Synopsis

Minami joins her High School baseball team as a team manager after finding out that her best friend Yuuki is in the hospital and can't be a team manager any more. In order to try to fill in for Yuuki and to help out the team the best she can, she goes out to find a book on how to manage a baseball team.

Unfortunately, she accidentally buys Peter Drucker's book called "Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices" which is actually about how to properly manage a business. Because she couldn't return the book, she decides to read it anyway and to try to apply the business management concepts to the baseball team so that way they can go on and win the Nationals.

As the person who wrote the recommendation for bartender so cleverly recognized, this anime is not really about sports or baseball. Baseball is simply the medium in which the main message is conveyed.

The plot of the story: "What happens when you apply business management strategies to baseball"? A normal highschool girl who wants to help her friend achieve the dream of taking their baseball team to the koshien picks up a book on management, and uses its principles to managing the team.

Unlike other anime that draws excitement from having one or more "godly" protagonists who are somehow able to always pull through by read more

'Moshidora' is based on a best selling Japanese novel (translated) 'What If the Girl Manager of a High School Baseball Team Read Drucker's "Management"?' I am not making this up, the title really is that long. The anime title is an abbreviation.
The novel may have swept No.1 spot in every major book ranking chart in Japan with over 2.5 million copies sold in less than a year and half, but the anime adaptation is nothing but complete and utter failure.

One can tell how badly this show was neglected within minutes. Almost all the characters and backgrounds are nearly frozen! Not only that, there is absolutely read more

I normally don't like sports animes, nothing against fans of the genre but for me, I dislike the unrealistic depictions of the games and how a single game spans many episodes, often to the detriment of character development.

In "Moshidora" I was even more apprehensive because the premise (a girl inadvertently buys a business book about management, but sticks with it to find guidance in managing a baseball team) seemed like the "it's funny because she's cute and therefor dumb but look she's trying to do smart stuff" subgenre, which I don't really like.

What I actually found in this series was pretty decent. The episodes read more

One big question in deciding whether to watch Moshidora or not is to ask yourself if you like realistic anime. There are no "power ups" and the characters are very human.

Story (9): A key concept to this anime is applying business theory to managing a baseball team. For example "Marketing" is useful to the team because people can find beneficial interactions (e.g. joint practice with track team). I think this concept is executed well enough though. It is slow but every development makes sense. The pacing actually reminds me more of cross game than one outs or major although read more
