Synopsis

Matsutarou Sakaguchi is a giant roughneck man with strength far beyond ordinary people. He never uttered words like "work hard," "strive," and "dream" like the typical shounen manga protagonist. However, he is stronger than anyone and peerless in sumo wrestling. His greatest weakness is his own carefree personality. He grows into a full-fledged sumo wrestler.

This anime is a very late adaptation of the manga "Notari Matsutarō" which received 1978's Seinen Shogakukan Manga Award. The author Tetsuya Chiba worked on Ashita no Joe with Ikki Kajiwara. Both Matsutaro and Joe are against conformism and started as real jerk, but their paths are different.

Art : 5/10
Nothing special, it is kind of retro-type.

Sound : 5/10
Pretty classic.

Story&Character 9/10 (they are meant to be together):
It's an adaptation, and the original story started in 1973. It was very rare back then in Japan to have anti-hero as main character. The story is only about Matsutaro, a man that represent every "failures" in japanese society. The read more

DOSUKOI!

Ok, so far nobody hasn't made a review of this retro type of anime, well, we all know that its manga version "Notari Matsutarou" was started in the 70's and ended in the late 90's and I can't blame anybody for probably having some lack of interest of anime since it has a rather slow progression and underrated, so I'm gonna give my ratings as to this anime's category, but take note that I'm gonna subject this review for updating on its last episode which right now (9/29/14), so here are my ratings, DOSUKOI!!!!:
