THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
That afro guy never ceases to amuse me. BROCCOLI

We got some bromance and Breakers with their usual routines. I really wish pacing picks up more though and get into more of the competitive scenes soon. The training montage though. At least Hiashi is back with the team.

A decent episode. Had some funny moments and a bit of drama.
Some good development overall, and hopefully we can see some cheer routines next episode.

Thank God the conflict is only in the 1st half of the episode. Despite the conflict is the same as last week but it really feels a bad taste in the mouth. It's great to see all of them finally get serious in practicing and Hisashi breaks from his past self. And just like any other week Sho's taste for clothing still remains the same that I just wanted to hire a clothes stylist for him (lol)

I agree the conflict is kinda dragging out. Hoping it's over and a story can progress, maybe some more routines.
Aside from the montage there hasn't been a lot of technique being shown (/animated) like there was with the learning of flip stunts.
Over all still enjoying watching through the week.

Knew it, Hisashi is the hardest worker out of all and a likable one at that who was just very happy to see a new cheerleading team forming.

I did not see his ''broccoli'' coming, amazing scene tbh.

"I'm not your girlfriend." Sure Haru, whatever you say.

Good for Hisashi. He's hardworking but very strict so it ends up in a lot of misunderstandings.

HAhahaha I knew that line would get comments :p! It's like a bait for fangirls of Kazu x haru

My thoughts are :

-Why the hell does everybody's muscles get twice the size when they dont have clothes on?

-Hearing Hisashi's thoughts on each member of the team was cute

-I totaly didn't get who were the 2 man in suits at first

-Sho.... damn it you reached a new summit in awkward fashion sens

-Damn I love that show! It just put a smile on my face :D!

Ando's imitation cracked me up, lmao. It was on point! Hisashi's part got me all teary-eyed though. I was like, "Awww, so that's how he is." Such a passionate guy. :3 His 'broccoli' was kinda awkward. XD I think my fave part of this ep was when Tono said, "he's been watching everyone closely" to the bridge scene (if that's even a bridge, lol). It was too much for my heart. So excited for the next one!

Hi Hi !!
I wonder if Kazu's grandmother's condition is getting worse. Maybe she has Alzheimer's, is what I was thinking.
Btw,
Does anyone know what this song is ?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LF_tfhpZfdQ

I know it's probably the same group that did the opening but I don't think it's the same song,,, right ?
Somehow, just from hearing that little part, it got stuck in my head and I feel like I'll go crazy lol.

I roflmao'ed so freaking hard on that.
---
Hisashi is my sister or vise versa. Well, they are the same actually.
Alike Hisashi, sis was always coming frustrated that whenever she played basketball with her classmates, they were taking the game half-heartedly; basically too lazy to play; they're looking down on the sport itself. Just like Hisashi's annoyed by his cheermates not taking the practice seriously. Now, if you gonna aim higher, to nationals, I mean put yourself together. You must work hard, not play toys, right?

Either way, Hisashi is amazing despite his sharp attitude. He pointed out the flaws of each memeber and still knows what each needs to make it up for it. Imo, he could make a better captain than Kazu; but Kazu has the cheering up voice, can get everyone pumped up. Hisashi seems more like a right hand; on a same level as Sho; just that Sho was a bit coward until yesterday; Hisashi is unyielding idividual.

I was hoping the broccoli guy was the one to quit. It seemed like they will start to get serious now though. At least that's good.

What's with Kazu granny though? Will she make it to the end of the series? :(
I am under the impression that she is the only blood family he has.

Thank you, this song is really nice. I was wondering about it myself, since it's been stuck in my head.

This show is actually really nice, especially last couple of episodes. I thought it would be generic at first, but it actually has some really good character development of its really large cast. Many of them are very distinctive and interesting.

I just hope this won't be another anime like "Yeah.. I'm going to hospital because someone from my family is sick," and then it turns out that the person himself is sick. Please. I really don't want that with Kazu.

The episode itself was really good. The Broccoli from Hisashi killed me :D



I don't give a meow about what others think.

Annnnnnnnd... I'm officially done with this anime.

Cheer Danshi started out strong but the quality, IMHO, has dropped considerably over the past few weeks.

lol Sho's leopard yellow-pink outfit, too op.
Tired of broccoli, annoyed of Hisashi. Ok backstory tho, but not excuse to force his own opinions, be a bad sport, act like a leader when it's the job of Kazu & Coach. Good the team chose more challenging stunts, but he needs to keep his tryhard to himself. His observations of the team, filtered thru Ton are actually quite insightful, it's his attitude problem. We see him 'break', but it didn't really show his regret/change of heart, as if he's been right and the whole team's wrong.
Peer pressure, great way to get him back in the team.

Kin and Takuya look so different in their suits and normal hair color. They look good.

I feel sorry for Hisashi now. I used to think he was serious and I still think he is but I understand now why he was harsh on the others. He wanted to go to Yomei but failed. His hopes were rekindled when he found out their school had a Cheerleading team for men and he got pumped. I think it's awesome how they were able to settle their differences.

Maybe in the future, Kin can open his own restaurant. Also, I hope they show us Ton's girlfriend soon. I really want to see her.

OMG same.
There is no such thing as an Anime elitist. You watch Anime, therefore, you are trash by society's standards.

Good to see Hisashi get along with all the team I laughed when he did the Brocoli joke xD

Haru needs to do something for Kazu, his grand-mother has a problem.

Ando and Hisashi were cute in this episode, and I liked the way the conflict was resolved. BROCCOLI<3

This show is starting to bore me though, it started off strong but it feels like the plot is kind of floundering now and the conflicts they've introduced so far don't really feel significant. On the other hand, I feel like this is a very realistic show compared to some other sports anime, especially for a team that's so new, we can't expect them to be competing at a high level just yet, but endless training montages aren't that interesting, and we don't know much about most of the team members yet to get invested in them (I can't tell half of them apart either).

Yay~~ !
I had to dig it out,but Thank God I found it :D
it's Track No.(17. Cheer to the sky) from the CD2 of the original soundtrack of the anime.
I'm really glad they included it there (^O^)/
( along with their debut song ,which its title is "LOUDER & HARDER feat. Paul Drew" by the way *starry eyes*)
you can download the complete OST Here
it's not 100% confirmed that "Luck Life" (same band that sang the opening song "Hajime no Ippo" ) are the ones who performed this insert song,however I really think they are.
it totally sounds like them..

I'm very glad that Hisashi and Takeru could finally get along, of course with the help of their teammates. Now, they can focus in their techniques to improve them even more so they can go to the competition.

GO, FIGHT, WIN! LET'S GO BROCOLI! xD
