Surprised nobody has made a thread yet in anticipation.

Honestly, I'm as much apprehensive as I am excited about seeing this. My fear is that the show lives up to the trailers, in which case we are in for a really vapid, trudging drama full of monotone dialogue. Basically, if all it offers is bishies in speedos, I'll be disappointed. My greatest hope is that, despite being marketed as lady fodder, the characters end up being well-developed and the sport actually presented in an engrossing, creative manner.

Please God, let it be Hajime no Ippo just with pretty boys.

This shit's gonna be fabulous, mark my words. I'm mainly watching this because I am yet again denied more JoJo, but hopefully it'll be entertaining to watch.

You'll have to keep wet for a while.

False alarm, in the end it was just some idiot saying it was because of the filesize. So there is a raw now.

Seems a win-win situation for you anyway.

If true, I'd be down for that

If its just BL fodder then at least I know how awkward girls feel when they watch fanservice aimed at guys
