About Taisho Baseball Girls Blu-ray

Taisho Baseball Girls complete collection contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Takashi Ikehata.

1925. Six years since the end of the Great War, four years since women were allowed to join political associations, and one year since Emperor Hirohito assumed the throne. Japan is a nation re-inventing itself, swept by wave after wave of wars, disasters and political unrest. War looms in China, males over the age of 24 are about to receive the right to vote, and a strange new type of school uniform called the "sailor suit" is being introduced. But at least the national pastime, baseball, remains bound by tradition, the exclusive realm of men and boys - until now.

When a local player arrogantly states that girls should become housewives instead of going to school, teenage firebrands Koume and Akiko respond by forming their own baseball team. It's shocking. It's scandalous. And yet, in a nation in which almost anything seems suddenly possible, it may just be the start of something greater than any nine girls can imagine.

Special Features: Clean Opening Animation, Clean Closing Animation.

Spoken Languages: Japanese, English subtitles.

More than Moe

by

This is the best show you'll ever see about a group of schoolgirls forming a baseball team in 1920s Japan. Fans of "cute girls doing unusual things" series like Girls und Panzer will find a lot to like here. But while Taisho Baseball Girls is often silly, it also has a serious side. The show features a realistic depiction of feminism in a society where the socially progressive view is to wait until your daughter is the ripe old age of 14 before arranging her marriage to an adult man. Technically, the show is nothing special - it looks and sounds pretty average, and the bare-bones Blu-ray release doesn't add much to the experience that you won't get with DVD or streaming. But overall it's a fun series with a lot of heart. If you want something that's more than moe, consider Taisho Baseball Girls.
