Uninspired character design and queerbaiting as opposed to actual representation..

Queerbaiting? Just because yaoi fangirls ship sports anime characters together doesn't mean it was the author's intention to make them gay lovers instead of just close friends.

Watch Junjou Romantica if you're going to complain about "queerbaiting"

Right?

That's what i thought when i watched 2.43: Seiin Koukou Danshi Volley-bu's trailer and visuals..

And now here we are..

Well.. no. But as an aside, i have to say, sometimes Japanese anime producers have this uncanny knack of taking a queer-dominated or well-represented field and then pretend they don't exist within it..

They've revealed 12 characters so far. Take your pick..

That's not queerbaiting..

@this_shit_again Well, agree to disagree I guess. I'm somewhat excited for this show, but I'm not expecting any actual gay characters at all realistically, so "queerbaiting" is probably a given. I just ship characters anyways regardless of canon

But, in any case, hopefully the show will be good. It kinda reminds me of Haikyuu!

Another anime about gymnastics like Taisou Zamurai but this one is giving more number24 vibes.

I'm just happy Centimillimental is performing for another anime. First Given and now this, they are perfect for anime with bromance XD

Well it's great that you can make a buffet out of anything they give you.. Even if it's nothing..

But i ain't settling for scraps.. And i'm not going to pretend there's something when there isn't..
