The staff on the television anime of Takuya Mitsuda's Major 2nd baseball manga revealed the anime's visual on Thursday. The visual shows Goro the protagonist of the original Major manga, with his son Daigo, the protagonist of Major 2nd.
The anime will premiere on NHK E-TV in April 2018.
Mitsuda launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in March 2015 as the first new installment in the manga series in five years. Shogakukan published the manga's 11th compiled book volume on Wednesday. The sequel manga inspired an animated commercial in December 2015.
The sequel series follows Daigo, the son of the protagonist of the first Major manga.
Mitsuda serialized Major in Weekly Shonen Sunday from 1994 until 2010. Shogakukan published 78 compiled book volumes for the series. The story begins when Goro Honda's father, a professional baseball player, dies in an accident. This gives him the motivation to try and become a pro baseball player himself.
