TAISHO BASEBALL GIRLS COMP COLL BD
From Sentai Filmworks! Available for the first time on Blu-Ray!
1925, six years since the end of the Great War, four years since women were allowed to join political associations and one year since Emperor Hirohito assumed the throne, Japan is a nation re-inventing itself in many ways. Though the game of baseball may be new to Japan, relatively speaking, at least it remains the exclusive realm of men and boys. But when a local player arrogantly states that girls should become housewives instead of going to school, female teenage firebrands Koume and Akiko respond by forming their own baseball team. It's shocking. It's scandalous. And yet, in a nation in which almost anything seems suddenly possible, it may just be the start of something greater!
