Ookiku Furikabutte: Natsu no Taikai Hen is the sequel, or the second season, of Ookiku Furikabutte. Of course, you will have to watch the first season before even thinking of trying to watch the sequel. If you liked the first season, then you will definitely enjoy this as well. It's a perfect continuation with the same story and characters, and not much changed, except for a few things. For example, since the two seasons were shown three years apart, one of the notable improvements is the art.

Also, I disagree with other reviewers: you do not need to be a baseball fan to enjoy this read more

"Ookiku Furikabutte: Natsu no Taikai-hen" or "The Big Windup: Summer Tournament Chapter" is the sequel to "Ookiku Furikabutte". Continuing from the first series, Nishura High plays in the National High School Baseball Championship's prefectural qualifiers in hopes of reaching the Koushien.

As with the first series, this is only for baseball lovers since at least 80% of the screen time is either baseball game or people talking about baseball. If you can't sit through an entire baseball game, this is not a series for you. Watch "Cross Game" or "One Outs" instead.


STORY: 8/10

I watched both anime and both have almost similar traits in almost all aspects of baseball , except the them , where Ookiku focused tends to realistic-friendship wise , and Daiya no ace more to individuals term. However , if you like Daiya No Ace , I am sure you would also interested in Ookiku Natsu N.T.H.(theres a prequel too)
Its a boxing anime but similar this anime is about a boy that went from being bullied everyday to becoming one of best boxers.
