    Comforting sports anime, no fanservice, fun characters
    I've only seen the first episode so far, but I'm hooked already.

    It's the usual high school join a new sport plot, but with quiz bowl/scholars bowl. I will admit, it makes me nostalgic for my own high school days.

    I appreciate the choice to skip fanservice when the main character. I like that both the main character and the more experienced female lead have different strengths. It seems ...

    Review After Episode One
    One episode down out and this already looks like the best thing in the world. On a base level, it's all about a high school bookworm (who kinda looks like Pidge from Voltron) who gets really into competitive trivia. The format is just like a sports anime, so the quizzes themselves are done in the most intense, over the top manor. To add to what's a really unique and interesting plot line, the art ...

    Love the Premise for this Anime
    I like how the bookworm develops into the hero.

    He is shy and underestimates his won ability.

    It is said, we cannot measure ourselves in isolation.

    He truly finds this truism out and starts to grow!

    I'm looking forward as to how these friendships develop.

    As a former Quiz Bowler, 5 stars
    So far I like it. Quiz Bowl was a big part of my jr high and high school life, so I'm glad to see it get a little love.

    A fast finger and knowledge is all it takes. I went to a tiny school (15 students in my class) and loved wiping the floor with 2500+student high schools in competitions.

    Average in every way
    Nothing about this show stands out, not the animation, music, plot line or characters. It's not a bad show but after watching it I felt nothing about it, it's just blah. I'm pretty sure I will be able to predict most of what's going to happen in the rest of the season and I don't feel any interest in the characters, which makes it pretty boring for me. My suggestion is to watch it if you don't ...

    Could Have Been More Creative with the Characters, Needs a Gimmick
    I feel this will get anyone interested in quiz bowl. It makes a good ad for those types of clubs. It's a series with good pacing and decent character development. I appreciate that it doesn't fall back on too many tropes, either.

    I feel I can best word my greatest issue by directing everyone to the poster image for the anime. If you lined all the characters equally, only the guy in the green ...

    Meh Show, Bad Quizbowl
    As admirable as it is to do an anime about such a normally dull activity (quizbowl is no spectator sport), there are a couple things wrong with their depiction of the activity that I have major issues with.

    The show itself is ok. Ok characters (though the coach/club leader stands out), pretty decent animation and style, etc. However, what I cannot forgive is how they chose to ...

    Favorite Anime of the Season so Far
    I did not watch any seasonal anime last season nothing caught my attention besides returning shows like DBS, and Boku no Hero. This show is a breath of fresh air. Decent Characters maybe they will be fleshed out more as the show progresses but for no their neither good nor bad just, average. But the Quiz bowl premise is really intriguing and the way the main character is a book nerd really ...

    After watching the first 2 episodes - Pass on this one
    This is a below average series, plain and simple. The voice actress for the main heroine is subpar (she apparently only gets VA work because she's a former idol). She sounds like a bad secondary or background character with how out out of place and bland her voice is. The characters and writing are terrible as well. Episode 2 immediately introduces some emotional tension between the main ...

    Memories from elementary
    When I was a kid, I was a nerd that would also read. I entered a quiz ball too, but there was no teams in my school and nobody really talked to me. So when I saw the first episode, this immediately made me feel good on the inside. I love this anime so far, and I hope it continues to be successful. That's all there is to this review!
