Definitely need to watch the last episode again, it was such a blast from start to finish.
I really liked the previous episode also. It was interesting to see those tips for diving. Wish more episodes were like that.


I agree that they're good tips for diving, but if that was all of what Grand Blue was about it wouldn't be Grand Blue.

There are other shows about diving out there. What makes Grand Blue special is the secret sauce of 1 part diving to 1 part misunderstandings and 2 parts alcohol-fueled shenanigans.

Holy hell though Iori. if Azusa propositioned ME like that I'd be in her pants faster than you can say one night stand.

Episode 12 (Finale)

And so, it ends with a diving trip on the boat and having a great time on the seas, followed by the ultimate drinking party. They are chugging down booze like crazy, and having a great time being rowdy once again. And then Aina has some of that Otori booze and even with it diluted she's still creating havoc in her drunken state. And then it's back to college as everybody had a great time in Okinawa. That was great to see Aina in her drunken state there, all while the boys just continue to be boys.

Final Thoughts

This show was a lot of fun to watch for the quirky characters, the great comedy, and the scuba diving stuff as there was never a dull moment in this show. While the partying and the rowdiness were the focal point of this show more so than scuba diving, there was quite an imbalance of that, and I felt that it was overplaying that card so much with the boys frequently stripping down and this show doesn't really get serious about scuba diving until the second half. In any case, it was quite a nice show to watch, and I while I was disappointed with the lack of scuba diving in favor of drinking and other stuff, this show really brought its A-game with the comedy.

Grade: B+ (high 8/10)

One of my favorite series for Summer.

Over the top humor with adult jokes and exploring the college life in a crazy way. Well, not too surprising at how the characters really behave like the drinking and partying. I'm hoping the show gets more episodes in the future by adapting some of the side chapters. One of the previous episodes did that already.

Azusa is my favorite girl from this series, but damn Chisa ain't so bad either.



I really loved Grand Blue. This season I hit an anime slump, didn't care too much of what was airing, but I always or tried to watch this once the new episode came out. Personally it's my AOTS. Had a lot of fun, loved pretty much every character and their interactions. Friends are fucking awesome. Felt nice man.



Grand Blue Dreaming, if you ever get a second season I surely am going to watch.

Damn, I've had way too much fun with this series. There's not a lot of shows that deals with characters in college (though there's no schoolwork involved here, lol). Moreso, the kind of humor that they've brought to the table.


I sure wouldn't mind if they make another season.

I have learned so much about diving thanks to this anime. I am sure going to miss it, wish there was a season 2 (;. God i love Chisa, she looked so adorable trying to comfort Iori. The diving club creating the jungle juice and Kohei and Iori trying to add water was hilarious.9/10 and I need a season 2

This picture sums up 12 episodes of Grand blue.

Had a blast with this show from start to finish, some episodes I watched twice and I'll watch the whole series again later for sure. The pictures at the end sum up the show perfectly - the difference between the calmness of the diving sessions and the madness of the drinking parties.
All in all best show of the summer for me!

I'm glad that the anime stayed true to the manga in its finest form, and the Okinawa trip is a perfect cap to end the season on, they paced this well.

However, there are even more shenanigans up ahead in the manga. We have yet to meet some interesting characters from the manga, including but not limited to:



Short version? Grand Blue season 2 or RIOT.

I wish we got some more character development for Chisa and her obvious interest in Iori.


Just all around we needed more Chisa

^^So very much this. It feels like it cut off right as the relationships were starting to get good.

Was a good show and I'll miss my weekly dose of it. Honestly liked ALL the characters - how often can you say that about a show?
