After suffering from a shoulder injury, shy first-year university student Haruki Bandou gladly takes the opportunity to give up judo, failing to find happiness in the sport regardless of his family owning a dojo. He did not expect, however, that his best friend Kazuma Hashimoto would also decide to leave their university’s judo club at the same time as him. Despite Haruki’s protests, Kazuma already has plans for a new and revolutionary activity: a cheerleading team made up of only men. Although heavily reluctant, Haruki ends up helping his friend set up the team. Through sheer determination, and with support from their newfound club members, Haruki and Kazuma persist in founding the Breakers, the first ever all-male cheerleading team of Meishiin University, slowly making history in spite of the feminine tag attached to the sport of cheerleading and the prejudices, physical challenges, and self-doubts that inevitably follow. – My Anime List

This anime was fairly straightforward and mildly interesting. I liked the idea of the all male Cheer Squad and the characters were fun, but this was otherwise nothing extraordinary and was more or less average.
My Anime List
I would consider this a must watch for fans of the sports genre and a refreshing show for anyone who is just bored and needs a good time filler.
I was excited about this anime and wanted to like it, but it ended up being a crushing disappointment faster than you can yell, “Go team!”
Overall, it is a very simple and sweet anime, but is unable to come close to the standards of sports animes like ‘Free!’ or ‘Haikyuu!!’. I feel slightly disatisfied at the end of each episode and it lacks the drama and excitement that is supposed to come from most sport animes.
