Our Review : The anime is enjoyable, and there are definitely laugh out loud moments. Many episodes are clumped together and can cut matches off in the middle. There are cliffhangers at the end of episodes. There are episodes unrelated to tennis, but many are. You however DO NOT have to be a fan of the sport to watch this anime. At first, you will think that this is just about with the tournaments,, matches and stuffs but actually, there is a twist in the end that is somewhat related to the past of Echizen. But this anime is not for everyone likes.
