Premise

It’s a ‘cute girls play baseball cutely’ show, except it insists on you observing a ditzy catgirl in the hope that you will later buy merchandise of her.

Euri’s verdict: Swing and a miss

There is nothing of substance to enjoy here. Some girls go and play baseball, and at the end of the episode the student council president appears to indicate she’s not okay with that, even though she’ll join them eventually. The rest of the episode is the girls being cute, with a very noticeable focus on the girl wearing a cat hoodie. She doesn’t have anything extra to add to the show, she’s just got a good hoodie and that’ll sell some merchandise a month down the line.

Nominal points for not being skeevy or genuinely offensive, but this show doesn’t achieve anything beyond being incredibly dull.
