Shakunetsu no Takkyuu Musume – 01 (First Impressions)

The Gist: Imagine your drunk pervy uncle got extra drunk and made an anime about sweaty girls playing table tennis. The protagonist is an approval junkie and narcissist who wants to take her second rate high school to the regionals. Unfortunately, a new girl has transferred in and is probably better than everyone.

SnTM’s illustration style is primitive, with washed out color and mediocre animation. There are a few good angles, and making the girls actually sweat in exertion is a nice touch, but those potato-faces are pretty unappealing to look at.

The humor style isn’t great either, combining a few ‘look boobs’ jokes with absurd situations like… a girl stuck on the school gate. Nothing imaginative nor funny.

The Verdict: The protagonist is entirely unlikable and the bashful transfer who kicks butt is annoyingly bashful. Without anyone to root for, without even decent artwork, sound, nor an interesting story, there is no reason to watch this show.
