Threads labeled as "Discussion" threads are for ongoing discussion once a show has started airing and should not be created prior to the first regular "airing" of the first episode.


It hasn't even aired yet. Well, so much for the new rules...

In this case it's just a couple of hours ahead, and we're not going to be super-nitpicky about it. Stark, please try not to do this habitually though. We'll hold others to the same standards, allowing the occasional slightly early thread (same day), but not if done repeatedly by the same user (if reported.)

Hmm that was alright. We got basically the intro of the main characters and some running (I expect pacing to pick up soon)

One question: is this just running or is it parkour/free running?

Not just running but a lot of striding and competition.
Have to see it to believe it.

Does anyone know when Funi will post the episode? I know it already aired (was able to watch a RAW format of it), so I'm just wondering how long it takes from actual air time to it being aired with subs.

Episode 1

Run! Run for everlasting peace!!

The first episode was executed nicely. I don't think this'll be like your hardcore sports Anime with it going into the mechanics, but at the same time, I don't think it'll be like Free or Starmyu either. Ready to see more running!

Looking forward to more.

Episode 1

That was a pretty nice way to set things up there with the athletes being a fun bunch there and Nana showing just how critical her role as a relationer is. Those guys sure did show their moves in different ways as Takeru and Heath are well-rounded runners, Riku is a pure speedster, and Hozumi is such a daredevil. Seeing that this is adapted from an otoge, it feels closer to Haikyuu than Dance with Devils. Anyway, I'll watch some more of this for now.

This show is right on time with modern sports great idea. I haven't seen a show with Parkour in like ever, only anime that has some is Dog Days and its a different format. My son has been doing this discipline for 3 years and the popularity is huge. He favorite style is Free Running which is in this anime so he is pumped. Madhouse is really smart average age fpr Pakour community is 16-25 males which probably is in correlation to anime viewers and Instagram followers it all is at peak in my area at present time

That was sort of amusing. Normally school setting humor is cringeworthy to me, but that wasn't bad. I'm going to laugh really hard if they also compete in shougi competitions. XD

The parkour parts were fun. It'll be cool to see a full race with everyone doing parkour moves.
