The Spring anime barrage is over. Summer 2018 has a manageable 9-10 shows worth watching. And believe it or not, there are sleepers among this bunch. In fact, these three “Sleeper Anime” are my favorite shows this season. But to those who think I’m about to list Cells at Work and Asobi Asobase, you’ll want to keep reading.
Grand Blue Dreaming (Amazon)
Yes, Asobi Asobase is funny, but Grand Blue Dreaming is hilarious.
Grand Blue Dreaming follows Iori Kitahara as he enters into college in a new town. Upon entering his uncle’s house/diving shack, Kitahara is immediately recruited into the university’s diving club.
Shockingly, this anime has very little to do with diving. This is a pure comedy anime centering around binge drinking, comedic male nudity, and my personal favorite, friends screwing over friends because it’s funny.
Do yourself a favor and hand Amazon your money. At least you’ll get to watch this next one, too.
