THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The 3 of them are eating together and discuss about fishing. It's time to buy their own good fishing goods (with that Indian guy explaining through monologue at the side). And that fishing thing is expensive. So they decided to work for that owner for the summer to get money by fishing. As well as that Indian guy.

They are laughing at his nervous face (not being afraid). So the guy wasn't trying to runaway now. After one failure, he succeeded.

After that, they got the money.

Airing 10 mins. late next time.

Yuki is getting confident about himself and doesnt freak out as easily now. I hope he catches a big one. He is working really hard for that fishing gear he wants.

I am so super pleased by the character development that's happening lately. <3 You go, Yuki.

& I really hope Akira joins their "crew" properly soon, him saying he doesn't need friends to Tapioca broke my heart.

it was nice
story progresses and characters develop - always nice to see it
as Yuki was a bit irritating

but it's better now
yet will they keep up with it - and won't go into direction of sick grandmother who dies, crisis and such (I hope they won't do it) some creative ending would be most welcome here :)

Progressing nicer than I thought it would.

I laughed in that part where Haru sprays his sister with water, she's kind of annoying.

I can't help but hate Yuki. He's just so..blah. Idk how to describe it, but I don't like his character. I like everyone elses just fine especially Akira Agarkar Yamada, hes my favorite out of the four w/ the duck.

However, it looks like he changes throughout half the episode, seems to be getting used to everything now.

Good job to Yuki! Natsuki is not a prick anymore. He's gotten really nice.

Akira needs to join them already, dammit.

I did enjoy this episode but I thought it was weaker than the previous ones, I don't see much worth mentioning. Yeah, Yuki made some progress but that wasn't somehow enough for me. Yamada is cool, hope he joins them soon.

I hate Koko, I wish she wasn't there and boy do I hate Yuki's troll face, it really started to piss me off, it just isn't funny anymore.

Like always i just love every episode.

Tapioca always seems to get into fights withthat cat. What a gangster duck! hahaha


100.000 yen for all the fish gear wow.

When yuki makes this face it always cracks me up.


Ayumi is also hilarious when he run after Misaki gives him a compliment lol.


Here they go to become Men of the Sea XD.
Yuki is soo funny crawling on the deck haha poor guy.

I give Haru a 10 also.


Haru is always adorable look at the face.


How cute is Yuki with that stone fish face XD


It was a OH SNAP moment when Natsuki told Akira Agarkar Yamada for saying that yuki wouldnt show up.
Natsuki :"You dont have any friends, do you?
Yamada: " :o "
Yeah thats what i thought hahhaa. Well atleast he has Tapioca.

ENOSHIMA BOWL!!!! Getting into some real action with that. Plus, i was soo happy yuki finally got a mahi-mahi. His becoming more confident *Good job Yuki*


Now Yuki has money now and a lot of great memories!


And like always i am felt with a big smile :D

I'm really disliking what we've seen of Koko as of yet, too, tbh. I wouldn't go as far as to say hate, but I'm really not fond of her. :\

So that dance in the OP actually has a name? Cool.

And yep, I liked the character development Yuki got here. The cast is just so adorable here; I can't help but feel happy for them when things start going well for them! Something about this episode felt a little weaker than the last few, but the good parts made up for it overall.

I feel bad for Akira, though. Stuck watching a bunch of buddies hang out and fish from the sidelines with a duck as his only friend... Even if he won't admit it bothers him, you can tell it does. Oh well, he's in the OP with the other three; I'm sure he'll lose his forever alone status sooner or later along with some of his haughtiness.

What do we know about her, anyway? All we've seen her do is nag her brother about giving up on Yuki; there's pretty much nothing to like about her from that (apart from her looks, I guess).

As someone whose general feelings about this show so far have been perfectly summed up by the word "meh", I came into this episode expecting it to be okay. As it turns out, I fucking loved it! First ep of this show that I've given a 5. Maybe it just took 5 episodes for me to get attached to the characters and get immersed in the story, but either way, this episode was so good. I loved how Natsuki, Haru, and Yuki are finally like a real group of friends and are all working together, and I loved seeing Yuki go through his struggles and come back with the net he fixed, right after his friends said that they knew he would make it. Left me with a big smile on my face. This show is really picking up for me.

First of all, trying to do that dance durning the OP is unbelieveably fun.
Second of all, great episode! I love the character development for Yuki here. He's actually growing a pair. I never thought I'd see it.
I LOVED Ayumi in this ep and how he was so cool about everything. WHY haven't I had a boss like that!?
After the net breaking and they got home I was thinking to myself, "Oh crap, not another episode where the idiot pouts for a day." But no! He came to the job and had fixed the net. Horray for growing up a little!
I'm looking forward to Akira actually getting a personality hopefully soon.

I have a feeling the next episodes is gonna be one of the typical plots of this genre.
I hope it's at least conveyed well like the previous episodes and also entertaining, but it may be something unique like the previous episodes. I'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Yeah, but there is probably not much money in there cause Dad had one day jobs before and only got payed like $50~$200.

I would be puking on the side of the boat the entire time instead of fishing or netting fish xD.

I really really want them to get to the part about how they are going to save the world through fishing. This episode was great, although I will miss Yuki's weird face, it was great development for him as a character. It feels like the grandma was literally put on the bus. I know she is in the hospital but he hasn't visited her?

^_^ Silly thing I caught on to with the names:

-Haru means Spring
-Natsuki pertains to Natsu, which means Summer
-Akira pertains to Aki, which means Autumn
-Yuki means Snow, which adds up to Winter

..I feel kinda slow that I just realized that. XD

Excellent episode, just as good as the previous ones, Yuki has a perfect VA that sounded just as happy as he looked. Couldnt helpt but feel so connected to him and happy by the end there that there were tears when he was so inspired from Natsuki that he ended up standing and then catching the Mahi Mahi, shouting to the people cast away even, and earning the paycheck. Natsuki is really having a profound effect on him, much more so than Haru fortunately. The writer of the show has developed him well. Natsuki too. Akira Agarkar must be getting time next I think seems to have a deficiency in friends based on that friendly banter from Natsuki and him, so hopefully that does transpire.

Didnt think crocs were made for fishing.

EXCELLENT EPISODE.

Made me feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside by the end of the episode. ;)

The characters are actually developing already! I expected Yuki to hide in bed all day again but wow, was I wrong :D.

Probably favourite episode yet. 5/5

Guess I wasn't much in the mood for the happy feelings this episode, too distracted by the small subtleties that caught my attention; the mention of the Bermuda triangle, a nod to the Dragon's triangle that has been a motive in another Nakamura Kenji work; Mononoke. And Ayumi's quick mention of Benzaiten (Benten).
Next episode seems to give more focus to the Enoshima legend, this will be interesting.

It's always difficult for a timid person to overcome shyness and feelings of embarassment. Therefore, all the more props for Yuki for being able to accomplish that.

And Haru was running with him too XD with no reason at all.
Yuki looks cooler now that he changed. Though he still makes that nervous (funny) face.

Beautiful episode :)

And wow, I feel stupid. I always thought mahi-mahi was dolphin -___- At least I learned now :P

4/5 - Wished we could have seen more of the tension with Natsuki and his family.
