Impression: This is a short but sweet series about a guy who finds himself in debt after having been conned into giving money to some girl who had claimed to have needed the money for her dying father’s surgery. This leads to him becoming the captain of the ship of a different girl who lent him the money to pay his debts and now he has to help her hunt down these monster sea creatures in the seas. It’s one of those Shonen series that really knew what it was doing but was shot down in the prime of its life for some reason. From what I hear, the author was incapacitated - whatever that means. It’s got high a dosage of low-brow and slapstick silliness that normally doesn’t do much for me but it manages offset the downsides with a pretty interesting premise, awesome action scenes and some pretty solid characters. But like I said, the only real downside is the abrupt ending. Fortunately it ended in such a way that a sequel not too unlikely.
