In the meantime, are you guys going to reencode the older eps into 16:9?

I guess you're waiting for the karaoke stuff first though...

Even the best hitters have an off game, especially against a pitcher they've never faced before with a pitch that gives them particular trouble.

^his teammates were facing that pitcher for the first time too. They did alright

and it wasn't just the forkball. He couldn't hit fastballs either

if it was my team, I'd make him first base coach and thats it lol

the other team recognized that he was the toughest hitter and focused harder on him, and he did end up with the crucial hit at the end

Anyone else think Kawai was out in episode 22?

Abe didn't block the plate well, but he did just well enough to prevent the slide from getting through. And since he didn't drop the ball (as far as I could tell), that's an out.

I didn't re-watch it or anything, so I could be wrong.

Yep, awaiting the karaoke. Once we have that we'll re-release 1-17 in wide screen.

He didn't put the tag on him before his foot touched the plate is the only explaination. He talks about the throw being just a little too late. And Kawai outweighs him by only 50lbs according to stats, BTW.

Meh every hero needs to get knocked down first so they get their moment of glory to redeem themselves later.

As mentioned above, the team completely changed their strategy when they faced Tajima at the plate, as they didn't want the best batter in the lineup to hurt them.

The old sports adage holds true here, as they forced the other batters to try and beat them, and they showed they were up to the challenge.

This happens to the best players in real baseball all the time, and will often have an 0-3 or 0-4 game, but if given the opportunity they can still deliver the crucial clutch hit when the game's on the line despite not doing well earlier in the game.

Yep. Got the DVD on Tuesday. Nice little side story. Timed 24-25 and I'm currently editing them for checking. Sent 26 to our translator and he'll get to it as soon as he can.

Just watched 21 eps this weekend and loved it! So much more realistic than Princess 9, the only other baseball anime I've seen. I only wish some of the chars looked more distinctive, I get a few mixed up. I hope the coach gets more of a backstory since she's spending all her savings on this team there must be a driving reason.

While I find Mihashi's lack of confidence incredibly annoying at times, I will give full credit to the show for it's thoughtful (and fairly accurate) depiction of baseball and the kids who play it.

Spoiler for Episode 24:

Major, did you perhaps sense a little something more between the reserve catcher and Tajima there at the end?

Not really. I just thought it was mostly done for comedic effect - how he's all awed that Tajima was the clean-up hitter, but Tajima thinks he has weird eyes.

I think it's because he's part-American or something, hahaha.

Spoiler for Kind of long? Will probably post on my blog later...:


Ah, I feel like joining some club...

Wow, no way... The animation in the episodes are just incredible and the soundtrack actually got BETTER!

I will always love Princess Nine as the baseball series for me, but Ookiku is just ridiculous with the whole baseball aspect.

I definitely can't get enough with just these. Hopefully one day there'll be enough manga chapters for there to be another season.

This show definitely joins my personal pantheon of sports anime greats. Easily.

With this, Major and my Mets returning, it's a great time to be a baseball fan.

I've registered on the forums just to express my ridiculous love for Oofuri! Man, I love this series! Thanks again to Central Anime for being so hot diggity fast! They just released the last couple of eps and I've already watched them 4 times in a row...there's something wrong with me...I don't seem to get sick of it...

I've always liked sporty anime, with Slam Dunk and Hajime no Ippo in my top ten anime (of all time, not just sports) and now Oofuri has staked a place in my heart right up there with those two. Does anyone else share this love, enough to put in your top 10?

Ah, but now the anime's ended I'm descending into inevitable sadness. The manga's not much further on and even when there will be enough material I doubt a second anime series would get made. It's not popular enough, right? And it just feels too far in the distance, everyone would've forgotten this first series by then. I mean, they never even animated the rest of Slam Dunk. Glum.

Oh well, will just have to re-watch this series to death. And wait patiently for the manga (though I think the anime was way better)... (And read doujinshi, ahem, of the fujoshi nature...)
