The story of Major follows the life of Goro Honda, from kindergarten to being a professional baseball player, seeking and overcoming tremendous challenges.
As far as i know this might probably be the only or one of the very few manga that you can actually follow a character from 5 years old to high school to adulthood to the Major League(as you could see by the manga name) he becomes in the end a man with his own family and children, the way we follow Goro was truly a one of a kind experience, in the end it feels like you gained friends someone you will
never forget at least that's how it was for me, one if not the best sports manga out there.
I'm a slow reader, i'm lazy when it's about reading something but i finished the manga in 12 days which for me is truly fast, even after watching the anime 2 times i still got addicted to the manga to the point i didn't want to stop reading, the drama of real life tragedies, the willpower to keep going, the amazing battles between athletes, despair, happiness, you get everything you can think of in this manga so as you can see the story is just amazingly perfect.
The Art is very solid and pleasing to see, does get a little sloppy in the first volumes at certain times, however, it is well done during important parts, especially during games with amazing detail that you can even see the bat pieces when it breaks, and in the last volumes the art is just perfect, characters are also very well draw.
Characters, the character development that Major has is a lot of focus on developing relationships within the team, is family and how problems arise and are solved among them. The characters are all very likable, developed with past, present and future and its fun to watch them interact with each other, there are also a few issues which come up within Goro's family and it shows how he as a child, handles them. I found certain scenes to be quite touching and others to be abuse and bulling of Goro, for real the poor guy can't catch a break.
So Overall I enjoyed this so much, it's my favorite sports manga and anime and everything that may become in the future, i'm a FANBOY :P, i totally recommend this, or better saying i totally recommend people to force everyone else to read/watch this one way or another, this is definitely that one manga everyone should read.
