I doubt it will have the same great animation and direction as Free, but I'm already a little curious about what it ends up with. Especially considering that the "showrunner" is a man.

I checked the character cast, and it seems there is one, literally one female character in it .. i hope the VA won't receive death threats as it is custom with shows like these for being "in the way".

Would watch this if only this were about battle fantasy or fighting to the death type of anime.

It has a female character that has a connection to the MC so most probably a side love interest outside of story plot right there so not a BL, you can safely watch it if BL bothers you that much.

haha waterpolo! These niche sports will never run out. Fieldhockey, luge, nordic combined, triple jump, handball, weightlifting....

But this season's show about kabaddi has to be the nichest of the niche sports.

Basically Sk8 but now water polo. I do like that this is the first original water polo anime if I'm not mistaken.

These team sports shows are never BL, so I don't know why you're bringing it up. Do you worry every show featuring attractive guys is BL?

He did lol, female characters are a stable in sport anime/these types of shows. Most of them are liked, even.

Its mostly on Japanese twitter, you wont find any here, people from western fandoms barely know something like that is happening only if it blows up to ridiculous proportions like with the Tokyo Ghoul.

Another Bishounen sport to capitalize on Tokyo Olympics I see.

It's like Kuroko no Basket but water polo and not BL levels of Free! (I hope).

I'm a sucker for seasonal sports anime. I hope they nail the animation because I have high expectations for MAPPA-animated sports anime, especially after seeing Yuri on Ice. It's also an anime original, so I'll keep my expectations low. I'm excited nonetheless!

I love how this one is just seen as a harmless, probably fujobait, anime, while the other one (Yas*k*) is perceived as a blatant attempt of americanizing the Japanese anime industry.

I will pray that it’s BL just to piss of ignorant homophobic straight guys like you! Stop making all straight men look bad. Also you literally watched LOVE STAGE which is a BL you dumb?

Why are you getting triggered , I just don't want this anime to be like free that's all , I have no ill intention whatsoever ,

Yaa I have see love stage , it might be my 5th or 6th anime in general , at that time I use to complete every anime which I start watching , Love stage looked more like a rom com between a boy and a girl , the mc was literally a girl with no boobi and with a pp just like Ruka from stains gate

If a Ruka spin off romance anime comes out I will definitely watch it , see I am not a homophobic at all ,

Looks like it will be bl, so it will be unwatchable for me. Enjoy everyone else, I am out.
