Eijun was a pitcher, who joined an elite school with Kazuya, a catcher. Eijun knew that he was far from being the best pitcher, however he didn't realize his potential nor understand his true talent, which really was what made him stood out among the team. he had a dream of becoming the best, the Ace of the team, a pitcher that would bring the team victory. together with the rest of the team, they strove for the championship.
while i was not a huge fan of sports series, thise one had almost everything in it, especially by being hilarious and surprisingly intense at times. Eijun's two-sided personality was sometimes frustrating to watch, but fortunately tolerable. he was comical at times, but serious and devoted when it came to the games. the unique way he pitched was in fact his true talent. the first half of the series moved rather slowly, even uninteresting. however for the last few episodes, when things finally got more intense than comical, it was where the highlight was.
