THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Decent episode. I'm not a big fan of Haruichi Kominato yet but he's got his style of a player. Pretty good player definitely and would make a valuable asset on any team.

Eijun sure improved. The way he slides into that base was epic. Look @ that smile at the end. Hell ya.

Haruichi is a badass! I'm impressed by Eijun's skills too. I'm guess his pitches are hard to get a good hit out of? Kind of like Oofuri Mihashi's weird fastballs that always become flyballs. Next episode preview spoils everything lol. But whatever. Solid episode as usual. Very intense.

YES. We get to see Chris next ep!

Yeeaah go Haruichi! Need more of him. Love how Ryousuke smirks a little in the back.

Poor Furuya, his junior high team couldn't handle his talent and so he's never felt the "team" spirit that he's seeing from Eijun and the other first-years :( But it's okay, because Seidou will be the best place for you! Anyways, love Eijun's determination and guts, always throwing right down the middle. Good thing it worked for the most part until Masuko came up. But of course, Eijun wasn't fazed at all with his best pitch getting hit, instead he's even more excited! That smile :D

Can't wait to see Chris's debut next episode!

I totally agree. I have to rewatch that "sliding" and the "smile" parts several times because it really looks cool.

Love Eijun's positive personality too. And I can't stop laughing when he just blurted out that he did not know that sign. Haha, he is really a funny guy. A lot of interesting characters too. Can't wait for the next episode!

I am absolutely loving this fighting for places within the school itself. Just goes to show how much realistic it is. Take Kuroko no Basuke for example. The are always the 5 or the 6 playing the games with very little competition within the team which I find rather unrealistic (well, KnB is good as it is, I am actually okay with it being unrealistic, because it's fun on its own right).

If they are all gunning for the starting nine, imagine how good the show will be when they all actually go for Koshien against other top schools!

Btw, I thought they are showing Haruno a little too many times every time something happens. I am still hoping that Wakana shows up! (I know it's a sports anime, but cannot help it!)

FUUUUU. Yes. Loving Kominato. Talented + he's so cute!! <33
Not sure about his bro though.

Lovely to see a pitcher who gets even more excited at being utterly defeated. >:D
Although reckless, he definitely has the potential. that sliding could have been really bad for him! But I love that he managed to get the run. The grin at the end made me grin!

Eijun is sure a nice MC. Really promising.

So, next episode training? It was about time, I want to see Eijun throwing better.

Finally he got to pitch! Although kinda disappointed that he got defeated. I guess he will claw his way up in a long way.

Nice to see Eijun's pitching finally. He is a contrasting type of Furuya. Furuya is so perfect he upstages his team members, whereas Eijun is heartening to them. He is an eccentric, yet an estimable eccentric. His carefree laughter reminded me of Fino in Yuusha. Looked like at least Haruichi supported him. He seems likable.

The coach is seemingly ruthless, but he has an eye on the team members. His approach seems drastic, yet effective and inspiring.

Good episode, I'm glad Eijun is finally getting his turn to shine and he's doing well. It was realistic how he didn't breeze through the whole team and there's still room for improvement when he got defeated. That smile at the end was pretty cool and it seems like he's getting promoted to 2nd string after this.

One error, and the coach sends the guy down to second-string? This guy is tough! He looks scary in the preview too.

Great episode. The sports series owned this weekend. Kuroko, Ippo, and Ace of Diamond all had incredible episodes.

Am I the only one who is a bit annoyed with MC?
It is good to have guts but right now he is kinda on a brink of idiocy. What's the point of being gutsy and throwing balls down the middle when all of them get hit?

While it was the only home run so far, doesn't mean there won't be more.

You won't go far by being gutsy and getting all your balls scored.

Well I don't find Eijun annoying, I think he's really funny and I like his gutsy way of doing things, even if it's idiotic. It's quite obvious that he has room for character development, not everyone is perfect at what they do from the beginning. After seeing how Furuya got into the first string with just one pitch, Eijun is going to be trying his best too to show what he can do. Of course that's not the best move because he should be listening to the catcher, but he'll learn.

I think he fits the role of the main character in this sports comedy. I normally don't like the wild protagonists who believe that trying hard will be enough to win, but I'm actually liking Eijun a lot. He makes the show very enjoyable and exciting with his positivity.

Also, yeah. It's his special pitch - the knuckle ball (as Sourire says) which is his best pitch I'm assuming. Notice that his pitches actually were kind of hard to hit for the older kids, but the mustache guy noticed and got it because he's just more experienced.

I'm interested in Haruichi now. I'm liking how he plays so far, him and Eijun would a good team if put together. Eijun is finally moving forward..this is the first MC I've seen in a sports series with a personality like Eijun's. I'm liking it so far, I think it's good to be out of the norm but I hope he doesn't keep this attitude if they lose in real games.

Too bad the first years hadn't played like that from the start! Took Eijun's spirit to get them going. He still isn't that smart but he's got great enthusiasm and confidence and it started to rub off on the rest of them.

Great to see him score that run with his slide and then get a chance to pitch. If he can learn how to play smart instead of just challenging the hitters head to head he could really go somewhere.

He had a good reason to throw down the middle which he will state a bit later (hint hint: it has a lot to do with Miyuki).

I hope the guy with the monstrous pitching opens up and begins to enjoy the game and the team, because ... as of now ... he is the one I don't like. I mean, he is even below the stage of participating in a game and, apparently, there's more to the game than just catch-for-me-bro :(

As for the anime, ... want more!

I'm almost at the point where I am annoyed by him but not really. He's just a little bit too gutsy for my liking. The side characters are awesome though.


Kominato and his blushes, I like.

That exciting episode, mostly the end, the duel between Masuko and Sawamura, the last batter was amazing.

Swamura is the soul of the team, always trying to encourage them all, and that is why it has gained so much hatred by peers.
