The very first scene seen in episode 01 offers enormous emotional depth when Daigo talks about his father and tells about his dreams in front of the class. The empty baseball fields at sunset work as the perfect, powerful backdrop while a soundtracks from the original series starts playing. The inability to meet the expectations set for him and the lack of natural talent required to follow his father's footsteps are the very core of his character. But he is not his father. It's time for him to be himself.

Right at the outset, let me say this. Its major, but don't expect the first season of major here in '2nd'. And oh, spoilers in the review.

TL;DR - Its a great anime, but if you hold high expectations of this like i did, then maybe you might be slightly disappointed. However, it's still worth the watch and i have high expectations of subsequent seasons. If you're a fan of Major, definitely go ahead and watch. If you like sports anime in general, give it a chance, see if you like it. I'm sure subsequent seasons will be really good and this might be important for read more

Honestly didn't like the first couple episodes, but it brought me in the same way the original Major did.

The setting/premise for the series was perfect.

Gotta admit the character growth was larger than i expected. It brought tragedy in like how the original series did, which I didn't think it would. I liked how they played that.

It made us focus on other characters problems, which again followed the original series.

I didn't like how when they pitched or hit, there were sparkles. Bad animation choice.

But that final episode was amazing. Brought in all the feels.

Overall great series if you watched the original one. And if you're new read more

What if you love something so much, that it becomes painfull to see everyone around you being better? Will you throw away everything just to not suffer anymore?
Life's not fair, everyone s born with a gift but they desire things that cant achieve easily, that's why we struggle to become better persons.

Before starting the review I'm going to say that Major is one of my favorite series of all time, both manga and anime, so I'm very excited and happy about this sequel, it's a shame that not much people are into sport, but I could not care less, I love it and I hope read more
