Yes there is a manga about it. The name of this book is ‘Yamada’s Shuttle. Yamada is the name of the main character, a first year high school student. Yamada also means Japan in the old time.

The story goes like this. Yamada was a soccer player in his high school team. He has a twin sister who belongs to the school’s girl badminton team (badminton is a minority sport, his school doesn’t have boy badminton team). One day his twin sister asked him to go alone to a practice session. Yamada never think badminton is much a sport, he but he went with her anyway since the soccer practice was cancelled due to the rain.

In the gym, his twin sister asked him to play with her. But he was so bore by just watching people playing so he decided not worthy of trying and asked a boy (not from the same school) next court to play with his twin sister.

Fast-forward a little…

After some conversations with the boy, Yamada decided to challenge the boy for a quick game despite his twin sister’s warning not to do so. Well, he ended up was badly humiliated with 15-0. This experience had totally changed Yamada’s attitude towards badminton. He noticed that badminton is a game much deeper than what he once though. Later he found out that the boy was last years elementary champion.

Fast-forward a little … …

He was so attracted to badminton and the story of the boy also inspired him, of cause he want a revenge too, that he decided to quit soccer and join the school’s girl badminton team. (His school doesn’t have boy badminton team.) He became the only boy in the team and was trained with all the girls.


His badminton journey had begun… …

Well that is all I know about this story so far. I don’t know Japanese. So I am not responsible for any mistranslations.

It is a pretty cool story, isn’t it, at least for the beginning?
