Dat fiery passion. I love it.

The episode was okay, the game felt typical though. I kinda like this Mei Narumiya guy. There were some good plays but I was expecting a bit more. That's some intense look on his face at the end there. Whoa.

That forkball at the end there. I thought he threw a splitter. That guy Mei was funny. He was showing off his pitches there.

Alright episode! Not as good as the others. The supporting characters aren't as interesting, I guess.

Mei's cute even if I don't usually like Yuki Kaji characters (other than Yukine)

Seems like today was really just build-up for the coming pitcher battle. A little wind-down after all the Sawamura focus.

The tourney looks to be intense.

Mei is amazing. Similarly, Tamba did very well today.

Mei! He's hilarious and super confident as always. I love how he really wanted to pitch his special pitch, so cute. He was all happy when he was running back and then was frozen due to the coach being super angry XD His serious look is pretty awesome too, especially when Tanba and him had that eye contact in the end of the episode. Challenge! Tanba's cool having his forkball being successful, but I feel like Mei is still the better pitcher when it comes to being diverse. Eijun and Furuya have even more of an incentive to improve after watching Mei, as well as the rest of the Seidou team being fired up.

I like this ep focusing on the others. How miyuki can adjust to each pitcher's play.

Haha, I remember the infamous "cup check." It wasn't quite as pleasant as the gentle rub in this episode though :P

I knew that at least one poster would complain about Kaji Yuki's voice >_>

I was kind of gotten tired of Eijun's constant shouting lately. This episode was rather calm, which is a good thing. Mei is a typical playful character who gets serious when he finds some rivals. I can't wait to see more of Tanba's awesomeness.

Mei is awesome, I like him.

Once again samurai does fuck all, just like how after every game his status within the team rests to what it was before.
The end is nigh

Ooh, a new rival showed up! And he's voiced by Kaji Yuki to boot. Awesome!

it's very difficult to get down the timing of your swing when the pitcher can alternate between very high speed pitches and offspeed pitches, especially when there's a wide gap like that. against Mei batters will have to try to pick apart his straight pitches from the ones that are going to have movement, and now to make it worse his straight pitches won't all be fastballs either.

it's the variety that makes him terrifying, since he can do nearly anything he wants to with his pitches. without knowing what is coming you only have a fraction of a second to identify the type of pitch, the timing, where to swing, and to actually react and swing your bat. the more unpredictable the pitcher, the harder this becomes.

Ballgrabbingly good episode, I think.
I like the new rival pitcher, he has a personality like Eijun.

I wonder if this will be a 2 cour show or a long running one , cause imo if they would end it around 25 episodes it would look rushed.

Mei seems like an interesting character, tbh! Can't wait to know more about him! I like guys who are confident, as long as their actions speak louder than their words and Mei definitely proved that with his pitching! ;D

5/5!
