Is it possible we can keep this in /mlb/?This would be my first time watching but I think it would make more sense to keep it there.More people watching and talking about it if it's in one place.
>>122553780it's not /mlb/
>>122553797I guess that's true.
>>122553780No, fuck off newfag. Koshien threads are a tradition

Narutos will take it all
The Handerchief Prince is on the call.

Are they still in pandemic mode seating?
Remind me Summer Koshien is bigger than Spring Koshien?
There's a team from Sapporo called Ohtani Highschool
>>122554117This is there first time right? That's oddly coincidental with Ohtani's breakout year last year.
>>122554108Yea, it has more teams (basically 1 by japanese prefecture) and it is the last tournament of 3rd year studants, after this they retire of high school baseball>>122554043yes and no, unlike last year general public was allowed but number will variate day by day
>>122554108Yes summer is the big boys tournament.
What age range is a Japanese highschool?

>air raid sirenthe chinks are attacking?
>>122554975Ham Fighter fan. Sapporo Dome in Sapporo and other domes.
>>122555022It's a Japanese thing where they use it to signal the start of a ball game
>>122555026actually they're building a new stadium rn
>>122555022thanks for make this a garanteed pin on my koshien bingo anonNo, it is to sign the games are start and finshing, they use it even before the pacific war when radio and TV was non-existaint
>prequel has a better opening theme
>>122555066its amazing how sembatsu maneged to get a bettr theme this year even they use samller artists than Summer lolBut is a fun theme anyways, at least isnt idol for 123193829381293 time
>>122555047I realize that, but for now it’s still the Sapporo Dome. The design for the new stadium is great.

>maneges to print entire yahoo ranking at once>Error: Image resolution is too large.>mfw
>tfw you forgot Koshien was starting and booted up spee after work
>>122555166Just go to mspaint and edit the size until its below 4mb.Or just use snipping tool on the image and it will save it at a much smaller size.
>>122555180its the fact that ranking is too damn longi had to print on my phone since it was app only
Where is the diversity in this league? Shame I'm not seeing any BIPOC faces...
>>122555213sorry to say that, but take politic stuff to >>/pol/ pleaseThe shitposting around Kyoto School is enough politics for this sport for me
>>122555213I still can't believe that is even a thing. But whatever let's just watch baseball and have fun.
>>122555213actually there is an entire team of koreansnippon bros.... we fucking lost
>>122555213BIPOC? Boston Irish People Of Colour?
This MC has a pretty sexy voice but I still prefer the previous one
I love how asahi just said "fuck it lets throw a ball out of a helicopter to show the star of tournament"
>MishimaI hope it doesn't end for these boys like that guy
what if i want them both to win
>3 flyouts in the top>3 groundouts in the bottomfuck yeah baseball
I like that Asahi is stepping up on production, more cameras than last few yearsif only they updated the graphics they use since 2010....
>>122555226Wgat does Kyoto School have to do with baseball? That’s new to me.
>>122555555I think Otani HS will win the whole thing now
>>122555559Kyoto is half korean and uses Korean theme songTo add salt to wound, some people say the theme song of school has "Far east Sea" instead of "Sea of Japan" , stupid issue that was resolved internationally 100 years ago but some Japanese think Koreans still care about it some way
>>122555629Thank you, ABG. I thought it was referring to this Kyoto School: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kyoto_SchoolNow I’m embarrassed.
>Cinderella Nine AD on YahooBasedBoth Live Action series and anime based on this game are good content
>>122555695its ok anon, it happens lol
That was starting to look rough, good they stopped the bleeding.
That was Nagano with the near-dinger for Mishima just there.
WOOOOO KOSHIEN>>122553780/mlb/ is gay as fuck
>>122556136I wonder how they will turn this back, Ni-Dai is getting control of the game
>>Mishima lost to Konkou in the first round of Senbatsu this past March.
>this chokingoh yes, koshien is back
mishima in flames
Ogaki did his brothers in Mishima a favor and flew out.
LOL over charged it
This game starting to pop off
Sad letter timeI prefer the interviews they do but some give me feels
Second one is from Coach of the team
Turning into a rout
>>122557139game went from 0 to 100 now to 100 again lol
>>122554697 these guys look impressed at Kogagakuin lel.
>>122557317What you mean?
Next game明豊(大分)- 樹徳(群馬)Meihō (Ōita) - Itsuki Toku (Gunma)
Brazil how long do you think these days last? As in how many hours from start to finish in one day of games?I'm trying to schedule around these.
>>122558142roughly 7ish hours
>>122558142depend of various factorsbut generally is around 8-10 hours
who are the good guys this year?
>>122558524anyone but toin again lol
that slider was never over the plate, lol
who's this carnivorous little bamboo sprout pitching up a storm
would be a pretty big upset if meihō lose
>>122558791its 3-4 so far, tight gamewouldnt be suprised if we go extras
>>122557493They play them next round.
>>122558791Jutoku beat two of Gunma's powerhouses in the prefecturals so it won't be as surprising as we all think.
Guess we better get the karaoke machines ready...
Next Game明豊(大分)- 樹徳(群馬)Kyōto Kokusai/International aka Korean bois (Kyōto) - Ichinoseki Gakuin (Iwate)
Based, dirt collecting traditon is back
>>122559342You accidently copied the kanji for this now completed game lel.
What game are we watching?
Hello, which pitcher made a promise with their childhood friend that they would get married if he won the Koshien for her when she had to move abroad due to her fathers work? I’ll root for that team.
>>122559587I watched an anime with a similar pretense. It was good.
Give me a rundown on the two teams playing. Or just the grey uniform team. Thats the one I like between the two.
Bump... Looks like Kokusai is becoming Jjangjangmeon by Ichinoseki's submarine pitcher. Good game by him and Gakuin thus far.
uh oh, meltdown in the 9th
not like this..
let's goooooo ichinoseki
That was a good one.
WOW! What a good game. Our first upset this year.That was their pitcher that delivered the walk-off hit. The Korean Boys' pitcher was the one who grounded into that inning-ending double-play in the 10th.
