Not one mention of the Full Metal Panic?! Fumoffu beach episode? For shame! Mad

Seeing GunXSword on there is nice, though.

Aw yisss. #9 on the Women's list. When the beach trope gets intertwined with delicious, unexpected plot development.

I have to go with Gurren Lagann, simply for the tongue-in-cheek gag of Yoko wearing a swimsuit that's far less revealing than her usual outfit.

And it was completely absent in the original novel. Maybe the anime creators liked boats.

It makes every dumb anime poll I've ever seen worth it.

Episode 7 of the recent Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid features some lovely swimsuits and plenty of beachside fun. Smile

My personal favorite is the Bleach episode, a little bit surprised that didn't resonate with some of the people being polled.

...... Kamigami no Asobi episode 3?
Okay, they only had them for like a minute (and then they brought them back in the next one, so there were two swimsuit episodes).
But episode 3 had Takeru in a fundoshi. That was the best. Touken Ranbu only had one, and it was Mutsunokami and he's not even attractive.

. . . . . . . . . . . . Haruhi Suzumiya's Endless Eight arc should be on here. They had different clothes in every episode. The swimsuits and yukata scene, and the parts where they took off the frog costumes, and the parts where they were on the roof and Itsuki tells Kyon to just kiss Haruhi or something - all very attractive outfits.

I'd consider any episode that doesn't feature that goddamned dark blue school swimsuit thing with the white nametag over the chest -- or any kind of microbikini, including the slingshot thing -- a good swimsuit episode.

hsdfhsh Another. Nice. I agree with that. One of the best beach episodes around.

Much thanks to Lynzee for the SAO thumbnail since when I see Asuna, I often picture Lucy Heartfilia (as Cherami Leigh voiced both). Lucy fan service is the main reason I enjoy "Fairy Tail".

Nice to see the Gun X Sword there, both versions of the episode have their charms. Twisted Evil Despite myself liking the anime TV series Kokoro Library, shame it didn't make the list. I would also personally would of liked to see the Rock Lee SD spinoff tv series beach episode, make the list IMO.
