Having finished high school, Gorou Honda sets his sights on becoming a professional baseball player. His dreams are much more ambitious than becoming a Japanese Baseball League player, so he instead decides to move to the birthplace of his beloved sport, America, in order to play in the Major League.

However, Gorou finds that the Major League players are much faster, stronger, and more driven than he is. Nonetheless, he is eager to catch up with them. In order to do so, Gorou must first conquer the ranks of the Minor League, where numerous skilled players compete in the grueling rise to the Majors.

Gorou learns that he will have to adapt to the stark differences of American culture and push himself to new extremes as his race to join the Major League begins.

“Follow your dreams, as it takes all for it”

Once again another great season of major has been made with another story to begin with. A well made anime with a little comedy and drama on it. You may look at this season as an appetizer like the 1st and 2nd season because of the story hanging at the end of it.

Most of the episodes are like a tale that gives some entertainment but the point is that some of them are an annoyance with the main plot that decreases the enjoyment of it.


Just like the first impression about it, I’m a bit upset that read more

One sport that I have never had a particular enjoyment for is baseball. Growing up in the United States usually equates to someone loving America's past time and with the help of Major it might have worked. Major is split up into 6 different seasons and each one has a different tone and way of progressing the story. It is common to hear that Major Season 1 and Major Season 3 are the favorites but Season 4 is usually left out.

Story: 7/10

The previous installments of Major involves Goro, our baseball protagonist, trying to climb many hurdles of challenges that read more

I have not seen many episodes since it just started but you can just tell its a anime not to be taken lightly. Straight away the similarities to the previous seasons are apparent and the quality is nothing but excelled.

The story brings you in straight away slowly relieving your expectations from the previous season. Goro arrives in America seeking entrance into the majors and the expected hardships of his journey are revealed. The progression seems adequately stable and it leaves you wanting more.

As long as it looks somewhat appealing and clearly distinguished I'm not really bothered by the art. However I can confidently say read more

The best sport anime i have ever seen.
The best seasons are in my opinion 2 and 4.
One reason is that they both have good openings.
I like fourth season because it has a complete change in characters and other good thing is that he's finally playing in some other country than Japan.
Season 2 well i don't really know how it is good apart from the opening.
