Yomi Takeda has just entered into a new school this spring when she is reunited with her childhood best friend, Tamaki Yamazaki.
When they were in middle school, Yomi gave up on baseball because there wasn’t a catcher around who could stop her. Thus, she wasn’t able to keep pitching her ‘makyuu’ pitch, a sharply changing pitch.
However, Tamaki is a member of an incredibly powerful, skilled team. Tamaki is the one person who was able to stop Yomi’s pitch. In order to realize the promise that they made to each other when they were little, the two of them, now reunited, and together with the Kawaguchi sisters, decided to revive the abolished baseball department.
Their goal? Nationals!
The story of the struggles of this reborn baseball team at Shinkoshigaya high school begins now...

Three Episode Impressions
As you can guess, Tamayomi is full of tropes, and to be honest, we were expecting that. Truth be told, being too predictable is not always a bad thing, so you be the judge here, but the animation in these first 3 episodes feels lacking and clumsy, so that's another thing to take into account. For what it's worth, Tamayomi is not the best sports anime ever, but it's certainly not the worst either. Maybe it gets better now we're done with the introductions and we finally have a tournament to look forward to?
