Watch it!! It will change your view on anime.
15 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

First off I haven't done many reviews at all. In fact this review want even be a review when it is all said and done. I am not going to review the fact that this anime has a truly wonderful soul/plot. I am not going to talk about how the characters are all awesome from the main characters to the comic relief characters. I am not going to throw accolades at how incredible the growth of each character is. Not going to tell you about how some the dramatic songs are now ring tones on my phone.

No i am not going to review Cross Games, what I am going to do is offer a testimony. There are very few movies, shows, songs, or any other form of entertainment that impacts me. Of course documentaries on the horror of what humanity can be and of the joys that we capable of, "Girl U for me" by Silk since this was the first song I ever slowed dance to with a love that she will be forever lost to me, Final Fantasy 7 since well it is final fantasy 7... Point is this the list is not abundantly filled with media. And the things that manage to make earn a spot on the list are truly special.

This anime sat on my to watch list for years and when I started to watch it I devoured all 50 episodes in 24 hours. I stopped my life literally. I didn't' want to cook because that was the time i could of been watching episodes. Thank goodness for Papa Johns and Chinese food delivery. I did the pee-pee dance till i reached the obligated have to go third time and proceeded to run to the bathroom then. I took 10 min military style showers as if water was being rationed out. My heart was invested in this. I fought emotions through out this film like a prize fighter. One minute I had my opponent on the ropes ready for that joy, that sense of exuberance of the championship belt to be placed around. Then I would be knocked down to the mat trying to stand before the count of ten and i will tell you I have been TKO to this anime as far as the many emotions that it can touch in you. All the while you are taking the cheap way out by just saying it is some cartoon to yourself in order to prop yourself up more because i promise you it is hard to make it off the mat before the count of Ten. I was saved by the bell many times (pause button).

I want to thank the author Adachi Mitsuru for this wonderful story. I will not ever look at the time spent watching this a waste of my time. I believe, no I know that this show some where in my soul, being, or heart has augmented something and has made me better for watching it. I implore you to watch it and laugh. Watch it and you will be entertained. Watch it and cheer. Watch it and get off the mat. Watch it and change.
