I have not read the manga (or the original "comic") before watching this movie but I was prompted to pick up the DVD as I've heard many good things about both the comic and the movie; the DVD was actually just sitting on my shelf for about a month, not having been opened and what not, until a friend of mine finally persuaded me to watch it with him -- the movie is basically about two twins and a girl-next-door whom dream to one day reach Koushi'en: a haven of high school baseball in Japan, much like what Wembley is to English football.
Although it was pointed out that some details of the movie actually differs from the manga, (but then again, what adaptation is 100% faithful to the original?) the movie does an excellent job in depicting high school baseball in Japan, quite possibly something japanophiles might want to study up to :)
Overall, great plot and good casting guarantees that this movie will be 116 minutes of your time well spent -- I suggest you invest on it as soon as possible!
