This will go over the series as a whole.

Coming off of Diamond no Ace, I really didn't have too much expectation in this show after seeing how jank the animation was half the time, especially with how the movement was choreographed. How do I say this? Balls just felt fast in Diamond no Ace because of how the trajectory was mapped and the angles that the ball went through. When a ball hit the outfield, you had a clear indication of how the ball falls. When a runner gets onto base, it feels like he's running fast. The framing, choreography, and movement in Diamond no ...

Its a great seinen sports anime. You'll somehow learn about the rules or techniques playing baseball. The characters hardworks and efforts. The opponents perspective too.

I don't play baseball but watching the character's everyday life as baseball players is heartwarming. Doing their best in the games.

The characters are great too and funny. Even if it's serious there's comedy.

And i cried a lot.

The seiyuus are great too. The music everything is great. I love the art ...

I have mixed feelings with the ending and in general.
On the one hand, it was a very good and interesting series, but on the other hand, it undoubtedly generated great discomfort in me due to the little content that was adapted, since if we add both seasons, they were a total of 38 chapters and we agree that for a "Spokon" it is a number small enough to be able to be carried in a way that leaves a satisfactory ending for everyone, that is a true closure and not an open ending of which we will no longer know more about it. The animation ...
