Subaru Hasegawa has the ambition to become one of the best basketball superstars of all time. However, this comes to an apparent halt when his school's basketball team ceases activities for a year. Shocked by the news, he decides not to involve himself in basketball anymore.

One day, his aunt Mihoshi Takamura invites him to coach the Keishin Academy girls’ basketball team on how to play the sport, and he reluctantly agrees. He meets sixth-graders Tomoka Minato, Maho Misawa, Airi Kashii, Hinata Hakamada and Saki Nagatsuki, and begins training them in the sport with one goal: to defeat all strong opponents along the way.

Ro-Kyu-Bu! follows the effort of five elementary girls and their coach as they their cute style of playing basketball.

I'm somewhat perplexed by the number of 6's and 7's this anime is receiving. I was initially reluctant to watch this anime because of the score, but I'm glad I committed in the end.

Ro-kyu-bu is a loli/sports anime with a barebones plot and relatively static characters. While some might consider this points to criticize the anime on, I would like to point to the genre of the piece and remind everyone why we are watching this anime. To learn more about basketball? I should hope not. Sports anime is almost always a terrible representation of the actual sport itself. I will smack anyone who dares read more

When lolis and basketball are combined, the result isn't as bad as one might expect. Although it's far from great Ro-Kyu-Bu is a charming series.

If you are looking an anime that is heavily focused on basketball then you are looking in the wrong place. Basketball is simply the activity which brings everyone together. However the series does lack a solid plot because the focus is on the characters themselves making it feel like a slice of life some of the time. The series is character driven and the majority of this anime is spent developing the characters, which is okay but it makes it hard read more

"Lolicon: Or (The Unexpected Love for a Loli Character)"

Keizo, the director for Sekirei and Dog Days, was walking towards an unfamiliar house; the home belonged to an underaged girl, whom he had met online. A few days before, he asked the girl if she wanted to participate in a voice audition. She replied, “Yes”, under the condition that they perform the voice audition in her home. This was unusual, but he didn’t want to disappoint the producers, so he went. Now, you’re thinking, aren’t voice actors usually young to middle-aged women in their 20’s or 30’s? Well…a strange development took place.

Normally, his read more

I'm a big sucker for Lolis and when I found out about this anime I was pumped!

And after finishing it I can say I wasn't disappointed, rather very pleased.

If you are a Loli-lover this is a must watch and one of the best shows in that genre out there.

But lets get to the heart of the review and look on what this show did right and what it lacked in.

Animation
Ro-Kyu-Bu, made by Studio Blanc, which did nothing that I know of before did a generic job animating the show. To be honest, an anime in the SoL pseudo-sports genre will most likely look not that read more
