I didn't even remember seeing this one before but it's already in my PTW so yes.

The entry used to "new" Tegami Bachi, because some assumed "a new project with Tegami Bachi's artist" meant a new Tegami Bachi anime. You probably had that entry in your PTW, but the entry has been changed to this :)

this looks like so much fun
the music and the ridiculous whimsical pastel palette alone are getting me pumped for this!
it's neat that it's set at a university too, nice to see a departure from a high school setting!

If it was actual gymnastics this might have been interesting. But cheerleading? that 'sport' makes me cringe, thanks to America.

I'm surprised that they aren't bishies, the artsyle is pretty close to Haikyuu. I'll give it 2 episodes.

This looks adorable ^O^ But i wonder how far they can take the excitement of the match since they're not actually participating.. (okay they're cheering but still)
Unless it'll be more about friendship and stuff rather than sports :D
It'll be fun watching them learn how to flip somersaults or whatever it is that cheerleaders do though! :P


Don't cheer teams do competitions though? There's the cheerleaders that will cheer at sporting events and there are also the people in cheer who do it competitively. It will probably be something like that?
