Shintaro and his school of salmon have been living in a small lake for generations. Tired of being muscled out of food by the bigger fish, they decide to make a bold move and head for the “ocean” that they’ve heard about in stories where it is vastly large and food is beyond plentiful.

A burning cold-blooded shounen adventure. Takes all the usual tropes and puts them in a nature story about salmon. The art makes for great jokes, where the fish alternate between cartoonish-anthropomorphised and realistic depictions of fish. When you see it you'll know what I mean.

Story feels a little dry, characters don't have much depth (maybe those are related). It's good though. Has kind of a Gurren Lagann spirit.
