Synopsis

Kaboku Kotani is starting high school, and he plans to do what he's always done: go along with his friends, keep quiet, and not draw too much attention to himself. After all, it's hard enough to get by with a stutter like his—why make things worse by standing out from the crowd? But then he sees another first-year, Hikari Wanda, dancing like no one is watching—or like she doesn't care who sees her. It makes Kaboku wonder: Could he reach that same freedom? To find his way to Wanda, he does something he never thought he could: He joins the dance club. After all, every routine begins with a single step, right? Join Kaboku and Wanda as they freestyle their way to life and love!

Preliminary (6/? eps)
10/10 in terms of how this conveys the emotions and cool factor of dancing. Other reviewers have talked about this a lot already, and this effect is even greater if you can relate to the main character.

Preliminary (41/? eps)
A manga that excels at showing the "energy" of dancing, and the emotions that is mixed in a whole different way of reading a manga.

Story: 7.5
It's simplistic and you could get the whole gist of the manga by the synopsis. It's good enough for you to understand, and is more focused on other things. It does well with world-building and explaining different parts of dancing.
But by being "simple", the story feels comprehensible in the way it's structured, making you follow along easily with not only the simple plot points but the explanations and exposition, able to focus on different parts to what makes this manga ...

Preliminary (35/? eps)
Aside from sounding like a Drake song, Wondance is a criminally underrated series that I didn't expect to be so "not popular", per se.

(Yes there is a TL;DR)

The premise is essentially about a guy with anxiety and stuttering who becomes invested in dancing because as the book states "you don't need words to express yourself" (or something along those lines). Story progresses about how you would expect.

The book itself handles these issues and traits of the main character very well--as someone with social anxiety (and I'm sure a lot of you guys as well), seeing an MC in any entertainment medium with anxiety usually results ...
