Epic 70's philipsophical Wuxia film from the great King Hu:
Ive heard of that comic... big in Shonen jump a few years back. One of those semi-formulaic 'occupational' manga about training to be a great Table Tennis player/Chef/Pachinko player/Accountant/Sherpa/Martial artist/Politician/Sushi Chef/Bass Fisherman etc... but with a bit of a twist. I love that stuff. They have the whole aspirational thing down pat, and the competitions/challenges just get more and more intense and ridiculous as the story progresses.Ness Rowlah said:"Ping Pong" as shown on BBC4 in Jonathan Ross's ongoing "Asian Invasion" series.
Built on some manga series or novel, fresh, amazingly different and good.
