[Yowakutemo Katemasu] – 弱くても勝てます
This is the story of Aoshi-sensei, a substitute teacher at his prestigious alma mater known for sending most of the graduates to Tokyo University. At school, he met the 5 member baseball club who have never won any matches, they prefer outfield that infield, they only practice for three hours a day and spent the remaining time for studies. Despite all their shortcomings, Aoshi-sensi became interested in the group, guided with his principle that the it’s possible for the weak to triumph, and decides to lead them toward Koshien.
The drama is said to be an original story based loosely on “Yowakutemo Katemasu – Kaisei Academy Yakyuubu no Theory” by non-fiction writer Takahashi Hidemine which talks about how Kaisei Academy (one of the top private boys’ school in Japan) managed to transform its baseball team. As part of the preparations for his role, senior high schools nationwide can apply through NTV’s website to get Ninomiya to visit their school so that he can learn more about their baseball team.LOL
