Trying to move on in his life, former professional golfer Kazuyoshi Igarashi arrives at Hinoshima Island for a job at its development center. Expecting the island to be a very rural area with nothing much to offer, Kazuyoshi cannot hide his amazement when he discovers a complete golf course made by the island's inhabitants. Using the seaside terrain to their advantage, the people there have adopted golfing as their hobby.

To add to his surprise, Kazuyoshi meets a young girl named Tonbo Ooi, who has been playing golf using only a 3-iron—a notoriously difficult-to-use club. As the former pro gets more involved with Tonbo and witnesses her seemingly impossible shots, he begins to see golf in a whole new light, rediscovering how fun the sport can actually be.

It is a real shame that so many people seem to be missing this particular show this season. A shame, though not surprising.

No, what Tonbo is about is rather "Wasted Potential," which I would call a far more interesting focus for a sports anime to have than average.

As the plot synopsis for the show describes, Tonbo is ...

I've never seen a show this focused on "the journey to the starting line" before but its a really resonant theme. Tonbo and Igarashi's growth is a slow burn, it takes time for these characters to adjust and leave their comfort zone but there's a real sense of excitement to see how the characters will develop not just in golfing skills but their mentalities and approaches to both golf and life.

It's a show heavy on set-up which vastly improves on the early source material to allow these brilliantly written characters to be explored one piece at a time.

Character's struggles feel grounded and enthralling. The ...

Why I'm watching this anime?
Even thought when I started watching it I was sure I was going to drop it in a matter of two or three episodes, I'm still waiting every week for the next one to come out. And not only for the same old "Slam Dunk paradox": "even though I didn't care at all about (name of the sport), I loved this manga/anime"; but because of something quite unique that I was able to see in this series.

Tonbo, the main character, doesn't need to follow the boring and repetitive path of the classic spokon protagonist who has to get better ...
