I would have loved the animation without fail if it wasn't for one thing.
Why? For the love of god why? We got through all of the original tenipuri anime without it. We didn't need it here. It looks glaringly out of place and spoils what would have otherwise been amazingly beautiful animation.
Otherwise it was pretty good. Even if I wanted to kick the person who kept adding awkward folds to Echizen's shorts.
i completely agree with you. however, I believe that the awkward folds were a strap that hung from Echizen's pants. It's kind of hard to tell, but when Echizen plays against the purple cap guy, you can see the actual strap. just wanted to point that out
