We learned last week that the Major 2nd manga series from Takuya Mitsuda that began in 2015 was getting an anime adaptation. Now word is coming through an early look at this week’s Weekly Shounen Sunday magazine that the series is being planned for a spring 2018 premiere in April on NHK E-TV when it does arrive. No production information itself has surfaced yet. The series has eleven volumes out as of this month for this incarnation.
That original series ran for sixteen years between 1994 and 2010 from Takuya Mitsuda where it produced seventy-eight volumes to its name and over fifty million copies sold. And, of course, a couple hundred anime episodes and a few films.
Plot concept: Daigo is born as the son of Gorou, a father who is too great. What path will Daigo, who is burdened with great expectations, take in baseball?
