that's probably one of the worst anime i've ever seen. And this thing came out in 2021? What a shame ...

Story : 2
Is there a story ? I forgot that the MC wanted to surf with his "friends" before they left for their studies to enjoy the "magic of surfing"

Art : 5
For the moment the animation is not that bad, waves and sea are pretty clean for the moment, even if there is some unnecessary 3d at some moments...

Sound : 3
No particular intereset on the soundtracks, at least my ears are not bleeding, unlike my brain. The opening is why not-tier.

Character : 1 read more

I am... dissapointed to say the least. I've been looking forward to a surfing anime for years, and when I finally saw this announced a while back, I was so excited, I spent months getting excited, for the first episode to come out.
While watching it, I felt bored by it. Still, I hoped that it would get better in the next episodes, but I was sorely mistaken. I've watched the first 3 episodes so far, and honestly, I can't remember much of what actually happened in it. The plot is just not strong enough.
The character design is alright, the characters don't look exceptionally bad or read more

Genuinely awful....
I already disliked it from the first episode but I tried giving it a chance and I will still finish it. Usually if something like a sports anime doesn't have good plot it doesn't really bother me, anime's like that are more about enjoyability. However this lacks in every department possible.

The Pacing:
What could have been fit into half an episode backstory or something that spread out through flashbacks was dragged out for 5 episodes. There's only 12 episodes in this season. By the time we finally get to what I assume is the actual plot were already halfway through the anime read more

Wave, follows the main character Masaki Hinaoka on the beginning of his surfing journey. At the beginning Masaki didn't have much interest in surfing until he experienced the surfing of his soon to be friend Sho Akitsu. The beginning of the show follows through the friend ship of the trio, Masaki, Sho and Nalu and the bond between them and surfing.

When I first saw this series announced on twitter I was over the moon, seeing the teaser art and characters slowly being revealed gradually built up the hype more and more. The three part film was released in Japan last October and to everyones surprised read more
