The baseball episode as previewed.
I wrote a long background introduction on Japanese high school baseball, so I’m gonna recycle it here for a really long TL note.
[spoiler]National High School Baseball Championship in Japan, or simply Koushien, is held every spring and summer. Thousands of high school baseball teams throughout Japan compete to become the champions in their own prefectures first (Hokkaido and Tokyo get two seeds), in order to get a spot in the national championship tournament played in the Hanshin Koushien Stadium.
To be able to participate (and win) in Koushien is every boy’s dream, and it is undeniably the most prominent school tournament in Japan given the popularity of baseball, especially since many players graduate and sign with professional teams without playing in college.
The summer tournament is especially competitive (spring tournament is invitational, with highest seeds), and national TV broadcasts for the finals often garner viewership ratings rivaling that of professional baseball playoff broadcasts.[/spoiler]
The title of this episode, That Summer’s Twenty-One Pitches, is a reference to a non-fiction novel Enatsu’s ‘s Twenty-One Pitches. “Natsu” is the kanji for “Summer”.
The novel was about the seventh game in the 1979 Japanese baseball playoffs final’s last game. A legendary match where the relief pitcher Enatsu Yutaka held off the opposing team after allowing a no-outs, bases-loaded situation in 21 pitches at the bottom of the ninth inning.
Well, enough TL notes. Makoto’s and Erio’s team finally play against the hopeless match where they face off a semi-pro pitcher from their school, with the right to host the summer festival at stake. Watch for Maekawa-san’s obligatory cosplay, Ryuushi-san being all moe, and Meme-san’s boobies bouncing.
Enjoy Denpa Girl and Seishun Boy Ep12 NEET Girl and Gardening Boy Ep09.

    Umm… don’t know if this is where to post this but, there seems to be a problem with the xvid for this episode. I tried to watch it earlier, and the sound was all slow. The video looked fine though. I assume this is an error cuz the opening is the same way. Thought I’d better post so this can get fixed. Thanks for the ep.

    Lol@Julio:Go complain at underwater instead. Maybe Daiz will give a crap about your whining…or not.
    Anyway, I concur with someone else, I was so into reading the tl note until all of a sudden the Denpa talk hit me (helps that I liked that show). Well, some lighthearted baseball will help ease away some of the “dark” mood from the last few episodes. And yay, Carnival Phantasm soon huh.

    The preview at the end of this episode had [spoiler]a pill with the initials AF stamped on them,[/spoiler] is this significant? I know LSD and other rave drugs are similar in appearance.

  18. Best game at the arcade has to go to Super StNEET Fighter 5.

  19. Great job as always. Just to make a note. In Japan high school lasts for 3 years. A 2nd year would be grade 11 and junior by my American cousins standards and not a sophomore. (In reference to Nemoto during his school days)
    Keep up the good work.

  21. for some reason I was thinking that the last pitch would be something super dramatic like this:

  22. @reinhart939
    Hmm, I can’t reproduce your problem, the XviD plays fine for me and the sound is the correct speed. Double check your player and stuff.

    So this show is no better than Denpa? ‘Kay, glad I dropped it.

    It’s a drug called Angel Fix or something like that. I think the next arc is also called the Angel Fix arc.
    [spoiler]Also Ayaka jumps from the school roof. Or at least in the novels.[/spoiler]

  25. Need … more … Meo!

  26. @ 21:42 I so glad your store is thriving.
    seems like your QC missed something here 😀 well it’s just a minor thing to change this to “I’m”
    maybe this rare occasion of a post on my end is a good opportunity to thank you guys for all the hard work and the good and fast subbing you guys are doing 😉

  27. hipster on September 4, 2011 at 7:09 pm said:

    I watch this 50% for Ayaka, 40% for nigga chick and 10% for gay pimp manwhore.
    Deal with it, Alicefags.

  28. @hipster

  29. Thanks for the release :), I think whoever QC’d miss something.
    4:39: “This is my greatest mistake of my life.”
    should be “the” instead of the first “my”
