    “Whenever you played table tennis, you had such a good time you’d forget any injury. Your knee will be fine.”

    Ping Pong the Animation is one of the most enjoyable experiences I’ve had in a very long time. This eleven episode series, which I consider to be one of my new all time favorite shows, is such an exciting and lovable series that I’m very glad to have started now.

    It’s moments like when you see the ladder has been taken away or when Niki (the main character) gets stuck in quick sand when trying to escape that you get hit in the chest and feel the struggle that the protagonist is feeling.
