A fun anime series about girls playing beach volleyball
28 September 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

Haruka Ozora moves to live with her cousin Kanata Higa, and their grandmother, on Okinawa; here she discovers the sport of beach volleyball. Kanata had stopped playing some time before but starts playing again with Haruka. As the series progresses their skills improve and they ultimately end up in a competition to see if they can represent Okinawa in the National Championships... they will be up against some tough competition though.

One might be forgiven for thinking a series about beach volleyball would be pure fan service but surprisingly it isn't. Even though every episode features high school girls in bikinis almost the entire time it doesn't feel gratuitous as it takes the sport seriously. I don't know anything about the sport but it does look as if the creators studied it so the matches feel real. They are animated in a way that keeps things exciting; even in matches where we can guess the outcome it doesn't feel obvious while watching. The characters are likeable; there are rivalries but no real grudge matches. Overall I'd say this was a fun sports anime.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
