"On the surface, Tsuritama is an anime about fishing. But if you dive a little deeper you’ll see that what lies beneath is so much more. Tsuritama is a special kind of anime series, one that doesn’t come by all too often. With Kenji Nakamura, whose resume is becoming more and more impressive with each work, directing the series, you can expect something unique and that is what you get with Tsuritama. It is a rare kind of fish in the anime ocean and one that will pull you in hook, line and sinker."
