Hey guys, how’s it going? Rahul here coming in with a brand new blog. It’s been a while. Yes, my first semester is over in college (it was a short semester) and it’s safe to say that I had plenty of time to blog but didn’t do anything. But, now that I’ve been able to adjust to the place better and make a ton of friends, I can safely say that from now on I will be back to blogging a bit more frequently. So, let’s begin.
As an avid sports anime lover, deciding to put all the other anime in my list aside to watch one about basketball was a no-brainer. And while I wasn’t expecting a “Kuroko No Basket” kind of amazing anime, I certainly did come into this with certain expectations. And, it has truly been a worth it experience.
Firstly, Ahiru No Sora is genuinely “Basketball Haikyuu”. And by that I mean the main plot line is an exact copy of the Haikyuu plot line. We have a new student who was not able to play basketball in is previous school. This new student is too short for a sport made for tall people but still plays like an absolute boss. And, both Sora and Hinata have the same love-for-their-sport energy.
The story is bland. To put it straight, I don’t see this anime excelling in terms of a good plot line because of how basic the story line is. By copying the plot line for Haikyuu you have automatically put yourself up for comparison against the number one sports anime. This anime 3 episodes in has not shown me much in terms of a story line and that has really brought my expectations down for an amazing fan base to be formed.
But, by far the number one best part of this anime are the basketball matches. From the animation quality to the skill moves to the anticipation, this anime really puts efforts into portraying nail biting matches. It is a ton of fun to watch and I can’t wait to see how the characters develop into bigger and better players and present to us bigger and better matches.
The animation quality of this anime is good and the opening and ending songs are good ones as well. I’m really excited to see how this anime plans out in future episodes!
