I don't like this manga all that much. Also the fact that I cannot distinguish where is Aoba and where is Koh annoys me to no end. I think it speaks volumes about the style, if one has problems on distinguishing where is male and where is female.

I liked it, a typical Adachi manga. the way he builds up the excitement of each match and the character development of the protagonist or even the team is just amazing..Although adachi works are not the bests out there, they have their own charm, with those simple lines but with big meaning and sort of moving, cute love stories usually between close family friends, and some tragic events. I mean i just love his works. Sure there's a pattern in his works and same with the character figures(sure is simple & familiar) but still, they have their own magic..

...and at the same time so predictable. Mitsuru Adachi remains fun to read, with a humor proper to him. As expected.

The tragic event in the first volume makes this manga special! There is always an element of sadness due to what happened--I am hooked biggrin

The series thus far has had quite a few emotional moments, as to why they are that is hard to define. An every day thing feels as important as it is for the chars in the series. It has all the possibility of turning into Adachi's best one yet, will have to see how it goes along.

Good baseball manga, but it doesn't touch Major imo. Also though this was made 2 years ago, the way he draws people looks quite outdated. Aoba and Koh are hard to distinguish from eachother.

great story that can only get better

The art so simple and warm that you have to love it. I always felt if the mangaka drew a little better, the series would be much better, but this is his style. It has great subtility and geniality to it.

Art put aside, this mangaka is one of the best at story and character development.

if you've read an adachi manga before, you know what to expect. a sports genius (usually baseball), childhood lovers, a dog named punch, a fat friend, romantic rivalry, the show-offy guy who thinks he's the main characters rival but is not, sarcasm and irony, and characters whom look no different from each other. personally, i find the whole concept of all adachi sports manga to be the same, but yet, i can't help but label all of them as masterpieces. and i don't even know the reason!

adachi has no originality, but strangely, his manga has this undescribable charisma to it that just makes you wanna read more of it. its really safe to say that all adachi manga deserves at least an 8, including this golden egg.

Promising, i've read 8 of adachis longer mangas, i like him, not my all time favorite but he has a certain charm. It can be found here as well. Promises to be one of his best. Drama, some romance, sports and a bit of comedy, a read you should enjoy, if you're into any of the first three genres, the comedy is just a big plus.
