TOUCH is one of the highest masterpiece of Japanese cartoon. (1981~1986) Cartoonist: Mituru Adachi / 安達 充   Singer: Yosimi Iwasaki / 岩崎良美

Touch follows the lives of three people: Kazuya and Tatsuya Uesugi (identical twin brothers) and Minami Asakura.

They've lived next to each other since they were babies, and their parents even built a playhouse in the yard in order to keep them from damaging the houses.

As they grew into their teens, they suddenly noticed that one of them was a girl, and Kazuya and Minami became closer.

Kazuya, the younger twin, was an excellent student (as was Minami).

Tatsuya is really talented but also a bit of a slacker. Since middle school, Kazuya has received awards and recognition for excellence as a pitcher and baseball player.

Tatsuya, however, is more inclined to let his brother take the limelight, as he is unwilling to directly compete with Kazuya.

This includes Minami as well; while most people (including their parents) suggest that Minami and Kazuya will make a perfect couple, Minami tends to prefer Tatsuya.

During the first year in high school, however, Kazuya is hit and killed by a truck while saving a child on his way to the final match of the local qualifying baseball tournament.

Because of Kazuya's death, Tatsuya is eventually convinced by Minami to take over where his brother left off and help lead the team to Kōshien, the stadium where the national high school baseball championships are held.

At first, Tatsuya doesn't want to have anything to do with it, but after talking to many friends and thinking it over, he decides to become focused and help out the team.

At the same time, Minami dedicates herself to making it to the All Japan Gymnastics Tournament.

Touch tells the story of how Kazuya's memory brings them together . (Wikipedia)
