Wow, this drama was pure brillaince. The start was fast pace and even when it seemed slow you were so caught up in the moment that it didnt bring down the movie.

Although some may say this drama was too emotional I believe that its a good thing, these kids went from fighting over nothing to fighting for their dream. I feel that this movie struck every chord that I expected and even hit some key points that I didnt expect. The tone of the movie switches well and I have to admit that I seriously stayed up at night telling myself "only one more episode." This drama is in my top 10.

I'm a little biased when it comes to sport movies, especially baseball ones. One of the main reasons why i decided to watch it. Ive seen other baseball dramas and I've always been eh about them..

but this one was great. i absolutely loved it. It's more than just a baseball drama. it's about coming together as a team again after all hell breaks loose. It has it's real serious moments but it also has a lot of comedic moments so it balances out well.

I love the cast. they all work well with each other and all play yankees i guess well lol

love the music. GReeeeN always has great songs and kiseki is just simply an amazing song.

would easily recommend this drama to people
