Hiyori Hayama is an aspiring singer who moved to Tokyo to make her debut. She has always loved singing and hopes to stand on stage like her favorite artist. Unfortunately, the entertainment industry is not all fun and games, as she fails her auditions one after another and struggles to sell her songs.

Finding herself still standing at the start line, Hiyori pursues her only opportunity to take the next step forward—partaking in Extreme Hearts. The popular event is a Hyper Sports tournament where participants compete in various sports using ability-enhancing gear for a chance to make their big break. Despite being athletic, however, Hiyori's lack of familiarity with Hyper Sports poses a problem for her. Fortunately, she befriends girls experienced in different sports, and they join the tournament alongside Hiyori, hoping to see her rise to the top.

Now playing under Team RISE, Hiyori and her teammates learn about the unspoken rule of Extreme Hearts—all competitors must be entertainers or aspire to be one. For the members of Team RISE, facing the competition head-on is an inspiring endeavor that paves the way to discovering newfound interests and everlasting friendships.

Extreme Hearts was released on Blu-ray in Japan from October 26, 2022 to December 21, 2022.

An original, very diverse anime, a mix of sports, singing, dancing, show business, Idols, and Kawaii girls.
Football, basketball, baseball, volleyball, tournaments.
The intervention of very advanced technology throughout history.
Robots (AI), and the use of gravity shoes, allowing the people who wear them to influence the surrounding gravity, so as to be able to greatly strengthen their physical abilities (jumps, sprints, throwing, receiving, kicking , or punch).
All in color.
Beautiful girls, and beautiful songs sung.

The characters whose daily lives we will follow are all girls.
Despite everything, it's very pleasant to watch.
The settings aren't perfect, but the story, and seeing girls in the foreground more than makes up for ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
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.

Story and characters: 5
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 ...

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 ...
