It sure does suck that this show isn't longer. Wouldve have been a lot better. More time for development and more time for my Hikari x Hiro relationship to grow : / If only this show was as long as Touch than this anime would surely be part of the great list of Top Anime

I agree totally. IMO it would have been better than both Touch and Cross Game if it was as long as Touch. To me the story was definitely the most appealing to me out of the three.

I didn't read/watch it yet, but I was suprised that they crammed 338 chapters into 41 episodes.

In comparison:
Cross Game 160 chapters > 50 episodes
Touch 257 chapters > 101 episodes

So it has more chapters than Touch, but even less episodes than Cross Game.

Either the manga is full of fillers / the baseball games get dragged out for several chapters, or they cut out a lot of stuff for the anime.



Edit:
I just read on Baka Updates that the anime only covers 78 chapters of the manga?

"Anime Start/End Chapter
Starts at Vol.1,Ch.1
Ends at Vol. 8, Ch78"
