"A new life begins for Kitahara Iori as he begins his college career near the ocean in Izu city, full of excitement for his new life. He will be moving into his Uncle's diving store "Grand Blue." There he finds the beautiful ocean, beautiful women, and men that love diving and alcohol. Will Iori be able to live his dream college life?"
I'm surprised there wasn't a thread for this series. It is easily one of my favorite ongoings at the moment and I have been following it for a while. It is such a great mix of comedy, romance and slice of life with a bit of actual diving thrown in. I love series like this and it is one of the better ones I've read. Now that the scans have caught up to the magazine releases we sadly have to wait a month between chapters, but it is worth the wait.
As for the current chapters, I really like how they brought back the mean girl from earlier in the series and seeing how her and Iori are building a connection with each other without either of them even realizing it. It has felt very natural and they have great chemistry, especially when insulting each other. She fits in perfectly with the Scum Squad, lol.
I also like how it has pushed characters like Cakey into being more assertive with her own feelings about Iori. I did like how she went to Azusa for advice on the situation as I think both characters mirror each other in their respective age groups given how Azusa never got to make her feelings clear to Tokita before he found a girlfriend, and Cakey doesn't want to fall into that. Although you have to imagine that her asking him to go on a date will end badly. I'm guessing that this development it will probably force Chisa to realize what Iori means to her too, which should be entertaining.
