The losing streak [Recommendation]

The Losing Streak is a manhwa series with a lot of kissing, baseball and intimate relationships. It’s definitely not suitable for very young people.

The Losing Streak Summary

Kiss more, win more!

Seunga’s a lifelong baseball fan, but she’s on the verge of calling it quits. Her team, the Futures Victory, is on a notoriously long losing streak — until she kisses a fellow fan, and the Futures happen to win.

Now back in the game, the two get intimate to push the Futures up the ranks…

The Losing Streak [Recommendation]
The Losing Streak is available in several versions, including a 19+ version which probably features some smuttiness.

However, the versions available on Manta.net is the 15+ version.

There’s definitely a lot of kissing and hinting towards intimate moments, but nothing is shown explicitly. Honestly, the summary makes the series seem so immature and stupid, but I actually quite like it.

Seunga is a character which has more depth and reasoning behind liking baseball. She’s not as one-dimensional as she seems, which I can appreciate.

There’s some characters which are quite one-dimensional and clearly made out to be the villains, but that’s not the main focus.

The Losing Streak [Recommendation]
As for the art, it’s overall very good but I hate some artistic choices.

The male characters are drawn like s*x on legs, but that’s clearly the artist’s choice. The actual drawing style isn’t bad, although I don’t necessarily love it all the time.

The male lead’s sister had the worst eyelashes I’ve seen in a long time, but those are being fixed later on. Another thing I’ve been noticing are the intimate moments, they’re clearly censored but just in a quite stupid way.

A guy pulls off the female character’s t-shirt and she happens to have another white piece of clothing underneath. It’s just so obvious that it’s the censoring, which is a pity.

I’ve been reading some other stories which are cut or otherwise gets altered in a way which doesn’t take away from the story.

What I can see, the story is quite short so I definitely recommend checking it out. It’s only about 36 chapters, excluding epilogue and so on.

Final thoughts: If you like baseball and romance, this could be something for you!
