    Cool start. Chatacters remind me of Haikyu!!
    We're already learning about the main characters. There's even a brother sister love in there. Anyways, The red haired guy wants to be the best at Japanese Sumo and was really good in elementary school. Making a comeback by joining a Sumo Club that starts with only 1 member. He keeps getting reminded that you have to actually be tall to be ranked among the best, but that won't stop ...

    Prince of Tennis for sumo
    Super minor spoilers ahead.
    Dropped after 3 eps because it doesn't offer anything new.
    Started strong, but very quickly turned into very generic sports anime.
    Very much in the over the top style of sports anime where trying to flip someone on an angle is now called something like "100 demon smash" and has massive metaphor images.
    Character motivations are questionable, two cases in ...

    Doesnt follow the manga
    i watched the first episode of this and was extremely excited. so naturally not wanting to wait a week i went to the source material. The Manga is extremely good and i would highly recommend the read however that is also where i have a problem. This anime doesn't follow the Manga AT ALL after about halfway from episode 2. Theses are not small changes either, they are completely skipping, ...

  • Seriously Worthwhile
    I was hesitant at first since I'm not a sports anime fan, but I am a huge sumo fan so I thought I'd give it a go and boy did it surprise me. Every episode hypes me up so much, each interaction feels natural and not at all forced, and best of all it represents sumo in such a positive and (almost) true to life fashion.

  • Don't sleep on this one.
    This might be an anime that doesn't appeal to a lot of sports anime fans at first becuase it seems like personalities are a bit shallow at first, and due to the faster pacing. But it has a really good amount of character building while keeping the excitement/fun at a high. Give this anime the 5 episode rule and you wont be disappointed.

  • This anime is really good and match with the manga.
    This anime is really good and match with the manga.
    A o lot of good emotions explode each episode.
    Day by day goods values are shared by all characters.
    it's very sad wait one week to see another chapter.
    Hinomaru it's recommended for the kind of person that never get up the dreams.

  • Glad this was recommended
    Binged through 10 episodes in a couple days because I was hooked right away. Lovable characters and relatable as an ex-athlete. Inspiring individuals and a well rounded team. If an anime makes you want to join a dojo and do sumo you know it's a great show. Can't wait for more episodes!

  • WHY IS THIS ANIME NOT BEING RECOGNIZED?! WATCH IT *NOW* PEOPLE!!!
    This anime is by far the most unique sports anime I’ve ever seen! The visuals, the hard hitting fighting sequences, to the light hearted action comedy.. this anime has everything and then some! Even the characters personalities are so unique instead of the generic anime personalities I’m used to... and the PACING!! Omg... less than 10min into watching each episode makes me feel like I’ve been ...
