Synopsis

Two years ago, five high-school boys brought fame to a small town in Japan. What was so unique was that they formed a "men's synchronized swimming club." Their involvement and struggles while learning synchronized swimming - known to be a sport for girls - brought much attention to their school and town. Two years have passed since that summer, and the boys of Tadano High School are still in the club. This drama shows how these young boys fight to learn synchronized swimming, fall in love, and enjoy friendship with one another.

Reviews

I watched the movie version wich was awesome and very funny, so I figured that with these Johnny's Jr. kids, the drama would be just as good. It's still pretty funny and to tell you the truth, I like it a lot better than the movie. More story development. - Mari

The plot is kinda repetitive from the movie. In fact, nothing can be compared to the movie version. It's the mother of all waterboys installment, for cryin' out loud! Well, i'm still entertained by Waterboys TV. Simply because its funny. I just wish that the creative team create NEW sinchro coreography. - Ultranguik
