Memorizing and satisfying
18 November 2019 | by dkolathSee all my reviews

Two words. Memorizing and satisfying. 10 of 10 would binge watch. It does an amazing job of introducing you to the world of ballroom dancing which you may love or hate, but can't turn your eyes away from.

It has its flaws in pacing, over-exposition, and excessive back story, but what it has to offer makes up for its flaws in spades.

It stays true to itself and doesn't cheat when it comes to rewards or failures and that's one of the things that makes this particular anime so satisfying.

It's a series that feels like it's taken extreme care in representing the world of competitive Ballroom Dancing in all its details and intricacies that it is hard not to be drawn in.

Love or hate it, you won't regret watching it, and if you're like me can't wait for the next season to be announced.
