July 7th, 2009, 3:11pm the only word I need to summarise this manga so far. The pacing of the story is just perfect. Very likeable main characters. Haruka isn't the typical young professional level athelete that is so prevalent in sports manga. She is a good swimmer but it's her caring attitude towards Michuru which which sets her apart. Michurr may be a novice at swimming but he is by no means a weak character, he knows that he has a lot to accomplish and he greatly respects Haruka's ability and her kindness. The coach is a well rounded character and provides most of the humour.

Don't get me wrong, i've been following this manga since the start, but since i now know that it will end at the 6th volume, i can safely write a comment.
I had my hopes high for the very first chapters since it gave a bit of information about swimming. I was excited because i love swimming, for me it's one of the bests sports out there. Boy was i in the wrong. This manga could have been great, amazing, but it decided to go with the common route.
The oh so typical trio of 2 females and 1 male, ecchiness and the romantic plot. What a big disappointment. If this manga limited the ecchiness and focused more on swimming fundamentals i would have loved it.
The comedy is good for a while, but seriously, haven't we seen this kind of manga like a 100 times already? So filled with cliches it's like it's not even trying, it introduced the perv, it introduced the lolli, it introduced the random plot... what can i say? I won't even discuss the random and weird thing that has happened in the 44th chapter, it's just so out there crazy that i'm lost for words.
Why did it turn out this way?
The swimming is still there but it's like it doesn't even matter, only to show the girls and the teacher in swimsuits.
The only good thing about this manga is the nice, clean art, but art alone isn't worth much, especially in a 6 volume series, so no matter what goes on the the final volume (unless the mangaka goes on a completely new direction9) i know that this manga will not be above mediocre status.
And that is really a shame.

To tell the truth I was attracted by the cover so imagine how disspointed I was when I learned that the hot girl on the cover is the coach while the main girl is much more plain looking and boring.

You could say that her caring attitude is nice but it doenst really give her a personality feeling. she feels like a dull nice girl character that you see in 80% of shounen anyway.

The manga itself is alright but far from being above mediocre.

At least coach designs are awesome but she is not love interest and just a commical relief sadly.

Coulda, shoulda....woulda...
The starting had me hoping for a nice quirky romance. I didn't read up on it prior, i just went for it.
Well, long story short it is an axed manga with corresponding ending. Also it is not the nice quirky romance I hoped went down the harem way and stuck there for 90% of the story.
For those who want to save time here's the ending:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Last Chapter: They kiss, they confess, they time skip 6 years and then marry. Done within 1 chapter of 20 pages.

For people complaining that this isn't deep enough: there really isnt anything that you can expect. It is a sports and a harem, and it does it pretty well. I've been following this only since Feb but I think this is a pretty typical but readworthy shounen.

build up of the story quite good.. a bit of romance-comedy with a main theme of sport.. and I agree with andasideoffries that this manga differs in that it still keep the sport i.e. swimming as the main theme of the story.. hope a new scanlation group will continue the project.. a pity that blackwing stop all his works..

pretty much what tsukasachan said- I should note that its particularly clean despite the fact that the main character-a teenage boy-is wimming together with 2 girls (normaly you'd think there would be nosebleeds or lewd thoughts).
also, the gist of this manga seems to be mainly about swimming witha sprinkling of romantic comedy, as opposed to the other way around

This manga is very clean and keep going on the right direction. the Character are great and the main story help focus on them more and more biggrin The story will probably evolve to something great in the next volume. (4) Actually dropped by Black Wing i hope someone will take the project really soon and continue to scanlate it biggrin

Is an anime about sports, swimming to be specific, but it is superficial (there are only 3 swimming competitions throughout the manga). The manga has no depth, and the final "just happens" is disappointing because the art is very good.

If you want to read a good manga about sports and history that is worth worth, read Suzuka.

started out pretty normal for an ecchi harem manga, then held on pretty well with its cliche's but the ending was "dafuq" worthy, like the ending wasn't really the ending, can't really explain it properly though, anyways an alright read if you like ecchi, harem, sports and sexualized comedy
