  • Very Underrated anime
    I was looking for something new and and saw SUMO... and figured why not. Well the story line are somewhat predictable, but the animators and voice actors were really able to convey the spirit and passion of the characters extremely well. The battles are what took me by surprise the most. I could feel myself at the edge of my seat during the matches and my heart sunk a few times when a loss was ...

  • Move over Hajime no ippo!
    I'm suprised by how much I'm enjoying this anime, I don't usually go out of my way to watch sport related anime. I enjoy the fact that in the first couple of episodes are dedicated to getting new members while also providing info about sumo, and clearing up misconception ppl might have of sumo. It kind of gives me a different view point on the sport. If you are a fan of Hajime no ippo, I think you ...

  • Hinomary Sumo is Unique
    they chose sumo out of all sports and i really love that! the characters are different in there own way and that's cool. i really can't wait to see more anime's enjoy or have sumo into it instead of the same old sports. Kei is a little bean and he's my favorite uwu

  • A great addition to the genre
    If you're like me who enjoys the sports anime genre regardless of the sport then Hinomaru Sumo will not disappoint you. Many great moments and well paced. It also goes beyond high school sumo to show us a little of what a professional sumo's life is like. Wish it could've been longer but always appreciative of a series that leaves out filler episodes.

  • Dopest sumo I've ever sumo'd
    Sports anime about sumo. Its a great ride about overcoming hardships to evolve as a wrestler. Dope action, dope execution, solid characters and plotline was engrossing enough to keep me wanting more every week. I loved how it got me into caring about sumo as an art.

  • This was definitely worth the view!
    I admit... never been one for sports anime, however this one caught me and kept my attention. This is definitely one of the best ones out there and I absolutely love it!! Binge it, take your time with it, watch a few then leave and come back. It doesn't matter! You will cheer on Odachi High and love these characters.

    Hinomaru Sumo: A case study on how not to do a sports anime
    Hinomaru Sumo was... an interesting watch. In a high school where one lonely chungus trains by himself in the ways of sumo, our main character Hinomaru finds himself infatuated with the singled out sumo's passion for practicing. As expected, the MC joins the club in an attempt to reinvigorate a club while having goals of becoming the best high school sumo team, getting a rag tag group of ...

    Who had thought Sumo could be this good!
    If you had told me 12 weeks ago I would be watching a Sumo anime I would have laughed. However this caught me VERY early on, great development of the characters and a gift at somehow getting me fired up every single goddamn week during the episodes.

    I would DEFINITELY watch this if you are into sports anime and even if you aren't, I guarantee this will keep you hooked throughout the entire ...

  • Sports anime at best
    I cannot start with this show, just finish the season and let me say it is one of its own kind of feels. Emotional, Character, fight scene development has a unique way of making you feel like you are in the sumo ring. MUST WATCH FOR ALL SPORT ANIME LOVERS

  • A Great Surprise For Me
    I don't usually watch sports anime, but heard good things and decided to try this one. Was not disappointed, it delivered throughout and even had a quality ending unlike most shows. The cast is all very likeable, the music is great, the action was put out in good doses...overall a great show I'd recommend to anyone.
