Tropes shared by the team in general

Ryo Hayakawa

Voiced by: Miki Nagasawa (JP), Hilary Haag (EN)

  • Batting Order: 9th Batter
  • Defense Position: Pitcher
  • Throws: left-handed
  • Bats: left-handed
  • Height: 5'3.5 inches / 161.5 cm
  • Weight: 100 pounds / 45.5 kg
  • Date of Birth: April 2nd (Aries)
  • Blood Type: Type O
  • Specialties: Cooking Oden

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.)
  • Break the Cutie
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father died when she was very young, and she regrets not getting to know him more. He ends up appearing in Ryo's near-death experience, although it's not clear if it was just her subconscious or an actual visitation from beyond the grave.
  • Daddy's Girl: Her interest in baseball was sparked by her father playing catch with her, and she has a tomboy streak.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Izumi's girly girl, and the girly girl to Koharu's tomboy.

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.

Voiced by: Ayako Kawasumi (JP), Margeaux Baulch (EN)

  • Batting Order: 5th Batter

Like Hikaru, she was also MVP of Junior High School Softball Competition in Kansai.

  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Companion Cube: Fifi (her "alien" doll that she talks to on occasion)
  • 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.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: Goes through one when she loses her "alien" Fifi.
  • The Quiet One: Has the least amount of dialog of the team members, usually only saying one line in some episodes, and usually to her "alien friend", Fifi.

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).
  • Fiery Redhead
  • Jerkass: Especially towards Yoko.
  • The Lad-ette: She is aggressive, crude, rude, likes to start fights and also a former delinquent and (formerly) an underage drinker.

  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Due to her former background as a delinquent, she is probably the most foul-mouthed of all the players on the team.
  • Tsundere: Type A
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Yoko's Girly Girl.

Koharu Hotta

Voiced by: Akiko Yajima (JP), Kira Vincent-Davis (Credited as "Kira") (EN)

  • Batting Order: 3rd Batter

  • Height: 5'1.5 inches / 156.6 cm
  • Weight: 110 pounds / 45,5 kg

  • Blood Type: Type O
  • Hobby: Fishing

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).

Yoko Tokashiki

Voiced by: Mayumi Iizuka (JP), Tiffany Grant (EN)

  • Batting Order: 7th Batter
  • Defense Position: Right field
  • Throws: Right-handed

  • Date of Birth: October 10th (Libra)
  • Blood Type: Type AB

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.

Mao Daidoji

Voiced by: Kokoro Shindo (JP), Shelley Calene-Black (EN)

  • Weight: Not Given
  • Date of Birth: March 3rd (Pisces)

Plucked from the judo team, the imposing but incredibly-bashful Mao is the only person who can catch Ryo's pitches. An excellent team member when she can overcome her personal shyness.

Kanako Mita

Voiced by: Rumi Kasahara (JP), Aninda Praptingtyas (EN)

  • Batting Order: 6th Batter
  • Defense Position: Shortstop
  • Throws: right-handed
  • Bats: right-handed
  • Height: 5' 3 inches / 160.3 cm
  • Weight: 107 pounds / 48.8 kg
  • Date of Birth: Jun 6th (Gemini) (D-Day!)
  • Blood Type: Type A
  • Hobbies: Reading
  • Specialty: Disguise

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.

  • Adorkable
  • 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.

Nene Mori

Voiced by: Taeko Kawata (JP), Jennifer K. Earhart (EN)

  • Team Position: Manager
  • Height: 5' 3.5 inches / 161.7 cm
  • Weight: 102 pounds / 46.5 kg
  • Date of Birth: September 7th (Virgo)
  • Blood Type: Type O
  • 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.

    Kisaragi Girls Management And Administration 

Shinsaku Kido

Voiced by: Koii Ishii (JP), Andy McAvin (EN)

The perpetually drunken coach of the Kisaragi Girls baseball team.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He used to play both professionally and as an amateur with Ryo's father, and knows exactly what the girls need to be able to do to win. When he wants to teach a lesson, he usually is not nice.

Keiko Himuro

Voiced by: Yoshiko Sakakibara (JP), Kelly Manison (EN)

The President of the Kisaragi school organization and the person who initiated the creation of the Kisaragi Girls baseball team, as well as Izuki's mother.

  • Parents as People: Still holds a candle for Hidehiko Hayakawa, which resulted in Izumi claiming that she never loved her daughter or her dead husband.
