Big Windup! , おおきく振りかぶって
おおきく振りかぶって 〜夏の大会編〜, Ookiku Furikabutte The Summer Tournament Chapter
Big Windup! (おおきく振りかぶって) is a baseball manga series by Asa Higuchi, serialized in the monthly seinen Afternoon magazine since 2003. It has been adapted into an anime TV series, animated by A-1 Pictures, which premiered in Japan on TBS. The manga series won the prestigious Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for best creative work in 2006. In 2007, it won the Kodansha Manga Award for general manga.
After a falling out with his middle school team, Mihashi enters Nishiura high school with no social skill, a warped opinion of himself, and every intention to quit baseball. The newly formed Nishiura baseball team, however, needs a pitcher, and they welcome him. Most enthusiastic is Abe, a domineering catcher with his own game issues. And so a battery every bit as complementary as it is dysfunctional is formed. If they can figure out how to work together, they might be the answers to each other’s problems-and the team might be able to win.
