The story is about Ogi Shunsuke, a baseball player who retire after loosing his game, but deep down inside he still have a dream to stand in Giant batterbox.
So a year after he decide to become a pro again, but he think he have to throw his life so he can only concentrate on baseball. He broke up with his fiancee, unfortunately that night he struck by lightning and die. He meet with Tanaka (an angel), and right before Tanaka take him to heaven the Ministry of death announce that there some kind of mistake, Ogi Shunsuke not suppose to die, but he also can't go back to his own body, because it already cremated. So Tanaka help him to find a new body, Ogi wants to have a perfect body but they run out of time, so Ogi take Asahina takaya's body. Other might see Asahina but inside is Ogi's soul.
What Ogi dont know that Asahina not just dont have a muscle, but he also a bad person. The situation just get worse when Hina shows-up, she is Asahina's illegal child.
As Ogi try to chase his dream through Asahina's body, he also try to fix Asahina problems with other people, He re-created Asahina's company, build a nice relationship with Hina.

The plot of this dorama is great, but the ending kinda confusing me, still this dorama is worth watching

This drama is one hell of a roller coaster ride again.. i definitely LOVE the plot.. i cant believe they can make a nice script will all of the new drama that is airing.. it's very difficult.. Takashi Sorimachi did a BRILLIANT job again on his character.. the ending is very sad yet happy.. yeah i know confusing.. but will capture your heart totally.. i cant count it anymore how many Sorimachi drama which he started at made me cry.. including this one. Samuel Samaniego of Quezon City, Philippines.

Not a bad show, but nothing unforgettable either. I personally found it a little boring but the script only focused on a few obstacles so it went quickly. Sorimachi was excellent, though his talents could have been challenged more.

A good drama but a little less entertaining then some of Sorimachi's other dramas.

I'm not sure what my expectations were when watching this drama - Sorimachi Takeshi is an excellent actor and he was the first actor I've seen in a Jdrama (GTO). However, this series is the same old same old Sorimachi Takeshi - the inspirational, loud, and sometimes proves his point through aggressive means type Sorimachi Takeshi. Anyway, the premise of the series is definitely much more original than most of the dramas I've seen lately.

"Dream Again" has a strong cast and a great idea, but sadly that's all. The story begins to drag after a few episodes and the character, Ogi Shunsuke, seemed very unrealistic. The lines were very contrived and the other characters only seemed to detract from what little was positive about the show. Hopefully Sorimachi Takeshi will try a different role next time around.

Took me a long time to finally get started with this dorama. It wasn't because I didn't want to see it, but because I was afraid that it was just more or less a remake of Wonderful Life (Which I loved!). But I was wrong - the 2 doramas are very different. Sorimachi is a great actor as always and Kato Ai and Shida Mirai do a great job too.
The story is quite different from anything I've seen before, the pace is good and it's interesting through the whole dorama.

I can't help comparing Wonderful Life and Dream Again in my head since they both are with Sorimachi and they're both about baseball. I'm gonna have to say that this one's good, but Wonderful Life is just a bit better.

Asahina!!!.. dont give up!!!.. [Rating: 10/10]
i cant believe they can make a nice script will all of the new drama that is airing.. it's very difficult.. (actually it's a remake from 2 American movies.) "Heaven Can Wait" (1978)
Starring: Warren Beatty as a football player who dies, which actually was a remake of: "Here Comes Mr. Jordan" (1941) Starring: Robert Montgomery, poised to be the next heavyweight boxing champ until a angel pulls him from an impending plane crash and sends him to heaven before his time. Both play th sax!

u know wot?? this was a good watch and normally i dont really like Sorimachi Takashi (dont ask me why) but in this case he was brilliant as he played the role of a baseball player who died in an accident leaving his girlfriend (Kato Ai) behind but ended up taking over another person`s body who was also about to die. So he ends up being a different person but witht he memories and conscience of who he actually is. A lot of drama develops from here onwards. Not a heavy watch so quite good and Kato Ai is beautiful as always and brilliant!

I'm still wondering. Is it the maturing charisma of Sorimachi or the good script that is keeping me glued to this drama? Sorimachi isn't aging any faster than his wife yet he graduating from a daddy of a three year old (Hotman) to a 12yr old ! It's really a bonus to have the young actress who acted in "14yr old mother" in this drama - very matured acting. Funny, those with a crown of white hair are the ones who try to act cute ! i love the theme song

surprisingly good. it's not as predictable as some of the comments here claim. the ending is sweet albeit implausible but so is the entire premise. i've watched takashi sorimachi before but this is the first dorama i've finished.he is quite charismatic but the revelation for me was shida mirai..she never fails to surprise. watched this show in one sitting, which surprised me.
7. Comments by Patazilla [Rating: 8/10]
Uhm, what to say... I liked the dorama, the characters and the story is really enjoyable. Sadly, I can't really cope with the ending... :/ [SPOILER] I'm the last person who doesn't like happy endings, but this felt totally unreal. Don't like it, in no way... [/SPOILER] But apart from that it really is a nice dorama and I'd therefore recommend watching. :3

Interesting story, Takashi sorimachi, Kodama Kiyoshi and Shida mirai always make me laugh. Weird ending, i cried in the middle but i think i waste my tears because there is fake ending, shit!!.. But i respect an ending like that. Unique!!
Soundtrack: Aoku Yasashiku [Kobukuro] : 8

Dream again?�@Baseball again? Girlfriend, Daughters, Portfolio Management, Corporate Takeover, should be fun though, yet the script is TERRIBLE ! ! ! When the strength of a show is the protagonist's wardrobe and the title song, you know how good the show is. dropped @ ep6
10. Comments by Ezalor [Rating: 7/10]
Average Dorama with great cast. Starts good but loses its drive. Business and daughter stories are good, but the love story gets annoying from the middle. The end was very predictable, but the (unpredictable) very last "mega happy end" was somehow too unreeasonable.

An excellent series....Baseball story which wasn't really about baseball..but about a baseball player who has to die in order for him to grow as a human being...a drama about doing the right thing, gambatte, dreams, etc...........excellent cast and music....

Sorimachi Takashi's acting is subalashi!!
Kato Ai is so pretty in Dream Again. She's the type of girl you really want to protect her all the time.
This drama is getting passionate and may make you filled with tears from episode 6.....

It was actually more then I expected from this drama and that's also maybe why I rated it so high. Anyways, this drama wasn't about the superstition, but to give you more of a life listen of some sort...I think

Good story... Good acting.. Pretty addictive... But really bad ending.. Wished they will show what he did after joining giants rather than reset everyting like dat... [SPOILER]

Ai Kato was sooooo cute in this. That said, this was a pretty addictive drama for me. Sorimachi gave a great performance and the story kept me hooked.

A heartwarming drama with a kind of strange premise. It was pretty good, just a bit frustrating at points. Also kind of emotional. lol
18. Comments by Replicant [Rating: 8/10]
Good and warm drama, but the ending is a total joke. Though I liked the characters a lot, Takashi and Shida Mirai were really great.

I did skip most of the scenes that were too long but I liked it somewhat. Kato Ai should never ever play the role of an attorney.
