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.

Slice of life show has been a difficult thing for me to continually support and call myself a fan of, including consisting cast of monogender aka cute girl. I generally enjoy the characters especially if the show indeed had a strong character’s interaction because let’s be honest there has never a plot to dive into, but I feel like the show suffers from having too much familiarity with only initial premises that makes the difference. For the past few years I’ve seen a lot of stuff like this, Comic Girls with cute girls making manga, After School Dice Club about making and playing board games, read more

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 read more

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. read more

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 read more
