Synopsis

People's lives have changed because of VR and AR, and an competitive sport has born from these technologies called CB (Circlet Bout). CB can be competed between two schools and became an e-sport that decides the wealth of the schools. It also became the real ability of the school, which depends on not just the students' academic skills, but also on the data based on the sport ability, art, skills, etc.

And before someone says: "why Crunchyroll/Funimation/HIDIVE isn't simulcasting this anime?", the problem with this anime is bilibili, a company which is in the top spot of the production commitee. They're blocking the overseas distribution, as they did with Sunohara-sou and Million Arthur.

So, blame bilibili for not making this anime available overseas. And the fact that DMM pictures (a company that IS distributing anime overseas) is in the second spot doesn't help.

Good post ^ I appreciate the info.

The first episode wasn't too bad. I like the future setting, the girls are cute, the new sport seems like it can be pretty interesting (basically an arena fighter) and the animation wasn't as bad as I was expecting. However I can see the animation becoming a train wreck a few episodes in. Hopefully that won't be the case. The story will probably be pretty predictable, but whatever I like it.

Circlet Princess EP # 1 Princes Strike

You know every anime season we have an anime that maybe istn't striving to be the best etc but just to entertain and even with all the usual tropes its has caught my attention There'ss enough substance to make it interestring ( Kinda reminds me of Bamboo Blade / Ikki Tousen meets Ghost in the Shell tech )

The future / with its tech is pretty cool

Chikage is cool with her attitude / skills

Yuka Sasaki is visiting Toyko / is lost but then follows an ad for Circle Bout and accidently activates a giant ad of Chickage who happens to nearby and invites her to watch A MATCH Chickage says wait outside a minute but a mgr comes out thinking Sasaki is a the oppoent for the next match The real one shows up as Chickage come back

Chickage thinks Sasaki lied but she is at first just barely to defend herself but quickly catches on even landing a perfect block but hickage goes to advance mode and says we will continue later

Sasaki changes schools so she compete in Circle Bout but there is none ( or disbanded ) at the moment

A tech Wiz Ayumi and Miyuki ( all around athlete ) want to rivie the club which at one time the best

They try to recruit Sasaki but not for now / later Sasaki moves into the same dorm as the duo Ayumi was watching the recent Circle Bout match and is shocked to see its Sasaki who drew a tie against Chickage

OP is good Heat / Moment by Miyuki Hashimoto
