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 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.

Buzzer Beater was an anime with a fair amount of potential, but it is in my opinion lacking what makes a good sports anime.
There is a lack of effort put into the series and although I have not watched the sequel ( Buzzer Beater 2007 ), this first installment was not satisfactoy in terms of "sports action" nor noticeably entertaining (thus renegating it to the level of timekiller).

Story - 6/10
The anime mainly focuses on the read more

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, read more

They tried...Just another basketball-based anime. Though unlike slam dunk and dear boys which leaves a huge impact on the audience, it is somehow entertaining. i read some reviews about this anime and saying that it suck is totally unfair. It is not as exciting as those i have mentioned earlier but it's entertaining or maybe i'm just a huge fan of basketball. hehe i'm not a fan of its art but it has some attratctive guys or gorans there.

The story obviously revolves around a blue-haired kid (hideyoshi) with extraordinary talent he always bad mouth his opponents saying he'll win and he makes sure read more
