The anime airs today. I've read a bunch of the various manga and spinoffs, as well as played a bit of the visual novel, so I'm greatly looking forward to it. Plus, it's a Key work (same writer of Clannad, Angel Beats!, Kanon, Air).

Woah, was not expecting a Baseball anime at all.
Nice change of pace from the current season's majority of magical powers.
Will be watching. :D

Good thing I read this. Just saved me from watching a sports anime.

Episode 1:

I'm not really sure what to make of this one yet. It's obviously not a baseball anime though. They might be trying to make a team but that's just a framing device to keep these characters together as they are about to go their own separate ways in life.

As for the episode itself. I don't think the anime has much of a budget with lots of still shots and the fact that they didn't even try to animate the cat fight at the end. The episode did an okay job of introducing the group of friends. You get a sense of their personality, but with a group this large you only get just enough to form a very basic impression. The comedy was also okay if a bit inconsistent. Some of the jokes made me smile a bit even if I didn't laugh, but then I thought the gag with the greeting drug on for too long and wasn't really amusing.

Overall, I'll be watching more as this episode didn't really move me one way or the other. It was just an okay first episode.

episode 1.... not sure what to make of this yet. i was not drawn in from the get go like i was with Clannad, Kanon and Angel Beats, but maybe i have too high of expectations.

the comedy was mostly flat except for the pitcher being assigned her title (literally LOL'ed) and i felt no attachment to any of the characters.

we'll see what three episodes bring me.
