Story: Ok with out giving any spoilers this show is basically about a group of girls that were braught together to form an a girls baseball team and enter into the baseball tournament which only has boy baseball teams, this may not sound interesting at first thats understandable since i know many people arent into sport themed or sport based shows but this one is different. This show tells us the story of how the all girls baseball team overcomes different problems and shows the true power of woman/girls unlike those fantasy style shows where the girls always have something in them from the past read more

Some people consider this anime to be just another sports anime. In actuality, Princess 9 is very likely the worst sports anime to ever have been made.

I had my reservations when looking at the cover, but figuring it was probably just made in the late 80's, I picked it up. My estimation was roughly a decade off. The great character designs attempt to hide this fact, but unfortunately my sympathy vanished when the story began to circle the drain.

The series begins promisingly enough, the first 8 or so episodes are decent, and in fact the last few are too. The fact that read more

This one proved quite the mixed bag throughout its run for me. Princess Nine is a sports drama about a baseball team of girls trying to overcome adversity and prejudice to be acknowledged as equals to the boys when they try to get involved in the national tournament to take part in competition at Koshien Stadium. Much of the series focuses around the team coming together and dealing with a number of obstacles that halt their efforts at competing in the Koshien tournament such as the school principal, tensions between some of the teammates and scandal. The series does give focus to the personalities and read more

Princess Nine was in a word, underwhelming. The sports anime genre consisting of literal hundreds of animes really only has 16 true "sports" animes focusing on girls, and Princess Nine was my first one. In terms of idea, the plot of Princess Nine was pretty solid. I was ready to start cheering for a girl's baseball team taking on boys; however it was the execution that failed for me.
Personally, I look for two things in a sports anime: coming out of the anime with more knowledge about the sport than I came in with and seeing a strong team dynamic. Princess Nine really read more
