The captain is such a bro. I hope he lands his ‘catch’ ;).
I can’t say objectively tsuritama is the better show this noitaminA, but subjectively it’s building up a surprisingly great rapport with viewer towards the characters, even if I tend to phase out (i.e. read twitter) every time any one of them gets to a long infodump about fishing techniques and equipment comparisons.
Also I now know how expensive fishing can be. It’s not just getting some string and a stick eh….
