This looks promising. I'm having 'Sakamichi no Apollon' vibes to this somehow.. perhaps the bonding of males?
I am not to fond of sports, but I think I'll give this one a shot!


I also think it'll really focus on their bonding. The original creator is Asano Atsuko who's also the creator of No.6 - a series immensely focused on character development and the different relationships the characters have to each other. I'm really looking forward to this series.
