Moshidora 6 – not the maximum, but the optimum
May 3, 2011
Episode 6 of Moshidora (What if a female manager of a high school baseball team read Drucker’s Management?) starts the final half of the series, and we see the team making what appear to be final preparations for the coming run at the national championship.
One great moment this week was when the team was surprised by the sound of a brass band playing the series OP. The OP is a decent song, so it was quite noticeable, and it was interesting to hear it re-arranged for a brass band. It supposedly gave the team enthusiasm, and I could see why. It surely will add to the intensity of the coming games.
The emotional peak of the episode, though was when they
told Nikai he had to change his shirt announced the new starting lineup. It was nicely done, in that it tied together elements going all the way back to episodes one and two. I new Minami’s “market research” was going to be put to more serious use than to show off her crappy cooking skills!
Let the games begin!
