    Not one to usually review, but had to add my two cents
    I enjoy sports and slice of life anime.

    I like them for the emotional connections made to the characters. More than any other anime style, this one just gets me. The first I watched was Chihayafuru, then Saki, then Baby Steps, Yowamuchi Pedal, Haikyu!, and others....

    Anyway my point is I have seen my share of similar anime, so far I am willing to suggest to others that if you like this ...

    No week is complete without watchin' my Hefty Boys
    Good Anime For Good People about good hefty boys being good and gettin' their stronk on. Starts off strong, and much like the likeable cast, keeps getting bigger and stronger. This is a great sports anime that will leave you smiling and feeling a better person for having watched it. 5/5 sumo-pets of the cute fat cat.

    Hakkeyoi, Hinomaru!!!
    the new adaptation of the manga has been done really well - hinomaru is very likable, show seems to have some genuine heart. isn't nearly as grating to watch as rowdy sumo wrestler matsutaro. now, if crunchyroll would pick up ah! harimanada you'd have all your sumo anime covered. but, so far, hinomaru is already the best sumo anime i've ever seen

    Absolutely Amazing! 350+ 5 stars on Ep 1
    This is one of the best anime I've watched in years. It has spirit, it has quality animation, great music, great voice actors with plenty of emotion. Manly as can be. I grew muscles just watching this. I CAN TAKE ON THE WORLD! That is how this anime makes me feel. SPIRIT.

    The premise is taken seriously with just enough "anime flair" to make the series exciting for the viewer. It has that ...

    Pumped up for this kind of anime
    Sports anime with soul, excitement and also lots of unique characters. It's all you could hope for in a sports anime. It takes itself seriously enough and is on par with other greats like Haikyuu!, Prince of Tennis and Kuroko no basket. If you want developement through training and intense fights this is for you.

    WOW a more than good anime
    Before i do this review i want to say that i rarely take the time to write these. However, I must say that this anime really out did itself considering it has just started. The first episode already had a crazy scene that proved the main characters worthiness to all other characters. I cant wait and want more

    Good feels and great action
    This show is really something else. I am really excited to see where this all ends up. A guy who has always been told he is to short to compete in sumo contends to become one of the greatest of all time. Instead of ending up at the school he wanted where sumo is respected he ends up in a school where sumo is looked down upon and aims to change their minds.
