Synopsis

Hideyoshi is a homeless boy living in New York in the near future, who survives by hustling other kids in basketball games. But now he's been drafted into a pro team-a pro team with a very unique goal. There once was a time when humans dominated the game of basketball. But times have changed, and now the physically superior alien players have taken over the game, and there are barely any human players left. But Hideyoshi's team-the first all-human team to compete in the Space League-intends to change all that, and bring the championship back home to Earth.

Buzzer Beater, a Basketball anime, I love basketball, never thought this anime would work, the first time I saw it, I shared that opinion, the second time too, but now I've watched it for the first time I really enjoyed it.

So it's about Basketball, intergalactic basketball that is. Which is a pretty cool idea, if they used basketball like it would be in real life, it would've been just as good as now, but perhaps the intergalactic part brings the anime more out to the public, sin...ce it's something special.

I really enjoyed the characters, the main character is like most shonen-kids, loud, irritating and cocky, ...

Note: this is from a video review, look for links on my profile page.

It is, nominally, about a game, but as is regular in the genre it turns out to be about the characters, although mainly focusing on a few. Like its similar predecessor, SD, BB is comedic and has a personality-driven protagonist that, despite the differences in height and blue, instead of red hair, can get into mischief. The comedy springs from there principally, but both have differing approaches to their relationships with other characters (SD has more of an attempt at romance); both, clearly, have a dissimilar number of episodes, and so can ...

Mixed Feelings
Buzzer Beater is an anime centred around the young basketball genius Hideyoshi and his attempt to take on the inter-planetary basketball league which is currently dominated by the physically superior Aliens.

Story - 6/10
The anime mainly focuses on the ...
