Major 2nd follows a new generation of baseball players, with its focus on Goro’s son, Shigeno. And now, NHK has announced that Takuya Mitsuda’s Major 2nd baseball manga is getting a second TV anime series!

According to the announcement, the anime will premiere in April 2020. Unfortunately, they did not elaborate on any further details, such as its title, staff, or cast. It is not even clear if this second anime will be a sequel/ second season.

The manga inspired the first TV anime adaptation last year. Here is how Crunchyroll describes the anime’s story in English:

Shigeno Daigo is an elementary school student whose father, Goro, is a professional baseball player. Inspired by his father, who was once a Major League player, Daigo started playing baseball with the Mifune Dolphins, a youth league team. He was unable to live up to the expectations of being the son of a professional, however, and quit baseball after less than a year. Then, in the spring of his sixth-grade year, Daigo’s school welcomes a transfer student who’s just returned from America. The transfer student is Sato Hikaru, and it turns out his father is Sato Toshiya, a former Major League player and Goro’s close friend. The fate of these two young men begins to move forward!
