When it comes to the Summer, there’s everything from outdoor concerts and festivals, to anime and comic book conventions for us geeks and nerds. One thing that will always remain true when it comes to the world of anime, is the legendary “Beach Episode” found in every rom-com, slice-of-life, and harem title that’s ever been created! From swimsuit tops ‘accidentally’ falling off to battling ghastly creatures while trying to have fun in the sun, these five hand-picked episodes from us will get you ready for an epic Summer!
Number 5: Shuffle – Season 1 Episode 9: Survival Swimming at the Beach
If there anyone that knows how to kick off the first weekend of Summer, it has to be the cast of Shuffle! Rin and the girls head to the beach for some fun, but after some silly antics (thanks to Asa) Rin and Sia end up stranded offshore. What happens next you ask? you’ll have to watch the episode to find out!
Number 4: Bleach – Episode 228: Summer! Sea! Swimsuit Festival!!
Even though this is a lengthy series, Bleach does take a break from fighting Hallows and other nasties to have some fun in the sun – well sort of. Despite all of the fun they’re having, Ichigo and Co. discover that there’s a Hallow that’s been haunting the beach. Get ready for swimsuits, Soul Reapers, and Ichigo’s rant about how much he hates the heat.
Number 3: School of Rumble – Episode 12: Save Me at the Beach! Save Me, I’m Naked! Just Save Me For Real!
This beach episode has everything you’d expect; swimsuits, perverted spies, and one character practicing katas while in the buff. If this episode doesn’t get you hyped up for the Summer, nothing will!
Number 2: TTGL – Episode 12: Yoko, will you do me a Favor?
Stuck at the beach until your boat, ship, or yacht is finished fueling up? That was the case with Team Dai-Gurren; as they had to wait until modifications were done on the Dai-Gurren before completing their mission. While this happened they enjoyed a little fun in the sun – at Yoko’s expense of getting showed up in every competition by Nia.
Number 1: PASWG: Season 1 Episode 9A: If The Angels Wore Swimsuits
If there’s anyone who knows how to turn up for the Summer, it would be the fallen angels of Daten City! This giant ball of raunchiness and adult humor that is Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, has volleyball grudge matches, ghost fights, A South Park art shift, and twerking (yes, twerking). If you plan on watching a lot of anime this Summer, be sure to add this episode to your list!
That will do it for our Top 5 Anime Beach Episodes on this post! We’ll be back next week with some more awesome posts as well as other updates from our upcoming projects.
Until then, stay gold! 😉
