    Baby Steps to Giant Strides
    Baby Steps is probably the most underrated sports manga ever, whereas things like Haikyuu! gets animated after just over 2 years of serialization, Baby steps has finally gotten animated after over 6 years of serialization (since 2007) and still ongoing.

    What makes Baby Steps so unique and different is that it really is the epitome of what a sports manga should be. It contains a diverse cast of ...

    Gasp! A Sports Anime without an overwhelming abundance of arrogant hotdogs!!!
    I have been enjoying reading this manga for months now...waiting impatiently for each chapter, and so far the anime is just as good if not better. I love the intelligence of its approach to tennis, its lack of the cliche and awkward teenage "drama" that populates so many anime, and most of all, I love Ei-chan as a protanganist.
    So many shounen anime, especially sports anime, seem to either star ...

    100% Tennis, No Super Saiyans.
    Well, perhaps 95% tennis. Still no super saiyans, though.

    Baby Steps, as a manga, has been an absolutely fantastic ride and glimpse into the world of Tennis without devolving into the usual shounen tropes that you see.

    The show so far has been 100% faithful to the manga, and we have a lot of material and story waiting for us down the pipe. It's fantastic to see.

    It's truly great ...

    Great sports anime.. even better if you like tennis.
    Gonna keep it short. Great main character with latent genius abilities. There's a hot chick/friend who's also skilled. Great rivalries. Action is well animated. Characters and character development is awesome.

    I like it and will keep watching!

    You are in store for a ride!
    The anime is great! I love sports anime when they are not realistic and have a bunch of flashy plays like in Kuroko's but damn I love the realism this anime has. It's not even the realism of the sport either. The character studies and writes a lot of notes not because he is a nerd or a genius. It's because he an average person just like we are, he has to write notes and cram to study because he is ...

    Every journey begins with a single step.
    What we have here is another sports based anime based on tennis, but it doesn't give the appearance of being a tedious sport only show. From the very first episode we are already seeing great strides toward both character and relationship development. Our mc Eiichiro approaches everything in a meticulous fashion as a way of learning, since he has to study things repeatedly in order to get them ...

    A very Unique Interesting Sports Anime with Unlimited Potential
    Baby Steps is a very well-paced sports anime so far with a wonderful mixture of plot, character development and humor. I have never seen a sports anime differentiate itself from normal sports anime archetypes as Baby Steps has: Whereas normally the heroine in a sports anime is delegated to the sidelines such as a manager, in Baby Steps the romantic interest has her own purpose with a real goal, ...

    Baby Steps is really interesting
    Unlike Prince of Tennis, Baby Steps focuses on the growth of a new player. The anime has really hooked me in and i can't wait for more episodes. As a player of tennis, i really appreciate how in depth they are in showing the mechanics of tennis and i can relate to the advice that's given. However, the details are not too in-depth to turn away casual anime watchers. I recommend watching this anime.

    The first 4 episodes
    So far the anime has been amazing. The main character has an interesting personality. I love the his character development. The anime is based on tennis mechanics but it is not exaggerated unlike prince of tennis. I can't wait for more episode and see how this anime will turn out in the future.
