    The animation is the best!
    Wow, never noticed the colors at the bottoms of the characters eyes before. Story seems OK but the artwork is amazing! I love how the main character actually feels like someone charming and relatable. I am really looking forward to so many more episodes.

    This is a sports, slice of life anime about Harukana playing beach volleyball
    Harukana, who is a natural athlete and tall, goes to live with her cousin in Okinawa and immediately ends up on the beach playing beach volleyball. Her cousin, Kanata, used to play, but quit, apparently after the death of someone close, possibly a sister. Their first pick-up game is with the local high school champions, who they lose to 7-0, but she claims a revenge match in a week. So it ...

    I tried to like this
    it feels like it was written by a feminist who was on a high school volleyball team and was always getting shown up by the ace

    if you look at the background characters they are all female as well just an interesting tidbit

    good animation tho... :\

    Some nice elements but I can't take it seriously
    There's a lot to like about this show. I like the setting, the artwork and the character design. I can't fault the voice acting either and Haruka is a refreshingly likeable and energetic main character.

    As for dislikes, well an anime about girl's beach volleyball is always going to have a strong echi element to it but for me the level of fanservice is just way too high. There's also lots of ...

    Better Than Expected
    The first episode really surprised me. I was expecting boob jiggles everywhere. But this anime isn't about boob jiggles and skimpy swimwear, it is about volleyball. You can really feel the 'sportsman's heart' in this show and the story development and characters are amazing. The animation is also amazing. I can't get that one scene in the second episode where they serve the ball and the sand flies ...

    As a fan of actual beach volleyball this show doesn't disappoint
    Ever since watching Haikyu!!, I started loving volleyball and even started playing seriously. Beach volleyball in particular is really fun so I was very happy when I saw a series dedicated to the sport. So far the animation is fluid and looks nice, the music, opening and endings are great, and the characters are very enjoyable. Give it a watch!

    Excellent sports anime without the ecchi!
    Harukana Receive is a good wholesome anime that I recommend for anyone who has dealt with self-esteem issues or knows someone that is. Plus, it’s a good sport anime that shows how people can be connected through their love of beach volleyball. The series will also deal with social issues as Kanata is described as shy and quiet. Constant interaction with her peers will help her overcome her ...

    Beach Volleyball Drama
    The girls are cute, although generic, Haruka has the cutest bathing suit. It takes place on the beach, it's more of a sports anime than slice-of life since the focus is fully on the game and scenes away from the net serve the main story. So with good looking girls in skimpy bikinis hitting balls around in the sand, should be fun &sexy right? This anime takes itself way too seriously, with a ...

    The Special Beach Episode, but It's Actually the Whole Show
    All right, that may not be completely fair. But this show is a sports anime about qt girls in bikinis. That is the glaring, obvious core and it that's enough for you on it's own, you'll love this show. There's lots of bouncing, qt outfits, qt sounds, some strong lesbian baiting, and general fanservice.

    if not, there is more to this show than all that. It's actually quite a nice sports drama as ...

  • A sports anime with fan service, Yes! BUT with so much HEART!
    Frankly, if you're biased against fan service, you're going to hate this show. For the rest of you (with open minds), WATCH this wonderful sports anime! Not JUST for the fan service (yes, there's plenty of that), but the heart warming characters, the incredible special effects with sand (and water) plus the actual caring by the writers for not only the main characters, but their opponent's ...
