I like it's a new (fictional) form of team figure skating, everyone is pretty!

Wow, it's nice that he's containing his singing profession.

It sounds great and Ron is back composing more music/songs for sports.

Nojima brothers voicing brothers in the anime. - that's the only thing I noticed.

Edit:

Still needing time to decide if I want to watch it, though.

The concept doesn't appeal to me on paper, at least not particularly, but hey...I'll wait to see an episode or two before judging anything. Which is the reasonable approach, in my opinion.

I have REALLY low expectations.

Then again I'm completely skipping this...
