This episode is a side story about Haruna, who was a small supporting character in the regular season of Ookiku Furikabutte. (I read somewhere that this story was actually written first.) It can be watched alone without seeing the series and doesn't expect you to know anything about the rest of the show. So... even if you haven't seen Oofuri, you can watch this!! ;D

This single episode tells the story of a really good high school rookie and the dynamic he creates on his new high school's baseball team; more specifically, how another pitcher reacts when faced with all the talent and read more

Rate an 8
English Dubbed

I will stagger a guess. i believe one of your thoughts is why an 8? Why not lower or better yet higher?

Art wise this work is wonderful. The characters along with the scenery is rich in color. Animations are smooth.

Sound- crisp and clear

Characters- individualistic and ripe with personal aspects.

Nice information but hasn't answered the question. At least not yet...

Story is what makes a show and why my eight. If you were blessed and saw the original show you saw many things. The most notable is the fact is it is about baseball. Well, why that is true there is more to that read more
