Official website:

The story's keyword is "SF" (seishun fishing). And it's got aliens, apparently. :P

From what I saw, it's going to be a generic boys' slice-of-life but the only unique thing about this one is the word "ecology".

Misdreavius 2012-02-02 12:01

Oh wow, back when the project was announced, I entered Tsuritama into google translate and got "fishing egg", turns out, it IS about fishing O.o

And might I just say, that art style reminds me of Cencoroll. Hell, the uniform looks exactly the same.

Pink hair girl is meganekko *.*

Whoa, another series about high school boys? That should about fill the quota for the next decade.

Miyu-miyu and Sugita reunited, plus Uchiyama Kouki and as far as I can tell, a first timer. Looks interesting.

Kakkou 2012-02-02 16:35

Nakmura Kenji & Uki Atsuya? MFW, I'm so on board.

Fevvers 2012-02-03 09:31

Damn! Seeing those characters makes me sad for lack of moar cencoroll!

But Nakamura Kenji is still fine, of course. Gonna be hard to beat Mononoke though.

MeoTwister5 2012-02-03 09:51

Like Enzo says, Miyu Irino and Sugita. Heh, let's see where this goes shall we.

Seems they are finding out they can actually make money from this type of show and they decided they might have one story about pretty boys for every 100 about pretty girls now.

Just saw the trailer on the main site, looks rather unique, in an "Arakawa Under The Bridge" sort of way.

The music in that preview certainly gives me the impression that it's a boy version of AzuDai (>.>)...

Katapan 2012-02-09 11:17

The key visual on the official website has already been changed:

I am definitely wondering whether they have a second character designer just for the fish! :D

For some reason I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around the concept - not against it per se. Not having difficulty in "theory", mind you - it just seems an odd combination of components to me.

Well - I guess I will give it a look at least. :)

Come to think of it, I'm not aware of any "slice of life" series that prominently feature males. I think this will be interesting.

Hmm ... now that you mention it I can't think of any off the top of my head either.

How about Kimi to Boku? Or Danshi Koukousei? Now if you want to go back a few years, it wasn't such an uncommon thing at all. It's only because those shows are so rare now that ones like this stand out so much.

Flower 2012-02-20 14:07

Hmm ... did not watch Kimi to Boku, so can't say much about it. Danshi Koukousei doesn't really strike me too much as "slice of life" as much as "comedy" per se, but that is just my own opinion I guess.

Admittedly the comment/thought was "off the top of my head", but still, since I am drawing a blank here maybe you could list a few that occur to you as representative of slice of life with male characters as the leads ... in the same manner as this show seems might portray.

If any help I am kinda thinking of shows like Aria, iDOLM@STER, Tamayura Hitotose, Sketchbook Full colorS and K-On reference wise for "slice of life" (to use some "recent" examples that are almost entirely female cast). Maybe the problem is my premise?

MisaoFan 2012-02-20 14:10

It is also mentionned that Miyu Irino appears in every single male-centered slice of life shows (except Rainbow).

Guardian Enzo 2012-02-20 19:42

LOL, are we calling Rainbow slice-of-life? I'll give you the "slice" part...
