Synopsis

Taiyo Nakabiru went to Okinawa on a trip in pursuit of beautiful girls and his wish to go diving. When trying to hit upon a girl, she surprises him by saying that he killed her mother. It appears that she and her two sisters know him, even though he does not remember ever going to Okinawa before. After convincing the three sisters, Nagisa, Shibuki and Mio Miyara, to let him help them out with their work and to let him learn diving from them, Taiyo's childhood with the sisters slowly comes back to him, and certain strange events involving a mystical white whale begins to haunt them.

IO basically starts of as a distinctive Harem, Romantic, Comedy, but as you go on you’ll discover that there is more to this manga, once the Supernatural, Mystery element surfaces.

It follows the endeavours of your average city boy (Taiyo), who visits Okinawa, only to end up meeting 3 girls.

Gosh, it must have been while I was in college that I read this manga. Now several years later, with a bit of time to spare, I saw it pop up again in my browser history (yeah, yeah, I really need to clean it up one of these days) and couldn't stop myself from diving right into it (you see what I did there? *wink* *wink*).

I can tell you one thing: it was a mistake. A horrible mistake.

No, not because it was terrible. I fell in love with it once more (as far as that's possible with something on paper/your computer screen) and couldn't help read more

IO starts with the protagonist traveling to Okinawa on a school trip takes a detour after three girls who claims to be her sister. This manga is all in all a romance-mystery with addition of Comedy,Harem and supernatural.

If you want to see some outstanding art of underwater/ scenic beauty, I will recommend this as one of the best. The views drawn on first few chapters are enough to lure you to read this entire series. Also the characters are designed pretty well. There were few scenes where you might confuse between Taiyo and Shibuki (they have similar face and shoulder length hair at read more
