From what I saw, they're keeping it more tame on TV.

Like, in the manga, there's uncensored content but in the anime so far, it's only swimsuits.

I'll be honest. This sounds disgusting. But I'm pretty open-minded so I'll watch at least the first episode.

But unless this premise is just a basis for social commentary about/against this sort of entertainment (and really, what are the chances of that ), it is not likely to live long in my queue.

It's a legitimate sports series at least. The author knows the premise is silly, so the matches are really over-the-top and hard to consider actual fanservice, but all of the tropes of a good sports manga are there. The balance between the joke matches and the tropes played straight is neat.

Episode 1

I was expecting this to be one of the worst shows of the season as the whole concept of a sport totally dedicated to fanservice seems to be nothing but the butt of jokes. Nozomi wants to win, but she ended up falling in the end when she got a face full of ass at the end. Anyway, that was just stupid seeing all of those butts being whipped at each other, but at least I give the creators credit for the concept. Seeing Non acting so clumsy in the dorm room is the best part of the episode.

I'm still disappointed that they cut out most of the qualifiers, but the mock race was great. I actually have faith now that they'll be able to portray the high energy in the rest of the races.

Hmm, I don't know. The fight scenes were kind of entertaining for a few minutes because of how unusual their "weapons" are but that's it. The humor isn't really my thing and the characters are likeable but not really interesting imo. But it's possible that it's getting better so I'll watch at least one or two more episodes.

Episode 1

After seeing the first episode I'm disappointed that they skipped a lot from the manga and went straight to the academy. They expect the audience to know who most of this characters are? Another thing most of the episode was a flashback I hope we don't get more of this just to see what happened during the exam arc. Even though they skipped the exam arc I'll still keep watching.

Did it look pixelated/extremely jaggied around the mouths and other lines on the characters to anyone else with the 1080 stream ? Just seemed like it was a bad upconversion or something.

Episode 1:


Go Sports!! ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

No, but seriously, these kind of shows remind me those shady ero/porn shows Japan broadcasts really late at night. Ya know... those... ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

But at least the animation was solid, the fanservice is okay and the story is funny so far.

On the other side, you cannot take too seriously a Netero-speed butt slap, LMAO




*whip cracking sound*!!!


Netero approves!! :3


She must have been 10 years on the mountains perfecting her butt. :3

I'll watch it 'cus I was lmao'ing 90% of the show.

Ya clever basterd


Anyway.

Keijo eight exclamation marks, you can do whatever the hell you want and have your fun. However, no one is ever gonna buy that you're a serious sports drama. Just own up to what you're passionate about! Any thinly veiled explaination to show girls hitting each others with their T&A's won't make you look sophisticated, but a little silly in fact.

Or this is a parody anime and that statement from the studio was just part of the joke. Who knows!
