Description: Any other relevant information: Adapted by hit-maker Katsuyuki Motohiro from a manga by Kazuhiko Shimamoto, this cartoon comedy delights in throwing every kind of catastrophe at the baseball team from Zenryoku High. Headmaster Hiroshi Fujioka wants to dissolve the team, their director Naoki Tanaka is an ex-wrestler prone to making gnomic utterances ("That is that. This is this."), and their opponents are all good - unlike them, a bunch of misfits, nerds and wimps. Just when it seems as if the team is making progress (they "win" a match when the other team fails to show due to the rain), team captain Tetsuji Tamayama falls in love with cute, gutsy manager Maki Horikita.
