About Taisho Baseball Girls DVD

This Taisho Baseball Girls complete collection contains episodes 1-12.

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.

Charming Period Piece

by -

Taisho Baseball Girls is a charming coming of age drama set in a historical period of 1920s Japan. With a rich color cast of characters forming a baseball team you'll have plenty of fun watching and rooting for. Pretty looking visuals but lacking a dub but you'll be sucked in.

I ordered this on a whim, never seen it before. But I'd read that it was good and caught it on sale, so I took a chance. I'm glad I did! I quite like this anime. I like historic settings and there are some nice editor's notes within the subtitles, commenting on various historic elements most non-Japanese watchers probably aren't familiar with. There's also a nice variety of personalities within the main cast, which makes for fun dialog and character development. There's not much by way of special features and it's sub-only, but frankly I think the scenes where the students have English class would just be weird in an English dub. If you like sports anime and slice-of-life schoolgirl shenanigans, give this a shot!
