Years ago, Saku moved away from his hometown, leaving behind his friend and tormentor Mihoshi. As a child, Mihoshi constantly forced the bookish and shy Saku to play and look at the stars; and now, as Saku moves back home to attend high school, he prays for a quiet school life free from her grasp. Unfortunately, Saku’s desires are quickly shattered as Mihoshi catches sight of him and convinces him to join the school’s astronomy club. Alongside Mihoshi, the other club members and Hime - another girl from Saku’s past who’s determined to win him over - Saku continues his dreadfully unordinary high school life with a grimace and positive attitude!

When Koushi was younger, he was betrothed to the daughter of his father’s rival: Momoko, the strongest bride in the world!

Now, all Koushi wants to do is live a normal life and become a great prosecutor… but with two martial artists to deal with, can he keep his path – and sanity – intact?
Sora no manimani is the thinking man's Sumomomo momomo. The're no action, the spunky female lead isn't begging for sex and I don't feel like I need a shower everytime I watch an episode. That also means that the famale characters have more personality and dimentions (2 more to be exact)
Besides, it's not like sumomomo momomo had particularly good action.
The year is 1925 and Japan is still a country with socially backwards views, particularly on women's rights. One young girl named Akiko Ogasawara decides to fight for equality in her own way - by forming a girls' baseball team! She soon enlists her good friend Koume Suzukawa, and it's now up to the two of them to put together a team of like-minded and spirited young ladies. Under the able and enthusiastic tutelage of English teacher Miss Garland, the girls will need to bond closely, learn well and practice hard if they are to stand their ground against boys' teams and show a misogynistic society exactly what they're made of... while having some fun in the process.
There is no loud and hyperactive girl like the lead from Sora no Manimani in TYM, but both shows are about a group of friends creating a club in school and both have some similar light romances in them.
