Yo, no new episode this week? What's up?!


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.


Still only Japanese when you look at series menu all episodes say CC under the title except latest episode 10

Episode 10

For an anime about baseball, there sure isn't much baseball. It has been very awkward with the behavior, attitude, and ability of the kids in this show. A lot the mind sets, attitudes, and physicality have seemed more fitting in a high-school setting than a middle school one. Kazuki felt and looked like he was graduating high-school more than he was about to enter it, from a mental stand point as well as a physical one.

This season has had a baseball anime not about baseball, and a soccer anime not about soccer.

Hopefully we don't get a new Initial D next season or it will be a racing show without cars.

Edit: Inb4 Haikyuu isn't about volleyball next season.

So finally the big game but its for fun nothing else. I liked Battery a lot but because it wasn't just about baseball but growing up and friendships, It was hard to like some of the characters but that's like life you don't like every one around you. I think over all it was an anime done differently then other sport genre shows and for that I give it a thumbs up!

Huh, You know I feel that I liked Battery, but at the same time I hated it. I might have to re watch it a year from now to really get my final thoughts on the series.


I will say that I enjoyed the series a lot more once Shunji was introduced.

Battery EP 11

Now that was a fair episode sans a moment or two when it got to the game a lot of strageries were going on.But if that was the end very let down

Both teams for the most part have a lot of respect That showdown but then hanging !Takumi had some heat going

It had potential but just too much drama etc. The big thing was the Takumi / Go it just stayed stuck in a rut.And it semd much fr mddle school.

Late post, almost forgot about this.

Battery...in the end imo was disappointing. Not in the way that it's disappointing because it's bad but I just lost a lot of interest in it mid-season. The character drama was too much and although realism was good, I couldn't really appreciate Takumi at all in the end. The finale felt underwhelming with the game as well.

I think Battery is probably aimed at specific audience (not exactly sure which) but likely not for the typical sport fan. There isn't much gameplay as the series was filled with drama....

The ending was also very anti-climatic.
Idk, I had high expectations for the series but those were not met in the end.

Ok so this anime is pretty much Glasslip 2.
This was a complete cluster. This is the perfect example of an anime that has no idea what it wants to do, and ends up with pointless drama to make up the episodes.
The fact that this anime even has the ''sports'' tag in it, is an insult to both Baseball and sports anime in general.
