Newtype 7/1986 Anime Headline article for Go-Q-Choji Ikkiman.
I remember seeing 1 episode of this years ago. The main character has crazy pitching strength but it’s not developed to its full potential. Lots of comedy in the episode that I remember. It was named Ricky Star in France where it was dubbed and aired. I see that it was dubbed and named Battle Ball. I have not recollection of this here in the states. Does anyone else remember and or know where it was aired as Battle Ball?
Go-Q-Choji Ikkiman op (poor quality)
Ricky Star op (way better quality, that pitch animation is spot on!)
ANN entry (synopsis seems to favor a “localized” version)
