, while it helps having an interest in fishing, but for the anime to do that, it's a nice touch.

The art style is very colourful and bright. As if it's a nice relaxing atmosphere, preparing you for read more

As much as I don't think you should write reviews on still-airing shows, this show has been robbed. It's been criminally underviewed and underrated this season, a fate that was perhaps due to the review bombing new seasonal moes get, or to the unfortunate delay it suffered because of the virus. If you've somehow gotten to reading this, I implore you to give this show a chance.

This anime falls in the "country girls doing cute shit" category, a niche genre most well-known for shows like non-non biyori and flying witch. As much as I like cute shit, there's much more here than that - read more

After finally coming back due to a postponing because of COVID-19, I am glad to finally be able to write a review about this show. As of now, I am only 4 episodes deep, but so far I have thoroughly enjoyed what has been presented to me.

I mean, it's just cute girls fishing. Never thought I would see a slice of life about that exact topic, but I'll be damned if I say it isn't a welcome one. Sometimes slice of lives just don't land because I'm not interested at all in what the girls are doing (See Koisuru Asteroid), but I've always loved read more
