Maiko Uchino’s Slow Loop is an ongoing manga series, focusing on recreational fishing. In other words, it’s a sports anime, focusing on the competitive and entertainment elements of fishing. I mean, it does sound fun, right? While my description is hardly impressive, I suggest looking at the visuals and Slow Loop anime trailer. I’m sure you’ll get a better idea of how fantastically fun this anime will be, especially considering how well it’s animated. To each their own, but it’s an anime I’d suggest keeping an eye on!

The First Slow Loop Trailer!
Plot: “When Hiyori—a young girl whose deceased father taught her the joys of fishing—headed out to sea for some alone time, she never thought that she would encounter another girl there.
After a while, this girl—named Koharu—and her end up fishing and cooking together, and they get to know each other a bit in the meantime. During their brief time together Koharu finds out that the reason Hiyori went out to sea that day was because she’s hesitant towards meeting her new step family that same evening. But what a coincidence! Koharu is also meeting her new family tonight! “No. It can’t be a coincidence…” Follow these two ‘sisters’ and their new life together!”
