Synopsis

In the summer before Ren Mihashi makes his high school baseball debut, another drama is playing out at Musashino High. The short-statured Naoto Kaguyama feels threatened by freshman pitcher Motoki Haruna after seeing how seriously he trains. Afraid that Haruna will take his place on the mound, Kaguyama tries to understand why such a devoted player came to their low-ranked school, and how to build their team into one more befitting of a player of Haruna's skill.

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 ...

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.
