Title: “Romantic Strike” |Artist: Kanae Ito, Mai Nakahara, Kana Ueda and Mamiko Noto |Show: Taisho Baseball Girls

As we move into full summeriness of summer, maybe some of us have seasonal things on our minds. Cookouts, vacations, baseball, etc. Baseball is summery, right? Today’s OP fits the carefree mood that summer (allegedly) has: upbeat, catchy, and optimistic. It’s a very honest advertisement of Taisho Baseball Girls, a hidden gem that sneaked up on me and has become one of my recent favorites. We all like our serious and brooding anime, but if you need a break, it’s pretty hard not to like this show about a group of plucky girls in 1920s Tokyo.
