Extreme Farts.

Trying to explain the plot of “Extreme Hearts” to a person with functioning brain cells is like trying to run across the ocean which now that I think on it, is probably something a character in this show could actually do thanks to the sci-fi, cybernetic sports gear that enhances a persons ability to do sports… somehow.
If I told you that aspiring idol groups compete in an extreme, ‘hyper’ sports tournament for a chance to get their big, music career defining break, you might ask the question, “But why? How are those two things connected?”
The answer is; They’re not. Don’t think about it. ...

It's hard to grasp what Extreme Hearts is based on synopsis alone. It's not a sports anime. Nor is it an idol anime. And even with Sci-Fi elements, it's not a typical Sci-Fi series. And it's certainly not somewhere in between those three. This series is best described as a journey about challenging oneself and staying true to your own goals. It's about relating to others, forging new friendships, and it does so with brimming positivity, and a diverse cast of well-thought-out characters.

The story begins with Hiyori, an already debuted singer/songwriter with an extremely small following, and her kouhai, Saki. When Hiyori's contract is terminated, ...

Extreme Piss, the Queens (or rather, Princesses) of Hearts of a formula already done before, but that it is also subpar. People just don't learn, that's the hard-and-fast rule and unfathomable truth.

As I would like to call it, the now famous Uma Musume formula of involving sports and idoling, CGDCT style, it certainly has seen a major success incorporating such a genre that back then, didn't have a lot of competition. And CyGames definitely took advantage of that formula by being the first anime adaptation of their popular mobage game to do so, such that it was the precedent going forward. And many similar other ...

You've seen sports anime about teens who were new to the game, and you've seen idol anime about struggling idols. But have you ever seen an anime about an entire tournament of people who are bad at BOTH?

Because that's the concept of Extreme Hearts, both the anime and in-universe tournament. Our MC is a failed idol who joins a league of potential idol athletes where the common goal is to use the tournament's notoriety to go pro. Their world has pro athletes and pro idols without combining the two and adding weird unexplained technology, it seems like all players here NEED this tournament of losers ...

I’ve seen quite a lot of idol-related anime, and Extreme hearts was another good addition to the genre. I really do like the merging of sports and idols, and there are quite a handful of anime series that have done exactly that, from Pride of Orange, or Uma Musume Pretty Derby, where musical performances after a sporting event is done and it's still uncommon in that theme.

I am going to be real with you, if you’re not that type of viewer with a solid interest of those genres then you should look elsewhere, I tend to notice a lot of reactions are on the negatives ...

I want to be clear as I write this review, that I do not think Extreme hearts is a bad show, more that it's not a good either. Not that it can't be enjoyed, but if you were to call anything mid, or low mid, it would be Extreme Hearts.

You'd be foolish to think this was purely a sports kind of anime, when it's more a mix of that, and a idol like anime. Which is a very interesting combo, and I'd honestly say, the flashy moves during the first two episodes, do remind me of Galactic Football a bit. But a ...
