Okay, now to figure out what a US dollar was worth soon after WWII and calculate it from that... hm, much higher exchange rate than it is today, though, isn't it? What is it today, about 90 to 1?

EDIT: Found a calculator that returns 6 different evaluations on the value of the USD through history... all six of them being wildly different, the lowest saying a dollar in 1949 was worth 9 today, the highest saying 50... XD Let's compromise and approximate that as... 25. So if one 1949 dollar was worth three hundred sixty 1949 yen and 25 modern dollars, that means one 1949 yen is worth about... seven modern yen? o_O
Is this surprising? Devaluation of currency is the main tool to safeguard economies against stagnation and recession. For the negative side you can always watch Zeitgeist

Oh I know that the value of currency is constantly going down, it's just that seven seemed awfully little.

Fantastic seiyuu lines, Mai Nakahara, Eri Kitamura, and Ryou Hirohashi captured my attention early, hope the reset will catch up real soon.

About the show : Absolutely Hillarious.
From Natto,natto, natto to the baseball scene in the ground by the boys (I loled hard when the girls flee in terror )
From squatting to seiza (seriously loled when she kneel, dammit ), then
a ball straight to the face. and anna-sensei's face when the ball crashed, god
The scene in the newspaper club is nothing less funny

Akiko is getting cuter each time she appears, especially when she jumped around ato hitori yo, ato hitori
Still Shizuka sit in the top of my list so far She's that cute.

Akiko is definitely very cute. Haven't really seen a character like her in awhile, I mean one that doesn't annoying you when they get all happy and giddy when they're exited. I like the bouncing up and down with the repeat of number needed. Actually they're all kind of cute. The Tom-boyish Tama-chan is funny.

I was expecting "A League of Their Own" the animation, but I was way off.
Series is definitely cute, and it's hard to say no to an all-girls-school gig. I'll keep an eye on this.

By the way, the blonde teacher is way funnier and more interesting than I thought she'd be. Fun and immature, I loved the scene where she broke the window.

The show hasn't sold me yet, but I will keep coming back just for the Taishō era setting which isn't a popular era in anime.

I just guess it's something about the Taisho era in which western influence is a lot narrower than it is today that makes her antics stand out that much more.

Anyway, I always thought Taisho era is a rather sad time in Japanese history. It was basically before it tried to enslave the rest of Asia and almost seen as a time of innocence before all the sin to come. That's how I keep observing the Japanese idea of that era.

Another cute refreshing episode, maybe until the end that is. Lots of progress but the outcome was rather expected, after all they are knew and those weren't much of pitches. I have a feeling that that was what our hot blond teacher was planning. Next episode is expected as well but can't wait to see it and how things will work out.

What's with the old fashion cars?

Just watched up to Ep 2, and wow the girls in this anime are just too adorable.

Spoiler for Up to Ep 2:

About the currency, i'm pretty sure that from 1970s till today , USD have dropped roughly 6 times in value. So 1925 to now about 50 times is a good approximate (considering Great Depression, WW2 and others)

Agree here. I like how most of the time she looks so serious (and cool i will say), but when in joy became too adorable.....

I actually like Koume too, especially whenever she change into squat (but it's just too big for avatars.....)

I really like this anime - it's my 2nd favorite after Aoi Hana in this season. All girls are so cute in a non-stereotypical way, it's hard to pick the best one (although I guess I like Tamaki and Yuki best so far, and Anna-sensei is wonderfully hilarious).

Tama-chan's easily my favorite...Love how everyone just got hit by Akiko's pitching, but she not only dodges it but rushes out at her.

Interesting to see some male characters showing up now though...Not exactly bad guys per-se just...Products of the era they live in I guess?
