Synopsis:

Goro is back, and just in time to revive the struggling East Mifune Middle School baseball team! After four years, none could be happier to see him than his old friends Komori, Sawamura and Shimizu, but having grown older and taken different paths, baseball is no longer the bond it used to be. Add to that tournaments, bullies both on and off the pitch, and the ongoing threat of his friend-turned-rival Sato Toshiya, and it really looks like Goro has his work cut out for him. Still, his dream to go pro burns strong; if he must single-handedly build East Mifune from the ground up to realize that dream, then so be it. With new challenges and stronger opponents than ever before, let's hope Goro can keep his infamous cool long enough to strike 'em all into defeat!

After loving everything Major did, I cannot believe I almost missed out on Cross Game. Are you still twitching from that Post-Awesome Anime Depression? Miss that RAWR RAWR YEAH YEAH feeling and need a high to replace the one Major gave you? Then watch Cross Game. It's just as brilliant at developing nail-biting baseball games, combining it with heart-wrenching drama and marvellously involving character development for a thoroughly rousing experience.

Hajime no Ippo

Hajime no Ippo

Ippo Makunouchi is a loser. He has no friends, he spends his free time helping his mom with work, and he's constantly being beaten up by bullies.

Soon, Ippo turns his life around with a passion for the newly discovered sport, but his new lifestyle is far from easy! Before he can even dream of becoming champion, he'll have to overcome a slew of fierce rivals and learn what 'dedication' really means.

So you're watching Major and you think you've tasted the best that sports anime can offer? Think again! If you love Major, then Hajime no Ippo is a must-watch. With inspiring protagonists, tragic backgrounds, and an action-packed plot that never fails to give and is free of filler, you'll find Hajime no Ippo as gratifying (if not more so) as Major.

Aggresive, stupid, cocky, genius player as main character? Checked. His team geting influenced by his reckless style of playing, while he slowly learns to cooperate with them? Checked. Short-haired tomboyish girl who slowly develops feelings for the idiot? Checked (hell they even look practically the same). Now it all depends if you want it served in Baseball style, or in Soccer style - thats really all the difference.

One Outs

One Outs

Kojima is a baseball legend. As the superstar cleanup hitter for the Lycaons, he won himself many awards including rookie of the year seven times; but there's one title he never acquired: champion. In an attempt to find that special something Kojima feels he's missing inside, he opens a training camp in Okinawa. There, through a series of events, Kojima is introduced to a high stakes game dominated by the talented Toua Tokuchi, and subsequently loses a fortune. However, Kojima finally defeats Toua and due to their agreement, he enlists him to join the now poorly-ranked Lycaons - but Toua demands a high price: instead of a salary, he will receive five million yen for each out, and lose fifty million yen for each point lost. With a bad attitude and prodigal skills, Toua will help transform the Lycaons into winners once more.

You should definitely try One Outs next if you really like Major. One Outs has a fantastic protagonist as memorable and engaging as Goro. Except Toua Tokuchi is the complete opposite to Goro in that he's cynical, dark, and totally comfortable using sneaky methods to win. How he does this, though, is just as AWESOME as Goro at his most kick-arse. In short, One Outs is what you would get if you crossed Major with Death Note, and I think that should be recommendation enough.

Touch

Touch

Twins Kazuya and Tatsuya, and their neighbor Minami have played together since they were children and built an unbreakable bond. But with puberty, the twins realized something: Minami is a girl, and three is a crowd. As the trio tries to preserve their relationship, Kazuya's pledge to make Minami's dream come true by taking her to Koshien with his baseball pitching skills makes the slackerish Tatsuya wonder about himself, and his own goals. But Minami has another dream she wants fulfilled, and as the twins continue to push themselves, with Minami in the middle, a life-changing tragedy leads one twin down a path he once never would've considered...

If you like baseball, Touch is a heartwarming baseball story that has its share of baseball games. Touch does not have the same type of characters, though. Neither does it focus as much on the games. Nevertheless, it does have a strong emphasis on baseball.
