I wasn't too impressed with the bits I saw from other tourneys/awards. I doubt this will make me change my mind unless I see essays explaining things I never would've expected from the show.

It's okay Ping Pong Girls didn't make it anyways ;-;

It was just a simple show, that mixed the basics of typical sports and CGDCT anime, that gave off the intensity that you would feel from both genres. For being a low budget show per se, the show (in my opinion) did a great job of executing each episode to build up to the rival matches which were also hype af. Also sexual innuendos and endless doki doki nonsense as well to keep the balance between the sports and CGDCT aspect.

But I do understand why people would not like it, but hey I'm a simple person who is easily entertained <3

I'll be honest, I forgot about it somehow, like Mob 100. Great show. Better than some that made it in for sure.

That right there's pretty much why. The doki doki stuff in particular really got on my nerves, but at the same time I can also understand why people would like it. I mean some of the ping pong wasn't bad, especially the matches where the main character wasn't involved.

I'm not quite the wordsmith like Swaggercandy. But, I'll try a bit.

Scorching Ping Pong Girls crosses the boundaries of sports, cgdct, and even some shonen.

All the girls have a back story to how and why they not only play ping pong, but also explains their play style and techniques.

There is always buildup between matches. There is always drama as well. Certain girls feel they MUST win. But, what happens when they lose? Some girls play for the thrill and to be pushed as far as they can go, but what happens when they break?

Like I said all the girls have their reasons to play and play with intensity, but along side that comes personal growth and a lot of laughs.

The show had me hyped for each match and literally cheering for my favorite girls. Not because of how cute they are, and they are all adorable, but because I got into who they were as a person and a player.

The animation was really cool. The colors are very vibrant and vivid. You can tell the animators put a lot of effort into the ping pong scenes and the action. I like to think they had fun making this show.

I don't know what else to say. I can understand it not being a show some people get into. I typically don't like sports anime. But I don't understand people if they legit hate this show.

The show mixed comedy, drama, character development and sports action very well. I came for the cgdct and I stayed for the super fun ping pong matches.

The instructions imply that we must rank all shows in a group, but this results example suggests that one can choose not to give a ranking to all the shows in a group (that is, you might even give one show a 4 and not rank any other shows in that group -- giving them a "0" basically). Is that correct?

Yes, everyone has to rank all shows within a group, not mix and match.

Easiest. Group. Picks. Ever. Here's a vote.


[Group 1]
Concrete Revolutio [4] - Because it's gonna need it. A maelstrom of different genres collide in a re-written history of the world. Solid conclusion.
KonoSuba [3] - Best comedy in a long time. Crappy animation actually enhances it's appeal. Sper entertaining cast.
Drifters [2] - Fate/Stay Hellsing. Interesting war techniques, solid concept, poor execution.
Saiki [1] - Did not watch.

[Group 2]
ERASED [4] - Time travel murder mystery. 'Nuff said.
Poco's Udon World [3] - Emotional joy trip over a furball.
Morose Mononokean [2] - Tried to pull off a xxxholic. Failed to pull off a xxxholic.
Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto [1] - Not my humor.

[Group 3]
Jojo Bizarre Adventure Part 4 [4] - It's in the name.
Gundam IBO S2 [3] - Most improved.
AssClass 2 [2] - It's in the name. Weak ending. Never captured me like S1.
Planetarian [1] - Decent but not overwhelming. Juuuust below AssClass.

[Group 4]
Natsume S5 [4] - Cause I can't give it a a 5.
Rakugo [3]- Stylish story telling through a an entertaining medium.
Art Club [2] - Funny show, cute.
Girl Online [1] - Also funny, but not quite endearing. Fun twist on things.
