Release date: 7/20/02
Genre: Sports comedy
Cast: Kubozuka Yosuke, Arata, Sam Lee, Nakamura Shido, Okura Koji, Takenaka Naoto, Natsuki Mari
Plot: Peco (Kubozuka), a really good table tennis player, meets his match against a player from China (Lee), but there is another talented player Peco must face. Will he meet the challenge or give up his lifelong dream of being the world’s best table tennis player?
What is good: Kubozuka Yosuke once again pulls off an amazing character.
What is bad: I can’t think of anything that really detracts from the movie.
Letter rating: A
Overall: I really love Kubozuka’s acting and his skills shine here. The rest of the cast supports him well, even though I did find myself giggling a little bit about all the drama that takes place around ping pong. This is definitely a movie that every jdorama lover should watch at least once.
