Synopsis:

The year is 1925 and Japan is still a country with socially backwards views, particularly on women's rights. One young girl named Akiko Ogasawara decides to fight for equality in her own way - by forming a girls' baseball team! She soon enlists her good friend Koume Suzukawa, and it's now up to the two of them to put together a team of like-minded and spirited young ladies. Under the able and enthusiastic tutelage of English teacher Miss Garland, the girls will need to bond closely, learn well and practice hard if they are to stand their ground against boys' teams and show a misogynistic society exactly what they're made of... while having some fun in the process.

Otome Youkai Zakuro

Otome Youkai Zakuro

In order to bridge the gap between humans and youkai, The Ministry of Spirit Affairs was formed. Military man Kei Agemaki is assigned to the new unit and seems to be the ideal candidate. He’s charming, polite, and a complete gentleman, but there’s just one problem: he’s absolutely terrified of spirits! When he arrives at the new headquarters, Agemaki is partnered up with a cute, yet brash, youkai named Zakuro. Now the unlikely pair must work together to solve the region’s spirit-related problems to help improve relations between humans and youkai, and maybe help Agemaki overcome his crippling fear while they’re at it.

Recommended if your favorite part of Zakuro or Taisho Yakyuu Musume was the culture clash. Both take place in the early 1900s, when Japan was undergoing rapid Westernization, and the population was mixed on whether to reject or embrace the changes.

Both have a similar color palette (pastels), and light drama.

Princess Nine

Princess Nine

Ryo has always enjoyed baseball, and has an incredibly fast pitch to prove it. She is better than any man she knows, yet has never really put her skills to the test; after all, baseball is a “man’s game”... until now! Keiko Himura, the chairman of Kisuragi High, has a goal: to create a team that proves women can play just as well as men -- if not better -- and she has chosen Ryo to be the new team's captain! With 8 more teammates to find, can the girls lead the team to the ultimate victory, to win at the famous stadium Koshien?

There both tales about girls playing baseball. Both of the heroines are going up against stereotypes and other odds. Taishou Yakyuu Musume is has a more older setting, and Princess Nine is a bit more modern, but if you like one, you would like the other.

Ranma 1/2

Ranma 1/2

Ranma, raised to be a man among men, has a bit of a problem: he is half woman! While training in China he fell into a strange magic spring at Jusenkyo. Now, he is eternally cursed to change into a beautiful woman whenever he is hit by cold water, but that may be the least of his problems; his father has betrothed him to marry! There's never a dull day for Ranma as he attempts to find a cure for his curse, train to become stronger, and grapple with the fact that half of himself may be more feminine than his fiancée!

Both anime show girls who are athletic and independent and the boys who like them! Both have comedy and romance mixed in with action to make an enjoyable anime to watch.

Saki

Saki

Winning a game of Mahjong is hard; getting the same score every time is practically impossible. So imagine the surprise of the school Mahjong club when Saki Miyanaga walks in and does just that. Despite her dislike for the game, her talent is obvious and it's up to the club members - the top-heavy Nodoka, the energetic Yuuki, the cunning Mako and the permanently in control club president Hisa - to persuade her to join the club and help them reach the Nationals. But even then, will their combined skills be enough to overturn some of the toughest high school players the country has to offer?

Quirky and interesting cast? Check. Teams of girls playing competetive games? Check. Gently implied yuri? Check. While Saki and Taishou Yakyuu Musume differ in both their pacing and their approach to competition - Saki being the more dramatic of the two - they also have several elements in common, which makes me think that people fond of one ought to think about trying the other too.

Sora no Manimani

Sora no Manimani

Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

There is no loud and hyperactive girl like the lead from Sora no Manimani in TYM, but both shows are about a group of friends creating a club in school and both have some similar light romances in them.
