We finally get a hockey anime, and it ends up being CGDCT trash. What a waste.

But it will be watched by a bunch of shippers and simps who, due to this, will call themselves fans of sports anime. You know, because they love sports girls, lol.

Cute girls playing hockey, it should be good. I don’t know how bang dream’s designs going to fit the hockey theme but they look good.

Is that you Chika? The orange haired girl in the middle reminds me of Chika from Love Live Sunshine.
With Bang Dream’s character design team, no wonder why characters are look so familiar.

Using Nikko as a setting. I hope that the animator team will show us a lot of places inside the city because Nikko is very beautiful city and interesting place to visit.
