Surprisingly, for an anime about female beach volleyball, It is better than I thought it was going to be. While the art is very erotic and sexy, the show itself doesn't seem to fixate on ecchi situations like Kaijo. I could easily see this show dwell deeper into the strategy of the game and some exciting gameplay, we would have to wait and see. The art is very decent and nothing bad seems to stand out. The characters are cute and as I said, very sexy n their bikinis but gladly don't push actual ecchi so I have hope that it'll turn out well.

Episode 1

Wasn't originally planning on watching this one but tried it on a whim. Seems like it could be pretty good, I like the setting and how the two mains relationship is set up.

Someone needs to do something with the mood in this show. Here I was thinking it was gonna be a fun show abot beach volleyball, but instead I'm met by just awkwardness. There was almost not a single conversation where there didn't seem to be lots of tention and awkwardness in the air. It's fine to want to have some tention, but you also gotta let it breathe a little.

I'm amazed at the art work of this show. Despite not only having quick action smort scenes but also being an in your face fan service show, it doesn't get weird or lazy. Big sport names like Haikyu had very scenes that looked very awkward and reused many lazy scenes for its action. I hope it keeps it up as more episodes come in.

This show doesn't let up on its art, Its characters are sexy, the art is beautiful and the physics of the sand, hair, and "everything else" is on point each time.

Episode 5
Spoiler:
It seems like the art had to be toned down this time around in order to keep up with the very active game this time around but I wasn't too bothered by it. The chemistry between the two main characters is now more cemented with one being the brains while the other being the wall during the receiving. The show has hooked me because although they are the main characters, we still are never sure if they will come out on top in the end since they are still fresh as a team compared to their seniors and their skill are comparatively shown this episode to be nowhere near their level.

Episode 5

Spoiler:
Hey Kanata, if the other team isn't going to bother blocking you because they know you're just going to do a pokey maybe mix in a few spikes. I don't even know how many points she cost them that game by not spiking.

Spoiler:
You know what? I get it. The whole time I keep thinking she is going to throw in a spike and just win the whole game with it and she never does. It's not like the show has implied that she can't spike due to her height yet so I still expect her to do it all the time
