Koichi Kawato is a new teacher at Futakotamagawa Academy, whose baseball club features nothing but thugs and bullies. He takes genuine interest in those players and tries them onto a better path... even by quoting proverbs.
I watched the drama for 2 days straight.. And here I am doing a movie review of this fabulous story plot of this story. I found this movie to be a bit slow at first.. I thought it was going to be quite a disappointment to the drama since half-way through, it was not getting me anything. But then the other half made it for me! I was blown away and the read morelittle parts of comical view. The acting was superb.. everything was good.
I totally recommend this for all the people out there who has nothing to watch, only if you start out the drama first.
Both dramas are about a sports club making a come back. (Baseball for Rookies; Rythmic Gymnastics for Tumbling) Rookies has a teacher that is the influence to change while Tumbling is more of a combined effort. You can't help cheering both teams on and desperately hope they reach their dreams. Not to mention Yamamoto Yusuke stars in both. :)
