THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
OH NO! Momoko's gonna fall for that bastard! FOUL!!! heh.

Oh well its an obvious choice. But they sure like to rotate Goro's parents around don't they. Other than that the whole Black Triangle thing was very anime but it cant be helped. Overall a good ep.

he's not really a bad guy, but I can't really get on board with the idea of him replacing Goro's dad. I just hope his mom doesn't die after this :/

Bah,too much luck in this game.Those suckers on Goro's team should improve sooner cuz it's just painful to watch this kind of two-men baseball.

Shigeno can always remarry after that.Then he could die himself and Goro's third mother would take care of him.
Now it's pretty much obvious that Momoko's gonna marry Shigeno(i'd love it if she didn't),I don't really see the point of his dad dying.Or even his mother.It kinda looks like their deaths were just intentional tearjerkers.Don't like that...

Pretty sure his dad dying is his primary motivation though. And, Mommoko has every damn right to be happy. Or, would you people like for her to grow old and alone?

Well shit, next episode is going to be awkward . . . Or rather the situation is going to be semi-awkward if Shigeno and Momoko start dating, although too be honest, it is weird that it has been three years and she still hasn't dated at all. I can understand why I suppose, but I mean she was only dating Goro's dad for like a few months tops. The mourning period is over 10 times the length of the period she was together with him . . .

Well, honestly, I can't be mad at the MomokoxShigeno thing. It will probably feel like a betrayal of Shigeharu to Goro, but you know, she have been a monoparental mom for 3 years, with a son who don't always view her as his mom. She probably feel a bit lonely and don't want to stay alone for the rest of her life. How could I be mad in a situation like that?

On the match itself, who would have thought that Shimizu, the baseball klutz, would have been the hero? I mean, with Goro of course, since he kept them in the game and hit that homerun.

I didn't like that. It really felt like "Hey look, girls too can do things !" ... She finally did something useful and it felt forced as hell.

I can probably endure that nickname nonsense for stupid techniques or formations when they're still kids. I mean, even real kids do that sometimes. But If they continue that later on it'll just be painful to watch.

Really, did they actually win their first game because of luck -_- Not only was this arc a bit hard to watch because of the whole black triangle thing but then they end up winning because of errors. The fact that a 4th grader figured out that they should start bunting instead of their coach is a bit troubling as well >_>

Well it's not entirely luck, it's just that Shimizu's poor hit managed to show a hole in their defense. In the end, Goro did win fair and square. Gibson would probably hate this match with passion though lol.

I figured they should try bunting before even starting this episode, so I'm not sure why the coach didn't recommend it. I guess they didn't expect the infielders to be that bad?

Still, it was a nice episode.

I feel like some people in this topic are super unfun. Not all games are won through pure skill and grit; even pros can get a lucky (or unlucky) break. That's especially true for Little League. Further, the names and such didn't even register to me as something odd since they're kids. What is that to get annoyed over?

And finally, I think it's okay for Momoka to want to date Shigeno and even potentially marry him, but I also think she should give weight to what Gorou thinks about it while he's still a kid. Remarriages can be really tough on children, and it wasn't like this was something that was forced onto Momoka either. As an overall possibility I'm neutral on the matter; a lot of it would depend on how it played out.

First victory, yay.

And Momoko finally decided to give love another chance?
Kokoro did nothing wrong.

Glad to see Shimizu being useful in a match for once. Also looks like it's time for Hoshino to date again.

Since Gorou now calls Momoko "mum", does that mean that if Momoko gets married to Shigeno, Gorou would start calling him "dad"? :/
