Anime Review: Cross Game

29 May

Summary:

The main character is Kou Kitamura, son of the owner of Kitamura Sports. In the same neighborhood is a batting center run by the Tsukishima family. Due to their proximity and the relationship between their businesses, the Kitamura and Tsukishima familes have been close for many years, with their children going back and forth between the two homes like extended family. Because Kou and Wakaba were the same age and always together, Aoba was jealous of all the time Kou spent with her older sister. Aoba is a natural pitcher with excellent form, and Kou secretly trains to become as good as she was, even while publicly showing little interest in baseball. (Source: MyAnimeList)

Review:

One of the most human anime stories I’ve ever seen. I liked the innocent love, the competition, and the determination. This anime reminded me a lot of “Captain Tsubasa” even though they are completely different. Cross Game just gave me that same feeling I had when I was little watching “Captain Tsubasa”. I also grew fond of baseball after watching this anime. It’s as if this anime gave baseball a deeper meaning! All I can say is this anime is so worth the watch, it will make you cry, it will make you smile, and it will defiantly keep you inspired. Believe in dream! Also, this is one of the few anime that I was satisfied with its ending. I know that not everyone would agree with me on this one but, this kind of story needed such an ending!

Note: It would be nice if it had another season.

Overall Rate: 10/10

Ps: I couldn’t find a trailer so here are some snapshots
