First Impressions:Ro-Kyu-Bu!

Ro Kyu Bu is the story of Hasegawa Subaru, a high schooler whose basketball club gets disbanded after the club president falls for the eleven year old daughter of the team advisor. He becomes the coach of a elementary girl basketball team. And...teaches them basketball.

Ro Kyu Bu is another anime that has absolutely nothing that stands out about it. The problem with seeing as everything that's coming out is that you get to see a lot of bland crap, and this is one of those shows. The only thing interesting about it is the confusion the creator obviously has about what elementary school girls do in the locker room to one another, and all I can say about that is that he needs some therapy or something.

The characters are such cardboard cutouts that there's no point in figuring out who's who. There's basketball girl, pigtailed pervert, big boobs girl, glasses girl, and tiny-mildy-eccentric girl. The lead is yet another cipher character, and his aunt, the advisor for the elementary girls basketball team, is another much older character who looks thirty years younger character. Nobody is interesting, and I can't tell who's who because they all look exactly the same except for hair color.

It's not a good sign when you're first introduced to the characters, they're in maid outfits. In an anime supposedly about basketball, they're dressed like maids. It's also not a good sign when while in the locker room, the sixth grader with DD boobs is felt up by the rest of the girls. Hey, at least she wears a sports bra while practicing, because her breasts are only noticeable outside of practice.

Yet another entry in the genre of "young girls being cute while doing _______ and behaving in sexual ways" that doesn't stand out in any way possible. I'll probably watch another new anime tomorrow, can it please be one that's actually interesting?
