    I know we made a thread of this way back in the past, or at least mentioned this series in another thread, but I searched a few pages back and didn't find the original thread so I decided to make a new one. (No active sub)

    Synopsis from ANN

    Shigeharu Honda is a Major Leauge batter on the rise. His son Goro is a Little League pitcher who one day hopes to follow in his father's footsteps. Momoko Hoshino is Goro's schoolteacher, and the first woman Shigeharu has been interested in since the death of Goro's mother. The destines of these three individuals will become intertwined as father and son experience both heartbreak and triumph on the baseball diamond. But when an unspeakable tragedy visits the family, it will take everything they have to pick up the pieces and reclaim their dreams.


    This is one of the best sports animes out there. Comparitivly along the lines of HNI (Hajime No Ippo also my all time fav sports anime) they are both adapted from manga, and both follow the story of a main character who has the one single desire to prove himself to be the best. The story is pretty touching with tragedies appearing forcing main character to overcome them to keep pursuing his dream.
    Whereas in HNI the main characters mottos is "I want to know what it is like to be strong" Major's main character Honda Goro's motto is more along the lines of "I define being the best by competing against the best." This creates alot of heated situations a, a great story, and good rivalries. As the story progresses you'll also love the side characters who share his dream of being the best and use that to fuel their desires of bettering themselves. All in all its a pretty good series and I'd rate it an 8.5/10

    Major has 2 seasons
    S1: 26 episodes
    S2: another 26 up to episode 52.

    Both seasons are up on my server, feel free to enjoy :)

    Fiction

    In the popular manga Major the hero's father Honda Shigeharu gains his fame as a great pitcher (for the fictional team "Yokohama Blue Oceans") by striking Matsui out. After being demoted to the minors he makes his dream to come back to the majors and strike Matsui out again, but he is injured before achieving that goal. Not giving up, he returns to the majors as a batter and after his team is losing because of homerun by Matsui, he slams a home run right on his first at bat in the majors.

    there's a bit of romance on Honda Goro's end. A little middleschool crush, it develops more in the 2nd season though.
