Kirishima is the most famous baseball player in Japan. However, an unfortunate injury forces him to retire. His family abandons him, and all that's left is a vacant coaching position at a local baseball team for young boys. This club is on the verge of being disbanded—so far, they have never won a single game. Will Kirishima be able to help the club?

 

Through the television screen, popular baseball player Kirishima tells the kids, "dreams come true." His baseball techniques are so fantastic that he is called the "miracle man." But in reality, Kirishima is an arrogant and selfish flirt who spends money like there's no tomorrow.

Mizuki is a girl who wants to become a lawyer. Her brother plays on Kirishima's team, but can't stand the sight of Kirishima. She hates men who fool around, and especially those who deceive children. Will Mizuki and Kirishima be able to come to a mutual understanding?

Cute, Funny, and Lifts the Spirit... [Rating: 9/10]
I liked it because it showed a little team (Jaguars) earn help from a hero and became the best team in their city....I wish I knew the names of the actors who played elementary school baseball team, they're so ADORABLE!!! Sorimachi Takashi, was a good actor to play this role, seeing as he plays a stuck up baseball player well....

I LOVED Hirai Ken's theme to this dorama, it also would add the sorrow for the certain sad parts within the movie, as they're being played or re-shown in the ending credits....

Very funny at some point and then very sad on others...I CRIED....

2.  Great Kirishima [Rating: 10/10]
I like drama that hero will not dominant everything. In this drama the lead actor have bad attitude but he change because of people around him, because he have no choice and he learn that famous without people respect is nothing and need to be a good team member to others. In real life the hero not necessary an angel...they might have a bad and good site of them. Love is not the main plot for this drama so if you kind a romantic viewer this is not suitable for you. I like the way leading actress fall in love with the lead actor...she like the brand new of Kirishima and she believe he can change his bad attitude...and she trust him. I wonder why Kirishima character did not try to see his son...such a waste...hope this drama will have 2nd session which stress more on his relationship with his son through his career. The other actors also give good peformance especially the childrens..they can act..not bad....I recomended if you like the motivational kind of drama...worth it to watch.

7.  Pretty Good [Rating: 9/10]
A great baseball star suffers an enjury and can't play professionaly, a little boy writes to him to come coach their elementary baseball team, and his sister helps to make hetr little brother dream come true.

Great baseball dorama. Sorimachi overdoes it as usual at times, but Haegawa kyoko makes up for that. I find that you don't have to be really into baseball to be into this dorama. Its funny and endearing and a recommended watch.

8.  Better than Expected [Rating: 8/10]
This is a typical dream come true type of drama. Kinishima, the main character, sets out on a journey towards discovery, whch leads to inner change, and he becomes a new self and changes the lives of the people around him in one way or another. It's fun and entertaining to watch, and I like the way the writers took this simple and fun concept and made the entire drama that way. There were issues and obstacles to conquer, but they never got tied down to it or let things drag. Kinishima is the typical male lead, with the girl liking him but he never lets it get to him or maybe he never noticed it, until the end, that is.
I think everyone did a great job here. I can see why viewers would make comparisons of previous dramas they've seen with these actors. But these are actors portraying these roles, and most of the time they're different roles, so it's unfair to compare them to past dramas. It's a totally different case, different directing, different settings, storylines, everything. Sometimes a role is a hit, sometimes it's a miss. Either way, it's the story and the roles that they play and weather they can play that role well or not that is important.
I admit however, there were times where I felt like Kinishima was Onizuka in GTO, although I am not sure if that was intentional or not!
Also, the drama got better and better towards the end, which made this drama better than expected.
