THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The story getting serious with Haru's pink hair megane sister telling the main guy to save the world with fishing and prince of prince teaching fishing (with appearance of his sister).

The water gun is a way to control people, and pink hair sister is fish shapedk.

The main guy is failed, and prince of fishing scolding him. Then passing Indian guy.

Life of prince of fishing. He doesn't like his father bringing another woman other than their late mother to home. Grandma telling Haru to leave him alone to think about something. After a night's thinking, he's being serious now (since he admit that he was not serious). Then he told Haru to refrain being so intimate and said he will fish.

Indian guy felt trouble, and he's in the same class as them!! ON TOP OF THAT, he's 25!!

Hahaha... that class just got an interesting bunch of transfer students, didn't it.

This show is so fun, but in such a weird way. It's hard to put a finger on exactly why it is so enjoyable.

I find Yuki so likeable so far, I don't know why.
Great episode, I'm loving this series (it'll probably be my favorite one this season)
Also dat Tapioca.

Was surprised when Yamada, or whatever name he goes by, said he was 25 years old.

Also looks like Natsuki's having some family issues.

I'm starting to dislike Haru, now even his sister is showing up. I'm worried about the alien stuff, at this point I don't want it to be in here and Yuki's social issues are ridiculous.

I like Yamada and his duck a lot, 25 years old and attending school sounds great and I want to see more of Erika.

I hope Yamada offsets some of Haru's bubbly craziness. Then again, when you have a duck named Tapioca....

Looks like Yuki's grandma is going to die from that Chekhov's cough of hers.

Love the op and the dance :P
Somehow Yuki reminds me of myself. Of course not that extreme. That's probably why he's my favorite.

Does this series have the next episode preview? I really can't wait for the next one.

They definitely weren't going for subtlety with that one. Great episode either way, I'm really starting to love this series.

Well, at least it's safe to say that the Indian guy is by far my favourite character, and he'll probably provide the most laughs in this show. Him coming out of the ground at the beach totally caught me off guard. xD

Holy shit Haru is so in love with Yuki. Too bad Yuki is going to have hate sex with Natsuki though.

I mean, the OP is really nice. I don't really have much to say except that I really like this anime and hope it continues being awesome.

It's like Arakawa ub but a million times better thanks to Nakamura's direction and vision. Plus Tsuritama has heart and fantastic characters. I think it may be my favourite new series of the season at the moment.

Another great episode. Some of the story was revealed, wonder where that indian guy fits in. The main character already made some progress at the end, which is great since i hate that face too :P

Such an excellent show! I love the characters, and how Yuki is slowly developing bit by bit. His progress in fishing is a nice metaphor for his progress in interacting with others. And that OP was great, too. XD

Full thoughts on the episode here.

Tsuritama's art work reminds me of Eijin Suzuki's drawings.
He also lives in Shonan area.



ED is Spitz's song. About 15 years ago? Anohana used Zone's song and this time, Spitz. Is this the trend?

An Indian appears. In the K-on movie, an Indian also appears.

The OP is excellent those colors and such. Yuki and Natsuki were cool there through the progression, and glad Natsuki smiled at Yuki for making some progress and actually talking. The school students, their classmates honestly seem more odd than the students, starring and being that intrigued.

Pretty nice episode and story is getting serious. This episode was MY episode as I was waiting to see Coco in action. I love her. She looks very pretty in this scene:



Haru is so cute, makes me want to hug him. No homo

Also this:



And this:



Very lulz.

So, um, yeah, Tsuritama is being better than my expectations. Pretty good until now and I'm in love with it.

This was only okay for me, just like the first episode. I haven't found it particularly funny or exciting, but it's keeping me interested enough to press onwards. I don't think I'm gonna drop it, especially because now I'm excited for the next episode, if that is in fact where the story begins. Hoping that story is good, because so far, I'm liking this the least out of the spring anime I've seen. I think I just need to see more though, I can't make real judgments two eps in.

I have no idea why I like this, I don't like fishing or fish at all, but it's so colorful and so many quirky characters I just can't help it And boy did I laugh when yamada and his duck showed from under the sand, I was waiting for something to happen but I didn't expect that .

This show is strange and unique. I'm liking it.

Is it me, or does Haru remind anyone of Yuno Gasai from Mirai Nikki with his attachment to Yuki, and his repeated "Yuki!"?

Dat Indian guy i almost died when he came out of the sand i was like *wait did they really just do that?..* haha and the Op is pretty funny with that dance.

only a tad bit worried about Haru in the factor of if things don't go his way something bad might happen.

Looks like everyone's here. Even the Haru's sister was weird, so they really must be aliens. LOL

I actually learned how to tie the uni-knot, do I really have to bite the knot with my mouth and drool on it a bit before sliding it?

The anime is ok atm but for me though i honestly dont like half the characters.
Haru is beyond annoying and im pretty sure he is mentaly handicapped they should of tonned him back a bit then they even add his just as annoying glasses i want to punch her in the face sister who just screams im a bitch.
Yuki for me is over the top socially awkward i think they are laying it on a bit thick with him like they took it a bit to far that it feels a little forced, though he is already showing signs of taking steps forward so i cant hate on him to much.
For some reason i can not bring myself to like the grandmother either but i cant quite place my finger on why.

I do like the rest of the characters though and the story looks like it can be intresting which is why i have not even thought of dropping it and i still quite like it.

Haru is a cheerful alien? Instant like. Yuki is a weird MC? Instant thumbs up.
Indian guy is voiced by Sugita? Instant grin. Natsuki is an onii-chan? INSTANT I LOVE YOU.

I read all the comments and was surprise no one seems to notice the names. I'm not sure there is some intentional meaning, but from the opening scene, probably:
Yuki --> winter (snow)
Haru --> Spring
Natsuki --> Summer (natsu)
Akira --> Fall (aki)

[EDIT]oh! just find the references on post #154 episode 1 ^^

Random guess about the story ^^


I want the next episode!!! No, I need the next episode!!!!!

the fish on his head is his imouto, since at the 1st episode, it caledl haru "onii-chan"...

And yes i believe that Haru is an alien fish or something..or maybe he is the same species as the "Beautiful princess coming from the sky, riding on a purple cloud" who saves the world before, because they both saying the word "PACHI!" at the 1st episode... XD
