Smash!

Really interesting manga imo. Didn't think a manga about badmitton would be any good. What do you the rest of you think?

Quote:
Smash! is about two childhood friends (Shouta and Miwa) who share a common love for Badminton. Miwa, who's in love with Shouta, tries to persuade Shouta to apply to the same badminton school as her but the latter being of a carefree, easy-going and dense nature, brushes her away and states that he only plays badminton for fun.
However, Shouta's perspective of badminton quickly changes after a fateful encounter with Yuuhi (a mute girl). In his search for his badminton goddess Yuuhi, Shouta met Anan and thereafter, decides that he's going to pursue badminton more seriously...
There are 18 volumes total but only up to 15 can be found as scans currently and only up to chapter 73 is scanlated.

Got round to catching up with this, I had stopped around ch 50 before.
Abit glad I decided to pick it up again as while I find this a ok series, I kinda like the romance side to it. Well even then that side isn't particularly strong either but I'd say it's the better side compared to the sports element which is not particularly strong.

Shouta as a MC is again I'd say ok, pretty cliche in away but he is part of the pairing I like the most, which is him and Ebisawa.
Gotta be honest and say I really do wish they would hook up but I highly doubt it would ever happen given his current relationship and how it usually goes.
Plus I doubt we'll see much melodrama with Shouta and Yuuhi.
But still I'll hold onto that wishful thinking anyway.

Cast of chracters are not bad, Anan and Miwa's realtionship is starting to take off,

Overall nothing special about this manga expect maybe Ebisawa I really do like her alot.

The manga is already completely finished. Here's some info on the end and the thing between Shouta/ Yuuhi and Ebisawa.

Spoiler for final pairings and spoilers:

Loved volume 13s extra chapter. All the cosplay who wouldn't? Also Shouta seeing Yuuhi in an apron and wished he could taste the sweets she made and he's already running to Osaka. LOL! As Ebisawa said, beaten by an apron.

well, I love this manga since it's quite rare to find a good manga about badminton
it has a good romance and I like how Shouta and Yuuhi try to do a LDR... ^^
I hope they will make one extra chapter about Yuuhi and Shouta played Mixed Double....

and, finally I can find a manga that can say many positive things about Indonesia....
