The 2nd 2016 issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine announced on Wednesday that Takuya Mitsuda's Major 2nd sequel baseball manga will receive an anime commercial that will premiere in Shogakukan's Web Sunday site.

The magazine also notes that the manga has over 1.5 million copies in print.

Mitsuda launched the manga in Weekly Shonen Sunday on March 11 as the first new installment in the manga series in five years. Shogakukan published the manga's second compiled book volume on September 18, and will publish the third volume on Saturday.
