I hope some people here can speak Mandarin because that was fun to watch without reading the subs especially in the second half. Oh and that ED song was pretty good if you ask me.

Yes, and not available in Canada in French unlike some others so I too watched it on Funimation. The art style threw me off at first but after a while I didn't mind it. Story is interesting enough. Music is good. Mandarin (? could be Cantonese, I wouldn't know) was a nice touch, said more than just a line in Chinese.

It's Mandarin. Cantonese sounds a little different than that. I've been to Bejing, China a few years ago and the language there is native, at least in the province I've visited.

As soon as I saw Masaaki Yuasa was heavily involved I knew this was going to be one of my absolute favourites. A ingenious, complex storyteller and an incomparably edgy animator. He actually appears to have toned down the contrast substantially in this series, which has made the free flowing, transient imagery quite disorienting in some of his past works. Ultimately though I'm just relieved to finally experience a bit of vivacity again in an industry so often guilty of mass producing dead fish, sexualised, computer cgi generated crap in lieu of the genuine article.

Normally a narrative platitude like 'sporting rivalry' (in ping pong no less) would have me bored out of my wits, but it's hardly so simplistic in this case. Yuasa loves to explore the peculiar and eccentric in the psychology of his characters through the liberal form of his animation, irregardless of the subject matter. This visually geared fascination with the subconscious mind is on display in everything he's produced to date, and this series certainly doesn't appear to be an exception. I love everything about it to death already, can't wait for the next episode.

Smile is a tactical genius. Even if he couldn't actually beat Kong right then, saying only what he said then leaving psyches Kong out a bit thus making their eventual match easier for him.

Really enjoyed the first episode and is one of the better ones. Very different art style sort of like a messy style but I'm loving it. Voice acting was top notch and surprise they actually got a proper Chinese actor for Wenge. Anyway really looking forward to see how this unfolds.

Wow I have to get use to this style ,very different .

Even though I played ping pong since childhood , I am not not competetive at all so i dont really get into the competion part of it.
I can say I use to be good I played with the 2 hand grips ,with lots of backspin and topspin and timing my older brother and i would play it until i give up ... i could not beat him

but back to this anime... quiet interesting

Wow wow wow! I thought Haikyu!! was going to be my favorite sports anime this season. I was wrong; it is Ping Pong!

(I plan to watch both, and probably Baby Steps too)
