When Minato Kiyomizu wakes up in a hospital, he learns that he has been comatose for 203 days. As it turns out, a car accident has caused him to lose all memory of his middle school journey. Eventually, he discovers his former glory in water polo and desires to continue where he has left off. However, embarrassingly becoming aware of the massive disparity between his old and current self, Minato begins intensive rehabilitation in hopes of starting anew—a life without water polo.

Yet, Minato is promptly reminded of his past prowess and a promise on his very first day in Yamanami High School. Soon enough, despite being completely aware of his ineptitude, he joins the school's water polo club! While needing to relearn the sport's basics, he, along with his clubmates, must recruit new members to attain the required seven-man roster. With that, Minato tries to rekindle his deeply buried talent for water polo—and become one of Japan's renowned players once again.

Re-Main is also streamed on the Ani-One Asia channel on Youtube.

Episode three of the anime was delayed for one week due to the special broadcast of the British Open 2021.

once again, this cour has presented yet another sports anime, and this time about water polo. Not everyone knows a lot about water polo, so it did pique my interest. Not to mention Mappa was the one animating it, so i thought wow, looks good, let's give it a try. This is what I can say:

Story: 7.4/10. A lot of sport animes, such as Haikyuu, always take up the beginning eps to explain and emphasize the individual stories of the teammates. So far they've taken up 4 episodes doing this. Not that I'm complaining, but since they used up 3.5eps in a 12ep cour, I'm read more

First place for the cheesiest title in anime history—like, "Re-Main" as in become a main character again? Really?

Story: Minato Kiyamizu was a water polo champion in middle school but loses all his memories of the past three years due to an accident. He initially plans to quit water polo since he can't even remember playing it, but a bet with the equivalent of $100 on the line makes him pick up the sport again. I haven't seen amnesia used this creatively to get a protagonist who is both a prodigy and a total rookie. 8/10

Art: MAPPA doesn't disappoint. The in-water animation is stellar, and the read more

Look, I absolutely love sports anime, so seeing Re-Main, a show about water polo of all things, I was so excited for some fun, tense, and hype stuff that even I enjoyed, but in the end, I was ultimately let down by some of the most outrages bullshit plots and *some* terribly boring or basic characters. Re-main has been a pretty forgettable experience as an anime.

Plot/Story: 4/10 "So how do we make an interesting show WITHOUT any of the steps to get there or making it airtight whatsoever", well just do what Re-Main does. Basically, the main character gets in a fucking car crash, lands read more

i really do not understand why people avoid watching sports anime because they dont like or they havent played that particular sport the anime is about.

Re-main has been a little slow but very decent anime till now and now that its catching up some pace from episode 4 it seems that it will become even more enjoyable from here on out.
The anime only has 12 eps for this season and maybe it will get renewed for new season depending upon its success in west and especially in japan.

Other than all that the animation seems good ,it is not very detailed but its very clean.
