Funny, I'm not a KnB fan. Not usually a big sports anime fan but I thought I'd try this one. Looks interesting though this was just the middle school setup episode before he goes to high school and of course... underdog kid meets the star of the team who beat his team, will now be on the same team. That sounds really tropey but so far I still like it.


KnB was the first sports anime I liked. Usually not a big sports fan either.

But I'm liking this volleyball one so far.

I should add I'm actually watching Dia no A right now too and again that one has surprised me a bit. It's a "why am I still watching this?" kind of show. Seems they have to win the national championship so they have to win every game which kind of takes the tension out of it but while I'm watching it is interesting.

I'm interested to see if Hinata is going to struggle just to get on the team. Kageyama seems like he'll be on it easily with his size but Hinata seems more positive, more of a team leader. Should be interesting to see them compete for it anyway.

I enjoyed it, but doesn't hit the Kuroko's Basketball void like I hoped it would.


Exactly!



I don't know why though lol. It just doesn't.


It just lacks that Kuroko charm.

I had to look up what Dia no A meant xD

I haven't tried that one yet, KnB was the first sports anime to catch me.

This season Im trying this and Baby Steps.

Im interesting in seeing Kageyama and Hinata interact. Kageyama clearly saw something in Hinata, with his unwillingness to lose and taking each hit seriously.

This one is already hyped huge as the next KnB so I just hope it doesn't disappoint people. I won't be comparing them but many will.

I'm not going to be comparing them much. Just as you said people are saying this is the next KnB. So was just hoping it'll fill the void I had from the season ending.

I say its enjoyable in its own right, just doesnt hit the itch I had enough.

Will keep watching.

Haha I know even the advertisers built their whole entire pitch on filling KnB shoes, I really hope most of the fans learn how to look at the anime a bit objectively, they are varying sports so the intensity will alter in some way and wont translate completely in hype, I do still wish to see the "unrealistic moves" that are epic in every way possible xD.
Plus I have a rule for sports animes, 10 episode doubt...for 10 episodes I will let it do w/e it wants and not judge it, due to the genre sometimes be either a hit or miss, there is never really a in b/w, so after that if it does really still disappoint then the angry viewer pants will be put on.

I have to say when his setter messed up the toss and he just zings over to get it. Was awesome. As Kagayama thought 'wow, how did he get there'..

lol

LOL at angry viewer pants but I know what you mean though I never force myself through episodes. If I'm not enjoying it then if it's the first minute or the 49th episode, I can drop it right then and there, likely never to pick it up again (1% of the time do I go back to anime that I stop watching).

Already I think I saw while not quite KnB level, some dodgy physics in the air even in the middle school matches. But I haven't read the manga or anything so I don't know if that's as far as it goes.

Maybe saying it didn't fill my KnB void was wrong. Cause I compared it in a sense.

But its cause it did just come as KnB season ended and people kept comparing them lol.

Still think this is cool though.

Hahaha...Well I am assuming you are alot more versed in anime than me, due to the great taste of your favorites, lol btw I Think when I glimpsed at your page it was what made me watch Kokoro connect (FYI loved it!), anyway that is why I will also assume you already know what you will love and simply hate, but I don't think I have reached that point lol so No matter how horrible a anime gets, if I have settled in, I tend to be in for the long run, unless it some how aggravates all 5 of my senses xD. I sensed the physics breaks as well, and I really dont want to spoil the anime for myself and glancing at the manga lol so I will have to watch it and see how the moves get animated.

Glad you liked Kokoro Connect!

My anime likes and dislikes are all gut level. I watch so much, almost every show that comes out so I really don't need to keep up with a show I'm not enjoying. Surprisingly I only drop or don't start around 5 shows per season so I'm normally watching at least 25-30 simulcasts. If you're in the bottom 5/30 shows I'm watching then you get dropped but I'm not actively looking for shows to drop. I hope to like every show I start and watch them until the end.

My son plays middle school volleyball so I know what it looks like. Nothing like this! But Japanese students take things way more seriously than over here... so I'm sure they look much more composed than what I'm used to here LOL
