Haru said goodbye to everyone, and he said he's catch him himself.

Head up is going to release the missile (it's not much time), including giving up Akira. The megane head up saying wait for them.

Yuki thinking about what they've been done and the legend in slideshow. Yuki's yelling made his hair electrifying and he's back to normal. So Haru, the fish alien who came with his sister to the earth, is the legendary lure (the fish on the fishing equipment)? They are using Haru to catch that legendary fish! WOW~~, and they got it!! Haru knows the lyric to the Enoshima dance, so they are singing and dancing while getting it!! (Someone please make gif for the part where Haru going and becoming fish!! I was so impressed with the whole part especially his jump to go through that huge boat.)

Typhoon is gone. Some of the people got affected, but after typhoon is gone. Missile hasn't shot, fortunately. Wow, the fish is small and his sister is fine. Then another alien from that little fish (Urara) after Akira getting them smoked them. Aliens left, and everyone's on their own way. They said goodbye, grandma who is faraway and seems to hear it, so she said goodbye.

6 months later, Prince of fishing, who got long hair @ US fishing. Akira @ other places fishing, and the pet has a lover!! Urara transferred (I wonder who's the another transfer student? Haru again?)!! Yuki improved a bit. LOL~~ thought so!! Haru is the one!! He appeared after the ED!!

I kinda expected it from the start that Haru should play the lure role, because he is a fish.

Overall, very nice. Touching friendship. Intense fight. Fascinating concept.
Solid 8/10.

I cried at the end, not because it was sad, but it was really sweet and fulfilling.

That was a really pleasing ending, I was afraid that it would be terrible! I always like epilogue endings! There was a few parts through the series that I didn't like, but overall it was amazing, in my top 10 or my ever changing top 5. The characters and execution made this show what it is. Only good shows are able to sway the audiences emotion like this. Tsuritama did just that.

9/10 for the entire series. Clean animation (especially for the last three episodes!), great development, unique characters, and a good storyline.

I also feel fulfilled in guessing how they would catch Urara. His human form is adorable.

XD YAMADA going "OH MY GOD!" was a huge win in my book.
So was Haru going "nom", it was SO cute!
And the last, Haru's singing. :3 Always nice to hear Miyu Irino's singing, no matter how the pitch is, no matter how short or how long.

Heh, Ayumi got married, Tapioca got a girlfriend, Natsuki got his long hair back and has a new sibling on the way, and Yuki never changed much. T.T AND HARU CAME BACK!

... *Clings to anime* <3

It was obvious anyway!

That was a FANTASTIC ending!!! This series was really good and so heartwarming overall, love how everybody was happy at the end.

I also love how Urara the Dragon and Haru came back to Earth and became students, so looks like Yuki will still have friends to fish with.

Not exactly the way I wanted them to wrap things up, but still fulfilling nonetheless. It was a great anime. Totally worth my time.

I'll just have to say 8/10 for the time being.

Wahhh I think I was a bit too excited about crying my eyes out, because I feel upset that it didn't make me cry LOL ahhhh it was so nice that it had me smiling and laughing by the end though, like it was for the first half of the series~

Thank God Haru was okay and they showed him coming back... I felt like screaming when it cut to the credits before they showed who the second transfer student was!

I'll miss this series so much, it was great! <3

Great finale to my second favorite anime of the year!

Yuki's transformation throughout the series was wonderful to watch. I loved how the conclusion to the big threat was handled. The scenes during the epiloguel were terrific, particularly the hilarious moment between Ayumi and Misaki.

Despite a somewhat mediocre first impression, the series improved greatly each episode. The storyline and characters were exceptional, making for a thoroughly exciting experience. Overall, by the end, it has become one of my favorites of the year and is a superb 9/10!

Another satisfying final episode, the dragon had to be a small fish and really liked the scene with Haru as lure.
I wondered why Yuki let Haru go home but he returned with Urara, so that's a nice happy ending.

Tapioca found a lover haha

True, not that much but remember the first episode, it showed that he changed.

Nice ending. Will definitely gonna miss it. But i was kinda hoping that they will have a reunion and go fishing together after many months.. But anyway, it was really entertaining.. Btw, I can't stop laughing from Akira's "Oh my god". Haha. Superb. I kept on repeating that scene many times already... And good thing I waited after the ending song. I was relieved that Haru came back.. and the students recognized him as the alien.. Lol.

My thoughts exactly when Haru went super fish mode, Yuki showing us his awesome fishing skills, and everyone getting hypnotized. That whole scene had me on the edge of my seat.

This group shot reminded me that this amazing series was comming to a close. Even though Akira and Natsuki have gone thier seperate ways but they will always be fishingbros.

Yes Yuki I will fish with you anytime ;_; oh man he has changed so much Since the show started.

I'm really going to miss this show, it gave so much happiness ;_; I'll never forget Yuki and his fishbros. Overall 10/10 for my Favourite show this season.

A very nice way to wrap up the show while leaving lots of opportunity for a sequel. If it wasn't for the middle of the show being weak it could of been one of my all time favorite shows but sadly you can't change what it is, either way I will miss this show 8/10.

Alright, as I write up my review, I'm trying to hold the tears (because the ending...) and more importantly holding back my smile, because this show has been by far the most positive series - everything isn't sugar coated or fake, but realistically positive and for a show that features aliens that's a huge compliment. The characters were amazing and their development and changes were realistically portrayed and kept growing up to this episode.

Welcome to my top 5, Tsuritama. You're joining some very special series, and you yourself were an amazing series that I'll never forget. You've honestly made me a happier person than before from watching you.

9.5/10 and top 5 status with Natsume, Steins;Gate, Baccano! and Usagi Drop

Such a great episode and with a good ending too. :) The fishing part was my favorite moment and how Haru's clothes were flying back to the boat and Tapioca dancing the Enoshima dance :D
Turned out that the alien they fished out was something quite the opposite of what I expected. SO SMALL!!!! And in human form he's very weird, just like Haru :D

It started out so dull for me, so I can't believe I ended up loving it so much as I do now. I wonder if I just was in the wrong mood at the start.

Such a perfect ending, wrapping everything up nicely. Felt like a movie, for some reason.

Akira's "oh my god" just kind of made the whole episode.
The ending was really nice and it was a good ending to a good series. I love Urara; I wish he would have gotten more screentime.

Who knew that a fishing anime would turn out to be this good? c':

Wow, that was such a great episode.. I wish Haru's goodbye was a little better done though. It seemed rushed. Besides that, I had no complaints.

I really loved Tsuritama, and I looked forward to watching it. It was such a wonderful, cute show and I'm sad that it's over.

Haru at the end made me really happy though :) It ended kind of like Dusk Maiden, but in a less troll, BS way haha.

I was debating between a 7 or an 8, but I've decided on an 8/10 because of the unique setting and characters. Not a particularly memorable show, but something that does have a special place in my heart<3

As poster above said, Akira's (or rather, Gin-san<3)"Oh my God." made the episode epic haha.

Also, I just need to say that the ED of Tsuritama was perfect for the mood. When the episode ends, I get so happy because the ending fits extremely well. So calming too :)

Great anime, Good ending. Kinda sad, we didn't see Coco at the end, and did Grandma come back to Enoshima? XD One of the best animes this season. Will definitely rewatch. :D

I originally started watching this anime just because I liked the art. I never thought it would end up being one of my favorite animes ever. The ending gave me a nice, warm, fuzzy feeling. I love anime like that.

I'm so sad that it's over. It doesn't look like there will be anything this good next season.

My final rating is 8/10.

I thought Yuki was going to play the lure last episode, since his hair is red.

Overall Great episode and great series. Loved the scene with Tapioca dancing. This has been a fun ride and I'm kind of sad that it's over

I had little desire to watch this series; most likely due to the fact that I have ZERO interest in fishing. I'm so glad I gave it a decent shot as it turned out to be quite entertaining!

Ahem. Now.

I thought the anime was okay. The art/animation was great, but everything else was alright(even kind of bad)for me, I guess. I think the only thing that got me to keep with this show is my obsession with fishing.
The ending was kinda nice though and I really liked Urara. Ahah.

6/10 :D

This was better than I had originally thought it was going to be based on the pre-season synopsis. I think it's a pretty solid 8, largely because of the animation (I'm a sucker for bright and shiny things...). There were some moments of drama in the last three episodes, but in the end no deaths and no permanent damage. It was really a feel-good show.
Please don't feed the trolls!

Magnificent ending. This show is pure fun and i'm so sad it's over, but also okay since that ending was very satisfactory and even better than i expected.
I predicted Haru would be the lure and the big boss would be a tiny fish, but it was still fun watching them all work to catch Urarara, who's human form is cute as hell, and Yuki/Haru continue their fishing adventures.

The only thing i was iffy about was Natsuki going all the way to the US to fish. A little overboard for me, but hey, he loves fishing so whatever.

I was initially going to rate this an 8, but i enjoyed the ending so much this is getting a solid 9 from me.

Haru Urara means peaceful spring in Japanese. Yuki is snow, Aki is fall, and Natsu is summer.

Haru melted Yuki's AT field. Then peaceful spring had come in Enoshima.
