Moshidora was originally scheduled for March, but was delayed due to extended news coverage of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
It started airing two days ago and will show one episode a day for two weeks, totaling at 10 episodes. A bit on the short side, but at least we get to see new content every day.
This series is about a high school girl who mistakenly buys one of Peter Drucker’s books on management and applies it to the baseball club she’s managing. The main focus of each episode is taking a few lessons from Drucker’s book and using them to improve the team. I find the lessons quite informative and their baseball team serves as a good example. It’s almost as if the entire story is one large case study on how to improve a business.
If you’re looking for excitement and action, you’re not going to find it here. Instead, you can listen to Hikasa Youko do an excellent job voicing Minami as she tackles various issues and learns important life lessons. I feel Moshidora is targeted towards an older audience, which actually feels perfect for me.
