Interesting
3 August 2017 | by bananaandpieSee all my reviews

This show was entertaining and cute, but went on for way too long. I don't care much for the characters, but I don't dislike them. I feel like one season or one book was enough. Yeah, the story is interesting, but most of it is just playing tennis. It's cheesy and all of it's conflict and excitement so far is "who's gonna win??" The animation is okay (same goes for New Prince of Tennis) and the characters aren't bad looking. However, there are as many characters as there are episodes. It's so long, I had to drop it soon. It's not terribly written, I can imagine others enjoying it enough to watch the entire thing. The voice acting is flawless and the music is really good. I will definitely continue to listen to POT's soundtrack, though most of it will go untouched by me...each of the millions of characters has like, what? Five albums each? I'm only really interested in a handful of songs, anyways.
