Michiru is a high school boy who isn't really good at anything, including sports and socializing. He likes watching one of his classmates, Haruka, as she practices swimming. Haruka happens to be the only member of the swimming club associated with his school. As she and the coach search for members, she notices him and innocently believes he's been watching her because he really wants to swim. Michiru is unable to say no to her invitation to the club, even though he's never swam before and has no idea how it's done. Michiru finds his life changing as Haruka patiently teaches him how to swim.

Frogman is a moderately ecchi seinen romantic comedy about a nice, nonathletic boy (who can't swim) who joins the swim team to get closer to a pretty girl. If that plot sounds uninteresting to you, then look elsewhere; Frogman is a fine example of it's type, but there is nothing here that's exceptional or even all that unpredictable. On the other hand, if that plot sounds like it might be fine... read on.

Oh, and note that this isn't really a sports manga: the swim team setting is just an excuse to have girls hanging out in swimsuits. They don't go to swim-meets, read more

In an attempt to read another Suzuka, I read frogman. If you like sports and romance this is probably a manga you should check out.

From the start the girl has quite a bit of interest in him the boy being quite dense thinks his love for her is one sided. Of course another girl shows up, a moody tsundere! Who hates everything about our read more

Frogman is about a boy joining swimming club because of a girl he likes, well it resembles Suzuka but I tell you this that is only where it resembles it. I would rate it lower if it weren't for the art and character of Haruka, the main heroine of this manga. Haruka is passionate in swimming, kind and so cute.

What I don't like in this manga is that the story is not even about Swimming as a sports and also Michiru (main male protagonist) is such a loser, damn. Unlike in other sports manga you will see the development and how far did the protagonist read more
