By: Adachi Mitsuru
Genre: Coming of Age, School Life, Baseball
Serialized In: Gessan
Taking place 26 years after the events of Touch, Adachi returns to Meisei Gakuen with his latest baseball manga, Mix. Again the story of two brothers, but very different than Tatchan and Kachan. Tachibana Souichiro is the star second year catcher for Meisei Middle School's baseball, Touma is the third baseman with the golden arm. The pair is joined by sister Otomi, now a middle school first year. With an apathetic coach and unmotivated ace, how will the brothers handle the remainder of their middle school life, and what awaits them in high school?
New from Mitsuru Adachi, the official follow up to his manga classics Touch, H2, and Cross Game.
This Manga is a Monthly series.

So Mix is a sequel to Touch? I haven't read Touch, so by reading the first chapter, do you think that it may have references to Touch?
From what I understand it merely inhabits the same universe, and school, as Touch. I predict whether you've read Touch or not won't make a difference. On a different note, is Adachi still doing Q & A or did he end that to start this?
I don't care what Shogakukan says, Mix is not really a sequel to Touch. Both take place in the same school, both are about brothers. That is the only direct connection. Adachi loves to make reference to his older manga, along with breaking the fourth wall and corny jokes, it's one of the trademarks of his style. None of the references are essential to the plot, they are fun Easter Eggs for dedicated fans. Reading his older manga is not essential for understanding Mix. Touch, H2, and Cross Game are classic manga, I highly recommend reading them. Read Mix first, it's only two chapters long, you can catch up in thirty minutes and move on to one of the predecessors.

Are there any scanlations around already?
If scans are too much to ask, how about a link to some raws.
staff are not allowed to link to scanlations or raws (owners request) but I will go out on a limb and drop a huge fucking hint:
if that does not make sense lrn2google
Okay, when Adachi spends an entire page talking about how it takes too long to cross a street I become filled with dread. Why? Because I've read Touch.

I just started reading this and I like it so far. I wonder if a romance element will be added? A step sibling romance between Touma and Otomi? And
What irregular scans? It's monthly, I keep track when the magazine is out and raws appear shortly after, I also know the scanslators and they usually have it done in under a week.
i read the so called scans and found them terrible . not cleaned or level and ofcourse many typo errors . TOUCH , a wonderful series and i am kind of ADACHI MITSURU admiror. story has just started and its already number 2 in japan weekly manga ratings .
First of all, I know there might be a language barrier, but you come across as a rude arse, try to apply the same standards for grammar to your own posts that you hold for scanslators.
The guys doing this are new but Adachi fans just like you, don't really know what you're trying to achieve bashing them here and on jcafe24 as well, their scans are by far not the worst I've read and they do have a comment section, you might get results if you tried posting it there and keep this thread in good spirits for the rest us.
