Synopsis: As soon as he entered high school, the first year student Koshiyama Shiki was invited to the mysterious Quiz Study Group led by his senpai. What will Shiki run into when being dragged along by his class mate Mari into the dazzling world of competitive quizzes?! (MAL)
This anime had an interesting first episode and a really really good Opening song. There were the reasons why I kept on watching the series weekly. Well, of course, its also cuz of the story. It’s kinda rare to find an anime about competitive quiz bowl. It definitely ignited my inner bookworm. Ha!
I think I mentioned this a couple of times before, but I find the art style of this anime quite similar to hentai animes. I’m not trying to diss or degrade this anime, bruh, I really liked this anime. It’s just the art. I’m not disappointed by it, but I needed time to adjust. I need to look at this anime, and not be reminded that it was similar to hentai. At least, the animation and art were consistent all through out the series.
I was kind disappointed by the ending because it only featured 2 unofficial quiz bowl and 1 official quiz bowl. I wanted more. Well, it can’t be helped cuz the anime lasts only for 12 episodes. I also have problems with the pacing of the story. Some scenes were dragged out to much which result to an unsatisfying ending. Cuz of that, the story was kinda shallow at the very end. I do hope this series would get a 2nd season. There are still quite many plot questions that needs to be answered. If not, I might read the manga instead.
Overall, its an enjoyable anime to watch. It is light-hearted and easy to digest, everyone can definitely enjoy. If you are a fan of quiz bowl and is a bokworm, you’ll definitely enjoy this series.
That is all.
