Boys join and whine about skirts. Boys uniforms are made. Team has to prove itself against aforementioned soccer team...more
A disappointing second part to the series. To get Anya's team accepted by the principal they have to play the schools primary football team.

Even though the drawing style is very pretty, the book is a bit of a let down. The whole story is basically Anya moping around un different places and being incredibly annoying. Apart from Leon we don't get to know any of the other characters and there are plenty to be introduced.
Hopefully the 3rd part will pick up it's pace.
I was a little disappointed in the second volume of Gothic Sports. I really liked the first, but the pacing seemed to be all off this time around. The big soccer game was about 75% talking when it should have been 100% exciting. The gameplay was good when it happened, but it took forever. Also, the English script needs a lot more polish. It's often stiff and awkward.

Beautiful art, though. Anike Hage is a real talent. Her art and storytelling remind me less of Japanese language manga, and more li...more
[Ch. 7-12:]

The volume was okay. Probably would've been better if I actually remembered what happened in the last volume, but I don't really feel like going back and re-reading it.

Yay to Anya's team for doing well, even though they lost.
LOL, I can't believe she has a skirt for part of her uniform.

I hope Anya gets over that past incident with Leon. Honestly, it's a stupid reason to remain mad at someone over something like that.

I read the book Gothic Sports written by Anike Hage. If I were to rate it it would break my scale. Four stars for sure. I gave ti this rating because it was something I would like to read again. It's amazing. I would recommend it to everybody because it made me want to read it. It was a feeling and I wanted to find out the ending.
A little better than the first volume. Not much soccer action, not much to do with gothic clothing other than it's just being there, and with the mystery of Anya's hatred for Leon being solved, I personally don't have much interest in continuing to read this series.
The series started out well, but this second volume just wasn't very good. The plot doesn't develop much more and any interest in the characters and their problems was lost.
Not bad, though to be honest it apparently wasn't very memorable, because I don't really remember what happened.

cute soccer story. I am not a soccer fan but my students especially girls will like this.
Still going good, but it's becoming boring...
