About Grand Blue Dreaming Manga Volume 1

Grand Blue Dreaming manga volume 1 features story by Kenji Inoue with art by Kimitake Yoshioka.

After graduating from an all-boys’ high school, Iori Kitahara moves away from home to go to college in a seaside town. He’s eager to start a new chapter in his life—one filled with dreams of reinventing himself, meeting beautiful girls, and reveling in his youth. But when his new abode is his uncle’s dive shop, Iori’s college debut doesn’t turn out as glamorously as he planned! Can Iori keep himself afloat, or will the booze-fueled antics of his university’s diving club wash him away?!

A coming-of-age tale with beer, bums, and the Grand Blue!

Grand blue dreaming is worth buying


I love this series, and i will definitely be buying all volumes. Grand blue has a comedic style that not many manga manage to nail. It is overly intense in it's delivery of most jokes, it manages to land incredibly unrealistic situations with a sense of realism, and the pacing makes it so that you never get tired of the comedy. The characters are all enjoyable and fun to see. Definitely a great comedy manga

Good O' College Days..

I've been reading manga for quite some time but nothing compares to the pure comedy to be had in this series! It's rare to have so much binge drinking in a manga, but that's the beauty in it! Cannot recommend it enough!

Most Definitely your normal manga about diving

by -

Hilarious and Entertaining is what I can say about this manga. While the manga is supposedly about deep sea diving, it is actually much more than that and is sure to leave a smile on your face.

Comedy to combat covid blues


A great pick-me-up manga! It's full of entertaining characters, comedic hijinks, and a unique and special charm.

Get this book with a cup of "oolong" tea

I fell in love with this series when I first watched the anime and it was hilarious. I knew I needed to pick up this series ASAP. This series is definitely captured the diving aspect accurately because as a former swim team member, stripping out of your clothes is a normalize thing in swim along with walking around in undergarments and bathing suit. It just shows that no one really is watching you. With that said, if you want something funny and light pick this one up and I guarantee you it will make you laugh. I love rightstuf when it comes to ordering manga as they have all the series you are looking for and they make sure to pack it securely!

If You Like to Laugh, Try this One.


Great comedy manga that doesn't fail to make me consistently laugh every chapter. Style of comedy is immaculate and the characters are great too. Artwork is also very good and detailed, especially in the reaction faces. Don't come in expecting a complex story or something deep though. Good manga to turn your brain off to and have fun laughs.

A diving, comedy, romance manga... with some alcohol involved. My favorite comedy manga!


The cover art for Vol 1 tells you kind of what this manga is about. Diving, drinking, friendship... and romance? Oh and if you watch the back cover you'll see that there's nakedness too lol. The spines for the series are pretty normal as they're all the same. The story of Grand Blue (Dreaming apparently), is pretty simple but different at the same time, as there are not many manga about college life. The 1st 4 color pages are breathtaking, by page 6 we learn that our MC Iori is going to college near the ocean, so he's moving with his uncle to his Grand Blue diving shop, by page 9 we meet a beautiful girl, and by pages 12-13 everyone's naked and drunk... yes, it's like that. By the end of the chapter Iori is naked, drunk and gives a terrible impression to his cousins, the older one was the beauty mentioned before, Nanaka, and the younger one Chisa, who was looking forward to meet her cousin, enters the shop when Iori was naked and drunk. Comedy like no other, it's a 10/10 for me.

The Peer Pressure of Life

by -

Sadly, I did not find the story funny or entertaining. I dinged one star for alcoholic antics, for inappropriate behavior dinged one star, and pranks on girls dinged one star. I did find that the girls were pleasantly drawn, two stars.

If you like college, crazy, alcohol, extreme antics, and gags on girls, you may want to check it out, as for me, I'll stop here.
