    Episode 1:

    This is probably my favourite manga of all time and I even do the translations for it. Given Gonzo and the PV, I was expecting it to be a terrible adaptation, but I actually have very little to complain about. It delivered where it had to, and was just an exciting watch. Maybe this won't be a train-wreck after all.

    Well hot dang, another sumo anime. Been wanting one of these since Matsutarou ended. And unlike Matsutarou, the MC here is actually likable and fun. Not to mention ridiculously awesome.
    Just takes punches for 15 minutes, then knocks that bitch on his ass in one hit.

    Good stuff.

    My first sumo wrestling anime and I already feel the hype. Can't wait to see where it goes!

    The fights are already this intense and it's only the recruiting phase. This anime makes sumo look really awesome.

    Oh, that fight was wicked. This kid is like a freaking redwood. You can't uproot him. And if you try, he smacks your ass down. Awesome. And hey, a full team already. Glad that didn't take long.
    This show rules.

    Great fight this ep. Show continued to be hype which is a good sign. If the title for the next ep is hinting at what I think it is, it should be the bomb.

    EP 1 and 2

    This show caught me off guard. I like it so far. Very interesting. I can see the creator trying to bring back the honor of Sumo into Japan. That said....

    She's either going to give me her future daughter to marry and take care off or she is going to give me a banana......worst edit I've ever done. It was rushed.....

    Episode 3.
    Who knew it'd be another tiny guy who'd give him his biggest struggle yet.

    Course he also fought another giant motherfucker. Which was also awesome. Just insults the big bastard til he regrows his balls and hops into the circle to whip his ass. If sumo doesn't pan out, he'd be a good motivational coach.
    Good stuff.

    Ep 3
    It ain't shounen till you name every fucking move and have animation flash in the background to show how "powerful" it is like power rangers on LSD.

    of course his main rivals will know each other and one be his opposite but never trueley able to catch up to him no matter how hard he tries.

    I love how everyone is always focused on his height, and not that he's built like a brick shithouse. Yeah he's short, but the kid is like 99% muscles. You'd think they'd notice.
    And he brought a freaking Sekitori down to his knee. Badass.

    Damn. I was hoping for some sports anime cliche where his secret move would win the day. But no, his scrawny ass got sent flying like he was air mail. That sucks, but I'm not completely surprised. But hey, the rest was awesome. Especially that Judo-Wrestling fight. That shit was boss.

    Oh, Captain coming out on top over Sanada was fucking BOSS. Gets jumped on to rattle him, then bitchslaps his ass and damn near tosses him out the ring. AWESOME! Yuma's fight was pretty boss too. That karate trick move was fricking cool.
