I've loved this manga! I have no idea at all about baseball so it was a bit difficult to follow at times and I had to look a bunch of stuff up on Wikipedia, but the relationship between the characters was very nicely developed. Kind of a loose end, though, and I'm not a big fan of those, and Kou and Aoba looked exactly the same in some many panels?! It got a bit confusing at times. Still liked it enough to stay up on a working day to finish it!

This first book in the series sets up the characters, and their quirks, really well. The ending comes as a bit of a shock even if one, like myself, already knew what happened. Not being in the sf/fantasy genre, Cross Game's appeal is for sports fans, as well as for those who like a more naturalistic setting in their manga.

komik mitsuru adachi pertama yg belon2 udah bisa ngaduk2 emosi di seri 1-nya! tentang koh yg tetanggaan sama wakaba & aoba bersaudara, and as usual, there's always the adachi formula: baseball, childhood friends, a dog named 'punch', adachi's cameo appearance, and endless commercials of adachi's own comics :p

I'm not sports manga fan. But i enjoy every Adachi sensei series. Especially Cross Game. Volume 1 is a five star.
If your emotional, please don't read this. It is simply that great that it brought me to tears.
awalnya sih karena disaranin teman, tapi malah suka. Tapi sayangnya hanya punya dua seri, huh...
