Tsuritama Episode 2

Back with more fishing. Introducing a few more characters this week. On the minor front, we have Natsuki’s little sister Sakura, who I assume will be used against him later. Also, Haru’s little sister…quite a bit more pushy than Haru, but with the same mind control water gun. Then finally, Akira Agarkar Yamada, the fourth member of the group. Yuki also manages to get over his shyness enough to talk to Natsuki and ask for his helping learning how to fish. I’m glad…that face Yuki makes when he’s nervous bugs me…

It was an interesting moment for me. We’ve been in Yuki’s head the whole time that I didn’t even realize that he has never spoken to Natsuki. I never considered how Natsuki must view him until he pointed it out. Anyway, we also get to see the mind control gun in action…as Haru uses it on Natsuki while Yuki watches. Yuki also gets Haru to stop using his gun…oh well, Haru’s gonna have to convince him the old fashioned way from now on. Next week, I’m guessing it’s a closer look at our new character Akira as he join in. Is he some sorta MIB-type character? Haru seems frightened of him. Should be interesting. This show is still pretty goofy. But I wonder why Yuki’s so special…Natsuki’s the Fishing Prince, after all.

Tsuritama Episode 1

Wow…a totally carefree episode. Let’s back up. We start off with our main character Sanada Yuki(mura?), a rather panicky guy who has trouble making friends. He transfers to Enoshima, where he meets Haru, a carefree, self-proclaimed alien who loves fishing. Also, throw in Usami Natsuki, the cool and serious guy in the class who is a fishing prodigy of some sort. There’s also supposed to be a fourth member, but I think we only get a glimpse of him in this first episode. Everything in the show is, like I said before, just carefree, mostly mediated through Haru and his water gun of mind control. He just does whatever he feels like and drags everyone into it.

Then again, I wonder how long this will last. They mentioned saving the world in the episode, so I imagine things may get a bit more serious pretty soon. Still, I think it should still be alright. I never expected a show about fishing to be quite so…quirky. As for the music, the song that I assume is the opening theme was pretty good. The tune is catchy and the vocals are alright. The ending theme was a pretty good song too…a light song I might actually listen to. Definitely should be an interesting show to watch…even if Yuki’s panicked drowning parts annoy me a little. Also, what’s up with the goose?
