Adachi Mitsuru's "H2" is a delightful and simple tale of two young men finding their place in the game of baseball. It is also a testament to why the sports genre is one of the most powerful in storytelling.

Known for his work on "Touch", "Katsu", and more recently, "Cross Game", Adachi Mitsuru has rightfully earned his place as one of manga's most influential artists. People may complain that his stories are merely copy-pasted from one another (just how many baseball manga has he created so far?) but there is a reason for why he rarely strays from the usual: nobody else can combine the read more

I recently finished this manga only a few hours ago and really wanted to write a review immediately after finishing it up, as so it would be completely fresh in my mind. However, after reading it through, I could not help but to dedicate a few hours to think over what I had just read. Let me begin by saying that I had not read any of Adachi Mitsuru's works and after hearing positive things about this manga-ka, decided to go for one of his completed, yet somewhat recent works, H2. With Touch receiving many of the accolades of being a great read more

It is difficult to succinctly express the brilliance of H2. On the surface, H2 appears to be yet another generic entry in the overcrowded list of high school baseball manga. Yet, it slowly reveals itself to be so much more than just that - featuring both breadth and depth in its characterization, powerful character dynamics, and a range of emotionally resonant arcs - all of which are bolstered by its impeccable sense of style.

As with any Adachi work, H2 differentiates itself with its bizarre sense of humor. A master of comedy, Adachi employs a wide repertoire of tools to create many hilarious moments. He constantly read more

Out of Adachi's 3 big baseball mangas, H2 is the worst.

The flaws include bad pacing, and an unrewarding ending after beign dragged over 300 chapters. This is a tricky read, like some of Adachi's other works it has a drop of quallity near the end, and obviously some very bad humor and filler pages.

The pros are that the side characters are nice and had some nice back story, even if they are forgetten after their respective arcs.

But the biggest flaw is that you feel like Hiro and Hideo don't evolve a lot during the manga, you don't see a real development, Hikari and Haruka you read more
