LIVE ADAPTATIONS SUCKS? Well you're in for a treat.
15 October 2019 | by tawabarottSee all my reviews

In my humble opinion, i enjoyed the live action adaptation more than the anime. Yeah, seriously. The filler was cut out and you got the exact details that you needed. And everyone wants to know about Satou. The character that played him, knocked it out of the park, caught the ball and ran overtime. Seriously, couldn't put into words how much I enjoyed this movie. If you're not a fan of anime, you should still watch this movie. Criminally underrated.
