At only 12 years old, Takumi Harada is already hailed as a prodigious baseball pitcher. But when his family moves to the backwater town of Nitta, Takumi has no choice but to join his new school's unskilled baseball team. This development has little effect on the boy, as he believes it is more interesting if this no-name club becomes a powerhouse due to his presence. However, due to his overwhelming talent, Takumi is in need of a catcher able to keep up with his pitches.

His worries are soon put to rest after meeting Gou Nagakura. As his fan and fellow student, Gou is eager to prove that he is not a simple braggart, but rather a player skillful enough to catch Takumi's pitches. Amid struggling to form a "battery" with Gou, Takumi comes into conflict with his new teammates due to his irreverent personality but grapples to find the true joy of the sport under his grandfather's guidance.

I had struggled in the beginning to enjoy it, and I had to pick up the show and give it another chance, and here I am today writing what I hope can convince you to give a try to this refreshing baseball anime.

• Story : 8/10 •
I started this series expecting another basic sporty anime, involving intensity, friendship, rivalry, energy, passionate youngster being too exited, and easy-going interactions.
Well, you can cross the last 3 terms. ...

Mixed Feelings
Since the first episode, I knew something was different about this anime series in particular, and to my suprise I was right to feel that it was indeed different than any other sports anime I have binge watch up until now. The show actually presented to us viewers in duality form, where I guess the series tried to portray how the lgbt community faces issues against society in the form of through baseball and it's characters. For example, Takumi being an angst teen not liking the coach pointing out his long hair or not liking anyone touching his wrist or shoulder. Moreover, all the dailougues ...

I love baseball.

Through anime, baseball became my favourite sport. Seeing it brings me joy. Seeing it brings me hype. I adore it to my very core and I'm always up to watch some baseball....but Battery, oh god, Battery was a disappointment in more than one way.

First thing first, I did not expect it to be full sport focused. I already knew that there were going to be some drama. I was ready for that but well, the anime's drama just didn't go well with me.

I just don't like the main character.

He is very arrogant and stubborn. He won't back down no matter what. Even ...
