Synopsis
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.

1. Skinny boys all over again... [Rating: 7/10]
A lot of the same elements used in Waterboys was used in Waterboys 2. You still have the small group of synchro swimmers struggling to find a way to keep their club alive, and struggling to find a place to practice/perform. You have the same problem with members, who join when the club is popular, and leave when the club is slandered against. You have the teachers who are opposed to the club for their own biased reasons. You have the female lead that is in love with the male lead, but hides her feelings because her friend likes the same guy. You have one of the boys getting physically injured and hospitalized as a result. You even have the aquarium where the synchro boys go to work.

However, regardless of the fact that you have the same basic structure in both dramas, the second season still manages to hold its own. The situations were varied and interesting, and although plot points are near-identical, the characters manage to grasp your attention. The five “chosen” main synchro boys were delightful to watch, as was Asami Reina is the overbearing student president. Kaneko Takatoshi was brilliant as Saotome-sensei. I’m really glad he wasn’t overdone and annoying to watch. And of course, Ishihara Satomi was wonderful and lovely and balanced the male lead, Ichihara Hayato quite well. Although I’m not at all attracted to him, he was adorable and paired with Satomi-chan, helped the “kawai-meter” blow a fuse.

I think I’ve become immune to skinny Japanese boys in speedos. I suppose Nakao Akiyoshi had a hand in it. Although he’s not terribly good-looking, he has a nice, ripped body (compared to the others…), and so he at least I could admire as a female viewer.

2. the same thing, only sweeter [Rating: 8/10]
Rather than go through all the similarities between this reboot and the other versions, I'll comment on what most impressed me. The kids in this series are small and noble and very endearing. Who couldn't love those precious, eager faces? I wanted to adopt them all. The acting, as in most doramas, is uneven. The leads are very subtle and earnest. Some of the secondary and tertiary characters are over-the-top, which caused me a bit of confusion. I should be used to it, but it clashes with the more realistic performances.

The parents are loving and sacrifice for their kids. All the corny portrayals of parents and adults in other doramas annoy me. At least even the silly adults in this one are kind-hearted. The more realistically-portrayed adults are likeable and set good examples.

The story is corny and goofy and sweet. What it lacks in believability, it makes up for in the charm and kindness of its characters. Water Boys 2 is a morality play, teaching its young viewers how to behave and care for the needs of others. Some might find this annoying, but I found it refreshing and it made me care deeply for the story's kids. They are winning and adorable, unlike the selfish and obnoxious teens that seem to proliferate.

Perhaps Water Boys 2 is a wishful reflection of the best in young people -- idealism, optimism, mercy, perseverance. At any rate, I usually have no interest in re-watching a series, but this one will be played over and over. I wish all kids were like these.

3. One of the best drama I've ever seen [Rating: 10/10]
One of the best drama I've ever seen. The casts are wonderful espcially the five main water boys, their united friendships made the impossible possible. Every episode is entertaining, funny and meaningful. I've been skip watching Water Boys 1, and went straight to the very last episode. In my opinion, comparing the two Water Boys drama, Water Boys 2 is a lot better than Water Boys 1. Starting from the opening credits, WB2 looked a lot more professional then that of WB1. And the ending of WB2 is moving and very emotional compare to the latter. The syncronized swimming moves performed in the last episodes show some similarities to WB1 and the WB movie. If you think WB2 is a duplicate of WB1 then I would say WB1 is a duplicate of WB the movie. In WB2, the synconized swimming moves performed were some what more advanced and at times a lot more difficult. This is esp true for the 5 levels tower that almost all the WB took part of. Water Boys the movie didn't have the tower, and Water Boys 1 had a 4 levels towers, but fewer people participated.

The new version of Niji sung by Fukuyama Masaharu was just wonderful and perfect for WB2 theme song.

The casts in WB2 are fairly well known. Great chemistry for the five main WBs. They are energetic and lovable.

Water Boys 2 has higher public viewing ratings then Water Boys 1, but the difference weren't too drastic. I highly recommand Water Boys 2, and I do like it a lot better than Water Boys 1.

4. good... but just a clone [Rating: 7/10]
Waterboys 2 is basically a clone of 1. It throws in almost the same roles played by different characters. I cant help but feel disappointed when i keep finding blatant similarities to 1. They also made it even more far fetched this time, although its supposed to be a happy go lucky show, i think they kinda overdid it abit.

small spoilers: (eg. 5 main characters/they always go to a bar/2 girls who likes the main character/alot of the moves during the final performance was the same as the first one/even the main theme is reused, albeit rearranged, and i yes prefer the original version of the song used in 1.)

This sequel only beats the first one in one aspect: eye candy. This time the main cast was really good eye candy, beating the first show totally. Other than that, i think the first show beats this sequel in every aspect.. I was touched when i finished seeing the final performance of 1. But not 2. Cos the final performance had too many moves similar to 1. When i saw them for the first time in 1, i thought "YES! they finally DID IT" , but it just isnt going to work when u do it a second time, almost copying moves from the first time.

I would only recommend this if u missed 1, though i would instead just go look for 1. Or u can watch it just for the eye candy. Its really good eye candy though.

5. Great Comedy as a Sequal Dorama... [Rating: 9/10]
I liked this story, it may have been a sequal to the first dorama, and also followed the movie, but it was still a great comedy which was one purpose for it.....Even though I can't compare it to the first dorama series, I still say Ichihara and Ishihara were a good combination, but a little bit of confusion as to where their relationship as cousins, was going....
Ichihara, Nakao, Saitou, Koike, and Kimura were all good parts to play as clumsy synchro swimmers.....the only thins I didn't like was the over ascting of the boys...whenever they had a serious, or exciting moment, they tend to have over acted it a bit, making it look synthetic as it shouldn't be.....but over all I liked this dorama, though may not take Ichihara seriously anymore....

6. New Version of the Old [Rating: 7/10]
To me, waterboys 2 is a much more polished sequel to its predecessor, if a bit superficial in its actual characters. The music updated with strings and piano, there's breathtaking scenery, two promising leads in hayato and satomi - but the supporting cast just didn't match up against that of series one. Nevertheless, it keeps you thoroughly entertained, even when you sense a bit of deja vu. In general, I do think it's a worthy secessor of the previous series, even though its obviously been revamped and possibly lost a bit of its original image.

I loved watching this drama. I thought it was a good combination between comedy and drama. Some parts were just so funny...and other times I found myself wanting to cry. This drama turned me into an Ichihara fan...and he and Satomi looked so cute together.
I liked the summer feel to it...and the theme song Niji fits well. Oh and did I mention how cool I thought the choreography was? It was just really fun in my opinion

Think this is better than the previous one, "Water Boys". Watched this is because I like Teppei and Keita but after watching the whole thing I found out that Ichihara Hayato is the most attractive and funny character, his facial expression is very cute, especially his smile. =) But then I am not quite happy with the ending of this drama and also the theme sond which is exactly the same as the previos one.

I think this was as great as the first. Though I would probably prefer the first if I have to choose between them. The friendship in the first season was better, I think. You got to know alot about all five of them, their troubles and thoughts.. but not in this second season. It's mostly about Eikichi and Yosuke, barely about the others. I'd like to know more about them and what they think.. I think the spirit and power from first season are more shown than this second..

However, I won't complain too much, otherwise it will sound like this second season is crap, but it ISN'T. I enjoyed watching it. The actor playing Eikichi was really great and convincing and the actor for Shiori was good as well. Overall, I liked all the actors. Hah, especially Yosuke. His sweet big smile makes the series shine XD.

The performance at last was soo great. The actors must really have been training to death when learning the tecniques.. They seem so difficult and it was so much. Really beautiful. It's admireable. They really did their best. Most of the vote goes for the performance ^_^.

However, if you have watched Water Boys, then you should watch Water Boys II as well. Although the plot is mostly the same, they are different in their own unique way, so this is recommended. This show has inspired me that synchronised swimming is pretty cool, even for boys. Wooh!

One of the best moodlifters ever. This show made me feel totally refreshed and uplifted and motivated - it's a great show to watch when you're feeling down or lost in life. The movie was fun, the first series wasn't that good though, but this second season was just awesome. Ichihara Hayato and Ishihara Satomi were really impressive in it. The synchro moves were more intense and beautiful than ever. This drama is an excellent tale of growing up, working hard and building understanding among family and peers alike. It will defintiely move the hearts of all who cherish such values.

Very nice second season. It's not often you find a dorama with a second season that doesn't become boring halfway through... this is one of those rare cases.
Much of the story repeated itself of course, but it's so exciting to see what they're going through and of course the last performance, which by the way is even better than the one from the first season!

Also refreshing to see it with 5 new actors, who all did a great job! The rest of the cast too of course!

Well like most people said this is the same plot as the original(of course not a copy like Gokusen for example), i was entertained by this one, but it wasn´t as good as the first one.
First the cast was much weaker, the characters tried very hard to be funny but they failed and they were annoying specially Koike Teppei; the story was way over the top and the constant overacting was annoying.
Well it´s good to spent some time but not has good as the first one.

the characters are so much bonded in this one.. and i say that this is better than the first series. I also think the characters make it even better as well, but the storyline also makes it much better. I was expecting not to be as good since usually sequels don't do that great of a job..but the producers did an excellent job on making this series definitely to watch every single detail of each episode..

Good comedy, a little over acting, but marvelous...Ichihara at a new view, a part from his bad-boy-self in Yankee as well as Koike...Saitou at another new look, hyper self, that looks like a role for his brother more than him.....and new comer Kimura Ryo, a wonderful edition to the team....As well Nakao, who I haven't seen in good luck, but was great playing the role of Ichihara's new friend.....

Again, a good series if you absolutely loved "Water Boys", but I didn't find this storyline as grabbing as its predecessor. The actors were great, but I preferred the previous team over this one mainly because the others seemed more sincere for some reason. Also, the ending was pretty predictable with the same kind of synchro performance. Don't expect too much of a difference in the plot either.

Pretty much a clone of Water Boys, but to be honest, I'm okay with that. I really loved Water Boys so it's great seeing more. I'm kind of glad they're not at Tadano anymore. I was also really really really happy that Saotome (from the movie) came back. I really love the whole "girls against boys" throughout the series.

Oh. And I frickin love Ichihara Hayato and Nakao Akiyoshi. Hahaha <3

Nov 2004: The overall plot is better than the first serie, but the last episode didnt impress me as much as the first series, maybe the choice of the songs.....a really good effort trying to do 5 storey tower, thumbs up for the actors who really put hardwork on this scene. As always, masha's theme song made the whole drama much more worth watching~ i never skip the ending.....XD

I didn't like the fact that the drama focused more on the guys just trying to get the damn club allowed, and the stuff that went outside the syncro club. I wished they focused more on the Syncro stuff like in the first one. However, this drama had it's own special points and the ending really put tears to my eyes so I gave it a 10.

In many ways its much better than the first water boys... The plot... the casting... the music (hmmm... the music?!? NVM... The first one had better bgms...) But the ending is REALLY disappointing... well.. at least imo...!! But overall its an excelent dorama!!!

I love this one like I loved the 1st series. Ichihara Hayato is funny and querky but still a lovable character. But the best thing about this dorama is Ishikawa Satomi who is notonly cute but awesome for the role of Yazawa Shiori. The last episode is amazing where they perform water synchronizing... FUNNY DORAMA!!!
14. Comments by kurii [Rating: 7/10]
Synchronization wasn't too bad, and the '5th' human pyramid was so-so... 'Waterboys' still tops it though... Maybe it was the fact that the same theme song was used? Making the dorama feel so ugh... Reminds me of this saying from The Simpsons: 'Ahh....It's been done' (From the Ep about the B-Sharps).

Sort of a let down. While I truly enjoyed the movie and the first series, this became slightly redundant. Notable acting from some young actors but nothing to get me hooked. The performance wasn't anything much more extraordinary either than the first two, except the 5 stories pyramid.

Not bad, overall pretty similar to the first one, but I think I liked this one better. Really interesting... speedos just used to seem so lame and ugly to me. But it all depends on who's wearing it...

Not as funny as Water Boys 1, rather the characters are a lot more determinant in Water Boys 2.
Both WB1 and WB2 were great. If I really have to choose, I would choose this one over the other.

Very fun!!! and the theme song is just so great! I sang it alone in my room, my neighbour was furious and got mad at me!!! Very fresh dorama. I didn't watch Water Boys 1 but this one is great!

One of the best moodlifters ever. This show makes me feel totally refreshed and uplifted and motivated - it's a great show to watch when you're feeling down or lost in life. The movie is fun, the first series wasn't that good though, but this second season is just awesome. Ichihara Hayato and Ishihara Satomi were really impressive in it. The synchro moves are more intense and beautiful than ever. This drama is an excellent tale of growing up, working hard and building understanding among family and peers alike. It will defintiely move the hearts of all who cherish such values.

A had NO IDEA that sequels could be this good! I think I actually like it better than the original Waterboys, which is just so awesome and surprising for me. It's so GOOD and HEARTWARMING and FUNNY, it's really a true great Jdrama in my book.
