I just wish they realized most people are using widescreen these days.

In any case, the new episode should give us some discussion for days to come. I'm looking forward to it.

Must you really? All this teasing for the next episode just makes me more anxious. I can't wait to see this episode, I'm making some time tomorrow to watch this after work.

Spoiler for Cross Game Episode 35:


Great episode, even better than I expected. Some very powerful scenes between all the potential pairings in a single episode, which is quite a feat. All the additions to the manga such as new scenes and extra dialogue lines were fantastic and I think the women selection subplot is quite efficient. I am honestly starting to wonder whether the anime is better than the manga, story-wise. The manga's advantage is that Adachi's drawing style conveys emotions and ambiguity incredibly well. However, the anime staff is trying hard as hell to provide similar emotions (ex. Ichiyo's smile in the kitchen and the spoiler-tagged bit above).

Cross Game 36 will be another anime-original episode.

Remember that until the sub comes out its common courtesy to speak about the RAW in spoiler tags.

I'm about to rage It seems like there is plenty of content to be discussed in this episode alone, just as Proto suggested earlier. *sigh* Such is the struggles of the language barrier.

One of the best episodes of Cross Game yet. Perfect.

EXCEPT for one thing. The mountain climbing cousin seriously adds nothing to my enjoyment of the show.

But otherwise, good stuff. The chocolate was definitely meant for Kou. I really liked the scene with the pitcher pose at the beginning.

pretty decent episode (35). It looks like the contest was a poster competition that Akane enter and she won. I knew that it had something to do with a pitcher. The pitcher was Aoba, maybe this was the prediction of Aoba at kosien, but wasn't Aoab in center field in Waka's dream not the mount. Another thing was like I mentioned in last episode that Azuma actually did confess that the only person he would go out with is Aoba, even though people said I was wrong. Looks like Akane saw how Wakaba looks like and through the pictures that Waka would never get tired of Kou. I have a feeling Akane x Kou is going to happen, as she asked Akashi about Waka and Kou's relation. Even told Akashi looked like her late grandpa... haha.

Preview: The Girl's baseball
Looks like Aoba will be trying out for national team.

As others have said already, this was certainly an excellent episode of Cross Game. I particularly loved the scene with the back-and-forth insults between Aoba and Kou in the Tsukishima kitchen. It really made me smile.

Also good to know they didn't troll us in the preview last week and that Azuma was really talking to Aoba. He's so casual about everything. Telling Aoba, and especially in the locker room. I told you guys, I'd only consider going out with Aoba. Huh? I didn't tell you already?

After seeing a few signatures on this forum featuring this anime I decided to check it out last weekend and ended up marathoning all 34 episodes. Episode 1 was so well done that I was completely hooked and I've enjoyed every single episode so far except for episode 18. Having to wait for episode 35 was agonizing after getting used to watching 1 episode after another and it's going to be another long week waiting for 36.

Spoiler for ep. 35:

Azuma's confession is sort of weird. It's almost like if he were "forced" to go out he would pick Aoba, but not that he truly wants to go out with Aoba?

Anyhow, that chocolate was definitely for Kou. Akane x Kou is just a red herring in this story. That won't happen. It would be too weird.

Once again Azuma has the best line of the episode.

Personally I think that originally Aoba intended the chocolate to be to Kou from Wakaba.

That would be so Aoba. (Makes a nice plausible excuse).

But not when Akane shows up. If Aoba had decided to openly give Kou chocolates I don't think Akane's presence would have stopped her- but if Wakaba is involved...

One of the things I am liking is the way everybody around Aoba and Kou are suddenly taking a step back to reconsider the Aoba x Kou pairing, and consider an alternative like Aoba x Azuma and Kou x Akane.

I was surprised at Ichiyo's nonchalance though. I actually felt a little betrayed... at least we can still count on Momiji to support an Aoba x Kou ending.
