Oh. I know this one. It’s Absolute Territory!
Fastest Finger First is a show that I will probably end up finishing this season. The show is a sports anime about quiz shows. It goes in depth behind the strategy of answering questions very quickly, which for someone that would watch shows like jeopardy as a kid I find it really interesting. Just like the quiz shows on american tv it invites the audience to play along and answer the questions with the characters, even if most of the questions are really hard… I don’t know if this is a cultural thing or not, but the most of the questions in this show are really hard and I don’t think you would be able to find many people on the street that know about the “Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance especially as Waterfowl Habitat”, though apparently you would know that if you read enough books like the main character Koshiyama.
Koshiyama is a bookworm which helps him a lot with knowledge for the quiz shows, which is his strong ability as the main character of a sports anime. He just needs to improve his reflexes and such which is probably what the training for him is going to be in the show so he can beat his rival in the finale. He gets suckered into joining the quiz bowl club by the main girl of the series, Fukami. Fukami is the character that was already into quiz bowl before the start of the show, which makes her better than Koshiyama for now. She will probably help train Koshiyama to get better so he can beat his rival. Also I really like that her voice is deeper than most girls in anime, it’s a nice break from the average squeely voice anime girls have.
As a fan of sports anime this is doing good stuff so far. I hope this show doesn’t slowly turn into shit to the point that I can’t stand anymore *cough*Keijo*cough*. Anyways I hope you enjoyed this blog, if you have any constructive criticism please leave it in the comments. I am trying to learn so I can get better. Peace.
