What Is The Story Of Love All Play?
Love all play, as you all know is a fun, sports, and in some sense a slice-of-life anime. The story’s protagonist is Ryou Mizushima, who joined the badminton club in his middle school. Growing fond of badminton day by day, Ryou works hard day and night to improve his skills to qualify for the prefectural badminton tournament. He lacks a good coach to guide him. Ryou considers not entering the high-school badminton tournament and plans to join a local high school to play badminton just for fun.
One day, Ryou is scouted by the badminton coach of one of the strongest badminton teams. The coach of Yokohama high school realizes Ryou’s potential and how far he can go. Yokohama high being the strongest team has the best badminton player in the form of Kento Yusa, a player Ryou admires a lot and wants to be like (the story pretty much seems like Haikyuu but they both are good in their own way). Hesitant at first, Ryou enrolls in the high school. Now with a coach to guide and in the best team, Ryou sets out to surpass Yusa.
Love all play is a really good anime. Those wanting to watch a sports anime should surely check this one out. If you guys have already finished Haikyuu and want something similar, Love All Play is the best anime to watch right now.
