Unless they end up walking around half naked I don't see this series working at all... High school girls survival sounds as dumb as high school girls on warships.

It's a survival comedy. And believe me, it worked. Manga version is actually quite educational.

Check these out. These are what you can expect.

To compare it to hs girls on warships makes me even more hype. Now I got something to look forward to!

Oh, it’s Studio Ezola!

I enjoyed the Happy Sugar Life anime so hopefully this will be entertaining too, for one thing they’ve got the same Director! Synopsis sounds rather intriguing too, and the music is guaranteed glorifying thanks to Akituki Tateyama.

Looking forward to this, I suppose.

That's some cheap looking animation and art and would've rather if it took itself seriously and wasn't too "comedic" and was more "dark"

This anime is "educational" and is about a family getting trapped on an island

Looks like JK Bear Grylls and 3 plot devices. I guess it might work as a pure comedy.

MAL says it's drama, people say it's comedy. If it's really the latter then it sounds like something I'll ejnoy.

It isn't related to it. It's pretty much a comedy with many educational parts about survival and a bit of fanservice sometimes.

The fanservice is minimal compared to the other elements of the series. The survival information is it's biggest thing.

This looks interesting. There aren't many manga or anime that I know of that are about island survival. This really is an interesting setting and there are a lot opportunities for the development of an intricate and detailed plot. I hope that it does not delve too far into comedy, though.

This could be mediocre or it could be a big surprise like Yuru Camp.
Only time will tell.

Looks nice, another Ezo'la anime from the same director as Happy Sugar Life.

Why does this setting remind me a lot of the TV series 'Lost'???

The PV looks alright but... I'd say the people in the staff looks decent.

Sounds fun.
The animation of the PV is not pleasing to my eyes, but I can overlook animation in favor of good jokes in a comedy.

@Antanaru @moodie @Akerakai

this is like danberu nan kilo. the author is legit enthusiast and expert in the field and make educative series about their knowledge then use comedy fanservice to make it entertaining. his previous works is non fiction autobiography manga about author life as an actual hunter. it's not everyday you get mangaka who is also a hunter.
https://myanimelist.net/manga/59257/Sanzoku_Diary

"The hero and author of Sanzoku Diary is Okamoto Kentarou. When he was young, he lived out in the country, and he knew an old man who was a hunter. In 2009, Kentarou was inspired to leave Tokyo and return to Okayama Prefecture to become a hunter himself. Using an air rifle and traps, Kentarou hunts, prepares and eats various animals. The manga covers all his hunting-related activities in close detail."

his previous works is way more like guide books, it's gritty and realistic.

so yeah, keep being prejudice just because there is fanservice, you will gain nothing. also for moodie so you don't get wrong expectation..

this is Ryuuou no Oshigoto and sangatsu no lion all over again... one works is looked down just because there is fanservice, despite it has author of actual shogi player and the one appreciated by shogi association.

looking forward.

As many said already : some good survival tips, light-hearted, contextual fan-service (girls on a beach with warm climate).


It goes along the line of Yuru Campu but it's a lot less nice-cute-warm-fluffy-cosy so it might not be the cup of tea of any Yuru campu fan. Sounan desu ka will probably not be as popular even if the adaptation is good.

I'm a simple man. I see Waki Azumi in the cast, I PTW. Plus, it looks interesting and probably gonna have lots of fanservice. Sweet.
Not sure which is more cancerous...The Facebook comment sections or MAL anime reviews.
