Because of the legend left by Tatsuya Uesugi, Meisei Academy High School was well-known for their strong baseball team. But 26 years after their glory, the team has not been able to keep their record and has since lost their fame.
Two stepbrothers, Souichirou and Touma Tachibana, aim to revive of the once-strong Meisei Academy baseball team and enter the National High School Baseball Championship.
Souichirou and Touma are second years in Meisei Academy Middle School. Both boys are talented baseball players. Souichirou has shown excellent skill as a catcher and batter. Though having an extraordinary skill as a pitcher, Touma no longer pitches due to a certain reason.
Once the two enter high school, they pair as a battery and aim to enter the National High School Baseball Championship!
I quite admit Mix is surprisingly good anime and here is why. First of all it has this good family spark in it and we learn a story about two families merged into one. Brothers are looking nearly the same but they really aren't blood related ones. This anime kind of hits us in the moments that we didn't expect it. Anime touches hard theme because teams manager is favorising chairmans sons who appears to be all-time starting pitcher no matter of results. In general Touma has hard time because of this situation he can't event have his own good training time because manager is
only looking at chairmans son and he doesn't bother how the others are doing, or maybe this is how author of story would like us to think it is? To be honest it's more slice of life/school anime than a sports one but maybe in second part od season we will see more games.
Art and animations has this old style that's easy to remember for those whom watched many '80's anime series. Still it's more than decent, even more than good I will even call it great. I like voice acting here it's also brings some memories from the past. Baseball game sounds are polished and done well. When ball lands in the mitt or is hit by the bat, the sound is clear and obvious, and very real. Character development may look a bit slow but in general it time flies quickly in Mix so you need to watch it carefully to not miss boys advancing to high school. Overall I can easy give it 9. It will be 10 if only there will be a bit less of slice of life and more of action.
