Hiro has two loves: baseball and porn, but due to an elbow injury, gives up baseball, choosing a school with no baseball team. His childhood friend Hikari attends a different school with baseball ace Hideo. The two of them wish that Hiro had not given up baseball. Hiro joins the soccer team and meets Haruka, a very clumsy girl who is also the daughter of his father's boss. Haruka is the manager of the unofficial baseball club at Hiro's school. When the soccer team challenges the baseball club to a game, with hopes of humiliating them, the baseball club nearly loses until Hiro, disgusted by the soccer team's arrogance, switches to the baseball club.

In a world where Touch and Cross Game exists, H2 is arguably the weakest out of the three. H2, Touch, and Cross Game, are works of Adachi Mitsuru, a man who has a bad habit of using the same character designs, character types, and story set ups during his long career. However, despite the rehashing of his work, I find H2, Touch, and Cross Game all endearing and innocent pieces of anime. I think Cross Game is the absolute perfection of all his years of work, but H2 stands on its own, while it lasts.

i actually enjoyed this very much.
facts, developments, thoughts, emotions are brought to the audience in a very unique way. mainly through the dialogues the viewer could grasp quite a rich world around this baseball boys and their girls. these dialogues are far from being mainstreamed. open, doubting, unclear - freely, the protagonists are communicating. together with the excellent use of some other rather complex literary methods, like leaving the important unsaid, using details to unfold the complete a.o.; and the clever split of the medias to create wrong predictions or also intend contradictions between the heard and the shown, the told and the read more

This could have been way better if it had been a long running series and completed with the manga ending not that i have read the manga yet. The 41 episodes cover less than a 1/3rd of the manga. Because of this the show feels like a prologue to a very good story.
Compared to touch (another work of the manga) h2 feels a bit more mature as the characters have better traits to them. The characters of h2 are witty, strong willed and don't get pushed around whereas the characters of touch were wishy-washy, casual and undignified. The romance in touch was frustrating to say read more

Well first off I did not feel this deserved an 8, but neither a 7. I felt it was more of a 7.5 was good but had to round up.

The story was a pretty good idea I feel. Most sports anime don't have enough romance in there, but I felt this one went a little overboard. They focused to much on the romance and not enough on the baseball which was a disappointing and a little weird. Also the ending was horrible. They needed to carry it on a bit in my opinion because it felt like it was just read more
