Episode 1

It's no wonder where the scorching part of the title comes from as those girls are burning up that they are sweating so much. The action was pretty intense, but the other stuff, I just wasn't too invested in. Still, it looks like it could be fun.

I can already see where this is going. But, that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I thought it was cute.

At first I wasn't into the art style, but it's already growing on me.

So far I dig it. I just hope we get more char info. and background on at least the main girls. We didn't get a whole lot as of now.

I'm having a hard time with the art style and the overall cutesiness of the characters in looks and voices and squee tendency.

But, I like how serious they are about the sport, so I'll stick around a little while for that, and to see if the ace rivalry becomes interesting or irritating.

A lot of detail went into that sweat that's for certain.. lol What would really make this series hilariously amazing, is if the girls were playing super power table tennis like prince of tennis style. Moe + Hype/Comedy = I'll watch and enjoy that

Ones doing it for the fame while the other does it for fun! I like this conflict between the two, You one girl who is arrogant and really just playing to be praised, loving the lime light and the attention while the other is shy, a bit quiet, and simply plays for the love of it! So I predict that Tailsy-san will maybe teach agari-san a thing or two about sportsmen ship!... maybe

Not liking the art style and it really feels like it's maybe too long. This feels more like something that would have worked better in the 8 minute episode range rather than full length. That said, it's not all bad and I'll give it another couple episodes to see if it hooks me at all.

This looks like it could be funny

Literally 5 seconds into the show and I found my waifu. Plus the opening music during that match was pretty awesome!

Kinda reminds me of how Smile and Peco were at the start of Ping Pong The Animation. Smile was reserved and awkward and was naturally talented and played because he enjoyed the game while Peco was the one playing up to the spotlight and wanted the fame aspect from being really good at the sport.

Ping pong? Well, all right.

I don't know should i like or hate the MC since she's proud... and also tsundere. Also, another anservice alert! In addition to that, i guess even those characters have weakness when it comes to ping pong.
