Cast & Credits
So, when I found out about the live action series, I was very hesistant to watch it. What if it's horrible? Will it ruin the manga/anime for me?
In the end I did watch it and man, was I impressed. The acting is great, I even sometimes forgot that this is a fictional story. At times it felt like a documentary to me.
Another thing that impressed me was how much story they managed to press into 11 episodes without making the viewer feel overwhelmed by so much content.
Overall this drama portrays the world of volleyball and the struggles of the players much more realistically than the anime or the manga did.
So, if you enjoy sports dramas, dramas about friendship or if you need something ridiculously motivating you might want to watch this one.
The acting by most of the actors was really superb. Ueto Aya's acting once again managed to get me angry whenever she was being immature. Something that is rare in dramas, is character development, sometimes it just doesn't happen, but in "Attack no 1" you see that by the end of it they mature through the hardships and things that they are taught by their experience.
The music of this drama is sang by Ueto Aya herself and it is needless to say that it is very motivating. Yume no Chikara, the power of dreams, certainly complimented the drama. The countrack also was very fitting and it went so well.
I think that since this is a sports drama, rewatching it would still be amusing though, nothing is like the first time.
