People who like sports, sweat, and suffering. Whole thing really felt like a ping pong version of Saki.

Also the OST for this show was surprisingly one of the best that season. Listened to the OP every episode.
>>
1389 people.

Saki is about powerlevels and mahjong mindfuckery.

Sounds about right

>>152474227
The author was a player too, that's why the "powers" are all based on real table tennis technique and not just lesbian magic, but their target demographic is obviously more than just bing bongers, the appeal of the show is pretty wide if you ask me. It's hard to pin it down as anything less broad than "sports shounen".

People with good taste in anime.

>>152472983
Not me. I like the art and the girls, but the whole "This really lame sport is super hardcore!" thing is stupid and uninteresting.
>>
>>152474273
Let's not kid ourselves, it's mostly about lesbians.

It's as if you really hate fun.

Then give me real ping-pong, not some sort of over-dramatized, childish recreation of it. You can do sports anime well without flashy moves to catch the appeal of action-addicts.
>>
>>152478356
>i have never watched ping pong in the olympics
>>
>>152478799
The anime is actually pretty faithful to the game compared to most sports anime. It has a bunch of explanations of how different rackets, strokes and playing styles work and the characters all play with strategies centered around real aspects of the game. What else do you want? See 20 consecutive minutes of them doing nothing but pinging and ponging the ball back and forth? If I want to watch real ping pong I'll watch real ping pong.

Hi welcome to fiction.

>>152478799
They already made the anime literally entitled Ping Pong for that.

People who love fun anime and I am one of them.

The show pretty much made me interested in actual ping pong, currently learning how to play with a friend.

Pretty much an opposite effect to Ping Pong the Animation, which made me think this game really isn't for me.

A subset of Saki fans who need more sweaty action...

... in other words, less than 50 people worldwide.

>>152473958
I hated all of those and loved Ping Pong Girls

BING BONG

Because it wasn't for Saki fans.
It lacked everything that made Saki good, the only common point was the lesbians.

I do enjoy Saki (achiga-hen not as much) but I enjoyed shakunetsu better.

I do agree they are different though, shakunetsu matches are more hotblooded and shounen battle-like with the winner yelling his way into victory and the loser growing through defeat, while in Saki they are more focused on the abilities themselves and how they clash with each other with twists and traps until there is a winner.
>>
>>152486793
I can see where you're coming from, yeah. For me, ponging girls just didn't click, no matter how much I tried.
Although I like Shinohayu more than main Saki at this point, really.
