Hikari Kohinata and Futaba Ooki have together found joy in many things through scuba diving and the most everyday of events. Hikari was born and brought up in a small oceanside town on Izu, and Futaba moved there from Tokyo, but the two polar opposites met at Yumegaoka High and instantly hit it off. The always-reserved Futaba found her perfect foil in the cheery and optimistic Hikari, and their friendship gave her the courage to take the first step and experience many of the smaller joys in life. She also took the Open Water Diver exam and passed, and now she has her sights set on the Advanced Open Water Diver certification.

This second season of Amanchu! offers more of the same in exploring Hikari and Futaba's growing friendship, gorgeous scenic shots, and the gradual growth of Futaba as she develops greater self-confidence in deep diving. On the one end, this season does introduce some new characters who connect with our two lead girls in some capacity and undergo their own gradual developments. On the other hand, the anime does stumble a bit in its middle section with an attempt to introduce a three-episode story arc involving a fantastical story element. While this element was smoothly integrated for episodes of Kozue Amano's prior work Aria the Animation, it doesn't flow so smoothly for Amanchu Advance as it takes away from focus on the more mundane mood offered from prior episodes of the series. While not as strong as its first season, Amanchu Advance still offers more of the same slice-of-life developments and gorgeous scenic shots of its prior season and Aria that will still more than likely grab the interest of slice-of-life fans.
