Hina Tsurugi is a first-year student who moves to a town by the sea. While Tsurugi is more of an “indoor kid” who enjoys things like arts and crafts, she is suddenly thrown into the world of fishing when an older student, Yuuki Kuroiwa, invites her to be a part of the school’s fishing club.
Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater. This was a really cute show. It's about a first-year student named Hina Tsurugi who moves one day and arrives to a town near the ocean. Now, Hina is a more in-doors girl and was wanting to join the arts and crafts club at her school, but one thing led to another and she finds herself in a fishing club. Animation-wise, it's average. As a Doga Kobo production, they do their best with their animation and it fits the setting well. Characters...there's Hina who I already mentioned as loving arts and crafts and is a more timid girl who gets easily scared or perplexed. But she is slowly beginning to love fishing. Natsumi Hodaka was a childhood friend of Hina's who's your typical energetic, hyperactive girl. Makoto Ohno is the tall, bespectacled girl who is knowledgeable on fishing but when explaining it, she leaves others at a loss for words. Lastly is Yuuki Kuroiwa, probably my favorite of the group. She's the laid-back club president who oftentimes is kind of lazy such as when she claimed that cleaning up the fishing lines was a club tradition. She can often give some advice to the other girls on how to do things like bait the fishing rods, which is often met with shock during times she's actually helpful. Voice work is also good. I also like the tips the show gives when it came to fishing like where to find different fish species during a certain time of day and habitat. As well as how to bait fishing hooks and what types are needed for certain species. As someone who likes fishing, very informative.
The series focuses on Hina and her friends. Hina dislikes leaving home, but one day, she meets upperclassman Kuroiwa and joins the mysterious ‘Embankment Club’. She now fishes with her fellow club members and together they eat their catches. The problem, however, is that Hina has a phobia of sea creatures.Cute girls do cute things. It seems that this genre is a source of never-ending ideas and that there will not be a year with no ‘cute girls do cute things’ anime series. The anime has neither a plot to brag about, nor the characters to be unique enough for me to say that it is a masterpiece that you will only find once in a while. It is just that relaxing slice of life, with some random comedy. However, there is one thing to highly appreciate and this is the fact that this anime series tries to show the viewer the joy of fishing, explaining many important details to keep in mind about this activity and Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater does it quite well.Character wise, it is another reason to appreciate this series, at least for me. Hina Tsurugi has a phobia of sea creatures; all these sea monstrosities, I quite understand the reason for Hina to be afraid of these things. And this is what Diary of Our Days at the Breakwater is about; a heartwarming slice of life about one girl, who has to fight her phobia and enjoy club activities together with her friends. After all, it is our friends, who help us change ourselves, as well as they are the reason for us acting reckless. However, this is what makes our lives better and brighter.All in all, watching this show little by little works wonders and is quite enjoyable, I must say. A must watch for hardcore slice of life/cute girls do cute things fans.
