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


Spoiler:
I rather think there is a plan to why Kanata has been doing pokeys all this time. I'm betting on that Kanata is trying to get them tired with the constant pokeys and forcing them to keep returning them.

Also I would like to point out that Kanata could spike but remember in that practice match with the sisters that she was constantly blocked when she spiked the ball.

I know, thats why she started doing pokies but when the other girls started to back off to cunter them, it was the perfect moment to do spikes or even a dump to just let the ball fall close to the net but she instead decided to keep the pokies the whole game.

Episode 6
Spoiler:
I am very satisfied with this show. I like how our doubts from last week were taken and just burned away this episode. It's like the writer of this show was secretly laughing at us, knowing that they knew what they were doing.

Spoiler:
I disagree. Even though Kanata's plan was to tire the short girl out by making her receive all of those pokeys she still should have grabbed those available points by spiking. By spiking she also forces the other girl to try to block her to prevent Kanata spiking again which would also tire her out from having to jump every time Kanata attacked. Kanata poorly executed her plan.

Episode 12
Spoiler:
My final thoughts on this show are that I in the end came out of it lukewarm.What did it do right?
1) It had very enjoyable characters. I loved them all and their chemistry with one another was fun to to watch
2) Great sexy art and expert camera angles. Need I say more?
3) The physics of the characters hair, movements, and "assets" were pleasingly moving. I love that non of the characters ever seem still and specially when the acio was playing, the characters all moved and the physica were always on point.

What did it do bad?
1) As great as the art was, it did have a lot of still shots and you could tell when they took still characters and just moved the background. Kinda like taking a cardboard cut out and moving to location
2)Akari never got a partner. While it wasn't a necessity, having one of the characters not receive a partner and act solely as a tie in for the others felt a little imp=complete.
3) The big game that we were waiting for between the Harukana tema and the AyuNara team never got into the show. I know this is because they had too few episodes to work with so they had to cut it out but when you have something like that be the end goal for the show, not having it is a little lackluster.

In the end I did love the show and if it gets a second season to complete the story, then I can call it a perfect anime but until then it is a show that is missing a big part the is necessary for me to recommend it to anyone.
