Her mother Hanako had taught her how to play imposing discipline and regimen, but following the former's death the daughter had felt free by quitting the sport and instead leading an ordinary life. One of her co-workers Akihiko asks her to go steady one day, but soon sleeps with a pretty co-worker called Airi. Having lost her chance with this man she quits her job and returns to her hometown. Here her mother once owned a ping pong club. At the same time, the man she lost has joined the company's ping pong club prompting her to want to beat him. She begins to practice again.

Romantic, funny and entertaining
9 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a woman who used to play table tennis because her mother was the coach of the town's table tennis club. After a hiatus of 15 years, she decides to play table tennis again to be close to the man she likes.

"Mix" is a typical romantic comedy. The great thing is that there is a lot of comedy. The characters are all different and distinctive, so it is really easy to tell who is who. The story is good, as it provides the background information on why Tamiko stops playing, then her struggle to play, then her struggle to practice very hard for the national competition. The final match is intense, engages me and makes me want to know the outcome of the match. I enjoyed it a lot as I found it entertaining.
