Lions, Tigers, and Baseballs oh my!



Hey folks, do you like Baseball? Do you like Anime? Do you like Baseball Anime?

Well, you should. 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?

Interesting, I think your spot on with your analysis.  I have an aversion to watching anime dubbed, but I loved this anime so I'll refresh myself by watching it...dubbed.

Don't get me wrong I don't mind Big Windup, but to really liked watching Princess Nine a hole lot more.   
 
Why didn't Princess Nine get a second season.

Baccano was too sweet and too short.  Loved the characters and of note, the intro was da bomb!  Needs more trumpets!

Dig Deeper into Big Windup!

A boy named Mihashi Ren is dragged into his new high school's baseball club, even though he feels he's a lousy pitcher-- he had the position in middle school, but only due to his grandfather's influence as the school principal.
