Toua Tokuchi is a prodigy when it comes to both baseball and gambling. Pitching nothing but mediocre fastballs, he has made a name for himself by attaining 499 consecutive victories in the game of One Outs: a one-on-one showdown between a pitcher and a batter. Despite his remarkable abilities, however, Tokuchi sees the sport as nothing more than a way to make some quick money.

When Hiromichi Kojima, a legendary hitter for the struggling Saikyou Saitama Lycaons, witnesses Tokuchi's skills firsthand, he realizes that the man might be exactly what the team needs to get out of their slump. Determined to recruit Tokuchi no matter what, Kojima places his own career on the line and defeats Tokuchi at his own specialty—One Outs.

Forced to become a Lycaon, Tokuchi soon finds himself at odds with the team's owner, Tsuneo Saikawa. After Saikawa refuses to give him a reasonable salary, Tokuchi proposes a special contract: pitching an out will earn him five million yen, but giving up a run will cost him fifty million. With every game having the potential to either make or break him, Tokuchi must outwit all who stand in his way.

Just finished the last ep and I am writing this review. First of all the Opening, Ending songs and even the soundtracks are sooo good. If you are tired of watching new gen animes, One out's soundtrack will feel refreshing to you as it's so unique and suits the anime theme. I won't fully recommend this anime if you only came to watch a sports anime. I mean it is a sports anime but the one and only attraction and focus of this anime is definitely Tokuchi Towa. You will get hyped because of him and will enjoy the whole anime because of him. If ...

Mixed Feelings
STORY: 6/10
ART: 8/10
SOUND: 5/10

The anime is good but the story is too messed up. The one outs game, why the owner can't moved on and revised the freaking contract, the slugfest arc where they intentionally made fouls, and the cheating arc. The art I think is very good. Props to Madhoouse. The opening is good that it makes you wanna stay and listen to it first but the background and the ending is not too good for me I guess. The character development for the supporting is lacking to emphasize that the MC is too OP and he's gonna save the day. ...

DISCLAIMER: I wrote this when I was maybe 15 or 16, and while I still think One Outs is repetitive and boring, I think a lot of my criticisms here are unfair. Still, I will not be taking this review down because I like it when One Outs fans come to the comments in my profile and act like there's something here worth debating about. Why don't you go to war for an anime that's actually worth something? Anyways, please enjoy this juvenile rant.


I cannot express to you my level of disbelief at the fact that so many people gave this show a rating above ...
