Natsuza Yuzuki has been playing rugby as a left-winger ever since he was a child. After enrolling in Doushisha University, he quickly becomes a rising star in the Kansai University League.

His dreams are shattered, however, when a nasty motorbike accident leaves him with a spinal hernia—making him unable to be able to play rugby ever again. With no role available other than the position of manager, he accepts his new post and hopes his squad can obtain a league title.

Yuzuki's team is an unlikely group, including his stoic best friend and full-back Seiichirou Jingyouji; hot-headed first-year Yasunari Tsuru, who harbors a strong dislike for Natsuza, filling his senior's old position as left wing; and Yuu Mashiro, who is struggling to hold his ground as a scrum half.

Despite Natsuza putting his all into training his team for a league title, their squad still feels incomplete. A year ago, Ibuki Ueka, the genius fly-half that was once Doushisha's ace, suddenly quit rugby—and now Natsuza is determined to get him back.

Sports anime? More like a Boys Life anime. I learned nothing about rugby but wholeheartedly enjoyed the character interactions and Natsusa being a snarky, lovable gremlin. For only 12 episodes, there was a lot of potential for the plot to be fleshed out more and for the character stories to be explored fully. Instead of a focus on the sport anime genre, this show falls into more of a slice-of-life category, so if you're down to relax and watch some chaos ensue from Natsusa's shenanigans, here you go.

Mixed Feelings
the plot of the story is not bad actually however i feel that the execution wasn’t being made very well.

the anime is about rugby but there wasn’t much explanation about the game itself. for someone like me who know nothing about rugby, i have no idea how many people there are in each team, what kind of player position there are, how do they score, what is the points they received each time they score a goal etc.

i'm currently on episode 3 of "try knights" which is also a rugby theme anime, at least "try knights" bother to explain the rugby game at the end ...

Story & Characters: 2/10
Number24 does well to introduce a lifestyle characteristic among the gung-ho sport of university level rugby. The story is more on the idyllic side with its laid back tonality between characters and rugby matches; This leads me to say that it doesn't suit the typical mens sport theme well in my opinion. This series centers around a very exuberant main character Natsu whose purpose is to appear vulnerable among the other players in the team; He tends to involve himself in situations that don't require his input and becomes quixotic as the story progresses. However, that aside I found the genuine comradery ...
