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. From that, Riku feels his dying passion for the sport set ablaze, and his future starts to brighten up...

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 read more

Try Knights? More like try HARDER to represent a sport that the main show doesn't know what to showcase. ESPECIALLY since (at the time of airing) this is the Japan Rugby World Cup, and it incorporates only one or a few types of play, and this show just went to whack every single type of Trys in rugby, as if to educate the viewer about the sport (like we know nothing DUH). Smarts.

At its core, this shitshow is an ultimate failure in all aspects: story/plot, characters, animation (the biggest sin) and sound. Need I say more?

There's no story, just high school boys with no motivation, read more

I felt bad for this series so many times during its run that I just lost count, for various reasons.

I mean, look, if you have your main character declare he will put a collar on the other main character in the very first episode... at the very least make it a thing. A gag, a running joke, something that comes up multiple times during the series for a bit of fanservice. If you have a flamboyant pink guy whose self-proclaimed motto is "enjoy and excite"... leverage that for fanservice. When you're showcasing a sport with so much body contact... put some fanservice in there, it's read more

I mean... what do you want me to say about this? This is like when Gainax and Production I.G decided to team up and make FLCL except we got the two worst studios working in the anime industry. I mean, this show is like the stars aligning for us. I mean, we are probably never going to get something this terrible for a long time. I mean... everything from the PVs to the schedule delays to the visual art following to the show, I knew this was going to be one of- no, THE worst anime I have ever seen in my entire life.
