Have you ever watched a glimpse of a show that captivates you from not the overall of the first episode, but in the first 3 mins of the show (and NO I'm not kidding)? Then Hanebado is the premiere show and one of the better ones to watch this Summer season. From the get-go, this series gets full-on with the techniques, visuals and storytelling, checking all the boxes of a series that's worth a shot to remember.

Hanebado, in a nutshell, is like sports shows in the realms of Haikyu! and Kuroko no Basket where the sports genre is played at the centerpiece and is what read more

Hanebad AKA Hanesaki Badminton is yet another underwhelming sports series from 2018. This time, our series focuses around edgy feelings stuff, crying scenes and other melodrama, and the title itself already acknowledges it is bad.

Apparently, life is pointless and so is badminton, so wearing an edgy face directly from Madoka Magica whenever someone hits the ball, or cringe flashbacks with sad feeling stuff occurs, is obligatory. I have no idea what the series tries to accomplish by anyone crying every 5 minutes and reflecting their suicidal vanity via badminton. Better cut myself some wounds that won't heal to understand how deep it is, I read more

Most people think the 'bad, in Hanebado is for 'badminton.' Unfortunately, it literally stands for 'this show is bad'. Long story short, this show is not impressive in the slightest. Abysmal writing and comic book antagonists (that would actually be disrespectful to comic book villans though)

Remember the show "Everyone Hates Chris"? This is pretty much Everyone Hates Ayana. They introduce a new rival every week that just make no sense. The characters don't care about badminton at all for the most part. Everyone seems like they hate it. The whole show is just doom and gloom. Every week we think they are turning a corner, read more
