YesAsia Editorial Description

Yamamoto Yusuke, Seto Koji, Miura Shohei, Yanagishita Tomo, Daito Shunsuke, and AAA's Nishijima Takahiro take on the manly sport of rhythmic gymnastics in the 2010 TBS drama Tumbling. Appearing in his first drama lead role, Yamamoto Yusuke plays Crows-style high school delinquent Wataru, who has to join a school club to make up for his bad attendance. For lack of a better choice and to get close to the cute new transfer student (Okamoto Azusa), Wataru joins the ragtag rhythmic gymnastics team led by Yuta (Seto Koji). The beleaguered team gets no respect in the school, but things begin to change when hot-tempered Wataru decides to become serious about the sport. EXILE's Akira co-stars as a teacher in the drama.

Tumbling Complete Box comes with Episodes 2 to 11 of the drama plus making of (the first episode was released on a separate Tumbling - 2 Hours Special Edition DVD).

No sport is too obscure for a Japanese drama
Aired on TBS in spring 2010, Tumbling is an absolute treasure trove of Japanese zeroes-to-heroes school drama tropes. It's got everything you can expect from the genre, and some extra. There are obscure sports, school rivalries, feuding friends, teary speeches, inspirational teachers, yanki, ikemen, and last but certainly not least, shiny leotards! Rookies reformed delinquents with baseball. Tumbling does it with rhythmic gymnastics.

Yamamoto Yusuke leads the bad boy contingent of the club as a hot-headed, soft-hearted yanki who develops a passion for the most unlikely of sports - and he gets all his friends to join, too. Seto Koji provides the nerdy contrast as the mild-mannered team captain who has lots of heart but lacks direction. Expect the usual team infighting when the delinquents come lumbering into the ragtag underdog team, followed by the requisite training sequences, team bonding, and long-winded speeches a la Rookies. It's all previously treaded territory but nonetheless entertaining stuff for genre fans, made even more worthwhile by the gymnastics routines.

Men's rhythmic gymnastics lags far behind its women's counterpart in terms of recognition on the international level, but it's a different story in Japan, the country that has most embraced and developed the sport. Men's rhythmic gymnastics includes both individual apparatus events and a group competition in which teams of six gymnasts perform free-exercise floor routines, similar to the floor exercise in artistic gymnastics. The boys of Tumbling are in it for the group competition, and the cast really deserve some recognition for completely performing their own tumbling without stunt doubles.

Though the drama does employ some blatantly obvious editing to skirt around the skills too difficult for the actors to complete, by and large, the ikemen cast of rising stars display remarkable athletic prowess as they stumble and tumble their way through the series. Donning shiny pink leotards takes confidence, and getting six guys to flip in unison just takes plain old time and practice. Not since Waterboys has a girly sport seemed so - well, not manly, but physically demanding and unexpectedly impressive. AAA's Nishijima Takahiro, in particular, puts his dancing background to acrobatic use, and even performs a complete individual double ring routine at one point.

Whether it's the characters that shaped the cast or the cast that shaped the characters, either way there is some obvious fan service typecasting at work. Daito Shunsuke keeps his Crows Zero hair and cool exterior, and Miura Shohei looks like he just walked over from the set of Gokusen 3, which is just as well since Tumbling has its share of Gokusen-style alley scuffles and warehouse brawls. Yanagishita Tomo's character also gets a surprising arc that is not so surprising to anyone who's watched his most representative works. Joining the supporting characters are EXILE's Akira, playing against type as the wimpish, inspirational teacher, and the always welcome Otsuke Nene as Yamamoto Yusuke's straight-talking mother. The deep supporting cast benefits the drama greatly as Yamamoto Yusuke and Seto Koji don't yet entirely convince as leading men. In a team setting, however, they balance out fine with the rest of the cast, especially when they're tumbling around in shiny leotards.

Best J drama ever!!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Well I have now watched the entire series of Tumbling and I have only one word to describe it…. Stunning!!!

Each episode focuses on a different character, and the personal struggles they face be it poverty, death, homosexuality, friendships, family… to name but a few. As such the series, despite having fantastic comedy moments, manages to tackle to serious issues that affect young adults… not only in modern Japan but on a global scale. In fact I don’t think there was a single episode that didn’t have me in fits of laughter at one moment and the floods of tears the next!!!!

The acting (particularly from Yusuke Yamamoto and Seto Koji) is outstanding and is far above the standard you may expect from TV. And you can really feel that this group of actors had a strong bond that is so evident on screen. Considering that none of the leads are professional gymnasts the ’tumbling’ itself was breathtaking. Okay so possibly there may have been a few stunt doubles… I’m not sure… but it looks as though it is the actors actually doing the routine and if this is true I take my hat off to them!!!!

The one thing to note is that I watched this series online, so as to the specifics of this box set I can’t say anything….. it’s just a pity that eng subs aren’t included as I definitely would have brought a copy!!!

To date Tumbling is my all time favourite Japanese drama, the storyline and acting puts it miles ahead other dramas I have watched recently. My only complaint….. I wish it was longer!!!!

Stretching and Sweating Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
Okay so I have only watched one episode on mysoju but already this series is absolutely fantastic!!!! 2010 certainly seems to be the comeback year for J-Drama what with the equally brilliant yankee-kun to megame chan also being shown. Tumbling is certainly another drama that deserves recognition.

In the vein of Waterboys and Swing Girls it follows a somewhat unsuccessful group of Male Rhythmic Gymnastic competitors. Although they never have enougth members to enter any competitions and they are always battling against the girl's team for practice space their luck suddenly changes when Yankee Wataru joins the team. A combination of trying to impress the new girl and trying not to displease his mom Wataru half-heartly attempts the srict regime of the tumbling profession.... or tamborine as he likes to call it!!!!! But after witnessing the determination of the team's leader Yuta (played by heartthrob Seto Koji from the Koizora TV Drama) he soon puts his heart into the perfomance not for the sake of the girl or his mother but for himself. Of course in the first episode good intentions don't always mean high points!!!!

Even after one episode I was immediately gripped by the storyline and the characters and I am sure the rest of the series will not dissapoint. There are so many dramas about Yankee's trying to change their ways but this one has a edge for me. Fantastically acted and already showing some amazing tumbling routines I can't wait to watch the rest!!!So if you are a Waterboys// Stick It fan, gymnast enthusist or just enjoy the thrill of Japanese boys stretching and sweating Tumbling is for you!!!!
