So the 2nd ep. is out right now for this anime. I watched it and right away thought wow this looks really cheap compared to what I am used to. I stuck it out cause I have watched a few really good animes that the animation was not really on par for what I watch (ex. Ping Pong The Animation). The stry so far has been pretty good and I am really starting to get into it. The story is set in America but from the end of ep. 2 it looks like there is going to be a high school team from Japan. So hopefully there is going to be other people from othe countries that show up.
