I kind of wish they would just cut the girl out of this, but whatever. As long as she's actually a character and not some thing that only goes "Uhm..." "Ah..." all the time the girl will be fine. It can still be decent as long as they focus on the dudes and the sport and not so much the romance.

Hmm, this series might end up like Starmyu, where its premise is not focused on the sport, but only uses it to tell another forefront, such as, friendship, coming of age, or another message. I'll still watch it, but I don't think this'll be a a complex sports series like Baby Steps or Eyeshield.

I've heard about this one, I'm pretty damn excited!!! It's not quite the track anime I've been wishing for, but this'll probably be as close as I'm gonna get.

I like to at least try most sports anime, so this will be on my list.

My first thought was "wtf is this a sports anime about walking?" But that doesn't seem to be quite the case. That would be pretty funny though
