Three years ago, the former all-girl Himeno High School opened its doors to male students, but remains a female-dominated institution with the majority of students being girls.
One day Eikichi Mizushima transfers from prestigious Aoba High School in Tokyo where he was a member of the swimming team. While his father is away in New York starting a new business, Eikichi has decided to come to Himeji and live with his grandfather Kamekichi.
Yosuke Yamamoto had always wanted to establish a boy's sports club in school. When he learns that Eikichi belonged to a swimming club, he springs into action.
The other boys in the school include Senichi Kawasaki nicknamed "Wolf Boy Sen", the good-looking Iwao Iwata who is the only boy the girls talk to, and Hideki Sano, the rich son of the President of a major supermarket, who is always surrounded by fans. Eikichi's arrival soon influences the boys in school and changes their way of thinking.
Eikichi is surrounded by unique characters at the school. Shiori Yazawa, a senior at Himeno High, together with her parents Akira and Kaoru, live in a rented portion of Kamekichi's house. Kayo Oba, the student body president, is feared by the boys. Kozue Kitagawa, a devilish girl, belongs to the school wind ensemble together with Shiori. The substitute teacher Hijiri Saotome is a former swimmer at Tadano High School. English teacher Natsuko Ohara strongly opposes "men's synchronized swimming." Classic literature teacher Haruka Koshino hates men. And then there's the coffee shop owner Kozo Kasuya, who has something fishy about him. --Fuji TV

Wow this drama is fantastic; really upbeat from start to finish with a very polished feel. It felt like a lot of thought went into it. I just loved the little animations in the opening & ending credits. Normally I skip over the credits after a few times but I watched it each time right to the end. Fukuyama Masaharu's "Niji" song fits so well with the overall mood as well as the shots in & around the school.

The cast is a perfect fit too. Ichihara Hayato is great in this. He's such an enthusiastic actor. He brought a lot to Eikichi's character & made him very endearing to watch. This drama is such a great tale of optimism, perseverance, growing up & learning to work with others. Every single episode is entertaining & meaningful.

There's no need to watch the first movie, drama or final movie to enjoy this. They are completely unrelated other than having the same theme as a base.

I skipped the first series just because I wanted to watch something I hadn't seen with Ichihara Hayato & was only going to check out a couple of EP's before I had other stuff to do but I was hooked from the first episode & just couldn't stop unless I really had to.

As much as I would have loved to see more the ending suited the mood of Water Boys 2 perfectly. This is how feel-good dramas should be. I really wouldn't change a thing. Well maybe I would XD. I'd add another 20 episodes LOL!!!
