If you're looking for a sports anime with fast-paced drama and naked men, this isn't for you. Tsurune is all about the journey, not the destination. It's about growth and self-love. As someone who deals with mental-health issues and has crippling low self-esteem, Tsurune touched something deep inside me. It describes feelings that are hard to pinpoint in oneself in such a beautiful way. I really enjoyed watching this and to any one who's looking for something new and fresh, look no further!
A lot of people may like this kind of stories, I do too when its implemented properly, with a good train of thought and a decent amount of chapters, which was not the case on this story by any plausible means. This author was either rushed by the publisher to release content no matter the low quality or the anime production company put too much pressure on a "good idea" that had no "real clear direction defined" while not yet finished or even started to begin with. Story (1/10) The concept of this story is really good in my humble opinion but was implemented poorly, as said above due to either over rushing of the author by the publishers or anime production teams or simply has no talent. Animation (8/10) The animation is decent, is neither amazing nor bad, but in general, is properly done, so if I'm objective here its a good animated show, so no comments on this aspect, a good rating is given where deserved. Sound (6/10) Neither good nor bad, there were no flaws but no flair either which is why I'll value it above "half and half" but that's it. Characters (1/10) With the potential of being great, the overuse of cliche and over-convolution of the story, the development of the characters is a hundred percent invisible, and only happens "in the last chapter" rush, so there is no essence, no depth nor any relatability to ANY of the characters on this story, so it doesn't deserve even the 1/10, I'd go in a 0, but that's well not fair either, so as lowest possible to "amount" a proper evaluation, 1 is the highest I could possibly give to this awfully implemented "AMAZING" idea and character development. Overall (1/10) Is not even worth a watch, I'd feel that recommending this to someone you hate is even more insulting than actually trying to kill them, is even insulting to you as the "recommending party", you are wasting your own precious time just recommending this.
So if I were to describe this anime in one word, it would be the word "bland". The message, the characters and problems were all normal, nothing special just like any other short sport animes, which frustrated me. I don't have time to watch this boring anime that aires every season and you don't even remember that you've watched. If you are new to sport animes, tsurune is a great choice to get started, the animation was gorgeous and it is an easy watch. But for me it was a real struggle, starting from the first episode I just knew where it was going, I got the general idea( and I should have just dropped it) but I just kept watching it, pushing myself because the animation was just stunning. Also the other thing that kept me entertained was the twins and Shu's face( his characteristic was bland as hell like the others). Overall it was a solid safe anime but I would not recommend to watch it.
