The magnificent ten.
This time around, im on purpose picking up a strong / good score anime. I heard abit about the anime since the writer of the novel also write a novel about another anime that i watched recently.
This anime is a sports anime, but not the traditional shounen type who focused on intense competition or using some quirky ability to beat their opponents. Since the setting is around college / university, definitely this anime will be more mature in the general. It all started from a simple goal of our protagonist to be the best runner. However, he was greeted by weird senpai who wanted to create a team of runner from all of the dorm tenants. It is seem in the beginning as everyone isnt fit and lack of motivation.
As we go every episodes, the wacky / weird setup will be toned down and the story focused more on character driven. We will learn why everyone is who they are and it is their goals to be bonding to eachother to become the best team and beat the competition. Studio that made this anime (production I.G) is already well known in deliver quality anime, while i think perfect for this series as it is more toward realistic story & artstyle. While the story might be slow, this fit nicely as it dive into the struggle of each main casts.
If you like character driven seinen tags, this is probably of rare sports anime you can get. I personally felt hyped while watching it that me wanted to be better and reach my goals.
