Big Windup! Second Season Coming Next Spring
Posted December 22, 2009on:
Are you ready for more dramatic baseball with mildly homo-erotic undertones? If so, you’re in luck, because the popular Big Windup! (AKA Ookiku Furikabutte) series is coming back for a second run next year, as announced by the official website today.
I never really got into the show my self; I can only handle one baseball show at a time, and Cross Game by the legendary Adachi Mitsuru has occupied that space for years. However, I highly recommend it as a nice little entryway into the world of Japanese baseball/youth dramas. It makes baseball stories especially accessible to girls, which is a pretty impressive feat.
