Riku Haruma enters high school without a future in sight. He sees people playing like monsters on the ground, jumping higher than anyone else, running fast, deciding to try their best. There, he sees Akira Kariya playing rugby, a sport he was once passionate about but gave up due to his physique. While Akira is running roughly, Riku gives him a piece of advice without thinking.

Big rant coming up.

I will say this from the get go.

So what do you get when the 2 of the worst animation companies that are the current state of Gonzo who had done Welcome to the NHK and Afro Samurai but delivered the spectacular crapfest of Conception in 2018, and a dumb Hentai studio called Seven that has done amazing stuff like Ousama Game, Galaxy Tylor, Joshikausei and many abhorrent non sexual shows, combined to make what it seemed to be the promotion of the Rugby World Cup 2019 that will be played in Japan.

I don't know about you, but when I watch a sports show, I WATCH a sports show (with all its fancy footwork and such).

We haven't had a lot of anime about rubgy, so having one now adds to the catalogue of sports, hooray. However, that's by no means an indication of a show's quality, and Try Knights isn't that kind of show to marvel upon.

It's just good ol' fashion rugby that just doesn't have a stand to the other shows, even yet on its groundwork of similar shows like All Out!! and the other sports-y stuff. Yet...I think this has potential (that's why I never read more

Review up to episode 5. Verdict: A "mediocre" 5.
About me: 20-ish woman, so I'm exactly the advertised target audience. I've enjoyed sports anime such as Kuroko no Basuke, Tsurune, Haikyuu and Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru and hell, even gone through Yuri on Ice as well as Free!. I'm no rugby (or sports in general) fanatic and I'm fine with not 100% accurate technical stuff.

To be honest... I'm disappointed. This could have been so much better.

But this totally stands and falls with the animation.

Have I seen worse? Yes.
Have I seen better? Hell yes.

You don't just animate a title with a manga that has art read more
