"Tsurune"—It's the sound made by the bowstring when an arrow is released, and the sound that inspired Minato Narumiya to learn kyudo, a modern Japanese martial art focusing on archery. However, an incident during his last middle school tournament caused him to quit the sport.

But soon, many factors conspire to make Minato take up the bow once again: the start of a new kyudo club in his high school, a chance encounter with a mysterious archer, and the support of his childhood friends, Seiya Takehaya and Ryouhei Yamanouchi. Together with his childhood friends and his new teammates, Kaito Onogi and Nanao Kisaragi, Minato rekindles his love for kyudo and works with his team toward their aim of winning the prefectural tournament.

I would say tsurune is more of a philosophical anime than sports anime per se. I dived into it thinking I was going to watch a sports anime something similar to “run with the wind” or “free” instead of haikyuu etc. Even with those expectations it was truly beyond it too. Tsurune is an anime about finding one self rather than doing some sport. Archery, here, represents more about the way of life. And coupled with KyoAni’s fantastic animation and masaru yokoyama’s soothing soundtracks, this anime presents itself as a healing slice-of-life. If you’re feeling empty then I’d suggest you to give this a ...

Mixed Feelings
Tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudoubu is a good show. Honestly, there is a certain standard one expects from KyoAni and surely this show didn't disappoint in that department.

Simply speaking, the basics of the story are similar to Free!. We are introduced to the main character named Minato (aka Haru), who abandoned his beloved archery, after developing target panic. After a faithful meeting with the coach Masaki, he nevertheless joins his school's archery team, where he is joined by his best friend Seiya (aka Tachibana), an archery rookie Ryouhei (aka Rei), cheerful Nanao (aka Nagisa) and tsundere Onogi. We are also very early on introduced to his ...

Basic and short review here.
The art of this anime is fkn mesmerizing, there are scenes with extremely beautiful settings and the animation is so on point.
The first episodes were fire and everything looked super good but it gets so freaking boring. The plot made no sense, I felt like I was watching a documentary of gay boys practicing the bow and arrow because the boys have like girly personalities, the girls have no emotions, the dog had more emotions than any girl in this anime, also too much repetitive and dull arguments about boy x boy drama, plus the SLOW pace of sequence ...
