Synopsis

Robato Hatohara is a serious, inflexible, and clueless first-year student at Eiai Academy. His lack of expression and social awareness combined with robotic mannerisms have earned him the nickname "Robo." The only person who enjoys talking to him is Tomoya Nakata—his lone friend and member of the school's golf club. Nakata has tried to recruit Hatohara into the club on several occasions, but failed due to the other's complete disinterest in the sport.

While out at a driving range together, Hatohara hits a shot as straight as a laser beam using Nakata's finicky golf club, achieving a hole-in-one. This stuns his friend as well as Youzan Miura—an up-and-coming young professional golfer whose swing style has earned him the nickname "Samurai." Following a brief case of mistaken identity, Miura and Hatohara find themselves playing against each other, upon which the former learns that the latter is a complete amateur who has no desire to play golf.

Impressed by his opponent's innate talent, Miura requests that Hatohara reach his level and challenge him. With a newfound goal to strive for, the deadpan Hatohara sets off to secure a regular position on Eiai's golf team, in hope of teeing off against his rival again.

If you ever read or watched any Ganbatte type of anime or manga, this fills all the tropes while bringing only a bit new on the table.

Main characters can lose a battle and its always exciting to know more about a different type of sport. Robot x Laserbeam had certainly some flaws but it had a good premise to offer.

It stats off that the main character Robato is basically an autist who is constantly ...

I honestly just picked this up since it got recommended to me on the Jump+ app and I was a fan of the original Kuroko manga to give it a shot. I had no expectations and I felt disappointed by the end of it.

Story and Art: Robot x Laserbeam has a pretty typical sports manga setup (protag is somehow really good at the sport but doesn't care much for it, meets a rival who ignites his passion for said sport). The setup really allowed for this series to continue for longer than the 62 chapters it got, but WSJ is a brutal periodical ...
