Description
Natsuhiko Sakurada, having won three billion dollars in lottery transferred to the Millionaire Private School, that catered for the children from wealthy families. This is all for the sake of seeking his childhood friend, Shin, whom he used to play baseball with. This school is managed by a pair of twins, who are the very popular and smart young masters of the Jinnai family.

But, unexpectedly, this school does not have a baseball team and his room-mate, one of the Jinnai's twins, is very distant towards him.

In order to setup a baseball team to find Shin, what would Natsuhiko do?

Find out in this lovely, sweet and hilarious story.

average at best I would say. I like this mangakas works, ie kishidou club etc, but this one didn't really do anything for me. The story itself is kind of rushed I feel and could have delved deeper into the characters history. Read if you are bored and have time to waste.

i don't know who wrote that description, and i don't feel like editing it right now. suffice it to say that the story isn't actually "lovely, sweet, and hilarious". if one pays any attention to the background, it is in fact quite sad, and no amount of chibification and gags distracted me from what has been done to make the jinnai brothers into what they are; and what they are is seriously damaged. i am also a bit tired of the "i love you but apparently am too emotionally stunted to tell you that and instead i'll make you my sex slave" trope, so i am looking at this manga less favourably than i otherwise might. but hey, at least it's not rape. natsu is a scrappy, loyal, indomitable fellow, and he's the bright light in this manga, though not bright in the sense of being particularly intelligent (except he isn't as stupid as the bad naming in the yasca translation makes him appear). i found the manga seriously uneven in its mix of drama and comedy, and i would have liked to see the plot be played out better, but it's not a bad read.

if you're reading it in scanlations, get the one by hochuuami because it is a) much better english, b) nicely edited, and c) done from uncensored raws. the one by yasca was done from (chinese?) raws which were totally mutilated.

This story is very interesting. It was lots of fun reading it. A very cutesy manga with its mix of action and drama all in one. Plus of couse you get ur seme taking advantage of the uke at first,but its a happy ending!
