I caught up with this now, and episodes two and three still haven't changed my opinion of this really. It's not exactly exhilarating, the cast aren't particularly likable and the art is really bland looking.

I think Ei-chan's methodical methods might become interesting down the line though, but for now it's nothing particularly enjoyable.

Yeah, this is pretty damn slow.
Even fans of the manga tell me it takes a while to get going, but starts getting good once you get actual matches.
I'm almost tempted to take a peek at the manga to see how it is paced, as it MUST have been better paced than the anime.
I have a problem imagining how a sports series with a start this slow was able to survive the first months of publication.

I can't see the matches being amazing either to be honest. I don't really like the characters, and the writing seems to be very by the numbers, and the poor animation quality isn't going to make them appealing to look at like they are in Kuroko and Haikyuu.

I'm very skeptical.

Yeah, I'm skeptical too, at least to the anime. I might try the manga later, but I hope the anime will be able to prove my doubts wrong.

As a fan of this manga i can say I've been really apprehensive towards the anime adaptation. After catching up my opinion hasn't really changed much. I fear things are going to take too long to develop.

That being said it's refreshing to get a MC who's not completely devoid of confidence and who needs people to push him along at every obstacle. i'm willing to remain optimistic at this point since it's only 3 episodes in.

Actually that's a fair point, Ei-chan (i need to learn his full name) working things out for himself is a pretty big plus for his character, and i do like his methodical and academic approach to the sport. Not so good to hear that my fears about the slow pace seem to be true for manga readers too though, i hope it picks up soon when we're done with introducing him to the basics of the sport.

Ugh, some flimsy tennis logic ruins this episode.
