It usually takes me 1-2 days to finish a 24 episode anime. It took me 1 week to finish this anime. Ima give my opinion on what I thought of this anime.

I always like to begin with art first for my reviews since that is usually what I judge it on when I watch a series.

Art: It was GREAT until..........episode 10 and up. I don't know if it was just me or what, but the "basquash" and the ball bouncing got much slower and boring, the graphics got worse as it went on, and there were inconsistency in the drawings. I don't know if they read more

This is my first review, and as much as I will try to stay biased for the reader, I can only write with the mood I am feeling at the time I was watching the episodes.

Basquash:
Well what can I say? What started as a brilliant roller-coaster formula to an inventive sports recipe of basketball, ended up collapsing midway and failing to meet the viewers expectation to what could have been a great shonén series.

Story: 5/10
I've given the story side of Basquash a 5 due to that, there is none. It's your typical shonén anime with sports and mecha(called Big Foots) combined to give you read more

So, I'm re-writing this review because I've finished the series.

From the moment you start the first episode you should fall in love with this show. The animation is enough to pull anybody in. Now, most people who dislike this anime are those who watched the first episode and hated the second. The second episode obviously can't compare to the first, but as the series progresses the first episode doesn't even matter anymore.

"If you're looking for a deep story, I admit there are a lot of anime with a better plot. Basquash's plot is somewhat simple, Young boy has ambitions, shares ambitions with sister, sister gets read more

The idea of the whole anime may sound ridiculous, but it is exactly the fact that they managed to recreate it in an interesting way that makes the series really intriguing. How many people would watch this after a describtion such as this one: "Guys playing basketball in giant robots; sometimes in THE SPACE." I doubt there would be many anticipating to watch something like that. But what never ceased to amaze me throughout the whole series was that I didn't even once feel like I was watching something dumb and not well-thought. An idea that seems stupid, stereotypical and clichè may actually surprise you read more
