Pitcher and captain of the Kisaragi Girls High Baseball Team. Inheriting her father's pitching arm, Ryo has an innate pitching ability — at the young age of 14, she has a 95 mph fastball! She is left-handed player just like her father. She originally planned not to go to high school because she wanted to help support her mother at the family's Oden shop, but she is recruited to the Kisaragi Girls' High School to be the foundation of the new baseball team. Before playing for Kisaragi, she often played as relief pitcher for a local sandlot baseball team, the Wildcats.
Blank White Eyes: When she sees Hiroki and Izumi kissing ( Though it was meant as a "good bye" kiss and not so much a "hello I love you" kiss.)
When She Smiles: She hardly smiles in the series (her cocky and mean smiles don't really count), but the time she does a warm smile, is at the end of the series, when she hugs Ryo to cheer her up after losing the semi-final, with the promise of maybe trying to win and go to the Koshien tournament next year.
Hikaru is the energetic first baseman and switch hitter who was a former softball star recruited to the team. She is originally from Osaka (Kansai) region, this explains her accent (at least in the Japanese Version). She was the MVP of Junior High School Softball Competition in Kansai.
Yuki is highly mysterious and quiet, possibly not even of this world. Never without her "alien" companion, Fifi, whom she keeps with her at all times, Yuki is nevertheless is a superb fielder who is always in the right place at the right time. Like Hikaru, she was also MVP of Junior High School Softball Competition in Kansai.
Driven to Suicide: Subverted. Attempted to kill herself after being traumatized by her mean teammates in response of her being an MVP of the Kansai Junior High Softball Competition. She ended up not succeeding in killing herself no matter how hard she tried.
A former school dropout, the red-haired thug had to be tricked by Coach Kido into joining the team. She was a star athlete in track and field, and established records for both the 100 m sprint dash and javelin throw.
Bad Guys Play Pool: Not evil per say, but she was recruited while playing pool; she's naturally the team rebel
Big "NO!": When she finds out after the fact that Coach Kido lured her into a trick into joining the team.
Delinquent: When we first meet her. She had to be lured into a trick (much to her disappointment) into joining the team after Coach Kido saved her from an even worse group of thugs (which included a BIG one).
The only member of the team with actual baseball experience, Koharu played for a boys' team before being found out as a girl. She grew up on the sea as a daughter of a fisherman, and has developed an extremely powerful swing, dubbed the `Wave Motion Swing` from her years of fishing. Her batting is so strong that she occasionally hits out of the park home runs. She is originally from Tosa, a small city on the Shikoku island (which explains her Southern Accent in the English Dubbed Version).
Recruited to fill a hole in the lineup, Yoko has very little athletic ability. Yoko is mostly interested in concentrating on a modeling career, but was looking to use the up-and-coming baseball team as a way to stand out from others. She is originally from Okinawa, the southernmost prefecture in Japan (which explains her tanned skin). She left her hometown, claiming to get rid of dozens of boys who wanted to be her boyfriend, and set her heart to a career in modeling.
Kanako is an excellent baseball player and is the daughter of the school's principal who is against the baseball team in the first half. During this, Kanako has to disguise herself as Tami Konaka (小中 多美 Konaka Tami?), a pseudonym which is an anagram of her name, to be able to play for the team. She has a kind of geeky attitude, and she wants to be a doctor. But she also likes baseball, and wants to play baseball during her high school years. Kanako was also previously a softball star in junior high, and Hikaru recognizes her from their previous encounters in softball games.
Wig, Dress, Accent: Had to disguise herself with a green wig to avoid having her father - the principal who disapproves of the team - find out she's on the roster. Lampshaded when she mentions how odd that all it takes is a wig for a father to not recognize his own daughter.
Hobbies: Reading Comics, baking, growing herbs, flower arrangement, Japanese dance, violin, sewing, ballet, collecting stuffed animals, astrology and laundry
Team manager and part-time cheerleader, Nene is a constant bundle of energy, but knows little of the sport of baseball (learning all she knows from sports manga). A perpetual ditz, Nene is constantly interested in any hobby or ability she can discover. She also sometimes act as a replacement coach, if Coach Kido is absent or late due to hangovers.
