Hanebado! Ep. 1-4Episode 1

Oh hey, a badminton anime. You don’t see that very often.

Hanebado! Ep. 2-2Episode 2

Giving Nagisa character development now was the smart thing to do.

Hanebado! Ep. 3-4Episode 3

Yay, Elena. My favorite character of all time.

Hanebado! Ep. 4-4Episode 4

We just met one rival with a hate crush for Ayano and now there’s another one?

Hanebado! Ep. 5-4Episode 5

Sometimes, I get this impression that Hanebado! isn’t keenly aware of how fragile its own protagonist is mentally.

Hanebado! Ep. 6-3Episode 6

You’re focusing on the wrong character, Hanebado!.

Hanebado! Ep. 7-4Episode 7

Wait, who was I supposed to root for?

Hanebado! Ep. 8-5Episode 8

Oh yeah, Nagisa is a relevant character…

Hanebado! Ep. 9-6Episode 9

There can only be one Wei-Wei fan in this family.

Hanebado! Ep. 10-3Episode 10

So much for Uchika’s screentime.

Hanebado! Ep. 11-4Episode 11

I must admit that I have softened my opinion of Elena as time went on.

Hanebado! Ep. 12-4Episode 12

You had one job, Hanebado!.

Hanebado! Ep. 13-6Episode 13

I actually enjoyed this finale a fair amount though maybe that’s because this anime has run out of ways to botch its storyline.
