Princess Nine episodes 14-18 review
Perhaps the best sports anime ever? That’s the question I have about Princess Nine. Because it’s flying up my all-time rankings. That was not at all what I expected when I bought this DVD.
I bought it on a total whim. I just knew it was girls playing baseball, that’s it. I then left it alone for a whole year without watching it. I expected it would be another waste, like my Lucky Star purchase way back in 2010 (!). Thankfully, I started forcing myself to watch anime.
So now Princess Nine may get a score on My Anime List equal to four Toonami shows combined in my scores. It’s far exceeded my wildest expectations, and every time I think it’s going to drop off, it instead stays strong. Since I don’t really get into plot descriptions here on the shows I’m watching myself (simply because it would be too confusing to the average reader), I won’t talk much about what happened in the particular episodes, but let’s just say that I was riveted by the ever-changing storyline, which just keeps getting better and better.
Only 8 episodes to go of Princess Nine, which is the saddest part. But I think I’m definitely going to write a fanfic based on this series. Only my favorite shows get me to go as far as writing a fanfic. Bleach, Haruhi Suzumiya, InuYasha… and now this one.
Episodes 14-18 rating (out of four stars): ****
