Fastest Finger First Episode 12: Define Fun



As expected, this anime has ended by wrapping up the meet though really the tension in the episode ended with the end of the match up between Koshiyama and Mikuriya (no spoiler on how that goes). Basically, there’s a lot more story implied with where the two go from here after this meet but as this is the final episode there’s a real question of whether we’ll ever get a second season or if this is really it for the anime.


I had a lot of fun with this final episode though will admit that other than watching characters over think questions, and seeing people try to deal with Akira, nothing really happened. Of course, it is a show about quizzing so I’d probably have been a bit put out if they’d tried anything else for a final.


I’ll get to a full review of this show later but I think the biggest disappointment is that the characters still haven’t been developed much at all. Because we spend so much time with the quizzes, any characterization is definitely taking a back seat.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Ended in a way that leaves it open for more but not bad if that’s all we get. Weird fact, did you know that this is WAY different than the manga? The changes they made were kind of weird. The manga is a senien series and the guy is a senior in high school. Some of the main cast doesn’t even exist. Found that to be interesting.

    1. Hey, an adaptation that actually adapted something rather than trying to reproduce. Though, I must admit your description of the manga kind of sounds better. That’s kind of intriguing.

          1. Yeah, this would not be easy to review. I feel good about it but don’t have anything to say other than, “I like quiz shows so this was a fun anime. I learned some stuff too.”

          2. And that’s really all I have to say but somehow I don’t think that’s going to cut it for a full season review. I’m in the process of drafting a feature for next week about why reviewing mediocre anime is hard.
