Episode 1

This is quite a big change from Teekyuu as the animation style is different with the use of watercolors and while they still talk faster than normal, it's nowhere near the speed of that in Teekyu. And it's four minutes long instead of two. So it begins with the girls getting ready to play tennis. Pretty nice change of pace this show is.

This feels a little like Teekyu but the water color style of the artwork really is different. Less comical as well.

Episode 1: How Does Someone Ask For Water That is From the Neighbor With Senpai

It's not as over the top as Teekyu even with the doubled time of Teekyu. The jokes aren't as absurd, but I still found it enjoyable. Maybe they will actually get some tennis in this time. Can't wait to see Death Requiem in a match.

It didn't grab me at all and I'm not sure I'll remember it next week. I think I was groaning more than I was laughing and that's hard to do in such a short running length.

I found myself rather enjoying the episode. It lacks Teekyu's frenetic pace but that's not a negative to me as I feel Teekyu is a bit too fast to both keep up with the dialogue and the action. Plus it's a short and will be fun watch on my lunch breaks. Definitely a keeper.

before i watched it, i read some posts that weren't really so positive... but i liked it. it's definitely not teekyuu season eight, but it's like just different enough and just similar enough? a more water colour kinda look than teekyuu's bright colours, but the actual art isn't that different.

i kinda feel like maybe this show is what ppl expect teekyuu to be, before they watch it? a normal speed, and they play more tennis. i wonder if they'll actually continue to play this much tennis tho LOL

Episode 2

One girl fits in quite well with the Bike Club in Bakuon, while the girls simply have lunch on the rooftop. Someone is drinking straight from the gourd. Sounds gross, but of course that's what these girls do.

It's like a more adorable version of Teekyu lol

Episode 2: Get Out of the Way, Horse Coming Through, With Senpai, Get Out of the Way

Kind of wanted the last girl to only make sound effects that would have been hilarious. But I gotta say the OP and ED for this show is actually really catchy and better than Teekyu's Although I understand an opening but there is no need for an ED lol but I enjoyed the music

Episode 3

These girls are playing around with a cat, and they are praying at a temple, which happens to be a cat shrine. And they run into another cat, as well as Sekiguchi everywhere they go. This show is starting to feel more like Teekyu again with those random jokes, but at a slower pace.

Seeing at how random this show is, I wouldn't be surprised if other types of animals show up later on besides cats.

Episode 3: Spindly, Long and Thin, Just as the Silhouette of a Cat, With Kouhai

So is Sekiguchi-san going to be the Micheal of Usakame? But this was one of the better episodes so far, random jokes were good.

Episode 4

The girls now have an advisor, and they are practicing. Too bad that they are practicing cavalry battles rather than tennis, and they even took it indoors in the hallway. They ought to play some practice matches, so the Teekyu girls should be arriving soon. But of course, these girls have other things on their minds.

Episode 4: The Faint Sound of Dripping Dew From Lotus Blossoms With Kouhai

Ah yes if we could do what ever we wanted to do we'd be playing cavalry battles where ever we could. Sensei or the advisor is a nice addition to the cast as a supporting character. Hoping that practice match is against the Teekyu peeps.
