A different take on the common Japanese sports drama is Toshio Lee’s BOX!, telling the story of two high school students who take up boxing more or less willingly.
Set in a high school boxing club in Osaka BOX! is a rather down-to-earth drama, mixing coming-of-age motifs with an underdog story about failure and success. Starring Hayato Ichihara, Kengo Kora, Yu Kashii, Mitsuki Tanimura and Toshio Kakei. Out now.
