Lol no, and I like tennis and I like this anime. It's the same old "introduction to a sport" anime starring an MC who's sole purpose is to act as a liaison between the ignorant viewer and the sport, who then inexplicably and unrealistically becomes a master of the sport. It's formulaic as hell, Sports Anime 101.

I liked CrossGame better, Touch is good but lacks direction.
Also the characters were much more fleshed out, even the secondary characters like that fatty that got together with the track n field qt.

Cross Game is for 6 year olds. Touch was better, as was almost everything else Adachi did

>>160250703
>lacks direction.
Touch is extremely direct, though. There's a clear goal the entire time, even if it does change MCs.
Also it has some pretty iconic scenes. Actually Touch is probably the most well known/popular sports TV series in Japan. The manga was extremely popular too, but I think Slam Dunk sold more?

I would like Saki more if the matches weren't solved by magical bullshit luck and would actually have some decision making and discussions about what they think and are planing to do, sort of like how Akagi does it. Albeit I only watched the first series and not Nationals, so for all I know it could have gotten better.
