Description
Touch is a shounen story about two twin brothers, a pretty girl next door, and that good old pastime of baseball. The manga was written by one of the most well known manga-ka out there, Adachi Mitsuru in the early 80's (1981-1986). He's a wonderful writer who tends to write stories that are related to baseball and Koshien, the stadium where the All High School Baseball Tournament is held.

Won the 28th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

I have now read 4 of Adachi's works (Katsu, H2, Miyuki, and Touch) and this is one of the best. To be maybe because it does not really end with any of the ties incomplete, you don't really have some sort of hope that it would turn out differently. It is frustrating seeing Tatsuya struggle with his feelings and yet beautiful to see Minami so patient with him. Tatsuya never really stands out and with that it makes him a much better character. The personalities and charisma of the characters make for very admirable characters. I don't recommend watching either of the movies that take place after the manga story line, they truly ruin that open ended taste Adachi likes so much.

My favourite of Adachi's work. Prolly, because the main characters understand each other very well and they make their feelings clear early on.

great manga...
some ppl may not like it cuz of lack of fan service but its still pretty funny.
Mostly its about a rivalry between two twins who seem completely different but both like the same girl...

its refreshing cuz this manga isnt about the art but more the storyline.

It started out so well, then BAM, the incident at the end of volume 7 is just screwed up. Out of nowhere, didn't fit at all, too depressing... H2 is much much better, read that instead.

Touch is one of Adachi's best works! It captures the emotions of highschool students who have lost and still hold hope. It's simplicity and complexity is the key to it's popularity. If your looking for no stop action and graphics, this manga is not it. Rather, it's pages of symbolism and mystery.
