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 read more

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.

I personally love the concept of discovering something you love and truly being passionate about it. This show is exactly that.

KOSHIYAMA: An intersting character, like i said I love seeing pasionate characters so I really liked him
FUKAMI: Honestly I didn't care much for her. She was really only there for the main female character appeal and her brother's backstory
SASAJIMA: Calm cool and collected, there could be more back story to him
MIKURIYA: His rivalry read more

It's not often you'll see an anime based around a quiz game. This is what initially brought me to try Nana Maru San Batsu. To quickly summarize some of my thoughts on the anime, I though the art and animation were average at best, and apart from the amazing opening song, the same thing can be said about the soundtrack.A lot of the characters were either annoying or uninteresting. The way the story is presented, it feels more like a shounen rather than the seinen it actual is. The major positive I can say for the series is that when it got to doing the read more
