Some (Hopeful) Reassurance for Concerned Ballroom E Youkoso Fans

There have been concerns expressed by fans of the Ballroom E Youkoso manga who feel the animation in the anime adaptation is not up to snuff. And, truthfully, they’re right. The manga itself is, in my humble opinion, a masterpiece with exceptional attention to detail and quality of movement.

(This is in no way a guarantee. The tag just seemed a bit down lately.)
