Hanebado! is a television anime adaptation of the manga of the same name by author Kosuke Hamada that was released to the audience in July 2018. The film’s official Twitter account also introduced the trailer, the staff and the character’s design.

The main content is about Nagisa Aragaki. Amazed by the defeat at the young badminton tournament 6 months ago, she forced the club to practice under the extremely strict regime and caused internal seeds of discord. Meanwhile, the opponent who defeated her, Ayano Hanesaki, a student from the same school, turned to join the tennis club. However, Hanesaki was persuaded by her best friend to return to the forte sport. And the two old animals met in the same badminton club. How will this clash lead to a conclusion?!

Hanebado‘s first strength! It is the practice of a sport that is very popular in practice but rarely seen in manga and anime: badminton. Obviously there are not many badminton kits compared to tennis, football, basketball and swimming. Not to mention here is mainly female badminton, so this alone makes Hanebado a quite strange item on the banquet of sports anime in general and this summer in particular.

Similar to other sports anime like Free! Iwatobi Swim Club or Haikyuu !!!, Hanebado! Exploit the journey between two opponents with two opposing personalities. However, Hanebado! There is a special part when developing two more powerful assistants for the central character duo, two close friends. Nagisa’s friend understood her desire to win and her fear of losing, and Ayano’s best friend was a better person than anyone else, and where her friend should belong. It is thanks to these two girls that “catalyzed” that our two heroines came to the same team, creating a premise for many interesting events going forward. Besides the two heroines, the image of the other members of the club as well as the coach is also very personal and contributes to complete the overall picture of a badminton club.

Objectively speaking, the graphics of Hanebado! cannot be called excellent, but well groomed. Besides the main characters are full of energetic schoolgirls and each one has a personality, the fact that the anime cares for the environment such as the gym, the dressing room looks so real is a big plus. In addition, the intricate details of the sport from the skin, the hair to the image of dripping sweat or the highly concentrated eyebrows are all carefully taken into consideration!

Haikyuu !! is an amazing volleyball sports anime that tells the story of two characters who think that they will be enemies but eventually become comrades: Hinata Shouyou and Kageyama Tobio.

“Enemies” and “Allies” become one. That sounds paradoxical, but it is the most accurate description of Hinata and Kageyama’s relationship: the strongest enemy is the strongest ally!

In volleyball, once standing on either side of the net, it is a battle. And the battle of the two takes place quickly. Hinata has failed miserably, the pain of losing the game caused him to burst into tears, but in that tears, there was also the determination to take revenge. Kageyama, though in the position of the winner, doesn’t feel satisfied at all, because there are moments when confronting each other, he realizes in Hinata’s eyes an overwhelming strength, the power that makes he felt threatened.

Just like that, in the opponent’s eyes, they are opponents. Viewers wait for a familiar plot: after the first encounter, the result will be the one who loses the winner; They both practiced non-stop and then reunited at a top match. But all speculations have turned in a completely different direction when they know that their relationship does not stop at the words “enemy”. From the opponent, Kageyama and Hinata are forced to be teammates in a situation that no one can predict: they join a high school, join a volleyball club.

Hinata’s frightening speed and power combined with Kageyama’s precise pass made them an invincible duo. In the past, there was no one ball that could maximize Hinata’s power, nor did any of the smokers keep up with Kageyama’s fast pass. The chemistry between the two matched like the next two pieces in a puzzle game.

Even though being partners, Kageyama and Hinata have always considered the enemy to be the one to overcome. It doesn’t show up in quarrels or races, but it’s the times when Kageyama and Hinata work together. Their combination is successful because they are both constantly training to catch up to their opponents, so Hinata can get a pass from Kageyama, and let Kageyama be able to make the most accurate ball to Hinata.

The world-class anime series like Sailor Moon, One Peace or Pokémon have brought in more than $ 19 billion a year in revenue for the industry in the period 2002-2017.

However, the strong development of the Japanese anime industry hiding hidden reality is worrisome: many animators behind the magic attraction on the screen are empty. They face working conditions that can lead to exhaustion and even suicide.

However, the strong development of the Japanese anime industry is hiding the worrisome reality. Many animators behind the magic attraction on the screen are empty. They face working conditions that can lead to exhaustion and even suicide.

Shingo Adachi, a famous Japanese painter, said the shortage of manpower in this industry is a serious problem today. He said the lack of talent is a serious problem going on. With nearly 200 animated TV series produced in Japan every year, there are not enough skilled animators to make such a large number of movies. Instead, studios must rely on freelance artists, they are paid according to the product, not the monthly salary. Because passion they are willing to accept cheap pay.

The intermediate artists are paid about 200 yen for each picture. This rate of pay is not bad if every artist can draw 200 drawings a day, but every anime drawing can take more than an hour. That’s not to mention paying attention to other details that must be changed when the movie is shown in Western countries, such as food, architecture, landscapes.

In addition, conditions for working in the anime industry are also extremely stressful. Anime artists often fall asleep at their desks because of exhaustion. Henry Thurlow, an American anime painter who lives and works in Japan, said he had been hospitalized many times because he sat on his desk for too long.

Madhouse’s film studio, based in Tokyo, was recently accused of violating labor laws because it forced employees to work nearly 400 hours a month and for 37 consecutive days, without a day off. The suicide of a male anime artist in 2014 in Japan was considered due to work pressure after investigators found that he had worked more than 600 hours in the month before committing suicide.
