5.0 out of 5 stars Get over the title: Princess Nine is a truly great show. 3 April 2014
By Scott Barolo - Published on Amazon.com
Give Princess Nine a chance--after four episodes you and your whole family will be hooked. The basic plot is that the principal of a girls' high school wants (for mysterious reasons of her own) to put together a girls' baseball team to compete in the boys' championship tournament.

You do not need to be into sports drama or girls' shows to love this series. You just have to love great characters and great storytelling. The characters are the real strength of the show: for example, the 'antagonist' Izumi is one of the most compelling and complex characters I have ever seen on television, animated or not. I could understand each character's motivations and fully understand (but not predict) their behavior. Some of the minor characters are a bit one-dimensional, but they all get at least one great moment in the sun. P9 may have the best original score of any anime I've seen, except maybe Cowboy Bebop. The animation is not of the highest quality, although the character designs are good and they put in extra effort for the important scenes and Ryo's crazy pitches.

P9 has all the sports drama you could want, including different strategies for each game; a drunken lazy but brilliant coach; a love triangle that is actually interesting; and a great "putting-the-team-together" sequence. It's inspiring and positive, but never preachy, and it's not afraid to get into some interestingly dark emotional territory. The ending is absolutely perfect, which I have never seen in anime.

Again, this show is NOT just for sports fans, or for fans of girly anime: it's for anyone who likes a great story and amazing characters. There's very little that could be called "fan service," especially considering the opportunities provided by the setting. Adults and kids of both sexes will enjoy it--my son (13), daughter (10), and wife all loved it--but ideally the kids should be old enough to read the subtitles (if they don't speak Japanese), because the English dub is **far** inferior in quality to the original Japanese voice acting. Sorry to be a subtitle snob, but without the subtleties of the original voice acting it's just not the same show.

If you love great TV you cannot go wrong with Princess Nine. Get over the title and check it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Rightstuf / Lucky Penny 6 April 2014
By B. Sounthonevichith - Published on Amazon.com
I'm so glad Lucky Penny is re-releasing this gem of a series and keeping it at 6 discs instead of putting it on 4. I'm not going to get too much into the story but if you've ever watched sports animes, it's got the same principles. The build the team, camaraderie, hardships are all in this series. This is one of my favorite series and I'm glad I'm able to pick it back up. I'm also glad Lucky Penny kept the ADV dub as I actually enjoy watching this series in English. Hopefully with this series no longer being oop, fans who have never seen the original can pick this up and enjoy it. Top 5 sports title, my opinion, along with Slam Dunk, Cross Game, H2 and Wild Striker in no particular order. If you've never seen this series, do yourself a favor and buy it. You won't regret it.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good series not great.. 30 July 2014
By book lover - Published on Amazon.com

This series is pretty good it's very dramatic though. it gets annoying that some of the girls team players almost lose games because of feelings for boys and stuff get in the way of their game play.
The product is a regular dvd case with six discs. I really like how each disc has artwork of a diffrent character on it. My only problem is that the girl on disc four has tan skin but in the anime she has light skin. its not really a big deal but I noticed it right away when I opened the dvd case for the first time
5.0 out of 5 stars Girls and Baseball! 8 July 2014
By Walter D. Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com

This is a terrific story. It has heart, courage, romance, real character development. While it's like a girls against the world anime, it shows how people can overcome things and achieve worthwhile goals. It is heartwarming, too. And it says a lot about how tough and competitive girls/women can be, in spite of the gender differences.
Besides, I really enjoyed watching this!
