    Gonna throw some tags for people who I think will like this series

    @Red @Grin @Monster Trio @miss_SMP @sweetjacky @Twelve

    The main character is like a mixture of Saitama from One Punch Man and Kuroko, with Akashi's hair

    If that doesn't sell it, I don't know what will

    :cereal: That's quite a description there.


    I never understood golf but I will add this to my (long) to-read list. Hopefully I'll pick it up someday. :grin:

    I read it the day it came out on mangastream, gotta say I was too fast for you :')
    I think it's a great series, I really like it. At first I thought... "Golf wot"
    However I later saw that it was made by the same dude as KnB, so gave it a try.

    Yeaaaaa, glad I ain't the only one thinking so.
    He's even tanned as well. Only difference would kinda be their character itself.
    I guess it would be more like Aomine at the end of KnB? Since then he doesn't think thaaaat highly of himself anymore.

    Indeed I am

    The cheese levels in this series are already end-of-series Kuroko no Basket levels, as if the development in that story wasn't already rushed enough

    It's enjoyable, and this last chapter entertained me a lot

    @miss_SMP @Monster Trio are you guys still reading?

    I neither read nor watched KnB, nor do I have experience with any other kind of sports manga/anime, so I have no idea how bad shit already is in comparision.

    I think it was okay-ish.
    Robo being utterly exhausted due to him gving it his all for the past holes already, plus the weather conditions around and that in consideration that he isn't in the best physical shape, despite him having improved significantly.

    While people cheering for him and this giving him the power to keep going was cheesy as fuck, do I like how Robo starts to handle emotion. In this particular moment and when he wants the swing to get in from the heart.

    Not sure about how I feel that he landed a chip-in eagle though.
    Him being able to copy Suzaku's Knock-Down Shot under these impressions paired with his Laserbeam accuracy would've been good enough. Letting him do bad at putting after that or simply breaking down due to exhaustion and giving Suzaku the win is what I would've expected.
    This would've maintained a nice challenge for the longer run and created yet another rival.

    Suzaku will not drop his boner for Robo for sure, especially not now after he lost against Mr. Laserbeam, but I would've preferred it more the other way around.
    Robo already did more than well enough for the underdog in the group, especially against a competitor like the Emporer.

    But yeah, the chapter was enjoyable and Robo raising his fist in ecstasy and happyniess over the vicotry was a great character moment.

    Edit:
    But I have a big issue with how fast Robo progresses as a player.
    First he learned the curve shot in an instant, now the knock-down shot. He learns too much too fast.
    It's true that his basics are still lacking compared to actual pros, but he already knows all the advanced skills that keep him in competition with brows, meaning that he will outshine the others players very fast, very soon and I don't wanna see some supernatural/superhuman golfing after that.

    I definitely wouldn't recommend KnB for you if you don't like the superhuman aspect, because the main guys in that are equally as ridiculous as Robo

    One thing I will say is that he technically didn't win, it was the team's win, he still finished a few shots behind Suzaku I believe? So I imagine he won't be satisfied fully with the outcome

    There's a reason why I haven't picked it up to date. ^^
    Do they at least have a pseudo-explanation behind it the same way Robo has?

    He technically won the hole.
    He technically didn't win the match. He lost to Suzaku with -1 (Robo) to -8 (Suzaku), assuming Suzaku would make the birdy.
    He technically won the tournament. ^^

    I think he is going to be satisfied with the outcome.
    He lost against a far more experienced player, but achieved what he wnate to achieve personally.
    He made Eiai win the tounrmant and I think the beat his previous best play record, too. The two goals he set himself at the beginning. I don't recall that it was a personal goal of his to beat Kyousuke, too, and Robo has, untill now, only griefed over misdoings he set himself up to achieve prior.
