I really enjoyed watching episode 10 too. This was an awesome episode content wise. I really like how the direction of the story went. The complexity of the characters is making this Ping Pong anime very interesting .

I am really loving the style of this anime production a lot as well . Thank you Masaki Yuasa sensei for directing this one Hope I meet you again and thank you for directing this one.

Wow. Thanks be to all you guys who were hyping this anime on other parts of the site. Because of you, I finally decided to sit down and watch this show, and I absolutely love it.. I had to cringe my way through the entirety of the first episode, but after that, the art style started to grow on me. I still think the characters are utterly hideous, but it works extremely well for what its trying to do.

I'll be staying out of this thread to avoid spoilers as I catch up - but I still just wanted to say thanks and express my shame that I let the art style turn me off of this charming series lol.

Oh wow, oh wow yes. Just watched the episode today, and I'm too lazy to put it into words, so, I'll just use yours.

The thing I found to be quite unsatisfying about the last episode, is that the series actually ended. The expanded backstory for Smile was excellent, and do I need to say anything about the part where he collapsed on those railings and the EPIC music started playing? The music has been a huge part in the series, they just find the right thing to put on. Oh, and Kazama looked peculiar with hair, but he still cleaned up nice.

I like all the catchphrases though.
"Blood tastes like iron".
"The hero will appear"
"There's red blood flowing through my veins"
"People can fly"

I cannot decide if the forgone conclusion of Smile's character development at the end made it any better or worse though. It was still nice to see.

Episode 11/Finale


Blood tastes like iron~

There were some other quotes in this episode but this was the simplest yet most memorable one. The match between Peco and Smile imo was wonderfully done with the OST (shit, I need to get this when it comes out). The animation as usual was complex with an intense feeling demonstrated by the integrity. Overall storytelling and background characterization was so well done with this show's avant-garde style. Damn, I am seriously going to miss this series.

Most underrated and one of my favorites from this show. I will remember every character from this, especially you China.

I don't normally like when things end with an epilogue, but that's not the case here. It was really satisfying, and the segue into it with that song made it so.

I have loved the music in this show and did find myself trying to track down a soundtrack CD (for more than just the OP and ED), and didn't find one. I really hope one happens and I don't end up forgetting to seek out later.

Gotta say, this goes right to to top of my rankings. There's really nothing I didn't like about it.

Speechless....
My number 1...beyond satisfied from start to finish, I feel joy.
With this final, it doesn't even matter if this show is underrated, as long as I know a "sport" show like this can exist, I am content.

I was crushed by the inevitability of a conclusion to this series. It's bittersweet enjoying a series you know is ending. I think this series easily outdid the movie adaption, which I loved to death. I've got an instant void in anime-watching material now. I hope I can find another series I can geek out to as hard as this one soon.
