Episode 1

I really liked this one! This is about as close as I'll get to a track anime, so I'll take it.

So it's competitive parkour with track-like relays. I'm gonna like this. The music was good, animation is nice and fast, and the artstyle I think is really cool. I also like the characters so far!

This should be a fun show!

OK, i haven't been this excited while watching anime since Attack on titan ep 21-22, and that's like 3 years ago. I don't even know what to say. This was pretty much flawless all the way through, and every single frame in the episode hit perfection with ease. (not even exaggerating, i'm actually liking it this much)

Music, characters and animation are all point on, and it's funny as hell. This is a shining jewel in the making.
(The little blond guy was pretty epic)

Got a 30 day free pass from Funi just to watch this, but I may not use it all up because unsure whether this show will really be worth it or not.

It had energy and it wasn't bad to look at (not Madhouse's best work though), but it all depends on how much they focus on the boys rather than the girl and their romances. We'll see. I liked the start so far. It was cute, Riku is adorable and Takeru is pretty cute as well. His leg groping this is a little weird though, but as long as he and Riku get cute moments together my fujoshi heart will be happy.

Well, that was fun and really energetic. Kind of a combination between parkour/free running and relay racing. Though I can't imagine a real school actually letting students to set up a course like that, it did make for a fun run. I especially like the contrast between the straight run of the 1st year versus the 3rd year trickster. I'm interested to see how they actually set up the competitive races later on. Hopefully they'll keep the otome levels down and focus on the sport and whatever happened to the other 3rd years. They can keep the shogi element though

I am intrigued by this series. I enjoy the characters and the set was interesting, I am just curious how they are going to carry it throw the rest of the series. In terms of animation... i am sure it will get better as the series goes on... but it feels awfully white and pale. It's like they turned up the white filter for this series and flushing out the colors, but that is most likely the style. I'll just have to get used to it.

Also I couldn't help point out to myself how similar Haru from 'Free' is to Takeru both in character design, mannerism, and dead pan love of a sport. I kept saying to myself " Well, I guess Haru decided to quit swimming and join the stride club. "

I needed an anime to watch while I was on the treadmill. Perfect fit...I guess?

It wasn't awful or anything so I'll give it a few more episodes, but I don't expect it to be any more than average.

I had the same thoughts too! Lol. Takeru really looks like Haru!!

As a sports anime fan, I definitely had to check this one out. It was a good start! The art looked so modern and futuristic, just like in K. The movements were fluid and the sound effects used were also great. It's definitely a new sport to get hooked on. I'm excited to meet the guys from the other schools. I was just wondering if this will be as long as Kuroko No Basuke or Haikyuu, or as short as Free.

And you definitely gotta love the seiyuu cast for this series. <3

I guess whatever time it was released on Funimation last week will be the normal time instead of 11 eastern. That or it's just late again.

Might have something to do with this.

They did say everything should be back up though. I'm watching Luck & Logic there right now haha. But yeah, I suppose a delay would make sense because of it.

Episode 2

Here, Nana learns that timing is everything. Too bad Riku's timing sucks making Nana's job tougher than it is already. This club is already having a stride match, but they are in need of sponsors, and Heath's older sister happens to be an executive for a major company. However, ti comes with the condition that they win the spring festival, and they have to do some modeling. And they meet up with Saisei, who is their first opponent after a last-minute change. Right off the bat, they have to face the best. Nana is quite analytical there using data to get her timing down. That was pretty funny, especially the part where Hozumi is wearing the wedding dress, and now with that the games begin. This show has certainly been great.

Hmm fun, we got comedy with the photoshoot but also a bit more of what Riku is feeling when they talked about his brother. Wonder what their history is like. I bet this show will explore more about his background story.

I wonder if the team really is ready for their first match? They got a powerhouse in their way.

Episode 2

Gotta get that relation!

So, I think this series is about half and half of the characters and sport. The comedy was nice and it's good to see Riku and the others working hard to get the relation going.

The series is looking better, so ready for more!
