First Episode Review for: Ginga-e-Kickoff
Summary : A lad who loves Football (soccer) but can’t play it for toffee is the last person on a dissolved team and starts the hunt to make a new team.
Animation : Slightly washed out single tone cell animation, nothing partially wrong with it but a bit “low rent”
Plot Potential: This looks like another underdogs rise to meet the challenge job,
Characters: Strangely enough given that I was not enjoying this anine (I hate football), the characters were not that bad, the main character was the weakest of them
Music: The opening theme was quite rousing, with low key stirring music in the back ground throughout
Reminds me of: A much naffer (or comedy version) of Knight in the Area
Overall: I made it though this anime teeth gritted, there is nothing hugely wrong in it, but the subject matter combined with the lack of anything outstanding makes it in my opinion one to miss
