Riku Haruma enters high school without a future in sight. He sees people playing like monsters on the ground, jumping higher than anyone else, running fast, deciding to try their best. There, he sees Akira Kariya playing rugby, a sport he was once passionate about but gave up due to his physique. While Akira is running roughly, Riku gives him a piece of advice without thinking.

Well, after all the negative reviews... I felt like giving contra.

Story: I'll admit... when it comes to rugby... I have zero knowledge. But rather than enjoying the game, I prefer to look at the interactions of the characters.

To be honest... I'm disappointed. This could have been so much better.

But this totally stands and falls with the animation.

Have I seen worse? Yes.
Have I seen better? Hell yes.

Ok guys be warned I am going to rip apart this piece of garbage. I hate it so much that I can finally take all my anger with it.

Watching many kinds of filths can be really tough to endure, so sometimes in my free time I decide to do other activities like practicing New Zealand’s rugby national team dance, the Haka so like that, the Maori Gods can help me endure this piece of turd that I will talk about.

The torture I had with this was horrible that I want to forget it. I thought that Afterlost was ...
