Here's an old series which turned up in fansub form recently. I had never heard of it, but apparently it's been dubbed into Spanish, French, Italian and Polish. It immediately became apparent that volleyball would be the premise of this show; OK, I said to myself, I'll give it a look. Attacker You (apparently "You" is a play on Yuu's first name) is a fairly amusing show, for instance the way Yuu's little brother embarasses her during an important match. I'd describe the mood here as low grade silliness, backed up by not worrying too much about what's really physically possible. The fantastic serves Nami is capable of remind me of those samurai swordsmanship techniques which can supposedly blow an opponent off his feet without him even making contact with the blade. The quality of music and animation are what's only to be expected from a show of this age (though the 80's music seemed kind of fun to me). The simple dialogue seldom required pausing to read subtitles. This is a series which would appeal principally to those who are curious about how anime came to become what it is. I'm guessing this was a fairly average show of the mid-80's; it became semi popular in Europe but I don't recall anyone ever mentioning it in any other anime I've watched, like they sometimes mention shows like Gundam and Cat's Eye.
P.S: Am I the only one who thought Yuu's father looks like a certain well-known anime character?
