The happy-go-lucky Michi Sonoda announces to her teammate, Sanae Takigawa, that she will quit judo for good after her final middle school tournament. This leaves Sanae in disbelief; after all, it was Michi's passion toward the sport that reeled Sanae into judo in the first place. Michi claims that a well-spent youth should be associated with things such as getting a boyfriend rather than sweaty tatami mats.

However, Michi's plan to end her fledgling judo career with a bang is spoiled after experiencing an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the talented Towa Hiura. Later, her plan is further derailed when she finds out that Towa has enrolled in the same high school as herself and Sanae. With the sudden appearance of her past foe, Michi may soon realize that she still has lingering feelings for the sport of judo.

This series deserves a MUCH HIGHER SCORE than its current 6.7-ish.

Mou Ippon contains a realistic depiction of high school girls playing a niche sport. Perhaps the niche nature of the series accounts for the low score; sad if so, because the judo moments are fantastic. I know absolutely nothing about martial arts but I am nevertheless RIVETED. This has all the necessary story beats to qualify as a wonderful sports anime in its own right.

If you're put off by the age or gender of the protagonists... don't be. Give Mou Ippon a shot anyway. The depiction of the sport is great, but it's the series' ...

If anyone would told me that this anime would have be one of my favorites of the season, I would have laughed at them. I had it on the list to check but every time I would open it early on to watch I would just close it and say "I'm just not feeling it." Finally got around to sitting down to watch it and next thing you know I was at episode 8.

Story: Would say the characters are the story. It's a simple story of girls doing judo and their development as both judo players and people as the story ...

I just finished episode 11 and I can’t believe how excited I am for the next episode! I did not expect this from this anime!

When I first started watching this series, I was like “ok it’s like a light, slice of life, comedy , CGDCT with a hint of sports, looks fun “ and that’s how it was for the first few episodes.

But i was wrong, one night 2am in the morning I wanted to put on an episode of something relaxing to help me sleep so I put this on and I ended up binge watching like 5 or 6 episodes and ...
