Taishō Yakyū Musume Baseball Anime Confirmed

posted on by Egan Loo
Based on novels about 2 girls who start a baseball team in 1925 Japan

The Japanese publisher Tokuma Shoten has confirmed on its website and in the October issue of Monthly Comic Ryū magazine on Tuesday that an anime adaptation of Atsushi Kagurazaka's Taishō Yakyū Musume. (Taishō-Era Baseball Girls.) novels have been officially green-lit. The two novels are set in 1925 when two 14-year-old Japanese high school girls named Koume and Shōko decide to start a baseball team in Japan where few baseball teams — male or female — exist at the time. First though, the two girls have no clue where to find nine players, how to use the equipment, and what even the rules are.

Sadaji Koike drew the original illustrations in the novels. Comic Ryū already launched the manga version by Shinpei Ito (Hyper Dolls, Moldiver, Cutie Honey aGoGo!) in its September issue, which was released on July 19. Studio Ironcat had licensed the Hyper Dolls manga in North America.
