Despite the character flaws and occasional histrionics over badminton, it’s the spirit of those matches that help me to appreciate these smaller sports anime series.

I guess the thing that kinda bothers me is this show's existence in the the grand scope of other sports anime shows. There are already plenty of popular sports shows with a male cast with superb animation like Free and Haikyuu, and those lasted more than 1 cour. Hanebado! essentially felt like a giant teaser of "what would an all-girl sports anime show would look like with great animation." But this show was only planned for 1 cour and 1 cour only with no hope of a continuation despite having plenty of material.

Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate and enjoyed this show despite its numerous flaws, but wow it stings in the grand scheme of things.

The author of original manga is particularly famous for the desire to earn respect for his plot and good characters, and not fanservice or fetishes. For this reason, the adaptation immediately took on the most serious tone and emotional drama of the later chapters than the playful comedy of the first part of the manga. Unfortunately, this destroyed the show for many original fans and led to a lot of controversy. That is why the anime looks like a serious shonen with an all-female cast than your typical moe sport show.
