    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 ...

    Not worth the time...
    For those of u interested in this anime i would suggest just watching up to the finale of the 1st match. If you still like it up to that point then continue watching. If you have lost some interest then don't continue because the anime does not improve by that much IMO.

  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    my dear boys review.
    I can't really tell how well the anime is yet for i have only seen the first episode. What I can say though is i'm kinda disappointed in the animation to me its total crap compared to others from its year.

    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 ...

    Luckily, it is different from Slam Dunk! So you cant really compare!

    Maybe new players will come tag with the group!
    I wanna see a match against Tendoji!

    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 ...

    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.
