Quite a sweet and pretty SoL about a girl coming out of her shell and learning to enjoy diving. It has a similar feel to Aria (and is by the same author) so if you liked that you will probably like this too.

There were a few things that stopped me from enjoying it more than I otherwise would have. One was the older sister, who I didn't like very much as I found the "gag" about her beating up her brother all the time to be unpleasant, not charming or funny. There were also a few episodes that felt pretty throwaway and pointless, even for a SoL show.

But I did really enjoy the other aspects. Pikaria and Futaba were adorable together (and of course there were some definite Yuri undertones there) and the teacher was pretty fun too. I found the OP in particular to be very relaxing and mesmerizing.

Overall, not a perfect show, but still very enjoyable if you're into your SoL. Obviously if you're not, this one probably won't change your mind on the matter.
