Storyline

Hiromichi Kojima, the star batter of the Lycaons, heads to the southern Japanese island of Okinawa to train and find a new pitcher for the team. There, he meets Toa Tokuchi, a 134-kmph pitcher and the undisputed king of a gambling form of baseball called "One Outs". At Kojima's urging, Tokuchi signs up with the Lycaons under an unusual contract: he gets 5,000,000 yen for every out he pitches, but loses 50,000,000 yen for every point he gives up. A high-level psychological game of baseball, gambling and logic is about to begin.. Written by Anonymous

Intense manipulation at its best
29 January 2015 | by cool_jojo_007See all my reviews

One of my friends suggested this anime when I was frantically asking around for other anime once I finished Death Note. I didn't have high hopes from it, but that was before I got sucked into the intense mind manipulation by the title character, Tokuchi Toua !! He reminds me of Yagami Light or L, as you please, and has a stark contrast from other genius level characters with an aloof, whimsical, arrogant and devilish nature. The only one aspect in which the anime could have improved was to have a little bit of back story on the title character, but nevertheless, doesn't take away the shine from an extremely solid and well built plot. For sports fans, this will take you to another level and I guarantee you, this will NOT disappoint !!
