Hahahaha when Akira said "Oh my God!" I couldn't stop laughing. Best line of the anime.

After disliking the anime at the start, it eventually grew on me. 8/10! Will definitely miss it.

I like what Yuki said "Even if the world ends today, I just want to fish"

I knew it that Haru is the lure when the lure broke and because he is a fish.

wait, why is the dragon so small??

I'm glad to see Natsuki's long hair again.

Tapioca found his lover.

After all Yuki doesn't change.

This series is so heartwarming and nice.

that's was one crazy MASTERPIECE ! *o*

such good anime I haven't seen around for awhile ! From 1st till the last episode it was entertaining interesting and beautiful, I couldn't get off for a second until the end :)

Great idea, and I must tell that this is totally original one of the best idea about Bermude triangle mystery and aliens.. also it have psyhology point and presenting many personalities of characters and change in the humans ~
I like personally Yuki and how he got ride of that face thing and phobia of someone glaring at him XD (I am somehow like him I don't like other people paying attention to me heh)
loved all characters and art is nice and music too ! really enjoyed it's atmosphere ^^ beautiful anime and ending was great !
it's been for awhile that I am totally satisfied with the ending ~
btw YAMADA - SUGITA TOMOKAZU - HIDENORI - GINTOKI - SWITCH !!! I've got nuts when I heard him XD he always gives voice to cool & awesome dudes !

I am happy that Director (Joushi) believed in Yamada at the end ;3
and that dance .. XD

but what killed me was last scene Yamada on the boat : FISH FISH FISH.. Tapioca did you see it?
XD ahhhhhhh
love this !! 10/10 toally deserved and original and great !
I wish some specials though *o* (like Danshi :3)

The art is very pretty, the fishing aspect is fairly original, but overall, I felt it dragged on a bit despite being only 12 episodes, I never felt really excited to watch the next episode. It took me a month to finish this, which is probably the longest a 12 episode anime has ever taken me.

Didn't really like any of the characters, Yamada having Sugita as VA was nice but that was about it.

I really liked the OP and ED songs though.

Nice ending. Kind of sad to see Natsuki and Akira split up from Haru and Yuki but if everyone's happy that's all that matters! I love how captain and the girl finally got married too hehe.

8/10 from me. Tapioca is still the best character.

Even though I liked a few moments here and there, the one that stood out by the end of the episode was Yuki's development, really like what the writer did with him. The episode was fine for most of the part, except for the aliens going back home moment, it felt way too comical, it may be intended to be that way, but imo it just felt odd, and a little rushed.

the scene where Yuki was explaining what he figured out to Haru was scaring me it was like in detective / horror genres where they finally figured something out. i

Akira: OH MY GOD!!
and Tapioca was mad like "HEY FVCK YOU STOP THAT!!!!!"

it's raining fish, focking fish, that's ..... disgusting....
I was hoping that the mom's bracelet would somehow surprisingly show up with the fish rain (which I said is kind of disgusting)

Maybe Haru and Koko are royalties in their planet, because they're goddesses here
uwaaahhhh Urara is so pretty!!!!! he's so cuuuuteeee!!!! and his hair is so RAD

and Keito scenes are really lovely, aaaanndd we never got to see Yuki's parents :( kind of a let down but they didn't metter to the plot so creators didn't bother showing them

sooooo Urara's a fish and becomes human when 'dried', sooooooo Koko IS the fish that was with Haru when he was shown right????!!!!!!!!

Grandpa that painting SUCKS

Natsuki grew his damn hair, it kind of makes me sad he's not in Enoshima anymore, but he's living the dream so, but he didn't even graduate was that really okay, and about his family I don't care about them

What exactly was Akira doing??? the only thing we got was Tapioca got a lover... wat

AYUMI!!! MISAKI!!!(did i get their names right?!) G-O-T M-A-R-R-I-E-D!!!! ❤- but it's... not... as... sweet.. as before

Haru!!!!!!!❤❤❤❤❤ :D I honestly thought the whole class was going to pull an Enoshima dance when he entered

I wonder if Koko came back??? I hope she enrolled too!!! going senpai senpai all over the place and boys falling for her XD aahahaha

Yuki really grew as a character, he's so much better now ❤. and if this will have a season 2, I think it would gear towards him getting a gf :|.. because that's what it looked like

If you think about it the plot IS VERY SCARY, I was actually scared while watching it

this is a JOY to watch :)
you won't really enjoy it tilll about episode 4 i think??? you need to watch it
op and ed didn't sound good to me at first, but they grew on me so
ost i didn't notice any of it besides that Haru and Akira ones

'Oh my god' indeed why hadn't I picked this up earlier. This whole anime left a warm fuzzy feeling inside me and I loved every second of it with its bright colors and unique plot. I'm gonna miss all the characters ;;

10/10 ; one of those rare gems you don't encounter often

I ended up loving this series more than I ever thought I would. I loved the character development, the drama, pretty much everything about it. My only problem is Yuki's grandma, she rubs me the wrong way with the way she acts all happy no matter what moment or situation. I also didn't like how she was so dismissive of Yuki when Duck suspected they were hiding Haru: It doesn't matter if they have every reason to suspect them hiding Haru, they have no evidence to show they are, so Yuki does have every right to be angry at them.

I liked this series very much, really interesting and memorable. But the ending was a little bit weird for me. Didn't Yuki say in the previous episode that he's not going to let Haru go home and now what? They're both just saying goodbye just like that not even to each other but to the whole group hmmm

This episode was so bizarre lol. It was a great finale though. I thought it was kind of sad that the gang was split up, but Haru and Urara coming back made up for it.

Great as a feel good show and I enjoyed learning about fishing, but it was kind of boring sometimes. Tapioca is still the best.

P.S. If anybody ever wanted to know what NGE would be like as a feel good fishing anime, it'd be Tsuritama.

Beautiful ending. HARU CAME BACK❤️ I'm a little sad that Akira and Natsuki both left Enoshima, I wanted to see Akira interact more with the rest of them in everyday situations. But the ending was fitting for the show and really brought out all the emotions ;0; I loved seeing Yuki and Natsuki's growth, and even Haru grew, learning from his interactions with human beings. This anime hit so many buttons for me-- the characters and their friendships, the emotions, the wacky plot and humour, the eye-popping colours... Loved this one from the very beginning 10/10

This anime started out as a slice of life about fishing and the turned it into a sci-fi about aliens that needs to be fished. Nonetheless I was glued to the screen wondering what will happen next and what was Haru and Koko hiding, it turned out to be another alien they needed fished out to take back. It was a surprise also that Haru was not only an alien but a fish that can be a lure or bait, yeah that was surprising.

But the alien Urara didn't seem that bad in fact he seemed humble and a bit gay. I don't why they came back ( at school) especially Urara, since he caused that chaos. As for Haru coming back it will never be the same without Akira and Natsuki, so he should have never bothered.

Anyway I enjoyed it, so 8/10.

This ending doesn't make any sense. Everyone has their tastes but this is seriously far from a masterpiece.

Why didn't Urara return to his planet? Why did he decide to go on school after doing all that mess in the ocean? Why did he manipulate people in the first place if he's not evil? Was someone else controlling him?

I like the OP song. I didn't really enjoyed the series, but the way anxiety and social anxiety was presented was very accurate.
I rate 7/10, it should have been shorter

Why does it matter? he went back to his planet with Haru for 6 months. Haru probably told him "it's fun to just live a quiet life on earth" and convinced him to come back with him. He's quiet and shy as a human for the gap moe.

Strange ending because it split everyone up like that - I expected Akira to quit Duck, since he liked fishing, and maybe him and Natsuki would become partners on a fishing boat or something. At least Yuki got his boyfriend back and a cute sidepiece.

Sad they didn't do anymore with this, would have taken a nice non plot oriented ONA or OVA spin off. Oh well. Had a good time. Very cute and sweet show. People talk a lot about the representation of anxiety, which is fair enough - did anyone else get vibes from some of the early ep's about Haru not understanding Yuki as a kind of metaphor for autism or something like that?

Urara in his fish form was smaller than expected xD

Regarding the finale, well, definitely one of the sweetest conclusions for a single cour show I've seen in a while. It was so heartwarming that I almost teared up and the post credits scene made it even more wholesome.

Overall it was also pretty good. Quirky cast, relaxing slice of slife segments and friendship theme with proper development. Even the fishing aspect was somehow utilized to the fullest haha. Yep, I'm satisfied.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake.

What an intense episode. Overall, I really like this anime. I'm glad Misaki and Ayumi got married and Natsuki followed his dreams. I like the part when Haru bid farewell to Keito. And Yuki had changed his personality. Urara is the first transfer student, how about the second one? Koko is safe! Whew!

This is such a wholesome, uplifting and inspirational series for me. Somehow I enjoyed it more on a rewatch than the first time around. It's colorful, has great music and has many likable characters! The story is a bit of an odd combination of things but it worked for the type of light series it is.

Now I want to go fishing!!

That was a million watt smile at the end by haru.
“The sound of the Gion Shoja temple bells echoes the impermanence of all things;
The color of the sala flowers reveals the truth that to flourish is to fall.
The proud do not endure, like a passing dream on a night in spring;
The mighty fall at last, to be no more than dust before the wind.”
