Tatsuya Yoigoshi, a once nationally recognized soccer player, is now a first-year student at Noukin High School. Due to his developed hatred for sports, he has abandoned his previous aspirations to become a famous livestreamer on the internet. One day, Souma Azemichi, a first-year on the kabaddi team, seeks to recruit Yoigoshi and spontaneously interrupts his livestream.

Without any expectations, Yoigoshi follows Souma to the school gym, where he witnesses second-years Kyouhei Misumi and Shinji Date engaged in the primal contact sport of kabaddi. Despite ridiculing the rules of play, Yoigoshi is stunned by the intensity of the round. Because of an enticing deal and slight coercion, he agrees to settle the prospect of his recruitment through the most invigorating way: a battle of kabbadi, a team sport played empty-handed.

Kabaddi is a fairly popular sport in South Asia, particularly the Indian subcontinent where it is often played by rural kids during the summer. In my country Bangladesh, kabaddi is officially recognized as the national sport, and I myself used to play it a lot few years ago. All of this makes the sport seem very favorable, but when you go past South Asia, you begin to realize how obscure it actually is. Outside the boundaries of Asia, it is extremely difficult to find someone who has even heard of kabaddi, let alone someone who has played it. Guess how surprised I was then, when ...

This had potential to be amazing. Instead, it's just…. Decent. Don't get me wrong, I still really enjoyed this show quite a bit, but it just does not hit anywhere near the potential because of the extreme lack of animation.

But before getting into that further, what is this show about? Shakunetsu Kabaddi is about the sport of Kabaddi, which I knew absolutely nothing about. It's a sport that's most popular around India, and to oversimplify the rules drastically: two teams of 7 on each side of the court take turns to send one person to the other side and tag others out, while trying not ...

Its pretty alright, It's just average on everything.

I don't personally play the sport but if you do, this might be enjoyable to you. Though I find the anime somewhat enjoyable,

The characters are your standard sports anime characters, the gifted one, the underestimated yet strong, the smart one, the hard worker.

This anime isn't revolutionary and definitely not something everyone would enjoy. But if you did watch it you will surely make you want to play the game and be curious about it.
