[I'm all | busy]

OK, like, I MIGHT be keeping up with this series. I don't want to commit, because... I'm flaky. I'm not sure if I'm even committed enough to buy a manga, because anime only takes like 24 minutes to watch, but manga is printed in some kind of freaky moon language. (i.e., I read slow ^^;; )

ANYWAY, it's a series about baseball. For those who are not so familiar with the game, the current match in the anime is going about the same pace (maybe a little faster) than an actual baseball game. I used to be nearly obsessed with baseball, probably because there's a ton of stats and you can track like, EVERY D00D by their stats, it's fun!! I gave up baseball when MLB had no world series because everybody was being big whiney babies. 1994, I think.

So, with baseball in our minds, here's my take on the series so far. The art is simplistic, which is OK, makes it easier to draw chibis of it, but you know, I'm spoiled by Konomi's lovely tennis bois. But it's cute, and surprisingly the characters actually look 15! So, I don't think I'll be going "ZOMGSQUEEEWUB!" about any of them, or dying cuz they're so hott, but you know, I might zomgsquee when they MAKE OUT.

Seriously! OK, I'm not at all serious. They're not actually going to make out. But.. they... might?

"What the... WHO is making out?!"
Nobody. Yet!!

It's pr0n!! Pr0n, I tell you!!

In a typical way of me, my favorite character so far is Oda Hiroyuki (I think tha's his name). He's a transfer from Kansai. To the rival school. I'm a sucka for the accent.

See that gargantuan mammary? It belongs to the coach of the main characters' school. How the hell did she run bases with those things!

Hey! This show also has Tennis!! And Ein!! (I believe the dog's actual name is Ai)

It's the Kansai guy again. He's being kinda silly, but kinda serious at the same time. This was sortof a mad awesome scene. It would take too long to explain the whole thing, but it was yey.

Here's how Oda actually looks. It is OK to spoil me by telling me whether or not the Mihoshi 1-nens show up again in the manga! The only other teammates I know the names of are Kanou (he is the only nice one from the previous year) and Hatake, which is half of Hatakeyama, which is Kreva's real name. KTCC 4-EVA.

Oh, yeah. The MAIN main characters. The guy on the left, that's Mihashi. He does that a lot. He's actually really annoying and kindof a moron crybaby. The guy on the right is Abe, he's probably actually the main character, since he gets more screen and voice-over time. But Mihashi is the protagonist.

What?! That's IT??
Yeah, because I'm not sure what I need screencaps of yet.

Here's something cute that they do. Instead of saying every time "Nice pitch!" which would be "naisu picchi!" in Japanese, they abbreviate it to "Nai pi!" It's cute.

So, yeah, it's cute, and I like it, and so I guess as soon as I can see ep 7 I'll like, do a "proper" screencapping ;D
I'm not insanedrop trou!

Dude, Episode two where one of the members go " Crap! I forgot to Masterbate!" and I got sucked in. But I am not liking Saizen approuch to using the subtitle feature on VLC Player. The subtitles and the translators notes are mashing up together.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'm gonna stick with the raws, even though I'll miss out on priceless gags like that one because I don't know the Japanese word for masturbate XD
I tried changing the subtitle font in VLC but it didn't fix the problem. I'll have to depend on my flist for knowing what the funniest gags are that I missed XD

Kansai accent does me too.
I love the bedroom scene: "try sleeping every night with a different boy among you". Oh dear. If they were more blatant they would be making out onscreen. But I guess that's for the later chapters.

The manga is good, it's just it doesn't have furigana -__- Takes ages to read. Also, I am not familiarized at all with baseball, so I get naught of what they are talking about most of the time, must imagine.

Glad you got into Oofuri too :D

Wha... no furigana ----;; I can't do it ;_; That's a big barrier for me...

I'm almost a baseball expert, so if there's something that vexes you (and baseball is very vexing), I might be able to help out ^^
