    Your Childhood now in HD!
    This show has the same feel and style of art as those old shows from your childhood but better. It is in great quality. The story(from the first episode and the Synopsis) is very interesting. The characters are hilarious. This anime is love at first sight.

    3 episodes in... it is exactly like "Ore wa Teppei" except with sumo rather than kendo.
    Not a bad thing, but it is exactly "Ore wa Teppei" except newer and slight differences. That is fairly common for shows to do... but whatever... I am still watching it.

    "Ore wa Teppei" was definitely more extreme in some sense, like cruder, and this is more over-the top.

    Rough start but good
    I will admit I didn't like the first 2 episodes but I understand they were needed to set up the character of Matsutaro. Once the actual sumo work starts it becomes interesting as Matsutaro begins to grow as a person and in this own rough way bonds with the other sumo at his stable. I have actual started to watch real sumo thanks to this.

    Too unbearable to watch
    This is one anime where I can guarantee you will want to drop immediately.

    There is no way I can Exaggerate how unlikable the MC is. He is One of the worst you will ever see and never gets any better. If you are looking for something to watch or are just bored, you will do good to just skip this and watch ANYTHING else

    Definitely worth the watch
    The MC is a bit annoying at times and you want him to start behaving but, he grows on you. And that is a theme that comes up in the show as well. Not to mention you can see his progression, albeit a slow progression.....a very...slow..progression, into an actual sumo wrestler. He has his own style and flair but deep down you can see hes a good guy.

    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 ...

    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 ...
