    I never saw this coming!
    First of all i have to admit that i'v never been a fan of any sports animation/movie. They tend to always annoy me with their cliché progression and monotone script. I actually started watching this out of pure boredom when i could not sleep one day and boy did i not expect this!

    The art direction threw me of instantly, it took me back to some horrible animation memories like "beavis and ...

    Truly, the hidden gem of this generation of anime
    Never have I felt characters more relatable than the whole ensemble of Ping Pong. I have seen this anime about 30 times now, tonight it will be 31. It is a show that should be watched over and over. It is a show that motivates me to carry on. It is a show that teaches me to believe in myself. It is a show that teaches me to have fun.

    It is a tragedy many will ignore the show because of its off ...

    One of my favorites for sure
    I initially dropped this show while it was airing after episode 1. I couldn't get into it, the art style was weird and I thought it just felt clunky. After a while I decided to have another go at it out of boredom and decided to watch it with no expectations. I wasn't looking for the art style or tropes of typical sports anime anymore and I realized how wrong I was about it. Ping Pong brings so ...

    An overlooked work of genius
    This is, without hyperbole, one of the greatest sports stories told in any medium. Yet, underneath the story of what it means to dedicate yourself to a sport, this is an anime about being human and the repercussions of living in a highly competitive world. It is also a brilliantly observed character study.

    Don't be put off by the art style. By the end of the series, you will come to see its ...

    Great story with fresh style.
    Before watching this anime I had seen the movie Ping Pong(2002) but I never read the manga. The movie wasn't bad at all but this anime better. The story is deep enough to drown in. The animation style is fresh & interesting. There is a lot of fast paced animated action that is beautifully cut. I might be a sucker for sports anime but I would still HIGHLY recommend this anime to anybody. It's not ...

    Ping Pong has never been so exciting!
    My brother recommended this anime to me after he had watched it, saying that it was one of the best shows he had ever watched. I'm not really into sports anime but he was so excited about Ping Pong the Animation that I thought to myself "Hey, why not check it out then?". And WOW do I not regret it one bit! This show is so much fun, with awesome characters, a great story and a godly soundtrack. To ...

    I could watch this over & over.
    "Ping Pong: The Animation" is probably perhaps one of the few series out there that left me inspired & moved by it's story. Whether you're into sports or not, there's a few good reasons as to why i'd recommend it. Being an art junkie myself, that was the main reason that drew me into giving it a try & the rest was more than enough to finish it.

    The art doesn't even feel like what ...

    Original, fresh and enjoyable
    The characters are realistic as well as the setting. I love the artstyle of the show, and it is refreshing to watch. Everything is clean and well drawn and the exteriors and backdrops are just as alive as the characters. All in all a great show and its definitely recommended! I hope Crunchyroll embraces this series.
