In the J-drama Shinjo is a dick and Hiratsuka is a retard in the truest spasticated sense...
Apart from that it's pretty good I think it works better as a drama then it would as an anime and I say that as a strong hater of J-drama's. Download link for the eps in English here.
Rookies is a funny series in as much as it doesn't translate as good into English, although it's mostly just the colloquialisms and jokes that don't translate so well. The story/characters are still just as good but all the English translations have a very White american dude slang feel to them which doesn't do it for me or match up well with the characters I always hear the voices sounding like the "american" voice actors used in the Sam cham baseball ep.

Well well well! Let's bring this thread alive to get attention:
For those who're interested to read Rookies:-
+ Find the scanlations of volume 1-13 @The Legendary Fifth Rookies Group's (L5RG) blogspot, located here.
+ Or @Deadbeat-Scans for volume 6 (from chapter 55 onwards) - volume 10. Their website is currently re-made and had me all WOAH -- right here.
+ Or if you're more comfortable with IRC (they offer torrents at L5RG), go to lurk as usual.
barbapapa has also kept the updates of L5RG to MH - latest post was here.
Hope to see a lot of people read this awesome manga.
I really like this manga but is it possible to find chapters above 175? I looked a lot but can't find even 176 . This manga is great but still didn't watch the drama :/ need to find a good source to download it.

I've been checking MangaUpdates and L5RG's blog for the past months and no new chapters have appeared. The raws are easy accessible, so I guess we should just wait for them to release new material...
Sorry for the double-post; but... Deadbet Scans & Illuminati seem to pick up Rookies again. Although the chapter they released was already available online, I hope they keep releasing new chapters.
Deadbeat's blog said they intend to finish the series "once and for all" so I'm hopeful them and Illuminati will finish it this time I literally fangasmed yesterday when I saw the release on Mangaupdates
