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.

To remain or to re-main

It’s summer season, so it’s a great time for some water ball, I mean water polo. Sport movies/series genre in general are about underdog story. It’s almost impossible to deviate from this trope. Because of this, many sport anime become predictable. RE-MAIN didn’t stray away from this trope, but to my surprise I actually enjoyed this anime more than I expected.

The reason for this is the character. The dementia aspect helped making our main character interesting and conflicting, not just within himself with also in other people around him. Although his character transition near the end was a bit rushed ...

This anime as a whole does not deserve more than a 7. I'm not being honest putting an 8. But the last chapter has made it so for me.

The first 7-8 chapters do not deserve more than a 6, the important event that happens made the series a 7 until chapter 11, but the last chapter.... ah!!! I loved it so much. it has made me bloom many beautiful emotions. There are many anime that I would recommend before Re-main, but if you have time and want to see a nice story of a group of students who become friends playing a sport, give it ...

Mixed Feelings
Re-Main: the old term for "offside" in water polo, but honestly, this anime can be also said in this manner: it Re-Mains to be seen of the potential calibre of how much this show could've had, that squandered some liberties to make this show a decent one.

Paraded as one of many shows at the MAPPA Stage 10th Anniversary event, Re-Main is the brainchild of Tiger & Bunny author Masafumi Nishida, of which this not-so-young director has oversaw the anime and movie adaptations of his work in the past. And now, Re-Main is his 2nd self-directed series, and imagine someone like him has to manage all ...
