    Episode 1

    Wanna cheer?

    This is all about character introductions and the foundation of the cheerleading club as Kohane was so impressed by the cheerleading squad that she wants to become a cheerleader herself. And then there is Uki, who is Kohane's longtime friend, and Hizume, who quit cheerleading because she was too good that it became a problem for everybody else. Kohane has the spirited personality needed to be a cheerleader, but her fear of heights is a problem. So far, it's off to a decent start here and while nothing groundbreaking, it's a show that will satisfy those who love these kinds of shows.

    So like always, trial rules will apply, which means after a few more episodes I'll make a definitive decision.

      Episode 2

      The clothes make the cheerleader.

      Kohane undergoes some training from Hizume, and she's way too caught up in the cute aspect and the outfit design that she's not exactly taking it with the utmost of seriousness. Nevertheless, those two have some interesting chemistry with each other, all while Uki is motivated to join after seeing the routine. Pretty funny to see those fight shorts that Kohane had the option to wear instead of the skirt, but of course she has her own tastes that she wants to impose on others.

      Well, this show is probably on the outside looking in as while I'm always up for this kind of show, I feel that I'm not enjoying it as much as the other cute girls shows of this season. So I'll give it one more episode, but given how crowded the season is it will have to make an extraordinary impression if I am going to continue on.

        Re: Episode 1

        Kohane has found her purpose in life. Chair! Actually I want a bunch of mini episodes with them all as chairs. I love how they handled Arima. They made sure to give us perhanps not a complete picture of her but a reasonable picture of her early on. Ie we got to see why she was reacting the way she did and even got to see regret from her. This is potentially my favorite series of the season so far. At least in my top 3.

        Re: Episode 2

        Then in episode 2, we got the scene with Arima concluding she'd be alone again. Showing from the start in some ways Arima needs this club and series of events to happen as much as Kohane does, maybe even more. Plus she and Kohane both needed Uki to join. After all, raising Kohane err I mean cheerleading is a task that can use as much support as possible.
