Summary and Preview

Ookiku Furikabutte isn't just a baseball manga. It's the story of a timid young man who was made an ace pitcher in middle school because of family connections. Now he's in high school and it's his time to shine as an ace in his own right.

Reading this story will get your blood boiling, heart pumping and tears flowing. It has been popular since it was serialized, a true Japanese high school baseball manga!

has anyone seen the anime.... Permalink " "
Review by Prostyle
I've seen the anime its really funny, the main character Mihashi is really funny with his tardiness, he is kinda shy and with the new people he meets its really hilarious. If you like baseball it is worth it, its not so serious like Major but it shows the synergy between the pitcher and the catcher, and how fragile the pitchers are.
Its definitely slice of life too :) Permalink " "
