Man I have seen same hazing in my day but lashes with a belt until you draw blood is pretty harsh. I could see it coming from miles away young brash freshman coming smart tongue and talking back. What sucks is the school blames the baseball team to me that's weak maybe re-evaluate the coach for being ignorant and not knowing his players on a more personal level. We are 5 episodes in and no game but to me doesn't matter this is a drama about friendship and growing up really nice writing

Battery EP 5 /

First I am writing this after my first thoughts. Really keeping in the news tone about hazing / assault that happens in school sports . I applaud the author / PROD staffe for potraying this!

Vice CAPT is still creepy Takuma / Go ordered to put everything away but he is asaulted! Thery should be expelled from school those creeps Go takes him to his house! The truth comes out about what happened and the team is suspended but Takumi / Go Even the Capt try to practice

That was brutal



The whole team gets suspended ( right out of sports news )

Oh dont forget hazing is under a watchful eye nowadays I live in NJ and Sayreville were State Champs or contenders in theiir Stae Group Championships

Nice episode. Its star freshman pitcher against ace slugger of rival school and pitcher gives up a homerun. At the end of episode Go is running out to pitcher and I am guessing he is going to say you were holding back on that pitch and be pissed off I can almost foresee it happening. The edge/confidence at the junior high school level is a fine line. My guess is he gets 2 more pitches to strike out the slugger. I am glad the Captain quit the team he was a duche bag

Interesting this episode this week...

Honestly, I'm not surprised that Nobunishi quit but I wonder if the show has plans for him in the future. Takumi should really try improve the relationship he has with his mother though.

After all the drama I liked the good hitter (Yokote captain, Kadowaki Shuugo ) vs Takumi He did get a HR but that was a straight fastball w/o Go's input !

Other notes why is Nobunishi stiil at that school? I hope he is gone for good safter resigning but you know anime!

Coach wants to play Yokote ( Dist Champs ) but the principal still says no! But coach has other plans!

Coach trys catching Takumi and is impressed . Both say each other will other will carry them to the nationals



Kainoji knows Shuugo and sets up a meet with Takumi as the bait being a good pitcher! Takumi throws strikes but throws a fastball and he hits for an HR

I hope you guys know that he let the guy get a HR cause he didn't throw fast on purpose which let the batter have better timing. I assume it's cause Go couldn't catch his new and improved fastball that's much faster than usual. Knowing that, Harada believes Go can't catch his pitches anymore and his pride made him give up.

Damn, Gou kind of lost it this episode..really wish he didn't use his fist to do the talking at times especially when it comes to Takumi.

Takumi and Gou still has quite a bit of drama around each other even though the show has reached the half way point now. I expect an actual game eventually rather than exhibition match....eventually.

I am liking Go more and more he should be pissed Takumi needs to trust someone in his life throw the ball as hard as you can fuck it. I can see what Gramps is talking about the boys need to have fun and not just about winning. I can see the rival school hitter has that special gift of getting excited and having fun its about competing and the challenge at the same time.

Seiha is sooo adorable! The way he acts towards Gou just melts my heart. Such a precious little angel though.

Battery EP 7 /

Shuggo only got A HR last EP because he didnt think GO could catch it. Even Shuggo could sense that! Then even after Kainoji asked fot a game iy would not be approved by either school so the thought was do it by themselves ! This after Takumi says nobody will get a hit! He gets yelled at by Makoto but later Kainoji calls to say the match might be on and dont worry about it.

I did no think much when Takumi went to see GO who roughed him up for embarrassing him. But it was brief because it got reall good after that!



I am not sure what Shun is on the Yokote but Shuugo had to really posh him to get the game with Nitta but he sensed awe / fear in Shuugo about Takumi even calling Takumi his GF . Shun/ Takumi are somewhat alike in their attitudes.

Any way after a full inning Shun comes up against Go who gets mocked by Shun saying he cant catch Takumi which he has a hard time because Takumi is throwing the reak deal. He gets him out on a pop-up! Kinda sad it a cliffhangar!

The Ride back with Makoto chewing out Takumi



Takumi / Shuggo VA's were in ACE OF DIAMONDS ( interesting)

Shun ( Shunji ) VA Ryohei KIMURA was in AOD and Big Windup Shintarou

The battery is breaking down not sure why Go doesn't have more confidence kinda doesn't make sense except they are both freshmen. Hard to listen to smart ass trash talk from other team really gets on my nerves

So it looks like Go's doubts continuously to grow in this series in particular about being the catcher for Takumi.

I don't like Shun much, he's the type of guy that seems to stir up trouble for the hell of it. The game itself was even interrupted so..maybe a rematch some other time? He really has that nickname directed at Takumi huh? "Princess".

Battery EP 8

From experience Playing rivals off season is nothing new ! We used to play a couple of our rivals all the time and was even more fun mixing the teans up. That being said sometimes you click and sometimes not! But for the most part we all got along pretty good .

Now baseball is not all action every second as Pitcher / Catcher / Hitter is the main focus with a good runner mixing things up !

So now to the EP I did like the non-sanction game , IDK what happened between Takumi / GO that should have been noticed that was incomplete as they looked so far apart. Now Mizugaki taunted GO saying he couldnt catch him. And it did fall apart just as the Yotoke showed up and cancelled the scrimmage but both teams want to play again.

Now after Takumi / Go got bemched Takumi was let's say shocked or disintersed . Even Shugo ?? Takumi after showing so much promise.

It was Coach Makoto who pitched to GO and asked if it was hard as Takumi and GO says more like an outfielder . So coach says Talumi has to pitch at 70% most of the time and then asks GO if he wants to quit. ( That is the missing link what is GO's minsdet? )

Takumi needs to get out of his shell or whatever his problem is!

Some of Takumi's teamates come over and ask if Yoshisada can caych and GO calls up and says the same thing!

Meanwhile Kaionji / Mizugaki are setting the RE-Match as lomg as Takumi plays

Then Shugo is watching Mizugaki seetiing this up and ?? him But Mizugaki saus that it may be the end of thhose two playing together !

Then both factions meet up and Mizugaki gets a rival in Yoshisada for talking !

The omissions kinda weighed in on this EP which was stiil good IMO becuase I get what's going on!

GO / Takumi are on diifferent planets despite standing next to each other!



Coach pulled no punches about GO's situation



Mizugaki / Yoshisada jawing

Was it missing yesterday? Episode 10 is up now on Amazon, but (at least on Roku) it's missing subtitles. I've contacted Amazon support about it. Hope they fix it soon.
