Nice :D
Hopefull he will be different enough from his father, I can already feel the drama coming, a kid who tries to follow his father footsteps but isn't as talented as he was or something like that

I'm honestly not even sure how to feel about this. The 6 season journey in the anime was incredible but the story is complete and nothing leaves me feeling more disappointed than a perfect ending being sullied by a poor continuation. I'll keep my eyes out for it but I don't think I need it.

As a big Major fan this is probably a terrible idea. The series was one of the few that felt complete and did not need anything more. I guess after Buyuden got cancelled the author just decided he'd just fall back on Major?

This honestly excited the crud outta me!! However, as much as I LOVED Goro as a main lead, his story is over, it ended perfectly, so it should probably be about another character.
That being said, I don't think I could watch it if Goro wasn't the lead character. Hahaha! I guess I'll just have to see what happens
