Wave!!’s story is set in the coast of Oarai in Ibaraki Prefecture. Anime fans will know that the town of Oarai became famous because of Girls und Panzer, going from a sleepy fishing village to a popular anime tourism destination. But aside from tanks, the area is also famous for its surfing scene. And because of this, it’s a great choice to be the franchise’s setting. It follows Masaki Hinaoka, a local boy who encounters a prince-like transfer student who introduces him to surfing. And now, he meets some friends who also share the same passion for riding the waves.
