Summary: Takahashi's first story was based on a popular song of the day, "Densen Ondo" (Electric Line Workman's Song) and also the mega-popular baseball manga "Kyojin no Hoshi" (Star of the Giants). The original manga was about an alcoholic father who pushed his son into baseball and made him endure hellish training in order to become the best. Takahashi's version included her beloved Osaka-based Hanshin Tigers versus the nearby Kobe team.
