Quick review:

Do you guys like competitive "sports?" Do you get excited about seeing people compete with different ideologies and aspirations? Well look no further, you may or may not find that in Nana Maru San Batsu (which I will now call FFF)! It depends on what kind of taste you have. I personally would compare it to Chihayafuru because the concept of being the fastest in both respective sports is reflexes and finger speed. FFF surprised me with how well executed the journey is and how interesting a quiz bowl could be. I personally wouldn't do this at all, but I can see it being ...

Mixed Feelings
Quizzes and more quizzes. They could be fun if the watchers feel the same interest in both the questions and the participants. If you don't like quizzes shows, then you immediately will consider Nana Maru San Batsu (Fastest Finger First) as a total waste of time, and the only fastest finger that you will end seeing is yours when you "change" for other show.

Fastest finger first is over.
Finally, it was pretty bad.
The concept at the beginning was cool.
I don't know much about quiz bowl or even heard of the subject of it.
Which is the premise of the show by the way.
And I was semi excited to learn more about it through this anime.
And from the anime's view on quiz bowl presented to me.
It wasn't very exiting.
It was about these trivia super geniuses that can answer a question without hearing the entire answer through various techniques.
And apparently that is realistic to the actual thing.
