This is one of my favorite seinen series. All of the characters are really well characterized, and I think that Higuchi really does a great job at capturing the subtleties of baseball. Each of the games really feels like a tense mind game.
So, the next release came out at long last. Things are getting really intense. It's nice to see Mihashi growing as a character and managing to hold up mentally even with Abe not there. Tajima is doing pretty well considering the tough position he's been put in.
Do you know where you can get raw manga for this? (it would be nice if it was free.)
Chapter 58, we're in post-anime chapters now, hurray!
How does Abe not see the point in doing those non-baseball related tasks with Mihashi?
Mass dump of new scans.
Chp. 59 was adorable, poor Shinooka.
Chp. 60 was hilarious, "how long can you last?"
Chp. 61 I don't really care about what Haruna's team is up to.
Chp. 62 Ditto
Chp. 63 Ditto again, but at least Abe and Mihashi managed to hold a full normal conversation.
Talkin' to myself, what exactly about this is seinen?
Chp. 64 More "filler" with the Haruna vs. the twins game. I think the point of this "filler" is because whoever loses here will be the first team Nishiura goes up against in the fall tournament or whatever and they'd like to get characterization out of the way so that predestined battle will be much more emotional. I still don't care, though.
Chp. 65 "Filler" appears to be over. It seems that the game had more purpose than I orginally thought. On the other hand, goddamn Haruna, acting like he's the main character and stuff.
Chp. 82 Oh no, Tajima caught the catching bug and LOL at his face, wonder if this'll change things.
