New Anime Series- Knight in the Area

First Episode Review for: Knight in the Area

Summary : A lad who is the token manager in a Japanese schools football club and who lives in the shadow of his gifted brother struggles with a past trauma, enter a female childhood friend who can also play football

Animation : Presentable but a bit flat

Plot Potential: Well judging from the horrors that real football players get up to, there should be plenty of material and add to it a bit of full on sibling rivalry

Characters: The main character is a bit winy and his brother is a bit of an ass but they are reasonably well rounded and looks like there will be plenty of growth

Music: Not bad, quite dramatic and upbeat in the right places

Reminds me of: A naffer Prince of Tennis

Overall: Groan, I cant do it i just cant like a football based anime, it feels like a betrayal to sully anime with that bladder kicking horror that pollutes all life, in the spirit of being fair I tried to compare it with Price of tennis which has just started a new series and even then its not much fun, sorry there is nothing wrong with it from an anime series but i wont be watching it, ick
