Since childhood, Hiyori Yamakawa has witnessed her father's various eccentricities, but one activity she has always loved doing with him is fly fishing—a complicated yet rewarding method of catching fish. Even after his sudden death, Hiyori still visits the seaside in her spare time, savoring the joy that her father's memento brings her.

Three years later, Hiyori's mother decides to remarry and arranges a dinner with her fiancé, his daughter, and Hiyori to celebrate. Anxious and wanting to pass the time, Hiyori goes to her usual fishing spot when a rather energetic girl named Koharu Minagi suddenly appears before her. The two soon become acquainted, with Koharu taking an interest in fly fishing herself. However, their meeting is more than just a coincidence: Koharu turns out to be Hiyori's future stepsibling, which is only the beginning of treasured memories the both of them will reel in as they foster their sisterhood.

Slow Loop at the surface looks like a typical moe SoL anime where the only selling point is the character is cute. A carbon-copy moe SoL anime where the only difference is the character design and the activity they focus on.

However, I was proven otherwise after the first few episodes. Slow Loop did not attempt to copy from moe anime but instead created its own identity.

If I want to summarize the whole anime, I will say that it takes the good part of Laid-Back Camp (Yuru Camp) and Dairy of Our Days at the Breakwater (Houkago Teibou Nisshi) and combine it into this ...

As a fisher who still occasionally fishes and given that some of my fondest memories growing up were fishing trips with my family and friends, I had surprisingly high expectations for what initially appeared as a generic CGDCT and SOL anime. Slow Loop managed to not only match my expectations but genuinely surpass them in terms of how well researched the series is and how effectively they covered the hobby. This review will provide a quick summary on why I enjoyed Slow Loop and what aspects were covered well.

In terms of story, Slow Loop is fairly basic, similar to most CGDCT anime, 2 girls, had ...

Depending on what genres of anime you watch, Winter 2022 may or may not have been a good anime season for you. For me it wasn't, with 2 of the 3 seasonal animes I watched getting dropped. However, the last seasonal would prove to be a masterpiece in my opinion. That anime is Slow Loop, and in my opinion, is very underrated (even being overshadowed by Winter 2022's other CGDCT, Akebi).

Story - 10/10

Slow Loop's summary gives you the idea that it's a fishing anime, and that is true to an extent. However, family plays a key role in the story itself. Throughout the anime, we ...
