Oo 2 badmintonSS for next year? Very interesting though the synopsis here may sound bland but the trailer may prove it wrong and it's an adult cast + badminton = hype and it's rare to see an adult cast playing sport while also focusing on their adulthood so cool that there's more content but a bit worried if they don't take badminton competitively or otherwise it'll make no sense as if they're doing badminton for nothing and even if it's for fun, it would roughly be nothing special to keep this series an eye on so they really should focus more towards to the sport and just add their adulthood as a side content :). Also badminton is probably one of my favorite sport ever because I personally enjoy banging with the racket jkjk, also it's very enjoyable to see a intense round of a badminton match, so I'm looking forward to this sport anime <3

Another sports anime but hidden fujobait. Not good staff but will watch because its a sports genre, which has some nice stories out there

Yay and adult cast! Main reason I'm watching it as we rarely see adult cast as the sports protagonists (last I remember was the samurai gymnastics one) Also badminton! I used to play it in high school.

Oh yay for adult cast. At least this means it should be less cookie cutter.

The synopsis sounds cliche and bland but it's BADMINTON.


SO, I'm watching it! XD

I’m not into sports anime but since it has shinmiki in it I might watch it.

Japan is truly turning every sport known to man into an anime now lol

But this is already seeming like a unique sports anime considering that the cast are all adults/businessmen so this should be interesting

Looks okay, I do like that they’re older. I’ll give it a try. :)

Huh, it didn't take much effort.

No two things make me less enthusiastic than sports and office work, both in media and reality. Avoiding this one.

So now we have 2 badminton anime shows for next year. That's pretty nice!

Oct 21, 1:24 AM by OziPJ

Its a Anime original (most of those kind turn into a bl bait which hardly focus on sports itself). I will keep my expectation low, I guess.

Oct 21, 1:20 AM by Adampk

OOO a sports anime where the characters are working adults..? AND its badminton?!!!?! definitely looking forward to this a lot !!!!

Oct 21, 1:02 AM by lizzziziz

Seems interesting. I'll watch it depending on how it's received.

Oct 21, 12:44 AM by TitanInsane

Seems interesting! I haven't seen a lot sports anime set in a university, let alone one that's post-school life, so this looks pretty cool.

Oct 21, 12:40 AM by Maumuu

Omg it sounds great! I usually don’t watch sports anime but here we go!!
And yes finally some non-teenage characters. As a 22 year old, I’d like to see more content like that. I finally can relate :D

Winter 2022 is going to be amazing I think. There are already so many shows that I want to watch, I’m excited!
