Teekyuu is all about the wacky antics of four schoolgirls—Kanae Shinjou gets bored easily and often breaks the laws of physics to get what she wants; Nasuno Takamiya is incredibly rich and knows how to make things go her way; Marimo Bandou would probably get arrested from her actions like eating panties or kidnapping children; and Yuri Oshimoto, their ordinary junior, rounds out the eccentric bunch that forms the sole members of their school's tennis club.

Despite their interest in learning the sport, the older girls prefer messing around, while Yuri, being the only one who actually knows how to play and the most mature in spite of being younger, has to deal with her seniors' out of control behavior.

When these four girls come together, insanity ensues in this lightning-paced comedy about a tennis club that doesn't really play tennis.

If you're smoking too much SHAFT anime and can't stand normal anime (e.g. non-SHAFT animes), watch Teekyuu. It's about a bunch of girls on crack playing tennis. The director's the same guy who did Ben-To and also did some episodes of TTGL. So you know it's gonna be absurd to the max.

And what does the show make you feel after you finish 12 episodes of greatness?

It's kind of like a gentle wind.
It's kind of like a delicious rice cake.
It's kind of like a clamorous city.
It's kind of like a precious everyday.

That's how awesome Teekyuu is. Smoke Teekyuu everyday, people.

Mixed Feelings
This anime was a wild ride. I watched this because of my sudden interest in 'shorter' and 'crack' anime, and this definitely delivered. The show will take almost no time to watch, but it's funny enough to keep you entertained.

There really isn't a story line. There are only four characters pretty much, and the entirety of the show focuses on whatever they're up to.

The art is alright. While the main characters are differentiated enough, the backgrounds aren't done very well and the animation is choppy and closer to stop motion. I have no idea whether it's intentional, but it annoyed me at first. ...

How can you review an anime where each episode is only 2 minutes? Very briefly of course!

Judging by the cover,Teekyuu seems like a typical "slice of life" anime about a girl's tennis team. The kind of anime that fans of the genre call, "cute girls doing cute things". However, it is actually a profoundly unfunny attempt to spoof those types of anime in the same way that Kill la Kill spoofs fighting shonen series and Panty and Stocking spoofs intentionally offensive American gross out cartoons. This means that Teekyuu's method of spoofing is of course to take as many cliches from the target genre as ...
