THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Suddenly begins with chibi group.

Fierce battle with some grudge from that girl.

The training little by little is showing some good result.

With what the coach said, the girl shows some seriousness.

This ep. shows the girls' feelings of wanting to play basketball.

Blue hair girl didn't make it. The guy approved Tomoka for losing at one point, and everyone still training.

The woman changed, and nice that the aunt/cousin got well.

Everyone got a date with Subaru at the end. was... donno...

The loss was expected from the Original Source, still when it's animated I'm more awed at how close the game was.

Nice to see Tomoka in a maid outfit making a shot.

Hina got a very lucky shot.

Nice ending with Aoi giving Subaru another epic kick of misunderstandings,.

lol at Maho wanting to share her popsicle with Subaru.

10/10

Yeah if you want more details you should check out the manga.

Too bad that Saki didn't make a Buzzer Beat :( they were so close of winning.

Aoi still being jealous and the kick of Aoi was a bit hilarous.
Everyone seem to looks a bit different.

Maho cuter side while dating and trying share Ice cream.

Ending looks like everyone got a date.

I still don't find Aoi's overreactions funny in the least ... at least there won't be any more of them, neh?

Nice final episode, I suppose it was appropriate for the lolis to finally lose a match since they've been beating everyone since the series started. Subaru decides to stay on as the coach, so while he doesn't take advantage of Tomoka's offer yet I'm sure she'll be wearing that maido outfit for him in private soon enough ;) When girls your own age are as violently irrational as Aoi, who wouldn't prefer the sweetness of the lolis?

7/10, I enjoyed it for the loli fanservice and the ecchi jokes, but it got me to actually watch a sports anime for once. Considering I hate sports and sports anime, quite an accomplishment.

Exactly my thoughts.

Also, is it just me or did the animation quality drop this episode? atleast on a lot of frames...

nice Anime to watch .

Airi's face become different person during the match .Actually the art become unstable and out of fund(maybe) when the match almost finish .Anyway,the starting of the match has good animation and its nice to watch .

I lol when Subaru ignore Aoi when Tomoka mention that " I practice with someone taller than me everyday ". Subaru is a pro when handling those harem(including Aoi).

I think it was very odd how Tomoka made it conveniently under him when they all went in to force him into a massage. I do wish the anime continued though, it was a pretty interesting and amusing anime watching the girls train and overcoming their hardships playing Basketball. I also wish I would have gotten to see Subaru recreate his club at school and also alittle more SubaruxAoi.

They lost!!! Oh well.

7/10 It had a pretty interesting beginning, but I thought the moe loliness and fanservice were a bit too overused.

Thanks, person who gave me this on another site a long time ago, lol.

Oh gosh, where the heck was this show going? Where was my basketball? And what did I just sit through? ಠ_ಠ
I should have expected this, but I was naive enough to think that this was a -sniff- sports anime.
Well, whatever, pretty nice finale to end a pretty awkward show.

So, the epilogue time-skips into the near future, right? 'Cause Saki (with Subaru) in the /epilogue/ is taller than she was in the other episodes. Also, every other girl "matures" in their own sense.

Couldn't they have put up a "(Insert number here) Years Later..." after the gym scene?

Is she violently irrational or irrationally violent? That's what I want to know. But either way, probably half of her scenes in the series were that.

Pretty decent ending for the most part. It seemed a little rushed towards the 2nd half, but I somewhat ignored it.

I felt bad for Saki missing the shot since she's my favorite of the group, but I still like all of them.

Anyway, 8/10 for Ro-Kyu-Bu!

I'm wondering how the DVD sales will do? This will determine is another season is announced in the near future.

Ep 11 was decent, but this one was pretty good too. The match was surprisingly fun to watch, and I'm actually glad they lost. Like I said at the beginning of this anime, it's losing that'll motivate them to work more and to continue going forward. Not saying they should lose all the time though, just that it's a good way to keep in touch with reality. :)
Aoi has been growing on me these past two episodes. She's seen him tucking the girls in in episode 11 without doing anything, and now she goes back to misunderstanding and kicking? Meh. And of course the other girls don't even explain the situation, they go for the cake. Aoi does that too in the final sequence, when she watches Subaru in a jealous way, everything's good when there's cake. Sigh, cake and japanese girls, what a trope...

Other than that, I'm going to rate this a 6 or a 7. Too much raving about "my feelings in basketball" and "it's good to have fun" became quite irritating after a few episodes. I get this is a sports anime, but this was mostly a loli anime. ;3 RKB turned out being a very watchable show, though it has a lot of annoying little things that stop me from rating it higher.

A cute series. I enjoyed it, but I'm sad to see it end. Wouldn't mind seeing a second season too. I loved the characters and the plot was pretty good. And I love loli maids :3

I give it an 8/10.

Well and that's it for Ro-Kyu-Bu! At first I thought it would be the typical "last second win" match, but in the end they still lost. =(

Too bad for Aoi too, Subaru gives more attention to the team if you don't tell him your feelings, hehe. Overall a pretty enjoyable series, but nothing too special. 7/10.

10/10 for me.

Well... it was was to be expected that this would end with loose ends hanging everywhere. At least they finished with a lolilicious misunderstanding, so no hard feelings :-)

I'm ready for another season and also ready for a less censored BD version (I don't know for sure - I just hope ^^).

This exactly! Reminds me a bit of completing Saki without getting anything about mahjong. I guess us ecchi fans are the winners here, because the fan-service seems to have dominated the series all in all.

This match was v4 material, but there was some skipping around with episode 9, as the beach episode and Kagetsu were all v5 material.

I think they're up to v8.

Great show....I don't know why but I really liked it.

7/10

Just wondering, did they ever play the school tournament? Did I forget about it, or did they just only talk about doing it but never actually DO it?

They wanted to, but their team is only 5 members, and apparently it would violate the spirit of their team to try and recruit a bench. That and the harem would grow unsustainably large ... does Subaru even HAVE a job to support that many girlfriends?

But anyway, nah, no school tournament for them. Maybe a second season will introduce a second 5 so they can really play in tournaments, and the girls can learn about sharing playing time n stuff.

This was a great ending, best episode of this series that totally redeemed it for me. Last couple episodes had me /facepalm multiple times with random awkward stuff going on. But not this one, it was great and I loved it. Upped it from a 7 to 8/10.

That game was pretty intense, and those flashbacks and stuff made it really dramatic. I knew they were going to come down to the last moment and lost but it was an epic lost. Everyone had their moment in the game which I thought was great. :o Thought it was going to come down to Tomoka tho. Oh and I liked Miu, she's actually very nice.

Aoi mega kick is ftw. And Hinata is definitely the best loli in this show.

though distributing screen time and attention may be a pain... and any new recruit may mean one of the main cast will drop down to bench...

It was a nice change seeing the main characters lose the last match, quite refreshing and realistic. Abundant flags for Tomoka was also enjoyable. Could have done without the Aoi kick. 4/5.

I don't even remember why I started watching this. I think it was Hanazawa. Anyways, not the worst way of spending 23 minutes every week. 6/10.

Same for me, I hate dropped frames, also that was a good ending, even though they didn't win, well, no more lolis from now on, at least not from a basketball team.

Decent 7/10. Good story and of course, lolis.
