Fantastic !
20 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hahaha, this movie is so funny. Group of 6 students in a volleyball team comes up with many crazy ideas, the first of them being if they can see their coach's boobs if they won a game.

Based on a novel by Munenori Mizuno , Oppai Balei or Oppai Volleyball is based on his story he's heard from a real life Volleyball coach's experience. But he's added many more comical and funny ideas into this story.

First I thought, maybe the story would be kind of wooden, but I was wrong in this regard. Actions of members of the volleyball team more than made up for the action needed to make this into a truly great movie.

The story is very original, and the characters are all well developed. This is one of the best acted Japanese movie of all times.

I'm giving this movie 4/5. Which is outstanding for a movie of this budget. Needless to say that this is one of the best movie to come out of Japan.
