I'm upset Baby Steps got cancelled. I really enjoyed the anime and knowing the manga got prematurely cut short is really sad. Really excellent career sports manga. I hope Katsuki manages to continue it someday or starts another series.

I have read baby steps way before anime started. Always patiently waiting for updates, read the raws and just hoping to read it fully in english one day. The end frightens me.. i still wonder.. it's been about 2 years.. will the author get to continue the story? Do they even want to?

Baby Steps is the best manga of all time, @ me

Damn, Kodansha really fucked Katsuki-san over. Apparently when Baby Steps got cancelled, it was still performing in the mid-ranges relative to other manga in the magazine and had good sales. She essentially got fired because Weekly Shonen wanted to change genres rather than because of the merit or popularity of the series. This is a gross injustice to the story, and we missed out on a potential Davis Cup and the long-awaited finale match with Ike Souji as a result. I hope she manages to get a sequel in some other magazine a la Prince of Tennis.

Love Baby Steps. Very realistic manga with a decent adaptation. Looking forward to what he might write next.

At last, a human-ist sports mangaka...
Thanks, Katsuki-san. I get the feeling a third season is just around the corner.

Baby Steps is so entertaining! I love the OP's and ED's too!

Baby Steps is a whole new take on the sports genre - highly realistic in terms of exponential growth due to the MC's natural talent, all-rounder + control play style, and analytical personality. Maruo is truly a hard-working genius and I can't wait to see where he goes!
