Through surfing, Masaki meets irreplaceable friends and experiences farewell as he becomes an adult. It is the beginning of a never-ending story of boys fascinated by the charm of surfing.

YAPPE...a surfing anime! Let's go ride the Waves! Surfing Yappe!! Show must go on!
...only except that this is not only just bad, but it's boring also, catering to the niche audiences. And being the TV version of a 3-part film trilogy released in October 2020, I'd presume that the reception for this is moderately lukewarm (when COVID is still a thing), but who the hell was thinking to green-lit the "complete edition" TV version to milk more of the mixed-media project. This should've just stayed in Japan and not come out either way, we don't need mediocrely bad shows like this to waste our precious read more

[SPOILER WARNING! There are spoilers written under the story and character sections of this review, so if you haven't watched Wave, you'll be fine if you skip those sections. I don't ever write spoilers in my reviews, but for this show it's ridiculously unavoidable, so I apologize in advance.]

Overall: 4/10
All I can say is... what...? I've been so excited to watch this anime ever since I saw an announcement around September or October in 2020, but it was a huge let down. The story is painfully dry and jumps from place to place with no real motivation or reasoning. I don't particularly recommend watching this read more

it's probably one of the worst things i've ever seen in my life, they managed to take hoshiai no sora's place as the worst sports anime.

the 3D of this anime is horrible, characters stuck and without fluidity. 2D is reasonable, but it has its errors in a few hours. I have to give a positive point to the color palette, it matched a lot with the anime.

let's talk about character design: Wave is probably the anime with the ugliest characters I've ever seen. I thought it was not possible to create an ugly 2D character, but Wave showed me that it is possible. the read more

This anime really had me thinking that they were pulling something interesting in the middle, but, alas, I was misled. Honestly, it isn't a bad show, it just isn't worth watching. There were some solid characters in there who were genuinely likable, but overall the writing was not great. I think the best way to watch this show is with a friend that you can make fun of it with-- it's how I watched it and is really the only way I was able to get any enjoyment out of it. Also, fair warning because this show has No Warning, you probably shouldn't watch this read more
