Synopsis

After suffering from a shoulder injury, shy first-year university student Haruki Bandou gladly takes the opportunity to give up judo, failing to find happiness in the sport regardless of his family owning a dojo. He did not expect, however, that his best friend Kazuma Hashimoto would also decide to leave their university's judo club at the same time as him. Despite Haruki's protests, Kazuma already has plans for a new and revolutionary activity: a cheerleading team made up of only men. Although heavily reluctant, Haruki ends up helping his friend set up the team. Through sheer determination, and with support from their newfound club members, Haruki and Kazuma persist in founding the Breakers, the first ever all-male cheerleading team of Meishiin University, slowly making history in spite of the feminine tag attached to the sport of cheerleading and the prejudices, physical challenges, and self-doubts that inevitably follow.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Background

I first wrote this off as a generic sports type show but soon came to regret it much later as I enjoyed watching it a lot more than most anime this season.

The main appeal is the way the characters have to push through so many hardships to reach their near impossible goal of creating an all male cheer leading team. This creates an emotional story of overcoming embarrassment, fear, trust and physical boundary's which may prevent them from fulfilling their goal.

It's the only anime I've seen to make me cry, laugh and simultaneously want to do a handstand in the same episode proving read more

There are so many popular titles of sports anime already but, none of them has to do with cheerleading, a guys-only cheerleading, too. Does an anime that revolves around a male cheerleading team sound weird? Maybe, at first, but after just a few minutes in the anime, you can actually realize how interesting and refreshing it is!

In the beginning of Cheer Danshi!! we have the two main protagonists and childhood friends, Kazuma and Haruki, who decide to do something completely different from the ordinary, and obviously, they succeed. At first, there is the thought that it might be hard to get more members for their read more

There are only 5 episodes out so far, so this is going to be based on first impressions and my thoughts so far.

Story:
Even though sports animes is popular nowadays, this is a very original anime. It's about 2 boys who used to train Judo, but decided to try something new. You guessed it, Cheerleading. Every episode has a main focus, so the episodes can skip sometimes, but not so that you have no idea what's going on. It's very sweet and we see them develop from being at the bottom to slowly getting better. What's also good is that there is not that much focus read more

Before I begin this review, props to Waseda University Shockers for giving us this anime!
Watch the link to get an idea for the anime: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AE7QecvR3fQ

Men doing something like cheerleading? Not unheard of but this show is the definition of male empowerment! I believe no activity should be restricted to a certain gender with this show being the beginning of countless opportunities. This a series that has the sport cheerleading under the spotlight as we follow the lives of two former judo participants who embark in this new challenge.

The main character for this show is undoubtedly Bandou Haruki, who is a college student that has the read more
