Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. Hope everyone’s weeks are going amazing! I have tons of anime blogs just stacked up that I need to get to! So let’s begin the review!
This sport anime was written by Shiori Amase and was aired in October, 2016.
No. of episodes: 25
- Kenji Gion

- Takuya Sekizan
- Mutsumi Hachiōji

A lot more but they’re really not that important.
The story takes place in High School Jinko where the rugby team seems to be lacking in all aspects. But with a group of new first-years and a new coach, their aim is to change that around and reach the nationals and win! Thus begins a series of games, training and practice!
I for one love sports anime. They just give a completely different feel compared to other anime’s. I saw this anime while it was going and like any other sports anime, it was just a lot of suspense to cope up with in one week i.e. in most episodes, not all of course. I love how the story developed around one guy but the story wasn’t focused around ‘that’ one guy. The anime is very ‘to the point’. The opening and ending songs are really good. What really interests me is how every character had their own back story and personality in the anime and the writers have stressed on their lives too, not only of the protagonist’s. There is a hint of comedy in the anime and the matches are honestly very interesting. I have never played or seen rugby but I guess they knew that their audience was gonna be those kind of people and so they kind of explained the rules of rugby in the anime as well. There were a patch of episodes that were quite boring but that wasn’t really a problem. The ending episodes were really awesome. Honesty, this anime is jam packed with entertainment! I would highly recommend to watch this anime. I can’t wait for season 2 of this anime. Overall good!
I would give this anime 3.5/5 stars.
