This was my favourite episode so far. Probably 'coz it's the first time we get to see a game (well half of it).
Strong points in the characters. Some less noticeable, has expected, since it's a big team. Mihashi it's a bit annoying at times, with all that crying but I don't dislike him. It would be great if he gets a lot of development during the anime, has I expect he will. Abe is probably my favourite atm. calm, inteligent... Tajima is great too, the l33t player of a newbie team, "a blessing from heaven", haha. That scene with him pointing up all the numbers in record time was great.
That's another thing I'm enjoying atm. The original (I think.. not too many sports animes watched) exercises they've been doing too bump important abilities.
The animation style is pretty good too. Not very common, but still great.

I'm interested to see what's gonna happen in the next episode. and see if they'll be able to win bump Mihashi's confidence.

Great epidsode. Mihashi is the annoying/weak type of player yet i dont dislike him either. I loved the interaction between Abe and Mihashi, it was very touching. I cant wait to see the next episode cause sports anime are all about the games they play.

So far I hate Mihashi very much, but that translates into me liking Abe that much more for handling him. And that Kanou is a nice fellow, the guy most affected by Mihashi is the guy that is most friendly with him.

Usually I hate the type of characters like Mihashi, but still I dunno why I don't hate him.

there's a definite shounen-ai undertone here lol

I really wish they'd cut the long winded explanations :(
it feels like they have no respect whatsoever for the intelligence of their audience :/

Mihashi is so lucky to have his hands held by Okazaki Tomoya.

Three episodes in, and I'm already shipping Abe/Mihashi. This is not a good sign for my fangirl heart.


Girl, that's been me since episode one. And it's been so worth it! Seriously, that scene in the bushes (ahem...) felt like a confession; they didn't even try to be skillful about wording it. I think this hand-holding is going to be a trend,a dn I'm loving it.^^o lovely.^0^

Nooo! Why so BL? T_T

"I like you, not just as a pitcher!"
me: -headdesk-

This BL annoys me. It's like fanservice. It may work in some series, but it ruins others. =.=

However, I'm starting to really like this anime. :D

That former catcher teammate of Miyoshi is a super bully. But I hope Miyoshi can finally overcome his guilt and show to his former teammates that he has potentials. Good thing his current teammates now are really good guys..

Not a fan of BL, but I was laughing so hard at the holding hands scene because it was so awkward.

Likewise. I hope the fanservice doesn't get in the way of the plot development.

Hand-holding is a yay. Old Catcher-kun is quite the arse - out of proportion to Mihashi's sins, so hopefully the new battery is going to give them their just desserts.

The OP and ED really are so enjoyable.

English-Abe finds his own. English-Mihashi's still shaky but improving. Everything is 10x more embarrassing in English (//◇//)-3 b-but I-I like it, too!

Hits right to the feel-icenter. Help, I'm in quake city.

At the start of the episode I really wanted to pick up a big boulder, and hit Mihashis head hard... but I do kind of understand his problems... A really irritating character, but I feel like he might turn out better after a while.

A good show so far! Oh, and btw, the coach is awesome!

It really needs to come fast because I'm just ... wringing my hands together to prevent myself from want to choke some sense into him.

Hahahaha, Mihashi is so cute.
There's a limit to how much a person can improve on his own. Rivals acknowledge each other and compete to get better. That's why they can train so hard. That's why they continue to improve. And they will always far exceed our expectations. -Coach Kataoka (Diamond no Ace S2 8)

Usually I have high tolerance toward wimpy main characters as they are pretty common in anime but Mihashi is triggering me hard. Pretty much this anime is gear toward fangirls, however so far this feel more like a sports anime than Cross game.

Okay, the hand holding scene wasn't that gay, and the whole "I like you" obviously means friends. A lot of bromance, but nothing very gay. Most sports anime are like this anyway, they just hide it and spread it out.

I normally despise pathetic characters, no matter the gender. I can't tolerate them at all. But I can't dislike Mihashi and I actually kind of like him. He has real problems and isn't just pathetic for no reason. I'm glad he has a good team and Abe to support him now. He's set up to have a very memorable and nice character development and I'm greatly looking forward to it.

This is the exact reason why I love Mihashi's character, despite him looking absolutely pathetic. His issue is a real trauma, it's not just there for the character development, like it was in most of the other anime with this type of character. He is not pathetic just because, if you get what I mean.

Which is why I feel like this assessment is wrong,

especially the latter statement. This anime is not geared toward fangirls at all, it is written for pretty much every demographics (has a shounenish theme, no explicit adult/mature scene, proper character development, mature atmosphere, etc.). It just so happens that the fujoshi love to interpret this as boy's love.

I usually dislike pathetic characters, but in Mihashi's case, I could really sympathize with him, which is a huge plus because it felt so real. His personality changes with the events around him, it is not just a character archetype. (may be spoilerish) but he is actually aware of his own personality and it affects him too, where as other main characters of the same type doesn't seem to care (feel more like a character archetype than a person's personality, if you know what I mean).

Lmao this is the first time that I saw a really crybaby and loser personality lmao. I'm kind of annoyed but I can't get annoyed to him cause I feel so sorry for him ugh.

Thank God Takaya is there for him!!! Don't know what other's said about it being gay lol, it's normal for friends to say that. Just because you like someone it doesn't mean
you like them "romantically" smh.

Mihashi is a guy who is at least 15 years old, but he cries a lot. Even children don't cry so much as Mihashi.
Mihashi cries from any word and it is very annoying, he behaves worse than a capricious and spoiled princess.
