posted on 2016-07-13 14:30 EDT by Karen Ressler

To advertise the fifth compiled volume of Takuya Mitsuda's Major 2nd baseball manga, Shogakukan has posted an extended version of its Major 2nd animated commercial, which first debuted back in December. The commercial stars Mutsumi Tamura as Daigo Shigeno and Yūma Uchida as Hikaru Satō. Showtaro Morikubo narrates the ad.

Mitsuda launched the sequel manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday in March 2015 as the first new installment in his Major manga series in five years. Shogakukan published the manga's fifth compiled volume on Tuesday.

Mitsuda serialized Major in Weekly Shonen Sunday from 1994 until 2010. Shogakukan published 78 compiled book volumes for the series, which had 53 million copies in print.

The manga inspired its first television anime series in 2004, and the sixth television anime series ran in 2010. The manga also inspired an anime film titled Major: Yūjō no Winning Shot in 2008.
