A Timeless, wonderful and thoughtful anime with baseball, romance and more.
Not every anime done in 1985 holds up well. TOUCH not only holds up well, but sets a standard for thoughtful drama that few animes meet or for that matter any series of any style.
What sets TOUCH apart is its thoughtful examination of the relationship between Tatsuya Uesugi and Kazuya Uesugi, who despite being identical twins are different as night and day. While this series has humor throughout, it seriously looks at a relationship that despite no intended malice has resulted in the serious diminishment of one of the main characters as a person.
The long-time childhood friend Minami plays a critical central role as she helps advance the story and plot in a way no other character could.
This is a thoughtful anime that has some sadness and poignancy interwoven throughout, yet still has enough fun and enough action to keep younger,less thoughtful audiences interested even if they are too young to understand the deeper issues being addressed.
Really geared for teenagers and above. Male characters do notice pretty female characters body and figure and do things real teenage boys do, i.e. look at girly magazines, etc.
