The notion of human feelings is one of mankind’s greatest mysteries, at least for me. Oftentimes in literature and media, our emotions are perceived as something complex and inconceivable. It was also said that these sensations are what separate us from other species.
In Tsuritama, Haru is a cheerful alien who came to earth to fish. This high-spirited extraterrestrial may look like a normal teenage boy but what he lacks is the understanding of human emotions. He used to give Yuki a hard time while doing the chores and say sorry without meaning it. But as he spends more time with Yuki, Natsuki, Akira, and the town of Eroshima, slowly he started to acquire emotions.
