  • TFP's Anime List Project #28: The One With the Swimsuits

    Widgets Magazine
    Welcome to the 28th edition of The Fandom Post Anime List Project. Where TFP readers can suggest and vote on lists for a wide array of anime-related topics, sometimes relating to the current anime season.

    The poll for the last topic, Favorite Episodic Workers, is above. Please select up to but no more than five (5) options! Voting on this poll is open through afternoon Sunday, July 3rd.

    And the winners of the last poll, Best Karaoke Scenes:

    4.) Amagi Brilliant Park, ep. 9
    4.) Azumanga Daioh, ep, 17
    4.) Cardcaptor Sakura, ep. 37
    3.) Hidamari Sketch, s1, ep. 4
    2.) YuruYuri, s2, ep. 8
    1.) Lucky Star, ED, ep. 5 ("Cha-la Head-cha-la")

    And next: The Beach. Favorite beach-themed episodes, obviously. To kick off Summer stuff. By the way, for the purposes of this topic, "beach" refers to any recreational shoreline beside any body or course of water, including artificial ones, but not regular swimming pools. So think outside the bikini-box.

    Please reply to this root post with up to five (5) nominations. Nominations are open through Saturday, July 2nd. (That's one week! ... Though reserving the right to push it back if need be. I'm anticipating a lot of picks for this and may want to run more than one poll.)

    (If you have a topic suggestion, please feel free to post that here, as well.)

    Thanks!

    Maya Matsumoto for this week's poll.

    For water-side fun, I nominate the episode in Acchi-Kocchi (Place to Place) ep 7 where they go to the mountains: Tsumiki casts her line and catches a large Mayoi then gets Io's head on her lap and finally some barbecue.

        Re: TFP's Anime List Project #28: The One With the Swimsuits

        I'd like to nominate these two:

        You're Under Arrest! Special (Counted as episode 52 of Season 1), "Diverting Traffic at the Beach": Miyuki, Natsumi, Aoi & Yoriko are tasked to help a beachside town's police department work traffic control as folks go to & from the beach. After doing a rescue on the water & the arrest of a thief by Miyuki & Natsumi, by the end of the day all 4 of our favorite cops end up doing traffic control in their bathing suits (Much to the dismay of the Chief & Ken Nakajima watching on live TV back at Bokuto Precinct ).

        Hyperdimension Neptunia TV, "The Paradise (Island) Forbidden...on which people will DO THINGS to other people and forget wardrobe malfunction because there might even be tonguing and it'll be like "Oh no, Neptune is so embarrassed~~"! The title kinda says it all, doesn't it? Actually, the CPUs & Nepgear investigate the island called R-18 and yes, fun on the beach is involved.

          This is really going to take a lot of time to narrow down to standouts. There's one thing that's pretty much a certain nomination from me for a variety of reasons, though, so I'll nominate it right away:

          Magic User's Club OVA, ep. 4 "The Sea, the Cave, and the Magic Party"

            Oooh, Beach Episodes??

            Hayate the Combat Butler!! OVA - Atsu ga natsui ze Mizugi-han
            Ah, the most-forgotten episode of Hayate, and also the one with all of the swimsuits. Can't hate an episode of Hayate with a cursed swimsuit. Is also the first appearance of a few characters who appeared later in S2.

            Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu Episode 3 - Summer Illusion of Steel
            Hijinx at the beach with Kaname & Sousuke, and a kidnapping that wasn't really a kidnapping?

            Aria the Animation Episode 5 - To That Island Which Shouldn't Exist...
            In an entire show about messing around on the water, it should come as no surprise that there's an episode where they mess around on the beach. In a truly wonderful way that would easily get a "No sappy lines allowed" remark from Aika.

            Angelic Layer Episoide 21 -Summertime at the Sea! Someone is in Love With Someone!
            It surprised me just how far into Angelic Layer this episode falls, but I remember it being a wonderful episode where much fun is had, but so much is revealed. It's a turning point and a perfect setup for the final few episodes run-in.

            The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Episodes 6 & 8 - Remote Island Syndrome
            I've gone with original broadcast order above, but regardless of having confusing numbers, and being a two-parter, the Remote Island Syndrome storyline of Haruhi was wonderful, not only for the on-beach fun, but also for the development of the Kyon/Haruhi relationship. It's one of the first real signs we get of Haruhi thinking about the consequences of what she wishes for. That, and the swimsuits are to die for!

            (If only a single ep of haruhi is allowed, then Part 1 of Remote Island Syndrome!)

              I'll second this one automatically.

              Have to think about further nominations to make.

                Oh man, I watched this episode not too long ago (I'm on the TV series now) & it slipped my mind when I posted my noms.
                Seconded.

                  This gets a second from me as well. BTW, IIRC this is the episode where our favorite undines meet Grandma (The founder of Aria Company), right?

                    Nah, that was ep9. This one was the one where Akari gets an invitation to Neverland, and she finds both Aika and Alice there, to do training in a beautiful bay, before having fun swimming etc

                      I'll have to think about this a bit. One episode I will nominate is this:

                      Card Captor Sakura ep. 17 - Sakura's Scary Test of Courage

                      Disappearing students made for quite an adventure at the beach, and a great one at that.

                          A topic suggestion in relation to the season/upcoming date. How about tanabata? (Wikipedia has an English article about tanabata.)
                          I'm not sure whether anime have many tanabata-related scenes/episodes to the level where they can form a List, however.
                          (Methinks Haruhi had a tanabata-related episode, if I remember correctly, though.)

                              I might second these late, but I'm going to have to dig deep myself on this one, find the missing gems.
