Battery- The Animation Season 2 Release Date
At the end of the year, season 2 of Battery-The Animation may release. Takumi Harada is only 12 years old and is already highly regarded as a great baseball pitcher. But when his family moves to a remote town in Nitta, Takumi has no choice but to join the immature baseball team at his new school. This development has little impact on young people, as he thinks it would be more interesting if his presence then turned this unnamed club into a great power.
However, due to his overwhelming talent, Takumi needs a catcher who can catch up with the pitch. After meeting Tsuyoshi Nagakura, his worries were soon resolved. His fan and fellow student, Gou, is keen to prove that he is not just a boast, but a player with enough skills to understand the hints of a master. His irreverent personality confronts him with his new teammates, as Takumi struggles to form a “battery” with Go, but he enjoys the true joy of sports under the guidance of his grandfather.

Battery- The Animation Season 2 Story
There was a small subtitle bug on the battery, hopefully, it’s not a sign of a future problem with the Amazon-NoitaminA partnership, delaying the release of the penultimate episode by a few days. The problem was the translation of this series. And that’s pretty disappointing, given how high people’s expectations were for this season.
When it comes to anime, post-mortem analysis is always tricky, as none of us were there when decisions were made, such as at production meetings. The unequal partnership between Tomomi Mochizuki’s minimalist staging style and Atsuko Asano’s more historic writing may have been destined to cause problems. Perhaps the novel was too long to fit into the 11-episode series. What Mochizuki was not filled in may be missing in the original material itself. But for whatever reason, the battery wasn’t everything in the end — and it seemed like it was going to be half the point.
