    That missed goal tilted me into oblivion.

    Prolly a pseudo-rift in Kazama and Tsukamoto's friendship in the latest episode? Hope so.

    Tsukamoto finally getting his shit together and acting the part. Hope he can play it out there as well. The second season has really turned this series around.

    What the hell is the ref doing? That was a red card dammit.

    Tsukamoto is finally becoming a manly soccer player. This show and Yuri on ice are my favorite shows airing right now, and I feel like I should be ashamed for feeling that way xD. March Comes in like a Lion is also really good. BUT TSUKAMOTO IS JUST PURE DETERMINATION. SEISEKI FIGHT!!

    And today marks the day I truly fell in love with this show

    The comedy is so great at times

    I lost it when Tsukamoto's initial reaction to scoring the goal was apologizing to the Seiken players. So gold. For a moment I thought he was trolling the opposition. HAHA.

    Tsukamoto is adorable. I'm really enjoying this show.

    I'd say the blossoming friendship between Kazama and Tsukushi is fulfilling to watch.

    Tsukamoto= N'golo Kante

    The N'golo Kante reference? He's a Chelsea player who runs a lot too and plays a similar role to what Tsukamoto is playing in the team now. The only difference is Kante's class and doesn't suck.

    Damn, its Mizuki and Co. last year. Well, to the Nationals then.

    Ooshiba and Kimishita meet, comedy gold ensues.

    At last, I got some free time for anime this quarter. I decided I'd give DAYS a chance since I'm fond of a few sports anime.

    Yes, this route for sports anime has been done dozens of time. And yes, it can get pretty bland. But I'm a schmuck for these--they're really good motivators xD

    I'm on episode 3 as I typed this post and so far the usual sports anime elements are there. I don't mind it at all, but I'm hoping for sufficient character progression. At least not at the pace of Eyeshield 21's.

    @StrawHats

    Stick with it till the first season for sure (that's like the first 12 episodes).

    That won't be hard, I'm already liking the first 5. At least he's not a total wimp--he's got balls.

    EDIT:
    I just finished watching episode 12 and I think it's a decent set up for the rest of the show. I'm hoping it doesn't have a rushed ending. Hooked.

    Not rushed but I'm guessing they'll end it before a certain tournament and we'd have to continue on with the manga. Unless we get 24 episodes more. No I don't think MAPPA is that rich or mad.

    Yeah including the opponents', literally.

    This semi-final game should be really good.

    Without Kazama, Mizuki, and Ooshiba, I'm guessing they'll focus on defense. But I see it now--Kimishita and Tsukamoto are going to pull off a jaw-dropping goal.

    We'll prolly get to see a more dangerous side of Kimishita from his early days, the goalscorer.

    Episode 21: THAT CURVE

    I mean, that's in the same level of bullet curving Wanted-style xD Reminds me of Beckham's free kicks from when he was still in Manchester U.

    So again, the episode ends with an edge-of-the-seat-cliffhanger.
    Will it hit the post again?!

    Damn, 1 more episode of the semi final. I hope they don't cut the final match short in the last episode.

    Another spectacular free kick. Based on my general anime knowledge, they must win this one. Now we wait how they win.
