Adachi's most successful work, made into 3 movies and a 108-part TV series. It is loosely divided into three parts. In the first part, the main theme was the love triangle between Tatsuya, Kazuya, and Minami. Uesugi Tatsuya and Kazuya were twins, and Asakura Minami was the girl next door. The second part of Touch concentrated on Tatsuya trying to put himself into Kazuya's shoes. Tatsuya got "traded" from the boxing team to the baseball team for a picture of Lum with an autograph of Takahashi Rumiko.
Tatsuya pitched the Meisei team into the second round of the regional tournament, but lost to Nishimura and Seinan High School in an extra inning game while pitching a no-hitter. Minami, who had been the baseball team manager, also became a member of the school's rhythmic gymnastics team. Minami did exceptionally well and made it to the national tournament. The third part of Touch concentrated on Tatsuya making himself good enough for Minami. Meisei got a new coach because the old coach got sick. The new coach worked the team like the devil. But it paid off when Meisei made it to the finals of the regional tournament to face Nitta and Sumi Technical High School.
