Swimmingggggggg

OST is okay I guess. The OP song is catchy though!

Oh I expected the fan service. Anyways, fun episode! I liked it. Haruka's pretty cool I guess. Oh and I did see a girl in this :p

Never mind, the OST is sick in a good way. Rin = cool as well. Decent start for this anime. I can't wait to see more~

Oh yeah , I'll be waiting for subs now to watch again.

After watching it subbed I only have words of praise for the first episode.

-The OP was awesome
-Animation was top-notch
-It wasn't as bad as people were saying.

Sasuga KyoAni , I hope the plot won't disappoint , I don't want to watch something like Tamako Market again , lol.

Water sakuga very good. OP so so. Some character sakuga indeed looks uneven occasionally. The sister looks really cool and moe !


Anyway, I give you all the biggest highlight of this episode but you need to beware 'coz it is HOT !!

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

So it's basically Kuroko no Basket with swimming... alright.

It doesn't seem dreadful so far but all the clothes flying off every minute made me fairly uncomfortable.

OP is so cool. They got reunited, and "revisited" the pool. lol~ and feeling very nostalgic about the memory. That red hair guy suddenly showed up and wanting for match up, who is different from younger time.

lol @ the girls who are talking about them, and one of the girls are that red hair guy's sister. Even that female teacher is so funny! lol @ the friend always direct the main guy using "pool".

ED is pop-y comparing to OP, but nice nonetheless (comparing to BroCon's Dancing ED, which is lol).

I still don't know how I feel about the anime, but I will continue watching it since I feel that it has potential for becoming better when that megane kouhai appears.

Since sports anime rarely suck, perhaps the series is promising if not great. The 1st episode wasn't bad to say the least.

It's weird how the first show Kyoani decides to inject fanservice into is a show aimed at girls, huh?

Lol @ hikoghert

I liked the ep, and the ED was pretty interesting. I missed the first 5 minutes and the OP, so I can't comment on that. I like Nanase and Rin. Makoto and Nagisa(?) are cute together too. It's too bad that it's only gonna be 12 episodes :(

Looks like the show is off to a good start. Typically for KyoAni the animation alone elevates this series to the top anime of the season. Now just hope they can keep the the premise fresh for the rest of its run.

Hahahha, it's like watching KuroBas all over again but with swimming instead and this time it does feel like it's targeted the female audience, not to mention that ending card hahahaha oh you silly new director.

Good, good. KyoAni went the Kuroko path instead of the Daily Life of High School Boys path so I can steer clear of this.

You don't know how hard I'm fan girling right now. I'm going to be patient and wait for subs (so I don't misinterpret everything they do and say. Yupp, I can totally see myself doing that) but I CANNOT even contain my excitement any longer. Can't wait to see some taking off clothes action, which by the way, left me utterly speechless after taking a look at that ED. Dang...

That ED...all of them are just so groovy and hip with their outdated dance moves.
Might I add that Haruka's hair flips can never be out classed.

Something about them being in a desert just made is so much more hot. If you know what I'm talking about
...yeah I really need to calm myself.

I see what you did there lol

I really needed to cool myself down too after see that. Once I watch that episode subbed I will be
freaking out and spazzing out in this discussion thread. With moderation, of course.

Yes, I don't have a Crunchy account because due to licensing limitations, the anime is not available in my region.

Hurray!

It's actually really sweet to see people so happy and excitied about this. Now I wait for people to cry and complain about the undertones and ruin it.

And with that, I copy and paste this lovely statement:
"You can enjoy anime with yuri undertones like Yuru Yuri and whatnot and not insult it, but the minute something panders to fujoshi it’s horrible?"

That's it, stick a fork in me i'm done. My soul is free now and I can transcend the heavens.
Bye guys i'm going home to sit and cry in my bathtub for the rest of the Summer.


Ahem. I appreciate Haru's affinity for stripping at the mere sight of water. What a good boy.

Freaking Nagisa was the first one to get naked, bet no one saw that coming.
It's always the shota that end up teasing everyone the most.

The ED is incredible I cannot even. A-1 take notes plz.

would watch forever/10

Yuru Yuri doesn't have the girls in constant lack of clothing though. Compare it to Senran Kagura or Samurai Bride or something. Those are horrible. Really bad comparison.

Since my overflowing excitement wouldn't allow me to wait for the subs, I watched it raw. This show is definitely going to make me and my ovaries VERY happy!

That ED...OMG!! Make us FREE!!

I really loved this, it might just be my inner fangirl speaking. But I honestly enjoyed watching every minute of this episode. And that Nagisa skinny dipping, dear. The animation was great, and the fan-service was acceptable.
