All in all they're pretty good, I don't understand the encoding process very much but these seems just fine.

Thanks for bringing us new episodes. This is reminding me that Touch is one of the best anime ever made.

Thank you for bringing this show back to my attention. I watched the subbed versions a while back and it quickly became my favorite show ever, and now with these new and improved subs, I am happy to be watching it all over again. It is an amazing show and I truly appreciate the efforts of those who help to make it available to watch.

Is the anime much better than the manga?

I liked touch, but when it comes to Adachi's stuff, I liked Miyuki and H2 a lot more than touch.

iirc Touch followed very closely the manga so if you liked H2's manga more than Touch i doubt you will change your view. On the bright side Touch (anime) is bazillion times better than H2 (anime) so...

Since C-A is giving us a second chance to rewatch and discuss all over again this anime, why don't we just do that?

Episodes 5 and 6 were released last week.

Spoiler for episode 5:


Spoiler for episode 6 and for further ahead on the story of TOUCH! So be warned:

I'd say Touch anime is about as good as the manga, for better or for worse.

When it comes to anime I prefer Miyuki and Hiatari Ryouko! over this one; as for his manga, I'd have to vouch for Miyuki, H2, and Rough.

Still, you might find Touch enjoyable as long as Tatsuya and Minami don't turn you off.

The best part of the series IMO. Completely changed the mood of the anime.

I just finished watching this series, and I can say that I am throughly impressed. The series is at its best as a character interaction oriented series, and it has pretty decent character development dynamics, which together makes it a very strong series in the characters department. However, I think that the story had problems defining itself at times.

Spoiler for there aren't any big spoilers here, but I may be slipping something. Full series review:


Overall: 8.8, rounded to 9. Excellent and memorable series.

In any case, after seeing this and the currently ongoing Cross Game I got interested into Adachi's works. Before plungung myself into his manga works, I wanted to ask if there is any other good anime adaptation of one of his series? I've heard that H2's isn't all that good so maybe I'll pass on that,but how about others, like Miyuki? That and, which are his best manga works, so I can start with those? I have heard high praise with Rough, but I wanted to ask if there were any others.

Although I disagree in that this is one of those series that I personally recommend to everyone, I do agree that I found the ending to be slightly lacking and fell short of being completely satisfying ala Maison Ikkoku. Actually I personally thought that the duo was relatively free of melodrama and more straightforward with each other than typical anime, eg, when Minami finds out Tatsuya was forced into a "date" with Nitta's sister, rather than get jealous like every other female anime lead, she just teases him about it. On the whole I thought they were refreshingly direct for most of the series.

I also agree that the direction of the series changes quite a bit, but I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing, just realistic - changing from quieter training seasons to Koshien tournament, etc. I do think it could upset viewers who started the series, saw a high school romantic comedy in the first couple of episodes, and then were treated to a baseball drama during some of the later episodes.

Kashiwaba is a character I enjoyed. To the very end he refrains from being sentimentalized too much, which takes a lot of restraint. The scene at the end at the hospital is one of my favourites.

I suppose that I agree with Harada, another character I liked. I found the turning over of the "dumb bully" character refreshing but he kind of faded off towards the end.

Plan to watch the sequel movies? I reviewed them here. If you do, my advice is to skip MLY, I thought it was horrible.

Yeah, I have read the reviews on your blog, in fact it was your non spoiler review which convinced me to watch Touch in the first place. Kudos for that
In fact I found the first season (25 episodes or so) to be the weakest by far of the series. I guess I found 24-50 to be the best, followed by the third season.

My personal favorite was when the original coach recognized him by who he was. Literally took me by surprise, and a good one at that.

Touch is a classic. As such, it kind of defies my better judgment, in terms of actually rating it - I can say, however, that the live-action movie was very cute, even if it obviously condensed way too much story into less than two hours.
However, I find it easy to say it's not my personal favorite work from Adachi-sensei.

You mentioned Rough, Proto. That would be my personal favorite. I even liked the movie.
As for other manga works of his, I loved H2 (the anime kinda sucks, tho), Katsu!, Short Program and Adventure Boys. But there are a lot of other stuff to read (and, obviously, the ongoing Cross Game and Q & A rank highly on that list).

Thanks for the recommendations. However, I'd love to see if there were any other anime works of his that you would recommend. Personally, I'm more of a sound oriented person so I love my VA'ing and OST's. Which is not to say that I won't read a manga, but if there is a good anime alternative I'd take it.

Well, you could try the Slow Steps anime, then. It's actually quite fun and short.

The Miyuki anime is very cute too with the incredible voice of Miyuki Wakamatsu. Hiyatari Ryoukou is very good too. The bad thing, is that both shows doesn't have complete english tranlations.

Too bad you don't enjoy manga, the magic of Adachi is mainly portrayed on his mangas.

And H2 anime isn't as bad as they say. The characters design differs just a tiny bit and it doesn't have an ending, just that.
