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 (20/24 eps)
First of all, I don't think anyone who hasn't seen even half of the anime should even review it. I admit I was kind of indignant seeing "not recommended" and the person has seen 4/5 episodes of a 25-episode anime!

Second, THIS ANIME IS PERFECT! I think it's literally the most natural anime I've ever seen, their reactions are extremely realistic and you can clearly see how each character is in their own unique way. The colors are beautiful and nice to look at, the animation is also fluid enough. I think especially the expressions and the small details, help to make up the personality of ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (4/24 eps)
I would be lying if I said this was a hidden gem or anything special at all. Love All Play is a pretty fun Badminton anime, that actually just discusses playing badminton at a somewhat competitive high school level. For a badminton fan like myself, this is actually quite special, considering the alternatives are the melodramatic Hanebado, and the utterly boring office/badminton Ryman's club.

The characters are quite charming and have fun, wholesome relationships with one another. There's some drama going on in the background with our edgy boi Matsuda, and Mizushima is clearly going to have some special awesome observation powers or whatever, but ...

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 ...
