Rising Impact 2024 / A basic and questionable anime about golf


This series feels classic and cute, but also really questionable. It has whimsical fantasy elements injected into its main sports journey format that is easy to care about, and especially commendable given the fact that it circles around the dramatization of a sport as dry as golf. But the dynamic between Gawain and Ms. Kiria (at least in the early going) is unwatchably weird and can be cause to just dip from the show. Makes you wonder who this show is for, because while everything feels like well-done albeit tired untouchable-young-protagonist tropes, there is that promise of freaky humor that gets in the way and serves no real purpose, as if conceding that golf wasn’t a good enough hook.
