In junior high, Ryou Mizushima and his friends join the badminton club on a whim. As he grows fond of the sport, Ryou works tirelessly to improve his badminton skills until he qualifies in the prefectural tournament. Lacking a coach who can bring out his full potential, he does not consider entering a high school with a strong badminton team. Instead, he plans on attending a local high school where he can play badminton for fun.

However, Ryou's perspective changes when Yokohama Minato High School's badminton coach scouts him. Not only does the institution have one of the strongest badminton teams in the region, but it also has Kento Yusa, a player Ryou admires. Though hesitant at first, Ryou decides to enroll with the support of his sister. Possessing a firm ambition, he begins to gain experience with the proper guidance of a coach—all in hopes of surpassing Yusa one day.

Preliminary (12/24 eps)
Here is my review of this anime in 2022!

Story (9)
The story is about a high school student who has a passion for badminton. Their target is to win an international competition and pursue a great opponent to build up their strength and become top. It quite interesting to see the progress of the main character from weak to strong till the end of the episode.

Art (9)
The art in this anime is very good. I love how they make the animation of smashing and perspective when the badminton match begins especially at end of the episode.

Sound (9)
All the sounds that they used are suitable and adjusted ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (22/24 eps)
This Anime's story is good. But animation is so bad. Maybe staff must learn form the same badminton anime in last winter season Ryman's club. Also the phase is too fast. During the match, this anime does not bring the audience's feelings such as upset, tense like anime Haikyuu. I think the staff must learn from Haikyuu. How make audience's feeling tense, upset, want watch next episode during the match. I think the staff worked this anime not too serious for this anime. That's why this anime like this. very regretted this anime have good story. but another things like animation, phase is so bad.

Love All, No Play. Piss off.

To wait more than a decade for a relatively unknown and underground work to get adapted, I really question who was in the right mind to green-light this project, given that there were already better alternatives like Liden Films's repertoire of badminton anime. This is novelist Asami Koseki's only work that was in Poplar Publishing (which publishes very old kids IPs from the 90s to the late 2000s) that was seralized from 2011 to 2014, and I'm just gonna assume that the sales figures for this were decent to OK (since it's "big" enough to get an anime adaptation), or ...
