Synopsis

In 1925 (year 14 of the Taisho era) baseball is still quite unknown in Japan and there are only a few male teams. After being told by a baseball player that women should become housewives instead of going to school, 14-year-old Akiko invites her friend Koume to start a baseball team in order to prove him wrong. During this time, when even running was considered too vulgar for women, baseball is known as "what the boys do" and they face many difficulties when having to find enough members, to get permission from their parents and also when learning about the sport itself, which they soon discover to be more difficult than expected.

Taishou Yakyuu Musume was a nice surprise in this Summer 2009 season.

While most "moe-oriented" shows nowadays tend to let their own cuteness take over and steal the spotlight, Taishou avoids this pitfall by not letting go of the baseball focus but few times when to flesh out their characters.
As a slice-of-life show, the most remarkable aspect in this anime is the setting, which takes place in Japan’s 20s, providing an interesting background for the story to unfold. The cultural differences between now and then are definitely the show’s greatest highlight, because it not even once stops being interesting. This show is a great look on read more

I loved the idea of Japanese girls forming their own school baseball team in 1925, and I wasn't disappointed. Though the show is sadly short (and it could've done much more with a longer run), the 12 episode series was still very enjoyable by itself. The feminist vibe ran through the whole course of the show; it's true they were not met by obstacles they couldn't eventually overcome, but it wasn't completely unrealistic. The girls still struggled to be taken seriously.

There are few intense baseball moments as it is mainly a slice-of-life type of show with very tiny hints of romance (with or read more

Well. Taishou Yakyuu Musume is very recent . The only few episodes I have watched, left a good impression on me.This anime is dammed good. I can clearly say that the charm and values in 1925 are very well presented in this anime. This anime tends to much comedy, through the innocent thinking of the main characters.

The fact that it’s set in 1925 Japan adds an extra layer to this show, since baseball was both first starting, and girls were still expected to be “proper” and not engage in such things at the time, so the girls organizing the team still have to do so read more

Taishou yakyuu musume had the misfortune to be on my schedule soon after Ookiku furikabutte, and since the latter shone brightly, the former paled rather severely. well, in some ways that's the fairest way to judge a show, in comparison to its peers.

the story's premise is quite promising, a show about girls playing baseball in the early taishou period (1920s) could be very interesting. alas, this anime doesn't strike a blow for realistic feminism, indeed it doesn't even try. some lip service is paid to resistance by others, but in fact there are no real difficulties to overcome, even the 11th hour read more
