Ro Kyu Bu!

With the sudden increase of popularity of Kuroko no Basuke last season that brought out debates comparing Slam Dunk with Kuroko no Basuke, An Idea was made to finally make a second season for the “Not-so” Hit Basketball Anime of 2011, Ro Kyu Bu!. Yes, I’ve had my doubts when i first heard of this other Basketball anime series because the players are elemetary…girls! Lolicon Basketball to be precise!  they can’t dunk but i swear to god its the same basketball we know and love only with more… MOE!

Summary

Subaru, a High School student is asked to coach a elementary girls basketball team.

Story

Ro Kyu Bu! has a very interesting story with Subaru, the main protagonist, having to give up basketball due to his club being suspended because they are saying that subaru had inappropriate feelings for their coach’s daughter which i assume was underage. In the series Subaru was repeatedly called, Lolicon Prince. Next we have the 5 elementary girls that form a Girls Basketball team. each with their own background on why they joined in even though 4 of them had no prior knowledge on basketball.

In the mid part of the series the focus is on the team’s storyline with basketball having to be the focus of everything it is quite the thrill ride having 5 girls like Subaru with every event they’ve been through.

Presentation

In terms of Basketball, it presents more of teaching the characters instead of teaching the audience the basics of basketball unlike in other Basketball Anime Series out there. Since most are beginners in the series, it features the basic fundamentals of a basketball team, each player’s capability, background and skills/developing skills. Games are mostly played for fun and or a practice match since they are just starting out and lack enough players in order to play in tournaments.

For this season, the first season, it is all about the characters, team building? yes i think so. Like in any basketball series the first 12 episodes are the introduction point, where each member gets to be presented to the audience followed by the skill realization of the character then skill building.

Regarding Loli, everybody is loli, Subaru’s Aunt who is a teacher at the school looks like a loli. Its not that i have a problem with that, i’m just saying. Okay not everyone is loli but most are pettanko (Flat-chest).  Also a little bit ecchi, just a little nothing happened nothing got touched once again everything extremely ecchi is happening in your mind and not in the series.

Unrealistic Hair! i know they are cute little elementary girls playing basketball but with long hair that reaches the back of the knees is quite unrealistic. hmmm i thought i have a lot of things to say about their hair but its gone…

Review

Ro Kyu Bu! Cannot be compared to the standards of Slamdunk, Kuroko no Basuke, Buzzer Beater and Dear Boys since its of completely different status. Not only does it differ by “THIS”(I’m holding my arms out to my very reach) much but i am not saying they cannot be  compared! oh wait i did say that… I mean not now, A season 2 is coming up this summer 2013, and I am expecting to meet the 5 new members that will place team Ro Kyu Bu! playing in the tournaments.

Ro Kyu Bu! is a must see specially if you are interested in the second season and or if you are a lolicon. Not only does it have cute jumpshots they also come with a developing romance storyline that seems to be missing in Kuroku no basuke… thats why slam dunk still beats Kuroku no basuke, PEACE!

    Agree, Ro-Kyu-Bu main point is not about basketball itself but the MOEish of the character.

    This Anime only recommended for Pedo Loverz alias Lolicon. Those who hate Lolita just go away 🙂
    Like I said, I’m also Lolicon (not in hentai way) so definitely gonna watch this. 😄

    Since I’m not a lolicon, I just can;t get into this show, especially due to het harem worries.
