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.

Taisho Baseball Girls is a sincere and lighthearted love letter to the period. While there is undoubtedly a focus on baseball, much of the story also involves the experience of 1920s Japan. The show really works to earn its title as a Taisho era piece of fiction despite its bubbly, upbeat tone and themes. Though mildly anachronistic, with some of its character's attitudes being closer to what you would find in modern Japan, it is hardly an issue since the show does not aim to be in-depth historical fiction. The series aims to explore the relatively straightforward story of girls pushing the boundaries of socially ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Similar to Cross Game, Taishou Yakyuu Musume tries to engage in different genres and doesn't nearly invest in any of them for you to care. While it's kind of nice to see a change of pace with the combination of CGDCT meshing with something sporty, like baseball, this show doesn't execute the two themes very well. If something like Girls und Panzer, where girls fight in tanks can be done well, surely baseball and cute girls can also be done.
Well, clearly it's not the traditional baseball show. The women's baseball team isn't playing against other women in a competitive league, but rather playing against ...
