Touch is a shounen story about two twin brothers, a pretty girl next door, and that good old pastime of baseball. The manga was written by one of the most well known manga-ka out there, Adachi Mitsuru in the early 80's (1981-1986). He's a wonderful writer who tends to write stories that are related to baseball and Koshien, the stadium where the All High School Baseball Tournament is held.

Stories about sports in the anime and manga genre nowadays have been mostly dominated by popular series such as the Prince of Tennis, Eyeshield 21 and Hajime no Ippo, to name a very select few. These are your standard shounen sports stories where its basically the coming of age party of a shounen hero from a place of mediocrity to the path of greatness. As heart-warming as these stories sound, their execution are somewhat similar and highly predictable. And they rarely try to touch on deeper themes. That is where the magic of Adachi Mitsuru comes into play. His works read more

I give the story a 9.The story is a great read.Touch is mostly about

2 boys who are twins.and 1 girl who are all childhood friends.the younger brother kazuya is exceptionally talented and good in sports and studies.And tatsuya is the boy who is the twin of kazuya,kazuya tends to be tardy.But he has talent as well.but He is too tardy to use it.


I rate this a 10/10

Both stories, done by Adachi Mitsuru, tell stories about the great pastime that is baseball. In addition, they both also have deep romance stories that involve childhood friends.

So here we have yet another of Adachi's baseball mangas. You can found the same childhoodfriend setting, only this time we have two girls and one boy. Both of these concentrate mainly on baseball and getting to Koshien, but have a nice romance going on all the way through the series.
