That combo taking on a baseball manga is pretty much a dream scenario.

Tomomi Mochizuki. Haven't seen anything he's made in a long time. Last one was... Twin Spica I think? I was too young to really remember Kimagure Orange Road.

Baseball anime, huh? I'm currently watching Touch and I welcome anything that could be remotely like it.

Seems more like "coming of age drama, with characters who just happen to play baseball". I can dig that.

I like both "coming of age drama, with characters who just happen to play baseball" manga like Adachi's stuff and straight up baseball manga, so this is a sure watch for me. I hope they don't make it too emotional and that they manage to wrap everything up in one or two seasons.

A teaser translation for the light novel was started -- there's a Baka-Tsuki page (https://www.baka-tsuki.org/project/i...?title=Battery).

It's character-driven baseball, the art style is old school and beautiful, source material are novels, and it's Mochizuki. Hype.

Hype here too. I'm even hyped for the inevitable match where they lose and melt into a flood of tears and have to comfort each other. *snf* Be strong, XYZ-kun *snf* We can overcome anything as long as we believe in each other *snf*

This being a Noitamina series mean that it's probably already licensed by Amazon Prime.
