Taishou Yakyuu Musume / Baseball Babes / 2009 Summer Anime Preview

Taishou Yakyuu Musume - After being told by a baseball player that women's place is in the household and academic records mean nothing to women, Akiko decided to form a baseball team and got her friend Koume to join. Its the year 1925 (year 14 of the Taishou period) and the girls don't know anything about the sport! The obstacles seem insurmountable for even trivial things like running is considered unlady-like and is discouraged. The girls struggle against stereotypes, forming a team and learning the sport. This is the story of Taishou Yakyuu Musume.

Women won the right to vote in this country only in the 1930s just to put things in perspective...this is an anime remake of Atsushi Kagurazaka's novel of the same name.

Taishou Yakyuu Musume (Taishou Era Baseball Girls) is now airing in Japan
