we are at episode 6. So far every character is a bully to our main character the coach hates him the school seems like a meat grinder from hell.How am i supposed to enjoy these characters when 90 percent of them have been rude or terrible people so far and all he does is run he has yet to play baseball for this school that recruited him yet fails to use him. Just all around confused i was expecting something along the lines of kurkos basket where there is a good team atmosphere and friendships and great games battles with strong teams etc. Do the side characters become not dicks later is that something i have to wait for

I am not fond of the series either. A real baseball season is shorter than the anime. The only characters I really liked in the anime was the female team managers and the female scout for the school. I did manage to get through the season 1, but tossed in the towel shortly afterwards. I could only put up with the dis-likeable characters so much.

No. I said I didn't like the main characters. They change, but not enough for me to like them. Again the series was too long for my taste. Heck even the MC was extremely boring to me. But your mileage might vary.

It's sort of deconstructing the genre a bit on purpose in that its from the perspective of an elite, wealthy school that is expected to win and can attract talent from all over the Country. Not at all an underdog story of the ace who brings up a team from nothing to fight insurmountable odds, in fact, this is the story of a team who fights against those more cliche'd teams

That being said , they still struggle and have their share of shonen cliche moments. It's just a bit different.

As far as the MC getting bullied though, he himself also fufills the position of the story's underdog so it's natural that he begins on a bit of a low point.

well i just hope the other characters become friendly so far all they do is laugh at him and make rude jokes about him. Other than that i see this anime having great potential considering the two studios making it
