Sport, a pair of father and daughter and a NINJA - you will get probably the best cult anime in making.
Taisou Zamurai isn't only about sports, there are a lot of Slice of Life moments that you can't help but connect.
Story : 8/10
Still early in 4th episode, Taisou Zamurai already laid down a good foundation for a good ORGINAL anime. A struggling athlete (Jotaro) with his daughter (Rei) and a Mysterious ninja (Leo) who just want to see Jotaro in gymnastic court again certainly grabbed my full attention.
A nice story in making and I can say even closing my eyes that Taisou Zamurai is a
very good anime.
Art : 8/10
MAPPA again, doing Jujitsu Kaisen in same season, doing great job. Character design is not very fancy, yet goes very well with flow of the story. Animation quality is pretty good. It could have been better, but I am not complaining since I can guess this one is done by secondary staff. But they did a great job.
Characters : 9/10
I just loved Leo. He is probably the best NEW character in Fall 2020. He is funny, kind and very much NINJA.
Other then Leo, Rei is really a sweetheart. She is a perfect daughter even I am wishing for. (BTW I am not married 😜)
The protagonist isn't unique, but all supporting character really make him shine which is very enjoyable to watch.
Sound : 8/10
The ending is one of the GEM from this season. Really a COOL song to end every episode. Background music is OK.
Enjoyment : 9/10
I am really enjoying this. Lots of real life moments, Leo's funny antics and sports drama... this show is really going for me. Anyone who wants to see a good anime which isn't mainstream, should must watch this.
