Synopsis

Haruka Kiyomine and Kei Kaname were once recognized as the most formidable pitcher-catcher duo in middle school baseball. Known as the "General," Kaname paired his expert strategies with Kiyomine's explosive pitches, crushing the dreams of many starry-eyed players who hoped to one day make it to the big leagues.

High school freshman Tarou Yamada is one such former player. Having given up on competing, he enrolls in Kotesashi High School—a completely average public school with no baseball team to speak of—where he discovers that his new classmates are the legendary pair who once destroyed his dreams. Adding to this shocking revelation, he learns that amnesia has reduced the once level-headed General to a vulgar class clown. Having lost all interest in baseball, Kaname dragged a disappointed Kiyomine to Kotesashi simply because the school was close to where they live.

As Kotesashi forms a fledgling baseball club, Yamada meets other players he once admired who also left baseball behind. While they might be unwilling now, Yamada believes that if he can convince such talented athletes to start playing again, it might be possible to achieve their dreams and win the national championship—as long as they can put up with Kaname's incessant joking.

Oblivion Battery is a hidden gem of the Spring anime season. It gives you everything you want out of a sports anime: the hype and excitement, the friendship and teamwork, the growth and character development, and on top of that it’s genuinely laugh out loud hilarious.

This anime is not Ace of Diamond (which some people seem to be disappointed about for some reason). It doesn’t have a super original or unique plot. But it doesn’t matter because it does the plot very well. The humor is very teenage boy-ish, but it doesn’t cross the line of being TOO over the top and the comedy ...

Mixed Feelings
Boukyaku Battery is a solid anime for baseball enjoyers, unquestionably. Myself, being a catcher in my high school days, can relate to the pitcher/catcher dynamic, and so I quite enjoyed the series. The show does have a troubled plot, and almost feels like a slice of life. It does present enough growth of the characters and the team, so I had no problem watching week to week. For a MAPPA show, I expected a bit more production value. It is good in some scenes, but cheap looking in the majority.

Animation 7/10
- Some scenes present as "MAPPA", but they are ...

Preliminary (9/12 eps)
I am disappointed that MAPPA has released such a terrible baseball anime. I understand they tried to make a comedy anime, but if you take all the seriousness out of the sport and then add a completely childish main character who doesn't even want to play, it becomes a joke. I don't even understand what this anime is about; there is literally no character development, no joke that is actually funny for people with more than three brain cells, and it's just cringe, very cringe and boring. By episode 9, I thought maybe the anime would take a turn and Kei would regain his memory, ...
