In the interests of saving time... I will make this very brief....

I consider this series to be practically the holy grail of sports anime... You would be hard pressed to find something better... or more under appreciated...

Wiki ripoff: The story is about Yawara Inokuma, a young girl who aspires to an ordinary life but who, due to her innate talent, is forced to keep practicing judo by her authoritarian grandfather, Jigorou Inokuma, with the aim of achieving championship in Japan and the gold medal in the Barcelona's 1992 Olympic Games. Because of all the pressure from her grandfather, she has a generally bad attitude about judo, avoiding it as much as she can. However, as the manga continues, she begins to understand why her grandfather so loves judo, and she begins to appreciate it more.

Now the problem with this series is that it has not been completely subbed... just like Galaxy Express 999... The very 1st thing I will be doing once my Japanese reaches the native conversational level is to buy the frigging Japanese DVD's of both series... I will sub em myself if I have to...


There are three reasons why you can't defeat me. One: Your sword is too light. Two: There's nothing I can't cut. Three: I'm more handsome than you - Kyo
