All right! While I bring up some more shmup 1ccs, I bring you my first anime episode review and opinion, and here is Ro-Kyu-Bu!
What happens when you bring five cute and moe girls into the basketball field and have them coach by a high school boy? Well, you can guess it from this series.
The very first episode of the show introduces us to Subaru, a high school student who plays basketball and was assigned to be a coach at an elementary school, as well as the five cute elementary girls who are aspiring to become basketball players, namely Tomoka, Maho, Saki, Airi and Hinata. We are also introduced to Subaru’s aunt Mihoshi as well, who is also quite cute but don’t let her appearance fool you. She is going to expose Subaru’s secret if he could not train the girls within three days.
The curtain opener of the series turned out to do well, but it almost certainly spoiled us on what would be the aftermath from the what happened in the beginning of the show. The opening appearance of the girls were certainly cute, dressed up in maid clothes, but later dressed up in jersey clothes. It also showed us that Subaru’s basketball team were disbanded for a year, and coaching made him return to the basketball scene again. For some reason, Airi used to be the tallest of the bunch.
The funniest parts in this episode are the bathroom scene and Mihoshi’s neko ears when she pops out of Subaru’s room, which is quite funny. A fun way to start off the basketball girl anime series. But remember, height is JUST a number.
