Truthfully, and I'm going to have scorn heaped upon me for saying this, the adventures of Tama-chan and the gang have been the ones I've most eagerly awaited each week. More than Kimikiss, more than Rosario+Vampire (easily more!), more than Spicy Wolf... and dare I say, maybe even more than Clannad?
Please don't get me wrong, BB is hardly high art... more like high Fred, Art's younger, less talented, brother. In some ways, in fact, the show is kinda cheesy at times, sappy at others. The character designs, particularly Dan-kun and his egg-shaped cranium, take a little getting used to. The plot is nothing you haven't seen in a gazillion sports movies and anime before; the only difference is that our heroes are swinging kendo blades instead of baseball bats.
Sure, the plot is hackneyed and cliche-ridden. Granted. I don't care.
Sure, the art isn't the greatest. Granted. I don't care.
Sure, there are better shows out there. Granted. I don't care.
Bamboo Blade was some of the most fun I've had watching anime in a couple-three years, easy. Here's hoping for a second season!

I thoroughly enjoyed the show, but what on earth happened in that last scene?
Anyway. An enjoyable show all around.

And THAT is why I'm pretty sure we'll see another series. Hopefully soon!

Why should you be scorned? The people who do scorn should check it out. It's fun stuff.
