    An honest review for an Anime with too much hate.
    Many people are looking at this anime in the WRONG way. They are thinking that all our heroes have to be good or nice. Matsutaro is NOT a role model but it is an interesting watch to see how a man like Matsutaro acts in his role.

    the idea that a man like Matsutaro would change overtime (Indeed you see a small bit) is interesting to see if it happens but what makes him unlikable is his attitude, ...

    Great art and setting, mediocre characters and plot
    This show has a very nice art style that I haven't seen anywhere else in modern anime. It feels very old-school and somewhat reminds me of old Soviet cartoons. It fits extremely well with the show's setting. So does the opening song, which I absolutely adore.

    Plot-wise, I'll have to commend the series for not following the "weakling in high-school sports club has to become awesome" formula that ...

    Not Everyone's Cup of Tea, but a Rare Gem, nonetheless
    Though the main character, Matsutaro, is truly unlikable as a person, that's what makes this anime so much fun. Imagine if you were a young man growing up with no male role-model, raging appetites and a body with unlimited strength. How would you behave if you hadn't been raised with any limits?

    I think that I would be just like Matsutaro, belligerent, willful, arrogant and otherwise ...

    Needs better characters
    It's an alright show. I feel the main character might be mentally handicapped though. It seems to be more of a show about an adult man with the mentality of a child then a show about sumo. It's almost unbearable to watch at points as you are thinking that one person simply can't be as terrible as the main character. Some kind of mental handicap or learning disability that is never properly ...

    Matsutaro grows on you...
    I have to agree with the reviewers who commented on the main characters lousy character. He's a spoiled, stupid, thoughtless bully, which really comes through right up to the Homecoming episode. In the Homecoming episode, we begin to see a change. In the next few episodes he reverts to type but the hints of a character change are there. I'm trying not leave a spoiler here but soon after he ...

  • I liked it better when it was called "Of Mice and Men"
    I don't think I can defend this show. I know Toei can be hit or miss but I really wanted to like this one. The only reason this gets two stars instead of one (because there's no option for zero) is because the supporting characters are great. throughout the series you really start rooting for these characters and want the best for them and even some of the rougher characters start to grow on you. ...

  • Fun to watch, starts a little slow
    Love watching this anime. It's very unusual and makes for a unique anime to watch. It starts slow but, after the first few episodes it gets into it and then i was hooked. It's got a mix of sport action with a bit of comedy, and a little taste of romance comedy thrown in.

  • Too painful to watch
    The main character is such a dirt bag that I lost any interest in this show. You'd think he'd grow up at some point, but no, he just keeps on being a selfish, lazy jerk. I generally like sports shows and I was excited to see one about sumo, but the main character of this show just ruins it. I can't even bring myself to like the main character let alone cheer for him, and that by itself makes ...

    Entertaining and enjoyable.
    A truly entertaining story about an overly energetic and aggressive adolescent who leaves school to become a sumo wrestler. It is a very interesting journey he takes from the school to the sumo ring, and that's only the beginning, I highly recommend this anime to anybody who is interesting in learning more about sumo and fancies a laugh at the same time. Therefore i give this a rating of 9/10.
