I had a feeling this was coming soon, there was an animated CM last year that promoted the manga.

I was thinking of picking up the prequel anime series whenever I was in a sports anime mood and didn't just want to rewatch haikyuu!!

wasn't a fan of the pacing and repetitiveness of the first series. hopefully they make the second one more exciting and with more of a modern shounen feel.


What the fuck they literally take it from his childhood to his adulthood what is your issue with the pacing

After watching Cross Game I tried to move on to Major but gave up very early. At this point all I remember is boredom and that it didn't click at all. Unless it's possible to watch new anime without knowledge of the original series I doubt I'll go back to this franchise.

Sometimes Is like to watch an Ashita no Joe + Baseball mix, you can feel Joe Yabuki vibes from Goro.

Yo bit of an error in the writing of the article.

>The manga is a prequel of Major

>Major 2nd features Daigo, son of first work's main character Gorou.

The manga that features the main character of the original series son is a prequel of the original series.

I'm in the same boat. Guess I'll just have to take it one series at a time.
