More of JPs Love for Baseball in DEAD BALL
I’m a fan of Yudai Yamaguchi’s ”Battlefield Baseball,” so hopfully, DEAD BALL will be able to entertain just as well.
Synopsis: “When he was a child, baseball prodigy Jubei Yakyu (Tak Sakaguchi) accidentally caused the death of his father with a super-powered, deadly fireball pitch. Having sworn off the game for life because of the incident, Jubei is now 17 and the most cold-blooded juvenile delinquent in Japan. Sent to a reformatory for a killing spree, Jubei learns that his estranged brother had died there earlier from a mysterious illness.
In order to fulfill his brother’s last wishes, Jubei reluctantly joins the prison baseball team when they take on the Black Dahlias, a sexy squad of killer high school girls who are determined to slaughter every last man on Jubei’s team! But the prison officials have plans of their own for Jubei, including an alliance with a squadron of uniformed Nazi officers! Suddenly, Jubei finds himself not only fighting to win the game, but also to save his own life!”
