Great set up for an awesome story but the writing and direction was horrible. It felt like Suguru didn't even exist after his accident. Seven being in the story was irrelevant other than they were childhood friends. It felt like Kakeru was more devastated when Seven moved away than his older brother dying... I don't know. I guess I was expecting something like Mitsuru Adachi's work but meh. Hope the soccer parts are good as Giant Killing but I'm not expecting that much from this show now.

I agree. Depending on the series, it's usually fun to make fun of these types of mistakes (Guilty Crown) but i had expected better from Area no Kishi. I was really excited to be blogging this one, but judging from the manga readers' opinions i may decide to drop it completely if the animation staff is adding different things and taking out valuable scenes.
I honestly don't think the anime is going to sell well (sports animes except Oofuri never sell well) and i read on AnimeSuki that the tv ratings for the show are horrible, like 0.3 or something close to that. So i guess the only real reason for this series would be to expand the manga readership.
Meh, oh well i'll give it two more episodes before i'll drop it from blogging (i'll still watch..maybe).

I tought that suguru would be in a chairwheel or else, not dead.. How awfull it would be to always be compare to his brother and more than this, you live because of his heart...
Yeah I thought he would just be crippled or something, was shocked he died.

Dear idiots(sorry but you deserve it) the guy isn't taken over by his brother, his just having cellular memory influence.
This phenomenon is not some crazy anime bullshit at all. Get some general knowledge before you play smart-asses.
Anyway the episode was decent but i felt that the director failed to show the drama as good as he could, as others said the director failed at creating any atmosphere. Also the animation really seemed bad.

That doctor seriously had a screw loose, slapping a patient and asking Seven if the heart that was beating faster was Suguru or Kakuru.
I can understand him not wanting to play football any more, but that doesn't mean he isn't running away.
Not sure how he even saw the car that was about to hit the child with all those tall hedges nor how he was able to ascertain that the driver hadn't already seen the girl before causing the driver to lose control of the car.
