In a post-apocalyptic world set a thousand years after our era, the remaining humans, now with telekinesis, live in a seemingly peaceful society, but dark secrets of the past will soon be discovered by a small group of friends.
This is one of the most underrated anime . Don't go by the name. It is less about Ping Pong and more about life as you get older. The character development was very unique. Most of the people avoid this masterpiece because of it's unappealing animation. For me, even the animation was more like sketches brought to life. The animation works perfectly for the Ping Pong action and our imagination.While some of you may be turned off by the animation, I challenge you to give it a try nevertheless. It would be a shame to miss out on an anime as well done as this just because of artistic reasons. The music was excellent too, specially the ending song. I assure you that you will be surprised after finishing this chef-d'oeuvre.
