Critical Acclaim

Kokoyakyu brings us the players, coaches, parents, yell leaders and spectators who make the Koshien a life-altering experience. . . . The approach of director-editor Kenneth Eng is intimate but never intrusive. . . . The joy of victory and, in particular, the agony of defeat are palpable. . . . For an American audience, Kokoyakyu succeeds marvelously . . .
