Basquash! Oppai Anime


Mecha anime Basquash has failed to garner too much attention for anything save its loving recreation of oppai physics as yet, demonstrated by the appealing Miyuki above

You can see more of it below, though oppai lovers will be better served by watching the highly animated feature itself…


Observers can’t help but note its international flavour…

    The animation does look interesting, but since its mostly about basketball I'm going to pass on this one.
    Also LOL'ed at around 0.26 in the video, the team has the same colors as the L.A. Lakers....

    Great animation, though the story is not in my type of genre.

    Michiko to Hatchin meets Rideback meets... Megas XLR?

    Why haven't I heard anything about this series until now?

    First pic under the video does look a lot like rideback.. in car form.
    Song reminds me of Supershooter/Gantz.

    Oh well I'll watch.. whether I like it or not I'll figure out after watching.

    Saw the first ep, it was fucking great.

    Just don't except any deep character/story developpement, it's all about FUN.

    *sigh*, i had a feeling people would put this off because of the quirky idea of basketball and mechs. it's stupid assumptions and narrow minded thinking like these that don't give creative shows like these a chance. believe it or not, the Valkryie idea of the Gerwalk form from Macross was shot down in flames because it was odd and not similar to Gundam. now look at the series, it stands apart from Gundam because of that quirky bird like form (and of course the music and other good stuff).

    what really reeled me in was the setting of the world itself. no really, it's like they threw in a beautiful European painting which clashes with the mechs and basketball giving off that odd feeling....but it works! that's something i haven't seen in anime in a long time aside from Miyazaki movies. well, seeing how we got French flavor being put into work here it's no wonder it feels different.

    and most of all, take a look at the all star cast. no really, i don't see why anyone wouldn't want to watch it for the cast especially if you're a Macross Frontier fan. Enou Aya does a surprising voice over for her character because it doesn't sound anything similar to anything she's done yet. oh and just wait until the intro is shown with Nakajima Megumi, Tomatsu Haruka, and Hayami Saori singing what is probably going to be a top hit.

    what i'm saying is, give it a chance before slapping the boring label on it. just because it doesn't follow the norm doesn't mean it's not going to be great. hell, Kawamori Shoji even stated that he didn't want to make a serious series like Macross Frontier with this but rather a fun one. it's alot better than K-ON for sure.

    (waRning uncivilized commentary below)
    I admit, when I read the concept, I thought this show was going to be utter garbage, no better than a hood rat uterus-turd born from a black welfare mom; Destined to smoke crack and rape people who find themselves in the wrong neighborhood.... But boy was i ever wrong..

    (decent commentary)
    This show is pure fun!!! Those expecting a intellectual challenge from this show are they themselves intellectually challenged. Mechas playing basketball...Of course its not going to take itself seriously. But with the best production values I've seen this year, voice acting of the highest caliber, and a charming world-scape that draws you into believing that giant robots wearing nikes belong there; it is one show that, if not simply for its aesthetic properties, should be seen by any anime fan.

    (warning indecent)
    And I'll come off my high horse, Miyuki is totally an instant boner! I won't let myself be degraded my fapping to someones drawings; but if i were to FAP like I've never fapped before, it would be to miyuki. I could used my dong to break diamonds!

    But seriously, I'm interested in the world concept they've set up there. Looks great, I get the feeling it's promising action as well as compelling characters and a storyline.

    Just gonna watch it and ignore haters, you all should do the same.

    Interesting. Someone's been trying to get me interested in this show.

    Having seen these screengrabs I suppose it's not ridiculous to think that this is Eureka Seven, but with basketball instead of boarding? Could be cool.

    Basquash tries too hard to be hip and cool and edgy. It crosses the line between "overblown but cool" and "ridiculous and stupid."

    I went ahead and watched the raw version cuz I had confidence in the director Shoji Kawamori, who also did Macross series, Eureka 7, Genesis of Aquarion, Ghost In the Shell. He worked on at least the mecha designs, if not, script and others. And Basquash! 1st episode was quite impressive to me. The artwork was fabulous, as he did in Macross F too. Can't really tell much about the plot, but the suspense progressed well for the first episode.
    Think about it guys~

    although, i did hear some feedback saying that the character design for the protagonist was a bit disappointing. the character development doesn't look good.

    ...dare I ask what anime YOU'RE watching? Black people in anime is pretty ridiculously rare. I mean what, are you referring to Gidget from Eureka 7 who had like 5 minutes of screen time TOTAL in the whole f'ing series?! Or Afro Samurai? What?

    Honestly Miyuki is the entire reason I'm watching this one. It's nice to actually see a black girl in anime, especially a cute and likeable one and more than that she's actually a primary character and the #1 source of fanservice for the show!

    It's really not that bad like everyone said. Give it a chance try to watch episode 1 and then decide. It won't kill you to try.

    Yes it will, because if I watch one episode I MUST watch ALL of it! It's one of my silly resolutions that I've failed to apply only on 2 or 3 instances.

    Also from one episode you can't really understand what will follow or how the plot continues. Many promising anime titles looked very promising on episode one and then ruined it to disastrous levels (e.g. My-Hime in the last 2 episodes).

    You're not the only one.. dropped 2 series from what I can remember and 'saw it trough' with many others.

    Still need to somehow watch the last episode of White Album.

    That protagonist was a complete douche. I wonder how much thought went into the actual story line, im guessing about 5 minutes worth.

    This is stupid, basing the appeal of an entire series on the last episodes. Way to waste the 24 episodes worth of hardworking animators blood sweat and tears.

    I didn't discredit them, I liked the anime overall but they blew up the ending. Such a good plot, voice actors, art only to ruin it in the finale. Pity indeed...

    Also, I was just describing an example of how you can't make your mind for an anime title just by watching only one episode. I didn't want to trash My(Mai)-Hime entirely.

    looks like pretty good quality animation and cg but basketball and mecha? this anime is targeting a very specific demographic...Americans and the hip hop/rap crowd. way to stereotype a show about basketball guys.
