    One of the top sport animes
    I loved this series and it's a darned shame they haven't made a follow up one, it's frustrating when they leave you hanging at the end. I'm guessing it just didn't sell well enough at the time. Great storyline, lots of characters which you soon find yourself loving or hating. It's got a combination of action and watching friendships develop. I'd recommend this to anyone who not only enjoys sports ...

    Easily Forgotten and Not Missed
    One thing that usually grabs me for anime is good artwork. This one, while not great isn't bad. But I had forgotten I'd already seen this series before officially signing up with Crunchyroll. The story wasn't bad, but felt lackluster in making me want to delve deeper into learning more about the characters. It does pick up as the series progresses, but I have to say that for sports-centered anime ...

    OverView of Dear Boys
    I find that Dear boys is a really similar anime to Prince of Tennis in certain ways. The fact that they are both sports related is obvious but when watching you come to realize even the characters are really similar. Anyone who has seen PoT would agree that they are almost based along the same idea with similar looking characters. The background music is really fitting with the techno beats to the ...

    Best Basketball anime of all times
    This is the first sports anime i watched, saw it one day in TV and loved it. It may look slow but its great, if you are a true Basketball fan this anime will make you love it more. It doesn´t focus much on comedy like Slam Dunk but does more in the players and their hard work. I recommend that at least you watch it once and you´ll adore it, the music (same type of music of Initial D), the players ...

  • Solid sports-inspirational anime
    There are bits that are a bit goofy, and the animation is very clearly both low-budget and dated, but it's a pleasant show with an enjoyable atmosphere and an inspirational story. The characters aren't the deepest, but they're still endearing, and that sentiment goes for the show as a whole. I had a great time with it.

  • This anime is just great!
    I really loved everything about this anime. Something that I really liked was how it showed the power of will when you want to achieve something, and that sometimes you might lose, but from losing or making mistakes we also learn, and if we can overcome that we might even come back stronger, the point is never give up.

  • A Review Based on Personal Recollection
    Having read the manga before watching the anime, I had gone in with very low expectation because I had known this is only 26 episode series, yet manga had already continued well into Act II at the time and anime was out. I had thought the plot will be rushed and character development will be sacrificed, which turns out to be true on both accounts (it had included some events in Act II while ...

    Dear Boys is good to watch
    Dear boys is an anime about basketball, friendship, trust, overcoming obstacles and to win the championship. It is short and sweet, I wish it was longer coz I wanted to see their new player but can't make everyone happy.

    A Anime worth watching
    Well to me it was worth watching even though I am not a fan of sports animes. The animation may be old but it's decent and the storyline is awesome to it has it moments with romance but I think it really worth watching XD apart from the ending was bit of a let down I hope they will be a season 2.
