4 year difference? I think first year high school is around 16 or 17 from the other stories I read but not sure on the age of a 6th grader. But maybe it's around 11-12. So the age gap isn't that big. But I just can't take it seriously if they portray it now...... he just looks like a big lolicon to me though I still like it. Airi is really tall. She is almost the same height as Subaru or maybe taller because he is tip toeing to make Airi smaller.

I wonder the reaction of Aoi if she knew why Subaru was sleeping in the class or why is he tired.
I was just saying that they're laying groundwork for trouble. They set up Subaru to have no real interest in any of the girls until Tomoka caught his eye with her skills and form. His interest at least at the beginning was purely one of admiration of her form and passion and a real connection, only later developing some possible physical side after Tomoka had been blushing every time he was close to her for a few days. First year high school in Japan is 10th grade, and for them that means the 16th birthday is somewhere within the April-March school year. The girls seem to all be 6th grade, which places their 12th birthday somewhere in the year. A 4-year difference is big at the moment, but it will quickly diminish. Of course looks can have some big impact. Subaru could go out on dates with Airi and many people wouldn't see anything wrong, but with Hinata he'd spend the entire day with the police. Hinata has more in the chest than some of the other girls, but she could otherwise pass for a 1st grader.

I wonder what would've happened if Maho realized what had happened when he grabbed Hinata. Nothing would stop her from calling him Onii-chan once she realized its power.

The lolicon is finally awakening...XD

As far as age - Subaru is 15 (His birthday is Oct. 11), while the girls are all 6th grade, which means they're 11 (except Airi, who's 12 since her birthday is Apr. 5, Hinata being youngest with her birthday at Mar. 3). Although, yes, if a police see Subaru carrying Hinata around or having Tomoka hugging him from back, pretty sure he'll get arrested

As far as Subaru's friend...you'll know soon enough...

Who's the small forward? Tomoka? Saki? Please enlighten me.

By the way, man, have you ever heard of the undersized power forward? This type of power forward is (obviously) shorter but quicker than normal PF's, but it can often create mismatches a team can exploit. Undersized PFs use their speed against bigger players to get close into the rim, while they use their size and athleticism against smaller players, either by posting up or jump shooting over them.

Charles Barkley is an example of one. At 6'6" (198 cm), 252 lbs. (114 kg), he can even outplay larger power forwards during his days in the NBA, such as Julius Erving.

Since Maho is the most energetic of the batch, she fits either the shooting guard or power forward position. If she fits the latter, she could be a potential undersized PF.

I will update the actual line-up used in the match after watching ep 03, as I haven't done so yet. But I would appreciate it if somebody updates the line-up before I do. A possible line-up would be as follows:

@judasmartel: still undersized or not they don't have the muscle for the position, then again it's an anime, and they they are girls in elementary school, so real world professional basketball tactics do not really apply

And by the way, wasn't Barkley playing as a small forward? It's been ages, so I don't really remember.

Indeed. So do we expect a three-guard or even four-guard line-up then?

@Charles Barkley topic: He does play the SF, but he is listed as a PF nonetheless.

@back to ep 3 topic: Hinata won't let go of Subaru, Subaru gets caught nappin'. Oops.

Well, misunderstanding cleared. Whew.

@LINEUP FOR THE MATCH:

Spoiler for :


This reminds me of Magic Johnson playing Center in the 1980 NBA Finals.

Series licensed already? T-T I need my subs until they actually release something, which could take who knows how long...

I'm not the first to say it, but this series is much better than it looked before. I was just watching it for the adorable character designs, but a good story too? Definitely a keeper.

And about possible SubaruxTomoka, methinks it may just be simple one-sided juvenile romance. Tomoka may just be confusing admiration for love, something I've seen irl and in stories involving kids quite a lot. She could have an actual crush on him, but not something that he'll seriously return.

Ep 3 showed us that the main weakness of the double team is that there will always be an open teammate to pass to for a shot.

One correction to the lineup:
Spoiler for position deception:


Aside from the one pair of positions whose names were switched for psychological reasons, the rest of the positions are set based on relative size, physique, etc. Aside from Tomoka, the girls are all novices who haven't had the time to develop the strengths and skills necessary to properly fill their positions, so Subaru had to judge where to put the girls so they could make the most with what they have while not being hurt too much by their weaknesses. Of course, one of them is currently just about worthless in any position, so her job is basically to stay out of the way and possibly later to somehow distract certain parties.

As for romance, as I said the foundation's been laid for a pure love that can develop. Subaru came in thinking "this girl's passionate about the game, she's got great form and speed, she's absolutely awesome." This gives him a good position for a slow relationship that will work its way from teacher-student to romance after the gap's a little less gaping. Much better than the position some others (like maybe the rumored captain) would get coming in thinking "loli butt looks good in spats". I don't think you'll see any kisses or serious dates, or anything beyond a couple blushes, while Tomoka's in grade school. But it wouldn't surprise me if someday she would prove someone who Aoi would find seriously threatening.

There is literally a one year age difference between the girls of Ro-Kyu-Bu! and the primary cast of Yuruyuri. Art styles aside, how come the latter cast is treated like a normal cast, while RKB is being looked upon strangely for having young characters make up its primary characters? This same problem cropped up in Mitsudomoe where people seem wary of having a cast of prepubescent characters at all, even if any sexual things that happen at all are played for laughs or the result of mistakes.

Is there some societal cutoff age where it's suddenly okay for characters to star in things?

The character designs for one are to blame, as well as the cast of ro kyu bu actually behaves as elementary schoolkids, unlike yuru yuri.

I'm aware that they are elementary schoolers, but I'm asking why the one year difference between a middle school cast and a high school cast suddenly changes everyone's perception. For the most part, characters are characters, and shouldn't be defined solely by their age.

It's not the one year difference in this case, rather how they are drawn and how they behave.

Then in that case, what's so bad about having elementary schoolers that act like elementary schoolers as characters?

The kids in RKB and Mitsudomoe are sixth graders, and the girls in Yuru Yuri are seventh graders. Despite the one year difference, the kids in RKB and Mitsudomoe look waaay younger than the YY girls, almost like young elementary school kids. The YY girls look more their age.

Also, the YY cast is in their next stage of life/school, even if only barely. Middle school is when things begin to change, so perhaps their somewhat closeness to adulthood makes them more "palatable".

RKB also had a huge loli feeling to it already because of the plot, and Tinkle...

Nice to see some actual game plan in this. It's working to an extent, but fitness will always remain a problem.

The lolicon in Subaru is awakening alright. The Medic part got me cracked up as well.
