    Grand Blue

    Japanese:ぐらんぶる

    Synopsis

    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?

    After seeing Episode 1, this is shaping up to be anime of the season for sure, and might even push Saiki(!) for my anime of the year

    If you like drinking shenanigans, awkward humour and manservice, I think you'll enjoy this

    Also, the manga's ranked 7th on MAL based on average rating (8.99), one spot behind One Piece (9.03)

    Looking at the title and the picture I was thinking this to a ripoff of One Piece.

    The name itself made me think it was a Granblue Fantasy ripoff. :P

    Episode 1:
    i did know the content but this was hilarious. ow the days that i first joined a student association.
    Drinking with friends is best drinking.
    Now let's go to the real thing of the anime: diving

    animation isn't that great tho, the stills and the faces are good but movement seems sometimes like a powerpoint presentation

    Episode 2
    good good, diving kicks in.

    I will continue to watch , it seems fun.

    ps: after watching episode 4 i couldn't hold it anymore.
    i laughed out loud at my computer.

    > Cakey without the cake is a cutie
    > Cakey’s cakey friends are cool, hopefully we’ll see them again
    > Iori’s friends are... unique? I’m sure we’ll see them again for more lols
    > James Thomas
    > It’s weird how quickly Iori and Kohei assimilated to the naked drinking, and it’s funny how the things they once questioned, they now accept as being normal
    > Chisa really likes diving, very cute
    > IORI WHY ARE YOU LOOKING AT HER ASS SHE’S YOUR COUSIN

    I'm glad you're finally enjoying it, Hotaro

    Grand Blue: A better tennis anime than Prince of Tennis?

    This show is continuing to knock it out of the park, and the upcoming trip seems like a good way for more shenanigans to take place. Oh, and diving. It's a diving anime. How could I forget.

    forgot i didn't watch 7 and watched 8 first. No biggie but 8 was fucking fantastic.
    7 was also good, the band of virgins is amazing. Holy molly that tennis match tho.

    Luckily it's an anime about diving.

    Just watched 8 and 9* and oh man Iori and his guy friends truly bring out the worst in each other

    Both previews for episode 10 were dank, it’s a real testament to the quality of the show when the real PV is funnier than the joke one

    Anyway, it’s OKINAWA TIME and I am EXCITED

    Episode 10 was a hoot, lots of nice diving and Iori (sort of) lives every man of culture’s dream

    As for Episode 11, I’m very surprised Azusa, umm... wanted to do that. Especially with Iori. I think he was right to refuse, though.
    Also how drunk did the two of them get that she actually managed to put the salad onion in his ass?

    Well, I watched the finale and then caught up with the manga straight away... Definitely anime of the year for me.

    The end credits with all of Chisa’s photos were super cute, it highlighted the balance the series struck between having characters who are genuinely good friends and characters that relentlessly shit on each other - I actually care about this main cast more than I do for any other comedy anime.

    10/10 must watch
