Taisho Yakyuu Musume is a title with a whole lot of Japanese in it, and it doesn't really tell you much about the game, does it? To explain real quick, and thus give you an idea of what this currently airing anime is all about, the Taisho era dated from 1912-1926, while "yakyuu" is the Japanese word for baseball -- and "musume" means "girl" or "daughter," depending on the context. So, here we have a series about Japanese girls in the 1920s playing baseball. What's not to love about it already?

Originally a light novel, then moving onto a manga, anime, and drama, the series is now getting a PSP makeover, based on the currently-airing anime. Classified as a "Taisho romance adventure," the story follows the girls as they gather together the members of their team, figure out how to play the game, and fight against the male-dominated world of baseball to show them what Girl's Power! is all about.

Made by 5pb. Games, the game will be called Taisho Yakyuu Musume ~Girl's Adolescent Journal~  and will follow the more than typical setup of an adventure novel, with branching storylines and the like (for multiple playthroughs.) The game will at least feature the show's entire cast, as they voice act their way through everything.

How often is it that you get to play as a Japanese version of A League Of Their Own? I'm tempted to play through it, if I could find a copy on the cheap -- the 6,090 yen price tag is a little much to stomach. Japan really needs to work on cutting down those prices.
