I’ve never really heard of this anime before not until I wandered to Adachi universe. I’ve watched 2 classic anime so far before I watched this so I just don’t know any other good classic anime(s) other than the two(namely Maison and Kimagure).

Spoiler Alert!

Okay, let’s proceed now to my Adachi fandom these days.

Spoiler Alert!
One reason I chose this over Touch would be because it is more recent and almost all Adachi fans regard it as his best work so far. And yes, I can clearly see the parallelism Adachi Mitsuru has applied on both Cross Game and H2. Cross Game and H2 both have the stout catchers and stupid comic relief characters. Luckily, Punch is not that annoying in H2 in comparison to Touch where I want to smack him to the ground.

First flaw, well not really flaw but weakness, I noticed in the manga would be the imbalance between Haruka and Hikari. What about this? Hikari is clearly a major character in the story since she is the love interest of the two male protagonist. Due to this, Haruka was reduced as just a baseball team manager. Even though you can say that Haruka is the reason why the Senkawa’s baseball club became the Senkawa baseball team, I quite don’t disagree that she weighs the same as what Hikari played in the story. Haruka also didn’t have that many romance scenes with Hiro even though they are the supposed couple. Instead, Hikari had so many romantic and together scenes with Hiro. During these times, Haruka simply did watch and accepted the fact that Hiro still likes Hikari. Haruka also often go unnoticed every time she tries to do thing for Hiro because Hikari is always around; therefore, Haruka’s character in the manga is over shadowed by Hikari’s too much presence.

First of all, I have a bad habit and that would be reading the manga of an anime still being aired once I find it good. In this case, it’s Cross Game of Mitsuru Adachi.

Okay, now now, I think my perspective towards baseball animes have changed a lot when I started reading Cross Game. For a certain, I’m looking for the drama and romance in this anime but what comes a long with that is my unexpected inclination towards the sport itself the anime is all about.

Now who’s going to tell me that baseball anime is NOT an overrated genre? There is the spontaneous Major, a gambling and strategical approach from One Outs and the typical highschool Ookiku Furikabutte. Baseball is always around the corner whenever we talk about school sport clubs in anime.

Isn’t it annoying to just keep on watching the endless invincibility of the famous ace pitcher of the team? Well, often as we know, it’s the usual scene. A heavy air surrounds the baseball field whether it is the Koshien, ordinary or even international. The next scene would be the deciding moment whether the pitch gets hit or not. The ball curves to the right or left, whatever many possibilities…

What caught my attention from Cross Game would be the drama of course. Cross Game has a tear jerking story right at its first volume, Seasons of Wakaba. I’m also touched when Koh didn’t knew at first what he must do right after that certain event. I think the author was very successful in conveying that thought of innocence among children during tender age whenever somebody dies.

Well then, let us start tackling about the series. I didn’t finished Munto so I’m kind of hoping that this one is better in all aspects. I hope you guys have already researched at least about the show since I don’t want to do any synopsis review. Also, don’t worry, this is not like a second Detroit Metal City since K-on! deals with light music. Supposedly yes.

Are you guys blind? That deformed railing is obviously where Taiga fell!

I think this episode is similar to the episode where Taiga almost drowned but Ryuuji saved her. Although this time, it is the opposite since Ryuuji was the very first one to notice that Taiga has disappeared.
