Water Polo Yankees
Aired on Saturdays from 11:10-11:55p.m.


“Water Polo Yankees” is Japan’s first drama about a youthful crowd that is based around the aquatic sport. The main character, delinquent returnee Naoya Inaba (Yuto Nakajima), who boasts his chivalry, a quality that has long been lost in today’s world, is transferred to a high school in Japan on the verge of being closed down, where perfunctory students spend their days lazing away, without a trace of ambition. By chance, Naoya and the perfunctory students end up playing water polo together. It turns out that the town Naoya moved to was known for water polo, a combative sport where anything can happen. Upon losing a match to rival Suiran High School, Naoya swears to himself that he will someday reach the top.

Don’t miss this story of youthful ardor and passion!
