Basquash! Bandwidth Killer Pre-warning!
On the planet Earthdash, its inhabitants gaze on its moon and the technologically advanced lunar city of Mooneyes with awe. Dan JD, a boy living in Rollingtown on Earthdash’s surface, gets caught up in Bigfoot Basketball — a fast-paced sport played with giant Bigfoot robots.
Basquash is great! We already know that…
Well… for those who don’t, I’ll say it again. Basquash is the bestest awesomemestemest adrenalin pumping ass-WHOOPING coolestest anime ever!
It’s so great, I’m not even going to bother with a review. It’s a 5-Star, through and through. Instead, I’m going to spam about the elements of Basquash. Explained by a bogus theory I came up with. I think I’m going to call it the 5-B-Multiplier.
In a nutshell, Basquash is so great because it fully utilize the 5 B’s. Basketball, Bots, Babes, Balls and of course, Boobies. Put all these together, and the effect multiplies so great that Basquash achieves EPICDOM!
Let’s start with Basketball.
The basketball in Basquash is street style. Although, there are hints of a court style basketball existing in some scenes when Rouge called Dan JD to shoot a three pointer.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but there has not been a single basketball anime which flunked. Even Dear Boys, the anime featuring sissy guys. Which although wasn’t something I enjoyed, had a rather successful feedback. Despite having rock-bottom basketball animes like Buzzer Beater, more often than not, basketball animes will always receive a good response.
Anyway, who doesn’t love basketball?
*Points to the guy who raised his hand*
Ok, first, You need to hit the court. Try the game.
Off topic: I used to love watching NBA, back when Anfernee Hardaway and Shaq played for Orlando Magic. They were my favorite matchup. Then Shaq left Orlando and I never bothered with NBA ever again. Now, the game is just fucked up. There’s a foul every second, either that or everyone is too busy acting the man, calling each other’s moms or what not. Pfft…
Back on topic, So… Yeah… Basketball rocks. Especially Streetball!
I’d definitely join Streetball competitions if only I wasn’t so farking short.
If you haven’t learn by now, Bots are cool.
They do things normal humans can’t. They can cook, fly, has superhuman strength, blow buildings up, Split a planet to two. And yes, they can play Basketball, or rather, Basquash!
The bots in Basquash are known as Big Foots. Which I find the name really suitable, despite the foot of the bots NOT being big. Having a really rugged design really makes the Big Foot feels original. And they wear basketball shoes. I’ll be damned if that isn’t cool!
I wish I could elaborate more, but words fail me. And I just found out that it’s harder to talk about bots than to talk about female characters.
When I say babes, I actually do mean Rouge. She’s already hot as it is, but to pilot a bot and play basketball too. She’s also a little Tsundere. Dang! She’d fit me to a tee!
To Snark, SHE IS MINE!!! So she pilots a bot but I doubt she’s above legal age. Meaning she’s someone you shouldn’t take a liking too.
Oh Shit! Almost forgot to include Sela. Plays basketball, rides a Big Foot, also Hot! Although… cuming over watching or playing good basketball probably means I’ll never satisfy her. Cause my basketball sucks, HARD! I can’t shoot, score, block Jack. All I can ever do is steal. Pffft…
*Allow my slightly pedophile nature to take over*
Actually, I’m also rather fond of Alan Naismith. Short hair, Cap, mechanic clothing, Hot!
The moment she change back to her princess form however, she seemed like the dull brainless character you would find in Pretty Cure or some shit like that.
Oh by the way, I AM actually trying to get hold of this anime called Fresh Pretty Cure. LOLOLOL!!!
It’s switching fansubs like baby switches diapers. So my episodes are messed up. Anyone knows any reliable source? I’m guessing that’s how bad it is.
* Back to usual uptight self*
When I say Balls, I actually do mean it in a GAR manner.
“That guy’s got Ballsz!”
I would have used the word Boys, but it sounded under-manly.
The balls I mean is the type Dan JD lack restraint of. Him crashing around everywhere and anytime he wants to just refills the body of adrenalin over and over again. Even Dan’s pet/companion, Spanky, had balls.
Iceman has balls too. But he’s just too cool that it hides his manhood. Same goes for James Lone.
When I say boobs, I actually do mean Haruka and Miyuki. One representing Jupiter, another representing Neptune.
Unfortunately, like Jupiter, Haruka’s boobs were losing its ability to maintain a perfect sphere, due to the stronger gravity of earth which ultimately makes it sag, as opposed to the low gravity on moon. They actually mention the gravity-sagging-boobs in the anime by the way. As Jupiter, it is slowly “compressing”.
Miyuki’s however, still has a long way to go. Although she would definitely appeal to Ganguro lovers. xp
Violette’s boobs were just plain scary. It was as big as Haruka’s, but it didn’t look human.
So I took her out of the Boobs section.
Initially I wanted to keep this post short and direct. But I guess it turned out to have some SPAM after all.
Oh well, Might as well just add something which I didn’t thought of putting in…
Despite all the ass-kicking Basquash is, I have to say that the 2nd ending theme video was rubbish. The song was good. But the video was horrendous.
Sorry Marin, our romance was short lived. Although you may be a replacement for Belldandy, but you don’t play basketball. And there are lonely nights when I’d wake up in the middle of the night and feel like playing basketball… among other things. Rouge and I, we were made for each other. So I bid thee farewell…
