“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day.

You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”—Woody Allen (via thediarists)

When her childhood friend Miyata Yuuki had to take time off as the team’s manager due to health reasons, Minami offers to fill in for her with the ambitious goal of, the stadium where national championships are held. She’s unaware how weak Hodokubo High School’s club is at first, but later comes across Peter Drucker‘s “Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices” book and starts applying its business principles to turn the team around.
Author Iwasaki Natsumi has stated that the idea actually came to him when he was playing Final Fantasy XII and couldn’t figure out an effective team composition to defeat certain monsters, after which he read another player mentioning Drucker in a blog. Upon reading the book, he found the concepts so transformative that they moved him to tears and inspired him to write his novel.”
