The one thing I really enjoy about Japanese sports anime is that it really tries to teach you about the sport.  With the mainly Japanese based sports, you learn a lot about the culture surrounding the sport as well.  This anime is about archery, which, in Japan, is very different from the US.  That alone would make this one worthwhile to watch for me, but I really like the animation as well.  It's crisp in places and soft in others, giving it a nostalgic feel.  I felt I could really relate to the main character, and followed him into a misunderstanding in the second episode.  Of the other characters, the girls are not there to fawn over the boys or supply unnecessary fan service, and in general the cast isn't too stereotypical.  You can follow the story because you're not anticipating everything they do.  I'll enjoy seeing more of this one.
