Yamato just transferred to a big city high school, where the slacker finds himself smitten with track star Suzuka – but she’s totally out of his league. She’s pretty, popular, and she’s got something to prove. When Yamato joins the track team to impress the steely beauty, he sees that running the race isn’t enough. He’ll have to go the distance if he wants to break through to Suzuka’s guarded heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Is Not a Spectator Sport! (Sad But True) August 18, 2009
Format:DVD
If your anything like me then high school might stand out in your mind as those four awkward years when you realized you liked someone. Like "LIKE" liked someone. Unless your life was perfect at least one of these realizations probably led to heartbreak of one kind or another. This is where a majority of Suzuka's appeal was for me.

For the price you can get the entire series for (I believe I purchased it for just over twenty dollars), I would mark it as an excellent buy. Twenty six episodes are contained on four disks which have art(probably from the manga) on them and look quite pretty. The case is plastic and holds four dvds (two overlapping on each side of the inside of the box). Now onto the actual show!

Okay, so maybe that was a little vague. Truthfully this show contains elements of comedy as well as romance, but throughout the series the two are distinctly separated. This is to say, while those looking for a comedy fix might enjoy Suzuka thoroughly for all its awkward approaches by the main character, I found that the heart of the series lay well... in it's heart.

The main reason I found myself following this series was its tendency towards realism. Something not usually found in anime concerning love at first sight. Akitsuki Yamato is an incoming freshmen in high school in Tokyo who, while walking by the track one day, falls for a high jumper named Asahina Suzuka. Unlike many shows where the female lead visibly shows affection from the get go this series is paced so that you honestly can't tell whether all of Akitsuki's efforts to win the girl's heart will pay off until the very last episode. The characters develop at a steady pace and it never feels like the story is being rushed because of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing anime that caught me off-guard March 5, 2009
Format:DVD
This was quite possibly the most amazing and complex romance I've ever seen in anime. The series is completely character-driven (with only the slightest indications of a deus ex machinae to help set up certain situations). The characters all have their own personality flaws, and you really have to pay attention to the dialogue for the subtext that helps you understand these people. Once on that level you can see the chess game being played here to overcome emotional obstacles despite personal flaws. Every moment in this show was very rewarding, and I couldn't stop watching until I got to the end!

This series is not for children, though. There's no real nudity or bad language--it's just not many children would appreciate what's going on here.

Holy cow! I'm in love with Suzuka! This is a great story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Romance Series. October 19, 2012
By KevinB
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yamato moves in with his Aunt, who runs an apartment complex and bath house for women. His neighbor, Suzuka, turns out to be a classmate and he becomes captivated by her beauty and determination. He joins the track team to become closer to her and try to understand her. Suzuka is a hard sell with a damaged heart, and Yamato is going to have to get the gold to impress her.

This is one of the best romance animes I've seen. It's a very touching and emotionally heavy story. There are lots of great characters and plot twists. The thing that makes this anime great for me is the character development. You really get a great understanding of th characters and why they think the way do. There is nothing about this anime that isn't fantastic. I think anyone can get a lot of enjoyment out of it. It's a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A realistic romantic comedy.... July 8, 2009
Format:DVD
Suzuka is probably one of the more original animes I've seen of late because unlike most other series that take place in outer space or in earth-like locations where the laws of physics are just a bit more interesting than on good old planet earth Suzuka takes place in present day Japan. There are no super powers, no cute fuzzy creatures, no robots, and no cute alien women with jiggly body parts. What's left is a very realistic romantic comedy that actually deals with issue that real folks are likely to encounter. Odd that this would actually make an anime unique, but in what is essentially a comic book driven genre in this case - it does.

That said, Suzuka does a masterful job of actually developing its characters and slowly revealing all the complex issues and underlying emotions that drive them. At times it's awkward and uncomfortable, but then again so was high school. So all in all, a great series for folks looking for a story about people and the only regret I have is that I suspect there won't be a follow up to this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good November 26, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched this on a whim on Hulu a while back, thinking it was going to be an anime about school and sports. Sure, it has those things, but there is a lot more. It tells the story of a boy caught up with the fantasy of being with the one girl in school everyone dreams of being with, but never says it out loud. The story comes together a little slow, but you eventually get into it and even begin to cheer for the main character as he strives not only to win over Suzuka, but also accomplish his own track and field goals. There are a few rather funny moments in the series so it doesn't become overly serious except when it needs to be. When it all ends, you expect it, but it's still just as satisfying. I found myself wishing the story would go on.
