Ao no Kanata no Four Rhythm

What is going on? People sound so excited about this one and that continued even when the first episode finally arrived. I just finished watching it and I honestly think it’s mediocre at the very best. Surely it can’t be just me?

Ao no Kanata no Four RhythmI’ll be honest; the artwork looks good. There are a few things that could use some improvement, but the overall level of detail is pretty impressive. Even the characters look nice.

That being said; I do not really care for this story. It did not pique my interest at all and when the episode had finished I asked myself what the hell I just watched. Is it really all about flying shoes and how high schoolers use them?

I cannot recommend this. It could be the first episode that’s weak, but first impressions are very important where I come from. I’m simply not impressed.

Plot Summary: In a world where flying is as simple as riding a bicycle, there is a popular sport called “Flying Circus” (dogfight race). The protagonist who once hoped for a future in this sport suffered a setback due to an overwhelming defeat, and withdrew from the sport for this and some other reason. However, he met the transfer student Asuka Kurashina, and in teaching her to fly the skies, the old passion returned. He takes part in the Flying Circus again.
