I loved that punch. As someone who can be easily agitated under stress, I understood immediately why he did it. Was even a bit surprised that Ei-chan was so puzzled by it.

I've been somewhat disappointed in CR's summer shows, but I console myself each Sunday with how much I enjoy the continuing Baby Steps (and, to a lesser degree, Haikyuu.)


I don't understand the Natsu dislike. I think she's cute, has a nice voice and personality, and I am actually disappointed that we don't get to see more of her tennis.

As to bathroom's suggestion that she's Usa-like, I don't really see that either (but I also don't see Usa as being as stalkery as bathroom perceives).

Since I have read this part watching it was fun to do but it was starting to get tiring since we have seen this pattern over and over and then the silly cliffhanger....

Well they will end this game pretty much on the first few scenes on the next episode for sure. But for a non seeded Eichan to be in the top 4 of the tournament has gotten the tennis community to notice him .
but we are on episode 16 and we have 25 total so far, we have 9 left.

Since he is top 4 , he is qualified to go to the next tournament the All Japan Junior Indoor Selecion, Kantou Region


I wonder it they will end the series before
there or after ?

Have we seen Souji character yet? I am forgetting things.... oh we will see him soon

Episode 16


It was an alright episode. Pretty fast paced with a lot of action but with that cliffhanger, I hope Eiichiro will be able to mount a comeback. Also, I wonder how much his opponent will snap if he loses lol.

Decent OST as usual.

So the episode ends in a massive cliffhanger...

Same. I'm hoping there's a tandem race to the top at some point. That would be pretty exciting.

This is off topic but, the first 6 episodes of Kawai seriously made me cringe. He stared at her for hours without her consent (walking home or in the library). Oh, I guess it's fine if he didn't touch her or her things. That didn't break any laws. It was all legal, right? That makes it alright. Have you seen Hey Arnold? Do you remember Helga? You remember that shrine made of Arnold's gum in her closet? And then there's that guy with the glasses that always followed her around, and then she punched his clock out. That is like Usa, getting an Usa. Usaception.




Now, on to Natsu, her nose. Also, her STARE. Since the first time I have seen the stare, I have disliked it. It was a weird stare. It's not like he was a prodigy or anything, and yet she fixated on him. Then there is her arrogant attitude. She is NEVER wrong. Always knows the right thing to do and say, her opinion is the best right? Yes, she is my least favorite character of the series.

Episode 17

Holy shit. Eiirchiro seriously improved. The kid is using both his brain and brawn now.

I don't care if he lost this set. He should be proud of how far he has come to at this point.

Over a year's worth of training at that tennis facility can't be cheap. Mom and Dad are probably like $cha-ching$

Not to mention the obvious: Your kid comes up to you and tells you after a year in an after school club he wants to go pro in that sport. K, response? Your jaw drops.

Wonder if they'll keep up the cg animation for whenever there's a high paced match like the final one in this ep.

and the story moved on...

the animation on the play Takuma vs Araya was almost mocap , it look pretty good.

I was happy to hear Hosoya san in another sports anime , I knew he had Souji's role but I it was nice to hear him in that role. He is in the 3 other sports anime airing this season .
He is the strong willed Ace heater team captain Tatsu in Ace of Diamond, and the wimpy Ace spiker Asahi in Haikyuu ...ooops almost forgot ...he is the new hot shot swimmer Sousuke in Free .
Love that kid
