Baseball Anime ‘Major’s’ Special Edition Promo Streamed

Disney XD Japan is currently streaming a promotional video for the two-part MAJOR: World Series Hen – Yume no Shunkan e video anime series.
The video anime with 15 minutes of previously-unreleased footage will air on the channel on June 17 at 4:00 p.m. and then again at 10:00 p.m. The end of the below video contains some of that unreleased footage.

The station will also air the 2008 Major: Yūjō no Winning Shot film on the same day at 12:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. The channel will additionally air selected episodes from the franchise‘s sixth television anime series on the same day.

The OVA adapted the previously-unanimated World Series arc and the story’s illusive final matchup and features the return of the “Golden Battery” in America. The OVA project originally shipped in December and January bundled with a special compiled book volume (tankōbon) of the manga.

Takuya Mitsuda‘s manga ended in July of 2010 after a 16-year run. The story follows Gorō, the son of a major league batter who dreams of making it big himself. The manga began in the magazine in late 1994.

The manga inspired its first television anime series in 2004, and the sixth television anime series launched in 2010. The 78th and (at the time) final limited-edition manga volume shipped in December 2010 with a special OVA.
