According to Weekly Shonen Sunday, a new OVA of manga "Major" was announced to be released in December. The World Series chapter, which was skipped in the TV series, will be animated. This OVA will be the final anime of Major.
I've always been a baseball fan and an anime fan but Major was what got me started on baseball anime which is a genre I really enjoy. I loved Major and its one of my favorite animes mainly because of the characters and the exciting and at times very dramatic and touching story. World Series is the perfect ending to a great anime, wrapping everything up in the best way possible. There is nothing more in the story to be explored, and nothing more for major to accomplish. this ends it so satisfyingly I would be disappointed if they attempted to continue major any further, it has been finished perfectly and let it stay that way.read more
Okay I will start with a spoiler tag do nt read this review because it will contain massive spoilers. read at your own peril. But honestly if you're looking at this page and you haven't seen the six full seasons of Major yet you're either way too curious or don't mind spoilers but as they say curiosity will gt you killed. But enough with the lame jokes lets get down to the rant. This will contain a full she's worth of frustration not by the ending but the steps to get there. Ive wanted Toshi and Goro on the same team since like the first season and I k ow even thu the time skip happened at tend of the sixth season in all honesty I'm really more upset with he composition of the sixth season and how the time skip was used as a means to show a story that was too cookie cutter for my taste because it's not what Goro was ever about in the first place. I know how the story was progressi but the sixth season had way too much filler and bullshit Goro being a lose, I don't mind him losing but watching the show became painful to watch and I appreciate the rounded character development but if you're going to go that far how do you go to a time skip that cuts out what this show has made its living on: the work to get there. You it's great he wins with Toshi and strikes it junior hurray but it never really feels like a completesd victory because I never felt the struggles to et there they've set this massive stage and just because they have to bring Toshi they put him there it makes me think that Goro could never really do anything on his own I know he's only. Rookie but they made it seem like the team that had pulled together couldn't do hit and only could do it when they needed it for a plot ending I want to know how many times they were in the world series I want to see mayamura struggle for an episode I mean actually struggle mind you. Also it felt like the build up of Goro should've taken a better direction at the end because I could see the ending of the anime in my mind about when the third season heated up that he would go down like that but it always felt like he was on the path someone set for him he was always following people even in the next ova message I understand what they did with the ending but Goro was the same person his father was but better. Are you kidding me, if you're gonna give me a half baked ending like this I'd rather you show off him making the Majors but they had to raise the bar for him only to have him pitch for the Blue oceans in Japan. Even though it was well done it just doesn't sit rgiht with me the way this show ended. I want to give this show an 8 but I can't bring myself to because of the rushed ending that ending was really nothing more than fan servic and to me an ending that feels like a filler episode is worth watching but this show fell out of my top 5 anime. Sorry guys of you don't agree but I can only give it a 5. Up to season 5.3 was a masterpiece but that rushed ending to this conclusion. The only thing I give a pass on is the romance in the time skip only because Goros so dense that trying to fill that in would take a new show let alone a season. read more
