Storyline

Hiromichi Kojima, the star batter of the Lycaons, heads to the southern Japanese island of Okinawa to train and find a new pitcher for the team. There, he meets Toa Tokuchi, a 134-kmph pitcher and the undisputed king of a gambling form of baseball called "One Outs". At Kojima's urging, Tokuchi signs up with the Lycaons under an unusual contract: he gets 5,000,000 yen for every out he pitches, but loses 50,000,000 yen for every point he gives up. A high-level psychological game of baseball, gambling and logic is about to begin.. Written by Anonymous

..and this is how you make baseball interesting..
20 September 2014 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Since this is my first review, I cannot profess to know what I'm talking about, but know that this is my honest opinion about this anime: I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! Sorry for screaming it out to you, but this is how I feel. My dear friend who gave me the instruction to watch this is forever in my debt. For a young woman such as myself, that has no interest in baseball whatsoever, to non-stop watch 25 episodes of One Outs is in itself a statement of how intriguing, fun and clever this work of animation is.

It is not a simple work of entertainment, it is an entertaining anime that commands you to think. Each and every character has their own unique personality, with of course Tokuchi being the smartest man both off and on the baseball field.

In the end, all the elements that compelled me to watch it, the intelligence, the pride, the money, the attitude and the teamwork, all of it made me long for more once I reached the final episode. And yet, I'm perfectly content with how it ended.

So don't hesitate, just watch it and love it!
