    The story takes place in Okinawa, where Haruka forms a beach volleyball pair with Kanata. Kanata, who couldn't handle the pressure put on her by her short height, had given up on beach volleyball already but is convinced by Haruka to step back on the sand once again and aim for the junior tournament.​

    I'm surprised Hanebado got so much attention, but this one hasn't even gotten a thread.

    It's got some solid visuals and great looking character designs. There hasn't been a lot of volleyball aspect so far but mostly because it was a play match with some far superior opponents.

    It is. The character designs remind me a bit of Keijo, but with their own unique coloring to them.

    Well, that was nice and pleasant.

    Well, Hanebado did featured these beauties in the opening minutes:


    Took a while for this to get to the goods.

    I found another piece of official art for a team that didn't show up in ep 1



    There's likely one somewhere for the main duo.

    First episode was pretty boring, and the rest of the story doesn't seem like it will be exciting either.

    I'm just staying for the fanservice tbh.

    Yeah, pacing in this episode was really slow, which ironically makes something that should be exciting really unexciting. I'll see how it proceeds after another few episodes but I have a feeling Hanebado will satisfy all my sexy sport waifu needs for this season.

    Ep 2 get.

    I'm getting some not-quite-explicit yet not-quite-subtle Yuri NTR vibes from Narumi. Like they go out of their way to call Kanata her Ex, and you can see that she's still hung up over her. Then along comes Haruka, the bigger, brighter and bustier bombshell bimbo. And in less than a week, she has Kanata doing sick, scandalous shit she was too afraid to even attempt with Narumi.

    And it all ends with Narumi in tears - over Kanata's smile. And while Ayase is there to console her, she's probably feelin worse. Though she caught Narumi on the rebound, they still became champions, together. Earlier, she light-heartedly expressed her fears of Narumi ditching her for Kanata if given the chance, and those fears were probably made all the more real seeing her partner emotionally broken there on the sand.

    I didn't even know Yuri NTR was a thing :maybe

    They upped the fanservice for episode two :sure

    Aside from that, the story still doesn't seem to be getting any better, even after they added a bit more backstory... I guess it's not bad, but it's not anything that hasn't been done before, and there's nothing really unique in this show that makes me want to watch it. Maybe it's too early to judge, though.

    Kanata dealt with some additional baggage that Haruka inspired her through, and we had a flashback showing how she became friends with Narumi. Her loli form looked older and more mature than her current form :hoho

    The Eclair pair is great. Lots of hanky spanky with them. Claire especially seems to be a kindred spirit with Haruka.

    I'm glad to see that the story is picking up the pace little by little, altho I sincerely hope that each episode isn't gonna be just Kanata's problem of the week because that's just gonna hold down both Haruka and the story as a whole. I'd like to see both of them grow together rather than have Haruka be the catalyst for someone else's character growth.

    At least the fanservice is almost guaranteed to keep me hooked to this show :blobcoffee

    In fact, just give me a "beach volleyball technique of the week" format with the fanservice and I'll be more than satisfied with this show. There's literally no need for the sappy drama that comes with it.

    I went to sleep yesterday but I watched it now :ufdup

    I didn't really like all the Kanata trauma stuff, but other than that it's a really nice series with lots of "good animation" :cat

    I still like Hanebado more though

    Claire is best girl
