Grand Blue Dreaming
Volume 1


Among the seaside town of Izu's ocean waves and rays of shining sun, Iori Kitahara is just beginning his freshman year at Izu University. As he moves into his uncle's scuba diving shop, Grand Blue, he eagerly anticipates his dream college life, filled with beautiful girls and good friends.

But things don't exactly go according to plan. Upon entering the shop, he encounters a group of rowdy, naked upperclassmen, who immediately coerce him into participating in their alcoholic activities. Though unwilling at first, Iori quickly gives in and becomes the heart and soul of the party. Unfortunately, this earns him the scorn of his cousin, Chisa Kotegawa, who walks in at precisely the wrong time. Undeterred, Iori still vows to realize his ideal college life, but will things go according to plan this time, or will his situation take yet another dive?

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Preliminary (84/? eps)
There are a total of four things that I absolutely love in pieces that I read when well done.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (84/? eps)
Has a lot of ups and downs.. It started out strong but thinned out the pacing too much, I would give the first 30 chapters an 8. The focus probably should have been tighter around the club where they could develop the upperclassmen more, given how those characters have been there since the beginning it feels odd not to have learned much about them. There were way too many chapters about "The boys" since it's the same joke every time. Given the frustrating pace I ended up skimming the last third pretty aggressively

That sums up what I thought about the manga but apparently there's a ...

Preliminary (32/? eps)
I'm dropping this after 30 chapters, I really don't know how it's in the top ten but then again mal is a cesspool of circlejerkers who can't be trusted to have opinions of their own. I will give it credit there were moments that genuinely make me laugh but I really expected that at this point something would have progressed, if not the plot then at least the characters and the comedy. But it seems as though Grand Blue will carry on with its same overplayed jokes and gags without doing anything new to keep me interested.

My main issue is that the premise has ...
