TEAROOM'S ACTIVE THREADS

ToG25thBaam Nov 15, 2016 7:25 PM
I feel like your review on Baby Steps is for those who actually liked the series, rather than trying to be helpful for those who haven't seen the series. I think you're trying too hard to look for flaws in the series.

"Yet, everyone seems to forget that Eichiro - as talented and as gifted as he may be - has only been playing tennis for so long. If you wish to thread the line of realism, it's impossible for him to beat people who have been playing tennis their whole lives. "

Maruo is hardly "gifted", he trains harder than anybody else to get up to tournament body condition, he even said it himself, that there's no way he could catch up to the vets if he doesn't try harder than most of them. Also, it's not like the physique of other guys keep padding up, for athletes, once they have a body type they're satisfied with, they work to maintain that form, not work to make their body even more bulky. I don't get how it's "impossible". Also, if you've actually seen the series, Maruo plays with strategy, he's been taking notes a lot, that's why once he has his body conditioning down, he is able to tango with the other top tier guys. On the other hand, since Maruo is new, his opponents don't really have much data on him that they could use.

"Story is slow paced. And I mean slow paced. It may not seem so at the beginning, but the longer you keep watching it, the more you realize that not many things are happening. Sure, it's not the slowest paced sports anime out there, but it's not the fastest either. This takes a huge, huge spike if you get into manga where 1 match can drag on for 20+ chapters which mostly consist of monologue - and the same case is with the anime itself."

I just started reading the manga right now, and each chapter felt so short, if I am not wrong, it's about 15 pages per chapter, give or take, right? A 20 chapters match shouldn't be a surprise then. If you're gonna complain about how it goes a bit into the details of the match, would you say you rather have wordless matches, or matches with a lot of "WOOORYAHHHH" scream or a lot of Prince of Tennis-ish matches? Every single match is important because they develop Maruo as a tennis player. You may not find it interesting but the pace is fine.

"During matches, audience is being fed exposition like no tomorrow. Main character literally explains everything that's going on as if everyone in the audience is a machine incapable of grasping a simple concept of "oh, he's trained for his whole life that's why he's better". Anime tries to shrug it off on his personality, as Eichiro is a rather anal person, but it's a large stretch and I often found myself skipping scenes as they literally recap what happened 2 minutes ago. This alone stagnates the story in a large way, and slows it down too much. Some people call it realism, but, what it actually is, is just dragging the shit out. Another weird part is that anime will sometimes have huge time skips (for three months as an example) so it makes me wonder why not just balance the pace. Such large contrasts in storytelling only serve to bring the overall quality down, and were the first signs, at least to me, that this won't be as fun of a ride as I had hoped. "

Again, I think your "dragging shit out" is more "I can't enjoy this" rather than it actually drags. Iirc time skip usually happens when Maruo has to prepare for a tournament therefore skipping his entire training segment. I am pretty sure 80% of the time Maruo was just gonna be locked in to his training, and nothing else.

Honestly I can't be bothered to reply to every single one of your "criticism", it's like you're criticising it for being a typical sports manga, and it seems like you have a problem with people calling Baby Steps a realistic sports manga, rathern than having an issue with the series itself.

I can't tell you how to write your review, you can write it however you want, but if you're trying to be helpful to the community, you should gather yourself before writing a review, try to at least be impartial and see the good and the bad. I may be wrong on this but your review seems heavily biased, they came off as more of a reply or a blog post for people who call it a realistic anime. Oh and, as realistic as manga can get, it is still a fictional story meant to entertain, so a degree of "non-realism" would still present for entertainment value.

Actually that ' 'Ending's just a bait for 2nd season, so no satisfying conclusion on its own '' shouldn't count as 2-cour sequels as basically the same. Basically sequels that get aired after 2 seasons.
