Synopsis

This is the story of Natsunosuke Honda, a pro baseball player—a relief pitcher who has been playing pro in a team called Spiders for 8 years. The team operates as a highly-stratified society, where the player's performance determines his annual salary. Natsunosuke is one of the highest paid players in the game. He measures how good players are by how much money they make, and he intends to be on top and stay there, and as such is always looking for players to challenge and does everything to insure that he is better than they are.

Gurazeni is not an underdog story. It's not about high stakes or becoming the best that anyone ever was. Bonda is just a baseball player. A middle relief pitcher, one of the most forgotten positions in the game. This story is about the day to day life of an athlete, hoping that he can just survive after the game. It's a side that many of us don't normally think about. Hell, a lot of athletes don't think about it either. It's incredibly cool to get an inside look at how he handles the stress of being a professional baseball player while also trying to handle ...

If you've ever watched a sports anime before, you know that they have some very unrealistic tendencies. There are plenty of non-sports fans who actually enjoy sports anime. The reason being that those shows are closer to anime than they are to the sport they are portraying in the story. Gurazeni does not follow that pattern. It's a sports anime that portrays the sport as close to real as one can in the medium.

Story:
The story follows a middle relief pitcher in a Japanese baseball league modeled after Japan's NPB. He plays for a team stylized after the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, with many other teams being ...

Mixed Feelings
This show is just so...mediocre it hurts.

It's by no means a terrible show, but nothing sets it apart at all in any way shape or form. This show is about a professional relief pitcher, but as the episodes go on and on, you realize that this show basically is just an episodic anime about baseball with Bando interacting with different characters each episode. It feels like every episode is just a random episode with a random character with Bando in it. These standalone episodes are not BAD, it's just not good. It does not culminate into anything, and nor are the individual episodes good enough ...
