    Episode 1

    He's off target.

    So it begins with the MC, a guy with great talent, reluctant to take part in the sport he once had great passion for. In this case, Minato was well known for having a divine form of shooting, but ever since his mother died, he put down his bow to fill her shoes in at home seeing that his father is always busy with work. To get him to get back in the game, a childhood friend drags him into the club, and he reluctantly takes up the bow to show off his skill, but of course with his state of mind he shows just how far he has fallen. The foundation has been laid well, and it will be interesting to see where this leads to as Minato is another one of those sports anime MCs who just needs to rediscover his passion, and he's well on his way to glory. Pretty typical start for a sports anime involving a talented, but emotionally scarred MC.

    With that, the trial rules apply, though because of its late start I probably will give it one less episode than usual to make my decision.

      Definitely looking to be one of the only KyoAni shows weak enough for me to drop. Pretty enough as with all of their shows, but even that isn't remarkable by their standards like, say, Violet Evergarden, and that's really all it has going for it.

        Episode 2

        Straight as an arrow.

        These past ten months were quite tough on Minato as it was a simple matter of not hearing that sound, and thus his skills suffered from it. And here comes Masaki as he's a mysterious guy, especially with the 10,000 arrows pledge. At least Minato is taking up the bow again, but it remains to be seen if his passion and dedication for the sport will take off again.

          Episode 3

          They got his back.

          This episode focuses on the other members of the archery team as they are pretty much like the Free! characters. There's the MC Minato, who is much like Haru with his stubbornness streak, Ryohei is the responsible childhood friend like Makoto, Nanao is somebody who is hard to take seriously like Hazuki, Seiya is the smart one like Rei, and Kacchan is the jerk (at least in the beginning) like Rin, though that last one is a bit of a stretch. Anyway, it's good to see the other members getting focus, especially Ryohei since he knows Minato better than anybody, and just needs some motivation to get him to join the club. So now that the club is together, it's go time with a tournament coming up.

          So with that, I'll need to decide on this show soon as it's on the bubble and is going to be one of the last shows in if it does make the cut.

            Episode 4

            Need more practice.

            Those boys realize just how much practice they need when the girls plus their coach and a retired veteran totally dominate them in a practice match. So they have to pick weeds as a penalty, but that served as great motivation to get better, so good for them. And Masaki's archery, that is simply graceful and beautiful.

            So with that, the time is near for me to finalize my watchlist as I need to figure out which show will be the last one out.
