Hinomaruzumou (First Impression)

Plot:

It is a divine ritual, a martial art, a combat sport—it’s sumo!! A “small” new student, Ushio Hinomaru, appears before the weak little sumo club of Oodachi High School! The words “big” and “heavy” are the rules to this sport, which does not fit this newbie any inch, but this guy goes and does what…?! Ushio and the small sumo club climbs its way to the top!

First Impression:

I always thought that Sumo was about big men pushing each other out of the ring and, oh boy, was I wrong about that. Sumo is a much more intense and honorable sport than I originally thought! The anime itself looks and feels great, the artwork and animation are dynamic and colorful while the story is passionate and inspiring. I love an overpowering main character, and Ushio is just the guy to fill that spot!

Recommendation:

YES

If you love sports anime in general, then look no further! Hinomaruzumou is no doubt a dark horse in this fall season, a lot of people will pass it up but that’d be a mistake. There’s no doubt that Hinomaruzumou will live up to this first episode and continue to dish out a great story.
