Episode 1

Haruki is in the university judo club with his older sister Haruko and friend Kazu, but while Haruko is a prodigy in a family of judo studs, Haruki is not exactly enjoying the sport, and having hurt his shoulder and with his best friend quitting that he quits as well. So the two decide to do something different, and they start a men's cheerleading club as Kazu's mother was a great cheerleader. They get Wataru to join, and after watching a cheerleading performance with both men and women in it, their plan takes off. That was a solid way to start this off seeing that these boys are trying to do something that's normally associated with girls.

It was kinda average honestly. Good amount of realism but the characters' personalities feel so dry...and the cheesy music too.

Going to check out a few more episodes to see if I should continue or not.

So went into watching this with no premade assumptions. First take thought a story about being in college was cool don't see that very much. Second an all men's cheer leading squad interesting concept and good background on both Mcs. This has spiked my interest will keep watching. I thought animation style was good quality. One last thought this is Produced by Brains Base they have a incredible record of great anime so with that I will be hooked for sure. Brains Base=Love/anime

Well, Brain's Base is a much different studio today as a number of key personnel left to form Shuka, hence the reason why Durarara!! x2 was done by them. It was inactive for awhile before getting back into business.

To me the name has to much clout for them to produce anything with low standards same goes for Madhouse in my humble opinion. I get what you mean about certain key people leaving but it can also be a healthy sign of growth.

Episode 1

It's a bit melodramatic, but I like what Cheer Boys has offered so far, and I care enough about the characters to want to see them succeed. I'm still not completely sold yet, but I'm looking forward to their debut as an official men's cheerleading club.

CHEER BOYS! The BL bait is strong with this one. Not a bad first ep for what it is. Solid show thus far. Comedy fit well and it certainly has the bishie appeal.

Well that was just low key fun. I certainly enjoyed that was more than Days. Kazu is voiced by the same VA as Nishinoya in Haikyu so maybe this will help fill my Haikyu void until the fall.

I am actually liking this one , I cant wait to see how this group develops , I like the writting so far.

And Okamoto is all over the place again and when I saw the Sakamoto kun look 3rd character, I thought it would be funny if he was voiced by Sugita san ,,,, and I started laughing when I heard his voice This is going to be a silly one for sure.

The college setting is indeed refreshing

Cant wait for episode 2

Episode 2

And now the team is up to four members with the former judo captain Koji Tono joining. Ton is a big guy seeing that he holds the record for a restaurant's katsu-eating challenge, but there is a role for a person of every size. Then two more join as they saw two tennis club members backflipping, and one of them they met at the restaurant tacking the challenge. The initial recruitment attempt failed when a drink Haru started a fight in the restaurant, but with their routine, those two end up joining. That was pretty good, the cheerleading and everything.

Great episode only need 1 more member for team goal of 7 for school festival. They poached 2 members from tennis club who have good tumbling skills. Another new member is Ton who is a big kid will make good base for human pyramid
