  • Fishing with Friends
    This show combines the relaxed bonding with friends that happens when they fish together and a mission to save the world. Like fishing the pace is slow and relaxed. The tone mostly light-hearted with an occasional serious moment. The mission to save the world adds bizarre elements (aliens, a monster, and secret organizations) to the basic story. The mismatched plotlines (bonding while fishing and ...

    My all-time favorite!
    I found Tusitama by chance a couple of months ago by going through a blog full of random screencaps.
    I saw one with Haru and thought "Oh, this looks like it will be cute!"

    And wow am I super glad I did take the time to watch it!
    It's just so sweet and calming at times. Yuki is super easy to relate to and his friends are ones I would hope to have. (emotions, twists and all!) The story in ...

    Don't even bother reading this. Just watch it.
    This is one of those animes you just need to watch. Reading the descriptions, reading the reviews - that's not going to give you a good idea of just how awesome this anime truly is.

    I never knew that a story including fishing, aliens, friendship, and a duck named Tapioca could grip me like this anime did. It made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me bite my fingernails because OMG WHAT IS ...

  • A new favorite show!
    You think going in that it's just a show about fishing, but there are a lot of other surprises in store when you get halfway through it. While it is goofy and light-hearted, there is some serious drama too it. I implore you to watch this great show!!

    A Gem Lost At Sea!!!
    I couldn't believe people when they said that this was an amazing series. Just from quickly looking at it, I thought that it could never earn more than four stars. Guys, this just reafirms the proverb to not judge a book by its cover. The characters are great, the plot is superb, the animation and music are wonderful, and the flow of the series is flawless. It doesn't seem sporatic. It just keeps ...

    Fun Fishing With Friends
    Quirky yet satisfying plot results. (Gotta watch through the credits on the last episode though to see the last part!) Definitely a unique anime with unique characters that connect strangely well. It seems impossible to not fall in love with the alien Haru. Learn stuff alone the way too, but it never goes into lecture mode. It might be a little slower paced than what most people are gunning for, ...

  • Not bad actually....
    Very informative and educational - about fishing and friendship. The storyline was unique and each character has a strength of their own rendering them significant to the whole anime. It was a story of how Yuki finally found where he belonged and what he really wants to do. Haru's playfulness but thirst to know more about humans and what makes them tick was so refreshing. I loved grandma so much ...

    I would recommend this!
    I put off watching this for a long time because..an anime about fishing? Really? but after watching a few episodes I regretted not starting it sooner. The animation style is really nice as well as the soundtrack. The show is a good length - it's maybe a bit slow to really get started but not so slow I lost interest before things picked up a bit. I cared about what happened to the characters and ...

    There is a fishing anime!
    Seriously, this show was fun. The whole concept of Haru being an alien was great. The opening theme was also really great too. Yuki's face when he is flustered is enough just to watch this show! It really is fun, especially with the water gun and the duck. This show will not disappoint.

  • Great animation, great characters, music, story, art and a happy feeling
    Tsuritama is not like your average anime. From the first episode, you can tell something's different. The first thing I would like to mention is that the animation is superb and different looking. Though while it's not hyper realistic or super detailed, it is still very pretty and you could spend an entire episode just looking at it. There's also the music. Whilst most anime use catchy J-pop ...
