I'm like the biggest sports anime fanatic right now and so upon seeing this series I knew I had to watch it. I've watched both episode premiers and I'm thoroughly impressed thus far. Tiny MC trying to make a point that regardless of size he can do anything: and to play a sport like rugby! Omg what a thrill. Story Reminds me of Haikyuu a bit which is a good comparison in my book. And like most sports anime, the MC usually has no prior experience in the sport he/she are participating in which is common. They usually have some hidden potential which makes up for what they lack and that can be a tad cliche. And although the reasoning behind him joining may be (I wanna make something of myself cause I'm the shrimp in the family), I lfind a kind of charm to that. There also seems to be some interesting back story to the taller friend of the MC that drives this series forward so far. Knowing how that works out will probably peak my interest more. So for now it's a 7. Sound Opening was hype in my opinion. Complete Eyesheild 21 nostalgia but way more melodic and intense. Soundtrack thus far is nice. The BG music reminds me so much of Naruto original series! So driving and heart pounding! Plus the added sounds to the action REALLY makes you feel like you're getting hit. Really good! Animation Whoo where do I begin?! The art style first of all is refreshing. They're SO masculine! (BARA, but without the intended adult themes) The definitive line details on each character is ridiculous. They move very smoothly and intensity adds with colour and overall depictions of scenes being played out. Watching the characters move is thrilling. Just fluid, fast, smooth, and detailed! Characters The designs are pretty cool. I LOVE the captain! His hair! WHAT EVEN IS THAT!? Haha, but seriously I like their personalities and overall contrasts with one another. Like Gion is so short tempered and energetic which fits his size. And it seems cliche but it works well for characters his size. NOT to mention the MUSCLE on that boy is wow. I do like Iwashimizu, (taller friend) isn't stoic. He's very soft spoken and quite timid which balances out the two a lot. (Basically like an Ed and Al relationship with the two and FMA is always good for character analysis) But damn he can tackle! Not to mention they focus on all the members of the team and not just the main characters. I love that they do that! Overall I love this series so far. Rugby is such a violent sport but like way better than American football Lolz. Plus just an uncommon sports topic. I think this is the first rugby anime published so that's cool! Give it a watch if you want.
La serie tiene un puntillo por encima a la media de series de deportes. Nos ofrece una buena animación y el sonido esta bien logrado, sus personajes son carismáticos (unos mas que otros) y cada uno tiene una buena personalidad que lo definen. Todo parece positivo pero no, la serie no avanza, si es verdad que los personajes crecen un poco pero el argumento en 25 capítulos parece que no se mueve. Otro problema grave que veo es la falta de un protagonista, "Gion" pese a tener un fuerte carisma no termina de evolucionar en la serie dejándonos sin momentos para recordar (en 25 capítulos....). Una pena, falto velocidad y mayor progreso del protagonista, espero que si salé una secuela pueda ver todo esto que falta.
Ive watched a decent amount of animes and never done a review before but I had to do one for this anime even if its short. If you like character development and a story which focus on every single character, you will love this anime. I read a comment somewhere about this anime where someone said the story was slow but after watching it, this is what most animes should be like. To be able to make us fall in love with all the characters and have an emotional attachment to all of them so if they were to do something in the anime, we would actually feel some sort of way for their actions rather than, 'oh its a side character , i dont care what he/she does.' The only negative I would say is the guys blush alot in this anime and as much as I love the character development, this is probably the only other anime I've cringed and lost count. Some people may like blushing males but I came to watch this anime for Rugby, a sport which requires balls of steel, so seeing guys blushing and having weird poses was just weird for me. Other than that, I would 100% recommend.
