    Good news is, the director confirmed at Anime Expo that this will have 24 episodes. Trust me, you don't wanna miss out. As per the feedback regarding its exclusive 2 episode premier at Anime Expo, the way they animated the dance sequences are stellar. You can't resist those eyebrows.

    The previews I saw really made it look funny and the possibility of believable hardships the characters would have to overcome. It's on my list to watch sometime this week... hopefully haha.

    Finally got around to watching and I really enjoyed the first episode, hopefully the pacing will continue like this. I wasn't a fan of the songs chosen for the OP and ending, however they do fit the show, I just don't care them. The ending artwork is very pretty song is blah though.

    There is something unusual about the exaggerated movements when they dance and it reminds me of an older style of animation but I can't place it.

    I likely wouldn't have paid much attention to this, had one of my friends not said how much he enjoyed the manga, but it was a pleasant surprise, being somewhat livelier than I'd expected from the subject matter. The spikey art style works well to accentuate the dancers' movement and, amusingly, the character dynamic has something of the super robot show about it.

    Also, having been a feeling a bit low when I sat down to watch this, it genuinely made me feel better, which is nice.

    Episode 2 comes out on Sunday. Plus I think the release schedule has been shifted from Fridays to Sundays now.

    Another absorbing episode. Sengoku best character. Would be great if we got a few scenes from his pre-professional period.

    This show is so great, its like a cross between Haikyuu, Hajime no ippo and a spice of Yuri on ice. Its the only new show of this season im watching right now because im wrapping up all last seasons stuff, but I saw a clip randomly and just got sucked in right away. Its definitely gonna be hard to top this show for this season (besides continuation of MHA) so I see it already being my favourite new summer show.

    Finally got caught up.

    The pacing is very nice for this show, episode 3 was awesome, loved how pissed Hyoudou became. Tatara's waltz really lit a fire under his ass and gave him a new reason to dance.

    I am looking foreward to a Kaname back story, hopefully there will be one.

    I want to watch it, but I'll wait until all of the episodes are out. That way I don't have to wait for the next episode...

    I saw a clip where some guy (I think the MC?) was punched in the gut.

    Right anime, or nah?
