Fune wo Amu truly is a breath of fresh air. I can honestly say that I have not watched an anime like it. I really like anime that are about what people are passionate about. You really grow to love the characters.

The basic premise is about a guy who isn't really good at dealing with people and to make things worse, he's a salesman. But, he is very interested in words and books. Fate plays it's hand when the dictionary editing department needs a new hire to replace someone who will retire. (There's also a dash of romance too.)

At first I thought that I would grow board of this anime pretty quickly because I wasn't sure how they would keep me engaged in a story about creating a dictionary. But man was I wrong.

Who knew I would become so invested in a dictionary.
