I just realized, this airs for free users on my birthday.

Happy birthday to me!

That aside, can any premium users tell me, in all seriousness, how is the plot?


As most have mentioned (outside of jokes about bouncing plots and plots being thrust in your face), the plot isn't that complicated. Idol singer gets humiliated by pro wrestler, swears vengeance, decides to become a pro wrestler. That's the one sentence description, really. However, all else aside, this really is a sports show, and sports shows live and die by their characters. And, from that standpoint, I liked it. Sakura is a great MC for a sports show, and I actually enjoyed Rio as well. The verdict is still out, for me, since the ancillary characters aren't that developed yet, but it could actually work pretty well.

et tu, AT-X?


Sad, isn't it? I guess they really want you to buy the blu-ray. Eh, have to see how the show goes. It might be worthwhile....


pass. Hyakka Ryouran, High School DXD, Rogue Hero, and Sora no Otoshimono had better fanservice and were more interesting.

Not as bad as it could have been.


Question is where does it go from here.
Does she get pro training and suddenly make an amazing debut of solid wins until the fated rematch, or is she looking at a hard road of steady losses until she really understands the sport she signed on for.


Whether this show gives her the typical Sports "Guts=Victory" Golden Road or the character building Hard road is going to determine if I keep watching

In their defense, we do get shows like this every season while shows like Free! are a very rare occurence.

The way that Free!, UtaPri and BroCon are selling (well) I think they will get a lot more of them from now on!

But yeah, we have this one, Yuushibu and even Walkure Romanze with the skirt eating horse and NouCome and Machine Doll haven't started yet so we have more than our share of ecchi this season (and we had High School DxD last season).

It isn't as so much porn as it is that it can be mistaken for porn. Lots of moaning from the female characters when put in submission holds.

Anyway, that was about what I expected, except worse.

Yeah... The first 30 seconds or so of this show... I totally had to mute it. >___< More reason for me to get the Roku 3 ( with the head phone jack )...

That being said, I really didn't find the first episode as bad as i thought it would be. It shows potential and I like sports themed series' so I'm going to give the series a shot.
