The animation was good, I thought the popular kid looked a lot like the standard anime rival. The voice acting was ok, but the narrator sounded like they were doing a bad Russian accent.
The only anime tropes I noticed this was lacking were the Internal monologues where the antagonist (or the rival) is like "OH! How can he be so powerful, his power level is increasing so quickly I will have to fight even harder to defeat him" and then the antagonist proceeds to kick the ever loving shit out of the protagonist. The other one was the standard grunt sequence where multiple characters gasp/grunt/orgasm at the someone's power. Like *protagonist enters a higher form* "AH!" "UH!" "GUH!" "GAH!" Oh, I'm cumming!" "RRG!"
I would definitely like to see more of these. MAKE MOAR!
