Internal Dialogue a plenty
After watching Haikyuu, I pretty much knew what to expect out of a sports anime. Each play gets 2 minutes of internal dialogue. In Haikyuu they skip a bit, but Big Windup is literally an entire season of shows for a single game.

On the plus side, again, like Haikyuu, you really get a detailed analysis of the sport. It truly is like a teaching tool for baseball. That is, to me, very entertaining. Now, the super neurotic pitcher can get unnerving at times, and why they made the coach a gigantic breasted Wonder Woman is a mystery, but it all works.

Sports anime lovers will enjoy.
