First Impressions: Taishou Yakyuu Musume

taishou_yakyuu_musumeTaishou Yakyuu Musume was perhaps the show that I had the most uncertainty and doubts about when I added it to my watch this for this season, but so far it seems to be holding up pretty good.  After the first two episodes, it seems to be pretty much the type of show I was hoping it would be: a slice of life comedy which uses baseball to drive the story.

The fact that it’s set in 1920s Japan adds an extra layer to this show, since baseball was both first starting, and girls were still expected to be “proper” and not engage in such things at the time, so the girls organizing the team still have to do so semi-secretly.  This show has definitely been good enough for me to continue watching it with optimism.
