In Season 2 of Major, Goro was transformed into an unstoppable monster. Someone who could hit and pitch amazingly. Someone who could single-handedly win a game against even the best schools. Obviously, this creates a bit of a problem for the plot. The show needed a way to keep things interesting, to make it so Goro didn't have things too easy.

In order to do this, Major implements two major storylines during season 3. The first one is very similar to season 1, as Goro is forced to essentially make a team from scratch, composed of baseball rookies. The second storyline is something I will leave read more

"No guts, No glory"

Well that's what I really enjoy about this anime. The main character in this anime really believes that putting all your effort to something you really like, definitely there's gonna be a good outcome without any grief.

As this anime goes to its third level (3rd season) all his effort from his childhood up to now went smoothly. The different about it from it's past season is that he will prove to everyone else that nothing will stop his dream and overcome the obstacles he will encounter.

The story is like a "do or die", it really excites me that whenever they're in read more

Anime review(part 1)

This review will have the first 3 seasons mainly.

Firstly, Major is essentially one of the most complete anime you can find, I will give a list of who can enjoy this anime, and you will see it really does cover a very broad spectrum of watchers.

The first episode of major was incredible, so incredible that I was literally hooked into a marathon. While one of the more well know drama VN/anime maker Jun Maeda requires at least 10 episodes to start the drama, this anime gets you into the drama in the first episode itself. By fifth episode you are literally reeling in read more

I'm not the best at writing reviews but if I don't write them, I'll never learn =P

If you are about to watch season 3 then I'm sure you have seen the other 2, otherwise why the hell are you here?!
Without season 1 you won't understand Goro and his family and without season 2 you won't understand the plot of this season for everything that happens here is a continuation of a conflict that started in previous season.

Ah! So you did watch them?

Then let us begin!

After season 2, this one might be disappointing for you and the reason is that we are going back to read more

Anime: Prince of Tennis
prince of tennis and major are very interesting animes since its center plot is about sports, and not just any sport, but the best sports in the world(tennis and baseball). if you want an inspiring anime with a lot of cute guys then you must try this. it will never let you down, every episode is very good, i must say its a masterpiece.

Anime: Eyeshield 21
Another Sports Anime. Major is all about Baseball and follows a boy from his childhood all the way beyond high school. While it IS a different sport, it has the same theme of "determination and drive" regardless of the opponent. Major is a bit more serious in tone than Eyeshield, but still has it's fun.
