See, I thought that too, but in the first episode they have Yagami drooling over Sakurai. Maybe they will bring more attention to that in the next season. If not, still a great sport's anime.

I'm confused about this anime. Although the story line and art style was great, I am very confused about what genre it is suppose to be in. I know for sure that it is a sports anime, but on other websites it is stated as being a reverse harem. So,is it both? Because if it was suppose to be a reverse harem, it sucked at demonstrating that; if was only a sport's one, then it was awesome. If that is clarified, then that would be awesome. Also, if it is a reverse harem, will there be more of that aspect in the second season?

The anime is based from a reverse-harem otome game, but I think that the anime isn't.

I'll watch it anyway, it's interesting. I've seen comments on Facebook, some people connect it with parkour, or what we saw from latest PV https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HqZIIe7tLNA

Opinions?

Hmm. I've heard rumors that the anime might make Yagami Riku (one of the guys) the protagonist. I read a game summary recently and it seems Nana, the girl in the otome is somewhat like a manager, and she doesn't really run in the games.

Is this true?

I'm fine with either way. If they make this a full sports anime, cool. A sports anime with otome elements, cool.

Had to laugh at the announcement because someone predicted GalaSta doing the ED only a few hours earlier. XD

For (supposedly) putting this much time and effort into this project, the chara designs have ended up pretty half-heartedly... Admittedly, I didn't notice it too much until I had reached Heath's part, then scrolled upwards and noticed that actually there was not much of a difference in quality, haha.
Well, I hope the animation will be more stable at the very least, then.

was all hype seeing sports plus Madhouse...almost all killed by the otome game part,ah well hopefully sports play a bigger role

I'm hoping for a mixed gender sports aspect, like Chihayafuru. That stuff kills my kokoro in a good way.
