There is hardly any other anime's as complete as Major. Putting aside that major has everything you could hope for in an anime- action, drama, comedy, plot, superb character development, romance, morals, perfect pacing, no inconsistencies, great soundtrack/visuals- it also was consistently good throughout the seasons. Each season brought something to the table, all the while continuing Goro's journey. The quality rarely falters. The OVA's were excellent too. By the end of the series you really feel that you have grown up with Goro, and that the characters are really part of your life.

I'm yet to watch H2 and Touch, but from the other ones, I enjoyed Ookiku Furikabutte the most. It's the most realistic baseball anime imo, with good characters and interesting matches. I also like Cross Game and Major, but they're really different. I think CG is more about romance than baseball and Major is a typical shounen show where the main character is fighting for his dream beating every obstacle in his way, no matter how unrealistic it is. They're both good shows, but not the best baseball shows imho.

I didn't really like One Outs since it was more about mind games than baseball, but it wasn't a bad show either. Taishou Yakyuu Musume was a really cute series with an interesting take on baseball, and while I enjoyed it pretty much, I wouldn't say it's mainly a baseball show either.

+1

Most of the people voted for One Outs because they haven't seen the others.

As a baseball show, Ookiku easily stands on the top, no contest actually.

Don't really see why people are so impressed with the psychological aspects of one outs. It's completely unbelievable and you can't use mind tricks like that, especially on someone you don't know.
Also they say several times that he isn't a fast nor technical pitcher, all he does is throw slow straight fastballs and yet these professional players can't even hit that. I can see that he can fool a couple of them, but far from all.

Obviously because it looked cool.

My first baseball anime was Major, and it got me hooked right from the start, that drama in the first 6 episodes, Goro going into little league, growing up, and joining major league, it's an awesome ride, really, it got me hooked on baseball, but, as a baseball series, as in the games, it's severely lacking. What's more is, Goro normally doesn't match well with his catcher, and always ignore his catcher's sign, no sense of battery at all, dat broken comradery.

I've only seen One Outs and Ookiku, but I'd say Ookiku is my favorite so far. I like how much attention it paid attention to the characters as well as the subtle, smaller details like the soccer baseball mom's activities and what not. Also liked the slower pace of each game, got to really flesh them out and give them more depth. I walked into Ookiku Furikabutte knowing nothing about baseball and after long periods of looking up terms in between episode, I have to say it captivated me and I'm ready for more baseball anime because of it.

To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic." - Ezio Auditore, Assassin's Creed Revelations.

One Outs, because it isn't just about Baseball. It is so much more than that.
