About Ping Pong Manga Volume 1

Ping Pong manga volume 1 features story and art by Taiyo Matsumoto.

Ace high school table tennis players push their passion to the limit in this story of self-discovery, told by Eisner Award winner Taiyo Matsumoto.

Makoto "Smile" Tsukimoto doesn’t smile even though he’s got a natural talent for playing ping pong. As one of the best players in school, all hopes are on him to win the regional high school tournament, but winning is not what Smile really wants to do. Will the fierce competition to be number one bring out his best or drive him away from the game? Ping Pong is Taiyo Matsumoto’s masterwork reflection on friendship and self-discovery, presented here in two volumes, featuring color art, the bonus story Tamura and an afterward by the original Japanese series editor.

Translated by Michael Arias, director of Tekkonkinkreet.

Finally it's in English!

I came to know Ping Pong through the Yuasa anime series back a few years ago and I fell in love with it and Taiyo Matsumoto's work ever since. I really did not believe we would ever see it published in english but I'm glad I was wrong. If you enjoy the anime or Matsumoto already you will absolutely like this manga. This edition is really nice with good quality paper and it's slightly taller and wider than VIzbig editions but is not quite as thick as it only contains about 2.5 volumes per book.

If you aren't already a fan this is the perfect place to start. Especially recommended if you like sports and character driven drama manga.
