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.

This Anime was absolutely a charm. Been watching so many Anime recently, but this was like a fresh breath.
Absolutely loved the characters.
I wouldn't call it the best sports Anime out there, but it doesn't need to be the best. Sports might not be the best area this Anime expels at, but this Anime had a lot going for it. And they were really good.

Characters were great.
Especially the MC. They showed that MC, even though he was good, he was very flawed.
After the incident, he struggled, but he did not gave up. Other characters were also good. The helped lift each other up.
And the ...

Mixed Feelings
The anime is quite abnormal, but unique for a sports anime, but it's watchable. It 's also created by MAPPA so the animation and art-style is top notch. Though there should have been more content on the 3 year and 1 year long periods, like when they kind of "co-existed". Although in sports anime there's always a character who is a lot worse than others, nothing bad in it, but it's kind of "used". The characters were intriguing but I wish there was more content with his old team. I think some people might love it, others, well... enjoy it. It's a hard anime to ...

I have go to say, my mind was blown when I found out that MAPPA,
the same studio that did Jujutsu Kaisen and Yuri!!! on Ice, also
worked on anime like this and Days. Regardless, I consider this
to be a very interesting show that both embraces and subverts
tropes commonly found in sports anime.

Visuals: It's MAPPA, so the visuals are, as expected, pretty
great. Although not quite at the same level as some of this
studio's more popular works, Re-Main still boasts visuals far
above the average seasonal anime. However, I do have one gripe.
