Tsuritama, Nagi no Asu kara Recommendations
Both these anime are about the sea and friendship. for the sake of preventing spoilers, lets say something big happens in both anime that are related to the sea. additionally both are drama based.
Friendship and water plays a very big role in this anime.
The only main difference is that Nagi no Asukara is a romance, while Tsuritama just focuses on friendship mainly.
This recommendation is mainly for the setting and atmosphere, as both take place around the ocean. They are heavily involved in the balance humanity shares with the ocean, and their stories are both drama/slice of life with lots of supernatural elements. The art is also fantastic in both, though for different reasons. Tsuritama has got more style to it, but Nagi no Asukara is just very beautiful to look at. If you like ocean vibes and good art, both of these are stellar.
A bright, ocean-themed show which follows a group of close friends who are drawn to the same interests. However, due to their different personalities, conflicts often appear. Transitions into a serious, exciting story halfway through where only the friends are capable of saving the town from a mysterious being living in the sea they so love. Throughout the show, adults and parents are major supporting characters.
