    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 ...

    nothing short of a masterpiece
    ping pong the animation is a phenomenal piece of art bursting with life.
    a captivating commentary on competition, friendship, childhood, and individuality, the story is sewn together with outstanding flair.
    incredibly fun but genuine; an absolute must-watch.

    I'm late to the game but this anime was worth the wait
    Okay so, I'm sports anime trash. Haikyuu is my fave, but I've seen a lot of them, and sports anime is by far my favorite genre. I'd heard this anime was good, but I never got around to watching it for what, four years? Oops. Anyway, I figured I'd give it a go since like I said, I adore sports anime, and once I saw the five star rating I had high hopes for this show.

    I was not ...

    Unfathomably Good in Every Way Possible
    Ping Pong the Animation I started watching because it was recommended to me by a friend. I'm still a bit new to anime and the community, so I haven't really learned to adapt to new art styles, so when I first saw the character design I found it odd. Now that I've finished the series I've realized that I found it odd because there is absolutely nothing like it. Most animation specific anime (from ...

    Masterpiece. We are all alive.
    Ping Pong the Animation is one of my top 3 anime shows of all time. The show revolves around table tennis, but it is not really about details of the sport, because this show is all about the characters. This quite possibly the best cast of characters I've seen in anime besides shows like Cowboy Bebop, Hunter x Hunter, and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju. We find each character at a different point in ...
