Well the anime is so far great, and it's a shame that the manga translations aren't even further. At the rate it's going the animation is going to get much further then the manga translations. Still one of the best sports animes / mangas out theire, Goro has to be one of the most imba protaganists I ever saw. Tho they should nerf his injuries.

Doesn't make much sense though, since vol 3 through vol 32 is missing.

[edit by mod, Warning: Possible spoiler]
forget captain tsubasa, touch, slam dunk, hajime no ippo and any other sporsts manga, cause major is the best overall sports manga you can ever find. This is one manga where they focus on character growth, not only physically but mentally. Starting from the age of 6 until 20s, you travel with the main character as he goes through turbulent and emotional moments throughout his journey to become a pro baseball player. In the much much later parts of the manga, you'll even see him going to America to play in the majors.

This anime got me into baseball though i do think your right it starts off when hes a kid and thats good and all, great for a back story and explaining who he is and how he got there but its not something that will hook you right away, i started with the anime with season 2, then i went back and watched season 1 when he was a kid. The manga at least the fansub just isnt far enough into it to truly grab peoples eye. But its great none the less

This manga is very good, except for the first issues based on the childhood of Goro, but at middle school and high school period, this is just becoming too good.
Story line is good, you have all basic elements like a sad past, a strong spirited hero, some rivals appearing on the way, real challenges. You don't need to like baseball to really enjoy this manga. So I give a 9/10 rating based on the v25 to 58.

If you like this one, try H2 from mitsuru Adachi, another great baseball story, with a little more romance and comedy
