Now something in this episode caught my attention! There are a pair of twin sisters that do not look like twins (as usual) and they seem to be pretty “tight”!! hehe Well not quite Candy Boy’s scale but one definitely does get a tad jealous when the other receives a lot of attention from the underclassmen! haha I’m talking about Shizuka and Tomoe! I though Tomoe’s voice was very familiar and turns out it’s Amane-senpai from Strawberry Panic!! She has blue hair too!!! And do I see a UNIFORM!?! Now, this episode has really grabbed my attention. hehehehe
One other thing – looks like our Tomoe has her eyes on Koume-san! And Shizuka does NOT like the attention her dear “onee-chan” is paying to this girl!! So FUNNY!
Basically, a high level summary of the story would be: It’s 1925, a time when some school girls are still wearing a kimono…two high school girls decide to setup an all girls’ baseball team but it’s tough as it is not seen as lady like. To make it worse, Akiko (the girl who’s driving the idea) wants to play against BOYS!
At first I was not impressed at all. Probably because of the time period in which the anime is set, plus the permanent two red “blushes” on the main character’s face is so annoying!! Argh! I don’t think it makes her look any cuter!
However, then mid-way through, Akiko explains why she had this idea. Turns out that she was in a conversation with a boy who made the condescending remark that a girl’s place in society is in the household. There is no need for them to have a brain. (Ok, he didn’t QUITE put it in those terms but something along the lines of that.) That pissed Akiko off so she’s adamant to come up with a baseball team and play against boys because that boy is a baseball player. Silly as it sounds, this did put a positive spin into the story for me.
These girls know NOTHING about baseball so it will be tough but then I like the ‘spirit’ behind it. So far there is no yuri…not sure whether there’d be any but surely there will be some “blush” scenes?! hahaha Oh and there is something to look foward too! There’s Mamiko Noto (dark green hair girl) and Kana Ueda (pig tails)! It’s been ages since I’ve watched Mamiko so I liked it once her character came on screen!
I don’t think the anime is that great but I will watch episode 2…maybe…
hashihime has done ANOTHER amazing summary of what’s to come this season!! Well first of all – the below are on the top of MY “to-watch” list!!! ^_______^ Oh and just to give you a heads up, if it’s got ANY signs of yuri or has one of my favourite seiyuus, I’m basically there!!! hahaha
Do I need to say MORE?!?! HEHEHEHE But there are THREE surprises!!! At least for me!! Are you ready??
- One of the supporting seiyuus will be Mamiko Noto!!!! YAY!!!!
- One of them will be Aki Toyosaki!! Who’s that?! It’s YUI from K-ON!!! She will be voicing Miwa Mogi…hmm…who’s that!? OMG! Just realised!! “Yui” & “Mugi” (Minako Kotobuki) are BOTH in a lot of the new anime!!! ^____^ More later!!
- The music will also be done handled by Haketa Takefumi who was in charge of Vampire Knight’s OST!!! Now THAT’s something to look forward too!!
Can’t WAIT!!!! It’s here on 1 July!!
