I’m Bananaowns and this is the Drop Zone, a series where I take a look at shows that I stopped watching.  It’s time to talk about Battery.


This show had me extremely interested at the start.  I love baseball and I haven’t had a good baseball anime to watch in quite a bit of time.  To my surprise though, this show features one of the most arrogant main characters known to anime.  Takumi is arrogant and nothing about his character is endearing enough to make the audience care about him.  He’s the main freaking character of the show and I wanted to see him fail.

Adding on to this is the plethora of adult characters that manage to be just as awful.  So many adults want the kids to stop playing baseball to the point where I didn’t even make it past the halfway point of the season.  From the second episode, I was already getting annoyed with every adult on this show except for Takumi’s grandpa.  Even the baseball coaches are awful and engage in some conduct that is absolutely deplorable.  Nothing about this show’s plot is great.  Almost every character is frustrating to deal with and that’s why I dropped it.  Thanks for checking this piece out and I’ll be back next week for another review.
