Nine Dragons Ball Parade just started its serialization in Shonen Jump weekly. The series is written by Mikiyasu Kamada and drawn by Ashibi Fukui, and follows the story of Tamao Azukida who dreams of joining Hakuo Gakuin’s baseball club. To do so, you have constantly trained and researched everything you need to be accepted.
On the day of the test, he meets an ignorant guy who has no idea how the test is going. Since he’s a catcher, he tries to signal big-name pitchers. However, they refuse to follow his signals as he is basically nobody. But when Ryuudou, the ignorant boy, reaches the mound, he follows Tamao’s signals and scores a strikeout. However, despite his analytical skills, Tamao does not join the team. Ryuudou also rejects her acceptance and decides to form a new team with Tamao.
Tamo and Ryuudou’s friendship is nostalgically similar to Hinata and Kageyama’s. More than that, the series gives off the vibe of a helpless dark horse knocking down powers. Since the first chapter ends with Ryuudou’s proposal, readers wonder what will happen next. If the mangaka plays it right, Nine Dragons Ball Parade it’s going to be a really entertaining series.
