Houkago Teibou Nisshi Episode 1: Fishing Girls Club

At last we got the premiere of the cute girls going fishing show. Let’s see what they have in store for us.

Hina spooked

Hina spooked.

We kicked things off with our adorable heroine Hina Tsurugi. She enjoyed sewing. Her first year of high school was coming up. Her family (or only Mom and her) moved (back as we would later find out) to a seaside town. She went out for a bit. As she was enjoying the view she was greeted by an unwelcome guest. Doing her best to collect herself she noticed another girl by the pier.

Hina and Yuuki

Hina and Yuuki.

She rushed over to help the girl who looked like she was in big trouble. Actually she’s looking for a good spot to fish. Her name was Yuuki Kuroiwa. Hina helped untie her fishing line. As a reward she let Hina try out fishing. It took a while but eventually she got a bite. She pulled as hard as she could and…


Hina’s first catch.

Hina disliked creepy things like bugs and now octopi. She pleaded with Yuuki to get it off.

Yuuki bribing Hina

Yuuki bribing Hina.

She was about to but suddenly had another idea. “I’ll get rid of it you…if you join my club”. When she regained consciousness she was at the Breakwater Clubhouse, a fishing club whose motto was “If you catch it, you eat it”. Upon recovering Hina decided to “take another nap” if you catch my drift.

Hina worried about Yuuki

Hina not sure if she had the guts to leave the Breakwater Club.

During the first day of school Hina wondered if she had the courage to resign from the Breakwater Club in favor of a sewing club. She headed to the clubhouse and while relieving her stress noticed another girl fishing.

Kid and teen Natsumi

Kid and Teen Natsumi.

It took a moment before Hina remembered Natsumi. She didn’t recognize her because she was much tanner as a kid. That’s a Summer thing for her. Fingers crossed for a beach episode. Hina’s always been afraid of creepy crawlies. She didn’t want to go fishing with Natsumi which is why she’s surprised to see her at the clubhouse.

MakotoMakoto's guns

Next up Hina met Makoto. She’s gloriously big but doesn’t talk much. Again, swimsuit episode please. In the ED Yuuki is shown having an impressive figure also. Speaking of she showed up next. After the roll call Hina tried to politely resign. Yuuki told her to go fishing with the club for the day and see what she thought then.

Not going over the segment. It was fun watching cute girls fish. This is exactly what I was hoping that space fishing anime would be like. This is going to be a super fun and chill show.

Hina and Natsumi

I don’t ship Hina X Natsumi super hard yet but there’s tons of show to go so hopefully they’ll grow closer.

    Natsuki and Hina are so cute and wholesome but my eyes are fixated on Yuuki and Makoto, not only their glorious figures but also some minor details between them.

    Yuuki is glad that both Natsuki and Hina decided to join the club, so that means her and Makoto were the only ones in that group before, makes me wonder.
    The ED intentionally divided the girls into pairs instead of individuals and Makoto can be seen grabbing onto Yuuki’s arm in some shots.
    The ED also shows some close moments between two of them as well.

    If all the pieces fall into their places, I think we MIGHT have a Hot Couple 2.0 in the spring season and I’m absolute all for it. Brothers and sisters, pray with me.

    And YES, we demand a swimsuit episode.

    Great first ep! Was everything I wanted and then some, so good.

    Hina is cute and fun, nice to see her warm up to fishing by the end of the ep.

    Natsumi, the classic childhood friend. Just like you mentioned, hope to see a swimsuit ep and some glorious tanlines.

    Yuuki is great, she got me laughing a lot.

    Makoto though… wow. Need that swimsuit ep more than ever now. She’s caught my attention so far, but as with most girls club shows, all the girls are really cute and likeable.

    Chill fishing action is what I wanted going into this show and it’s exactly what ep 1 delivered on. Got a great feeling about this show I can’t wait for more next Tuesday!

    Saludos Sr. OG
    Han pasado 84 años.jpg. Hay que darle seguimiento a la serie, pero no puedo evitar que venga a mi mente el último evento de Shoujo Kageki… Saijou Claudine la pescadora, junto con sus discípulas Shiori-chan y Fumi-san.

    Nos escribiremos más seguido… espero

    I Really enjoyed it! Didn’t think I’d be laughing so much XD This, Kakushigoto, and one other show are definitely the standout comedies this season.
    Am curious if this will get the inevitable end of season newbie, or if it’ll actually stick to these 4 (plus the obvious advisor that was in the OP/ED). That would make for a stronger show overall really, as more focus could just be spent on developing the characters. Even if not, dozens of shows before it have used the eosn formula and been fine, so I’m not worried.

    This was just adorable! Looking forward to more!

    Also in the ED is that a standard sexy teacher/adviser for the club? So looking forward to her introduction!

    Oh no, senpai will have me giggling all season.

    Hina and Natsumi aren’t there yet, but they’re off to a good start for episode 1.

    This show is off to an excellent start. If only they were working adults… and randomly in space for some reason.

    So far nothing beats “I killed you with my butt.” Here’s hoping the contents live up to the OP.

    Great first episode.
    I love all the characters and especially Hina felting while nervous.
    As other have pointed out I also see that there could be something between Yuuki and Makoto but it’s too early to tell.
    Looking forward to more.

  8. Ah man, Yuuki is one nasty senpai lol
    That’s one guaranteed way of getting someone to sign up!

    This is gonna be one chill show, I love the fishing scenes (Even though I’ve never fished before)

    Yukki really knows how to get Hina to join. I am quite surprised that she just didn’t ignore her and join the handicraft club behind her back. I guess she would find out rather quickly.

    Still, it’s nice to see Hina reunite with her childhood friend from several years ago.
