Beautiful visual art, nice music, good overall C: I liked it but let's see how it goes 'cause I didn't find it very interesting.

I don't always post here but I thought some fans would be interested in the religious/mythological motifs in the first episode:

Upon scrutiny, a lot of the seemingly random and nonsensical elements seem to come together to support the 'saving the world' plot. It's likely there's a lot more to the story than what we expect.

Whoa, what the hell did I just watch? It was weird but I find the different art styles altogether very interesting. All that randomness and craziness must be really for something if the main character's narration at the end is to be believed. I think Tsuritama is going to take me to a ride out there, and I'm already excited for the next episodes.

It's also puzzling that the grandmother readily accepted Haru to stay in the house which they just literally moved in just several hours ago. Anyway, my initial impression of her was that she's a wickedly cool grandma! XD Where can I get one of those COOL grandma? LOL

Was that Sugita's voice on the Indian with a goose or uhmm... was that a duck? >_< I find that his voice is unmistakable anywhere.

So, does Kimi to Boku really get better? Because for me, right now, it's really boring. I was a bit worried that Tsuritama was going to bore me too. I'm glad it didn't Judging from first episodes at least, I have to say that Tsuritama's first episode >>>>> Kimi to Boku's first episode. Tsuritama managed to do something that Kimi to Boku didn't: it captivated me. Of course, this can all change the farther I progress into both series.

If you´re not a true slice of life fan (those types that watch anime with very veryyyy slow pace where almost nothing happens) then ktb will always be boring to you, because its slow and it does not contain fantasy. if you enjoyed animes like Honey and Clover, then you will love it because its precisely almost the same the only difference is that the romantic development will only start near the end of the series and it will still not be the series main focus. will form your own opinion about it;)

Tsuritama is amazing, loved every bit, but even though its a slice of life, its mostly fantasy. KtB is also amazing on its own way, and for now I fav it to this one, but only when I reach the end of Tsuritama I will be able to judge it properly for myself.
this might become better or worse, who knows. For now Im deeply entertained , hope it keeps the quality, since its really good.

The town's colors somehow reminded me of Ao no Exorcist's - especially that bridge.

Animes like these are just my cup of tea. Weird characters in a slice of life story. I have the feeling it's going to get serious, though. Either way, all's good! :)

Can't wait for the next episode!

That was the weirdest thing I've seen so far in my anime history.


What on earth??
Alien no shit. :)))
A turban wearing Indian who talks to a Goose?

Jeez. Cute nonetheless. ^_^

I love the direction, the animation, the art!
Yuki's freaked out face totally reminds me of Air Gear!
I love how he keeps drowning in his block of water. :) That's... really cool to show. :)

LOL. Strange indeed, but enjoyable!

I'm not too big of a fan of this impressionistic style of anime, i prefer watching something solid but i'll give it a few episodes to see if it has a good story hidden behind all of it.

Just when I thought that I was bad at communicating with people, Yuki is way worse at it than i do.

Not a bad episode. Love the art style in this show! It's so bright and vibrant. The characters stand out as well. Will keep on watching! Onto episode 2! ^^

Well, another male character with anxiety problems. Not surprised that Haru thinks he's an alien, he might very well be compared to the rest of the cast. Was kind of confused about the animals talking. Maybe they do, maybe they don't but they're importent I guess.

Lovely vibrant world though.

I absolutely looove the artwork in this anime. The town that the main character is in has such a calming effect. I think its hilarious how Haru has his own theme music and the main character is interestingly funny enough to keep me attached in this fishing theme.

Hmmm a little strange but I like it so far, the characters seem really interesting. I like Yuki and Haru the most, they look like a funny duo :)

Can't wait to see where this show is going.

The art style is very appeasing to the eyes.
This anime is about fish or something?

wow, what a refreshing opening episode....

loved all the randomness (man talking to the duck was just hilarious) absolutely LOVED the animation and bright colours.... Haru was slightly annoying I will admit, just hope I can find some way to get over that, he was amusing in some parts however.

Loved how they portrayed Yuki when he was having to do the introductions and stuff to the class, so far so good for me, hope it continues!

This looks very different, I guess it's the style. I like the colours (very bright) and the design of the house. And I recognise that voice anywhere...Gintoki's seiyuu, Sugita Tomokazu! XD

Quite interested to know about why Yuki felt that way (immersed in water) and the power of Haru's gun. Looking forward to when that character with Gintoki's seiyuu would appear!

My reacton while watching the first episode is... hard to describe....
It was a mixture with sort of disgust yet appeal for this anime... it's so strange... I like the theme, but everything is like WTF is happening? And.... A bit awkward ;P

So colorful. I'm choosing to watch this in the next day or so just for the artstyle.
But, the atmosphere is also great in this.

Someone was high on something when they made this show, but I like how different it is, so I'll keep watching.

Good first episode! It was very interesting. I absolutely love the art work, the colors and animation. The OSTs aren't bad either. Haru is such a weird character looking forward to watching more of him.

The art style is really fun and gives me good vibes. The music in general seems pretty upbeat and soothing.

Other than that, I'm not too sure about this show. Yuki is way too embarrassing to watch and Haru's really annoying. I'll have to see how the next few episodes go for me.

oh my god That house is perfect

What a very pretty alien... I mean really he's so pretty *0* Why did he pick such a small water gun, yeah okay for convenience

Yuki Sanada looked like Ichiya(?) that ugly dude from fairy tail, during his panic attack. Red hair and all, it was creepy. I, I can actually relate to him in some regard
ahahahahahaha what Haru from Free! would do to feel like he's always in the water, and I'm imagining that he wouldn't mind if he gets controlled by that water gun

Oh look a cool guy, and an Indian Prince? Wealthy person? and a duck

This looks like it's going to be tiring to watch and is very strange

I have a feeling that the water is a symbolic peace for "new" and "cooling" since A) it took Yuki's move to the ocean to begin to make friends and B)the water gun Haru uses has the effect of literally cooling down the characters emotions (Yuki's anger and the black haired one's pettiness towards other people).

---The End.
