Semms like it. Nagi no Asukara, Nadia, and Tsuritama fans will find redeeming qualities in this series. Plenty of good seiyuu too.

'Cool off this summer and dive into the waters of Grand Blue.' That should have been the catchphrase for this anime. Any objections?

Synopsis

Iori Kitahara makes his shocking debut at his university. He’s just started living by himself in a coastal town. There, he starts diving, meets beautiful women, and of course, loveable dudes as well!

Three Episode Impression

Grand Blue is about Iori who moves into his uncle’s seaside shop. But when he walks in, it’s a bunch of drunk guys naked. Apparently this is the diving club, but since he hates swimming and cannot, Iori wants nothing to do with them. This sucks because he basically is forced/tricked to join the club along with Kouhei, an otaku. This is their story about learning how to dive while drinking a lot.

This anime has a lot of dicks. No really, everyone seems to get naked all the time! There’s lots of cheap gags and people being caught up in different things. It’s okay, but a lot of the humor seems… puerile? One good thing to note about this anime is that this shows life in college fairly accurately. Students tend to drink heavily, party, and skip class while maybe going to club activities if they have joined due to the fact that high school was so strict for them and they are free to be themselves now. There is very little diving content until episode three and it seems like the series is going to rely on humor to prop up whatever story it is trying to tell until it gets there. We will not be keeping up with this one.
