Spin-off of Teekyuu. – My Anime List
Based on 7 review scores:
A Better Teekyuu!
I am hopeful Usakame will turn out to be another great comedic tennis club short; and who knows maybe they’ll actually play some tennis this time!

Usakame, for me, was one of the bigger disappointments of the past season. Coming off from Teekyuu especially, I was left astounded, confused, but mostly bored, and curious as to how boring this series ended up being.
This is a pleasant enough comedy series although it does lack the manic intensity of ‘Teekyu’ which is a bit of a pity. The stories are fun enough but ultimately fairly forgettable. The animation is pretty good given the length of the episode. Overall an OK series that fans of all things ‘Teekyu’ will want to see even if it isn’t as good.
It’s only 40 minutes so I wouldn’t blame you if you watched it, especially if you like Teekyu (so you can get more of you fix). There are better shorts that came out recently such as Ojisan and Marshmallow that I would watch first.
