Amanchu!

Introverted young girl Ooki Futaba moves from Tokyo to Izu, and at school is seated in front of Kohinata Hikari ("Pikari"). Hikari nicknames Futaba "Teko", and half-drags her to join the school diving club. While reluctant at first, "Teko" discovers the joy of diving, which leads her to open up to other as well. Together with team advisor Katori Mato and other senior teammates, the club sets a goal of diving in the seas of Izu. This is a teen school drama about the friendship between "Pikari" and "Teko", with a theme of diving in the Izu seas.
