At Ina Middle School, the boys’ Ping Pong Club is seen as more of a joking matter than something worth the school's budget. It doesn't help that they are constantly being outdone by the girls' team and their fiery-tempered coach, as well the fact that most of the boys on the team care more about their ding dongs than their ping pongs! In a desperate attempt to motivate the team, the boys' coach introduces a hot-bodied female manager, who might just bring a sexual tension to the team that could work to their advantage. But can these hopeless boys improve their game enough to emerge victorious at the upcoming tournament and win the prize she's willing to give?

It is difficult to find a show where the primary objective is to make the viewer laugh and the show does not run out of steam, or try to introduce some serious elements after the first couple of episodes. These are two of those shows. Gross out gags abound in both shows. Although both shows are considered ecchi, when it comes to the level of perversion Ping Pong Club makes Mitsudomoe look like Mr. Rogers. But that's not to say that Mitsudomoe is acceptable for younger audiences, just not as relentlessly tasteless as Ping Pong Club. Both very funny shows, though.
Seeking a cure for his depraved masochism, Taro Sado approaches the Second Volunteer Club on the recommendation of his best friend, Tatsukichi. There he finds the help of the violent but kind Mio Isurugi who promises to beat the masochism out of him by any means necessary. Will Taro be able to survive the assaults of this upperclassman, the overly-affectionate attentions of his mother and sister, and still lead a normal school life? Unlikely. But will he get over his perverse fetish? He sure hopes so.
The main thing Ping Pong Club and MM have in common is shameless, outrageous, perverse comedy. Both shows are about clubs that are loaded with bizarre people. MM is somewhat more tame than Ping Pong Club and actually has some slightly serious elements to it, not to say that MM is a serious show. Both of these shows are really funny if you are not easily offended. If you like the humor in MM then Ping Pong Club is worth a try and vice versa.
