Excellent Sports Anime
Really enjoyed this well-made anime on Volleyball, I didn't know much about the sports and its rules, didn't realize so much strategy went into it and how important team play is. The plot is your typical shounen sports stereotype, an underdog who excels with determination, along the way he makes friends and each one in the team is a standout specialist. The anime is well-paced and keeps things exciting all throughout, there is lots of humor to give you big laughs. The storytelling utilizes the full spectrum of emotions from losses to win, from giving up to never giving in, from timidity to overconfident, from solo play to teamwork, it covers each aspect of the gameplay with relevant emotions. Another good side to the anime is the realistic gameplay, no over the board plays, and super moves. The characters are all likable, one of the few anime without having any evil guy in it.
The anime itself is really good, got great art and colors. Did feel the music could have been better, nothing of it stands out in mind after a week of watching the anime.
It was enjoyable enough for Binge-watch, so hopefully, you get the idea. Season 1 & 2 both were great, after a break of 2 years, I have binged watched Season 3 & Part 1 of Season 4 also, again they were really good.
