Damn, I am absolutely not good with these types of anime. First of all, I don’t even like fishing, so that, for me, is very uninteresting, but okay. I’m not sure how they’re going to do this, but who knows what they could do with a show about fishing.

I started out pretty negatively, but the artwork actually surprised me. It doesn’t look bad, not bad at all. I’m not sure why, but I had a sort of Nisemonogatari flashback when watching the first episode. You can clearly see that they are very excited about this piece, which is why I’ll give the second episode a try as well.

Unfortunately, the story doesn’t do it for me. It’s a show about fishing, a boy with communication problems, and about another boy that wants to pull him into the world of fishing. I never knew that fishing could improve one’s social abilities. I guess that the Japanese have a lot left to teach us about social protocol.

The story may seem interesting to some and the artwork to most, but I’m honestly not sure to whom I should recommend this. No one I know is even remotely interested in fish, but I suppose the real Sci-Fi die-hards may come to like this one. Who knows, they might just surprise us.

Plot Summary: Yuki Sanada is a high school boy who cannot communicate with people well and doesn’t have a single friend.

He lives on Enoshima island with his French grandmother. One day, he meets a boy named Haru. Haru calls himself an alien who visited the Earth for fishing.

Another high school boy, Natsuki, and a mysterious Indian, Akira, join the two and the island becomes the center of the event which determines the fate of the world.
