Lacking what is considered the most important asset in basketball, Sora Kurumatani has struggled with his short height since the inception of his love for the game. Despite missing this beneficial aspect, Sora's unwavering drive never allowed his small stature to dictate his ability to play, believing strongly in trying his hardest and persistently practicing to prove his capability.

In hopes of satisfying his mother's wishes, Sora enters Kuzuryuu High School to become a member of the basketball club and compete wholeheartedly in tournaments. However, Sora is disappointed to find out that the boy's basketball team is nothing but a retreat for punks who have no interest in the sport. Sora also comes to learn that brothers Chiaki and Momoharu Hanazono—whom he becomes acquainted with—have also lost their once spirited motivation to play.

Determined to revive the basketball team, Sora challenges the boys to a match against him, where his quick feet and swift movements overwhelm the group. Gradually affected by Sora's impressive skills, sheer effort, and tireless devotion to basketball, the boys unexpectedly find their burnt-out passion for the game rekindling once again.

This review is being written based on the first 9 episodes that I watched so for those who are thinking of looking into the anime I will tell you that you won't be disappointed especially if you like basketball.
The story seems good so far it's the classic story about forming a team and getting to the top it didn't feel like the episodes were rushed and there's no filler aswell.
The art style is good a bit different from the others but still looks neat,the opening is good aswell but I feel like it spoils too much if you watch it you will see why.
The characters read more

Well the characters are ok, the protagonist is good but besides him i dont really like the other characters nor their design the big guy is quite annoying the blonde is ok and the others not at all interesting, the story isnt very interesting or exciting the protagonist has the height disavantage but thats all.
