And another show I am surprised is over and stopped somewhere in the middle just like Sket Dance (which seems to be a new old trend coming back to live).
So what to say about this show. Its by nowhere good in the sense of it doing anything right.
The worst point first, the comedy. It totally sucked and almost made me drop it in the beginning and never got any better.
The football itself wasnt that much better with a lot of shoots beeing totally ridiculous (for example Kakerus Phi Trick which wouldnt ever work in reality), but thats the norm for football animes.
Characterwise wasnt good either. A lot of characters were totally annyoing (for example Araki, Da Silva, Mai, Nadeshikos coach) and the ones who were not didnt get enouhg screentime,for example Nana or Ishiki. Ok Nana got a lot of screentime but there she always just did the same sadly.
Characterdevelopment was none. The stuff with Kakerus brother was done with quickly and they never really got into Mai loving Kakeru, while he loves Nana which wouldve been interesting to see how it develops. For the other characters there was none either.
Animation was pretty bad without any details and sloppy faces. At least most girls and woman were beautiful so was sufficient-
Overall this show has done so many things wrong and nothing right, but despite all that I still enjoyed it because of who knows why. My guess is because of two reasons, beein football and Nana.
Rating this one is really hard because its a bad anime but I enjoyed it. Guess I will go with a 6/10.
