    First two episodes are out, it's got early Prince of Tennis vibes, which isn't a bad thing - let's hope it doesn't follow the same path story wise because New Prince of Tennis is BAD

    The MCs are interesting - one is pretty much a girl Echizen minus the love for the sport - which isn't an issue at the moment since the season will likely have her get over her badminton issues, but if it drags too long then I can see it getting old. The other is the typical shonen kind of hero - work hard, power through, win, though she certainly doesn't start off that way

    The first episode was a bit meh, too melodramatic for my taste, but things picked up in the second episode, even though it's very cliche. Here's a list of tropes that Hanebado! used in the first two episodes:

    > Crushing defeat that makes you question your love for the sport
    > Staff supervisor who knows nothing about the sport
    > "If you can't work as hard as me get out", leading to people getting out
    > Random moment where MC shows natural talent for the sport, despite not playing the actual sport
    > MC hates the thing they're good at
    > Vice Captain could have beaten the captain but holds back (this trope is particularly annoying)
    > Alumnus comes to coach the team and TURN THINGS AROUND
    > "He could have represented the country but he got injured"
    > Telling a character to "believe in their strongest weapon"
    > Sudden moment of character wokeness leading to apology
    > The short girl that the series tries far too hard to make likeable and cute
    > "Let's win the Inter-High", which means they're definitely NOT winning the Inter-High

    I hereby dub this series "The Prince of Badminton"

    Badminton isn't a mixed sport right?
