Big Windup (which is totally available here) was a unfortunately addicting shonen that taught us all about how awesome even high school level baseball can be. On top of that, the FUNimation dub/localization was really spot on.
My only problem with the first season was namely, just that it ended. However, this morning news of a second season has crossed my desk. Announced as an additional slip in the latest volume, the series will have a second season of the animated series some time in 2010, and will be worked on once again by A-1 pictures.
Note: The series original aired in mid 2007, so it'll be around 3 years between seasons. That gives us hopes for season 2 of Skip Beat, right?
