Junpei Murao's love affair with ballet began at a young age during his sister's ballet recital, when a male ballet dancer roused his interest with a gripping performance. But for Junpei, nothing could be worse than his peers finding out about his secret passion for ballet and perceiving him as effeminate. That is why he is in the soccer club, trains Jeet Kune Do, and is intent on following in his father's footsteps of becoming a stunt coordinator: all very "manly" activities.

When Junpei's classmate Miyako Godai spots him demonstrating an impressive kick that combines skills from ballet and Jeet Kune Do to his friends, she suddenly recruits him to join her mother's ballet studio. He resists at first, and although he has abandoned his dreams of formally pursuing ballet, nothing quite captures the euphoria that ballet elicits. After suppressing his desire to pursue ballet for so long, it is not so easy to shake off his hesitation and break free of the shackles of masculinity. Junpei has to be willing to make certain sacrifices and fully commit to ballet, all while risking losing some friends.

This is my first time writing a review so I'm going to try and keep this short and sweet. (edit: I guess its not my first lol, forgot i posted one before)

But this anime was definitely not one I expected to like as much as I did. I usually give all genres of anime a chance and decide if I want to continue after a couple episodes. This one was worth the shot.

The story telling was done so well. Everything from the animation, to the music, to the pacing. From start to finish I found it to be thrilling and fulfilling all at the same ...

This is my #2 anime of the season for Spring 2022, it's unlikely another anime will come along that will grab my heart, blow softly on it to nurture hope and budding feelings, then toss it around with angst and drama until emotions overflow into tears.

Story and Character 10/10

Initially I thought it would be one of those generic sports anime but this time with ballet. And then, episode 1 employed several hooks that grabbed my attention and never quite let go. The story and characters are gripping, with both coming of age and adult/mature themes:-

This ballet series produced by MAPPA is odd but great.
But it's difficult to recommend this to anyone. This series is not for everyone.
But there are definitely people who should watch it. Are you one of them, or are you not?

Simply - whether you will enjoy this series comes down to whether you "appreciate art". Classical art? Maybe? It definitely helps but it’s not a requirement.
Ballet? Heck, I don't know anything about ballet yet I still loved this show.

So maybe the short and simple explanation seems vague and a bit lacking. But let's say you additionally appreciate the art of expression. In this show you ...
