Baby Steps

Baby Steps

Daily Life, Romance - 2014 (TV)
Ranking: 629

Based on the original manga by Hikaru Katsuki, Baby Steps centers on a honor student named Eiichiro Maruo who becomes frustrated with his life and decides to join the tennis club. Despite lacking experience and physical strength, he utilizes his studious nature to develop a strategic approach to playing tennis. Taking notes of his opponents habits and tendencies, he is able to predict their next move before they even react. He also meets Natsu Takasaki, a beautiful girl with a passion for tennis. With her help, he aims to become a professional tennis player. (Source: Crunchy Roll)

Reviews

   

At the end of the show, there's an announcement that there will be a Second Season in 2015. Will I be in attendance? Only if Maruo is willing to take, rather than Baby Steps, some Giant Strides in some off-the-court areas of his life. - ThemAnime

    

On the other hand, his personal development with other characters isn’t as impressive when it comes to romance. In particular, Baby Steps spends most of its time at the tennis court with Eiirchou being the highlight. And despite not being mainstream, the series is a fine example of a tennis showcase. The first baby step begins with the swing of that racket. - MyAnimeList (Stark700)
