Overview

Drama with a light touch, Cross Game will change how you see shonen manga.

Reads R to L (Japanese Style), for T audiences. Cross Game is a moving drama that is heartfelt and true, yet in the brilliant hands of manga artist Mitsuru Adachi, delightfully flows with a light and amusing touch. The series centers around a boy named Ko, the family of four sisters who live down the street and the game of baseball. This poignant coming-of-age story will change your perception of what shonen manga can be.

Wakaba’s last dream before she set off on that fateful day was of Ko pitching in front of a packed house at Koshien. Ko’s been training every day since, trying to emulate the best pitcher he knows—Wakaba’s sister Aoba. But will Aoba’s seeming hostility toward him and a new high school coach who only cares about winning prevent Ko from fulfilling the dream?
