[Ended] Ro-Kyu-Bu: Loli Paradise?

Take a typical female sports anime, reduce the age of the characters by 10, you have the formula for Ro-Kyu-Bu. Almost half of the show are devoted to fan service--not just any fan service, loli fan service. In my opinion, it just make it so much more tasteless. But, there's no reason to dislike cute things, so I'm not going to ding them on that.

The layout of the story extremely formulaic, you can almost predict outcome of every single game, even how it would unfold. With that said, however, it's definitely not a bad anime: all characters are very well developed, and there is no lack of excitement even though the plot is completely formulaic. If you are into cute stuff like this, you might still like it.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 77 (Formula Drama)
Comedy: 81 (To certain extends)
Action: 80 (Loli basketball)
Art/Animation: 80 (Loli)
Sound/Music: 80 (Not bad)
Character: 87 (Good development)
Plot: 74 (Highly predictable)
Ending: 80 (You can see that coming)

Re-watch value: 20 (Are you lolicon?)

Overall: 78 -  Lolicon

Recommendation: If you're a big lolicon fan, this is like your paradise. If you like formula sports anime, you probably would like this as well. Otherwise, if your queue isn't too long, it'll be an interesting one to watch.
