So many sport animes about baseball... I personally have no interest in the sport itself but I wouldn't be surprised to find myself watching this one too.

Although I am not interested in baseball mangas/animes, but depending on the seiyuu cast, I might watch it..

About damn time!

Some great news to hear, I'm going to watch this for sure.
A good quality manga, so I hope they can keep the level of the anime 'round the same.
