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.

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 ...

~ Spoiler free:

Love All Play is an anime that fails in telling a compelling story and portrays badminton without conveying the qualities that make it a great sport. The animation, while wasn't expected to be anything great, manages to make glaring mistakes to someone who plays badminton and makes the sport feel sluggish, accompanied by a plot that is just plain wrong about badminton. Character "development" only occurs in characters realising they're just have to believe in themselves without exploring anything meaningful which further disregards the fundamentals of badminton as a sport. The main cast of characters are merely cliché "personalities" that appear uninteresting and ...

Mixed Feelings
this is the first anime which focuses on badminton that i have watched. however i have mixed feeling about it. in general, i don’t think the anime is terrible but i do think the execution just feels very rush and some things are pretty repetitive.

another thing is the competition ...
