THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

Wow. I still can't believe it. I was expecting an anime on par with Hajime no Ippo, but Hajime no Ippo wasn't this depressing! Ugh...for making me tear up. Poor Goro.

I LOVe what they did here. Probably the best episode for any anime ever created. It made him look like he was going to survive, you stay all calm and happy, then BAMN he dies. The episode director needs to get payed a lot more for that one. Sure the manga-ka came up with it, but it takes perfect timing to pull that off.

Wow...

That, was so sad. I teared up immediately when Goro's face sunk, and he realized his dad had died like his mom had.

Oh man it was on a fast pace. I was hoping to at least have Kimura's dad for the whole season or at least HALF!

Damn he didn't even marry her completely yet :( It was getting so awesome so quick. Then it takes a flush down the toilet just as fast. Filler or not they could have easily let him stay alive with the concussion for at least 6 more stupid episodes.

DAMN DAMN DAMN! Isn't momoko allowed a few episodes of happiness :(

I expected more from Gibson, as far as I could tell Honda was the only Japanese player he actually respected, and I think hearing that would have meant a lot to Goro

I think the pace will probably slow down a little bit now that he's old enough to join little league.

I wonder if the name of the series means he'll be aiming for the MLB?

When I saw the episode title 'farewell' I thought he'd have to quit baseball, but I never thought he'd die. Poor Goro.

So sad, one of the few animes were I've cried. But the end shows that they are moving forward and that good things were happening.

I'm really happy I gave in and started watching this now :)

Saaad,couldn't help but cry. Reminds me of Cross Game,the way it starts off with a damned tragedy...Which,of course,doesn't make the story any less great but is super depressing.

This certainly was an unexpected turn of events. I knew things were too good for Honda and his son to be truth, but still, I never thought something like this would happen. Poor Goro, losing his parents when he's still a child.

I wonder what Gibson will do from now on, I'm looking forward for his character development.

Wow.

When I saw the episode was titled "Farewell", I kinda expected this. But it was still a shock.

I hope Gibson is gonna be revolutionizing baseball in JP, and coach Goro.

Kaaaaah, I just knew he would get hit and something bad would happen from the opening but this was just soooooo sad.... Ugh, saddest thing I've seen in quite awhile... Poor Goro, first losing his mother at the age of 4 and now his father at the age of 6...

holy fuck I probably tear up once in about 100 anime I see and not until towards the end of the series, but this anime.....

What doesn't make sense is that this anime is so damn predictable that there should be little to no psychological effect on me. Looks like I'm in for a long haul... how many season does this anime has? 9 now?

It's good to be alive.. (no disrespect to Honda-san) RIP

Not only did he die, but Goro was up for a few hours thinking he was asleep. Way too cruel for everyone.

What the hell how unrealistic can you get?! Helmets don't crack like that even if they do get hit! And even if they do crack they protect the head enough to not let THAT happen.That ticks me off a bit.

What a great start to an anime. The pacing wasn't perfect, but the story is still well told. For some reasons, it looks lke its gonna turn into a generic sport anime and never top this episode.I hope to be proved wrong.

Humm, that is tough to say. Nothing can top losing BOTH parents, but this is the best damn baseball animation of all time, so I think I can say that if you appreciate Goto as a character you will not be disappointed.

Been a while since an anime has made me teary eyed. Shigeharu was a great character too. I wish they had at least 1 episode of Shigeharu and Momoko happy together. This series definitely has me more hooked than it already did.

They should have brought him immediately to the hospital after the game for check up or have him stop playing during the game. I thought that is the standard procedure if there is an accident that affected the head especially if he went unconscious (like in basketball). I was surprised that he was still able to play in the previous episode despite that. **Sigh**, its sad. Somehow, the Ocean's management is partly to be blamed for not forcing him do to check up immediately! Grr.. i'm kinda sad and pissed off now..

Nah, in terms of "holy shit" level sadness (character death etc), the worse you'll see later is athletes injuries and some losing games here and there. But, it might be painful. But, it will be fun.

Flawless episode. Truly at a loss for words, it feels like I've just lost a dear friend.
