The Major series is one of the most complete journeys that I’ve seen in an anime series. Over 154 episodes in 6 seasons, 2 OVAs and a movie, you really get to experience every bump and victory along Goro’s incredible baseball career from when he is just a small child till he is an adult near the end of his career. This is tied with Touch as my second favorite baseball series ever created (Cross Game is first by a LARGE margin). Relationships spanning years upon years are constantly tested, challenged and renewed throughout and along with the riveting baseball action help define this as an instant classic. The Major series is a must-watch for all whether you like sports anime or not.
