Most people don't know what it is, so we're lucky it was recorded at all, given that most people think it was just the two parts of the World Series added together with nothing new. Instead, it makes them into a coherent "movie" of sorts, and a great one.
I'm still hoping there will be some new MAJOR-related anime movie or something in the future. I know the series is neatly wrapped up at this point, but it's a sad prospect to think that the series is just completely over now. I shall forever miss Goro and the gang if it is to be so.
What?! Where did you find it? Could you send me a message about it, just to avoid legal issues?
I feel the same way, too. Maybe they could give us some update as to what happened with Goro after [spoiler]becoming a family man and going to the Japan major leagues[/spoiler]. And heck, I was even expecting an entire episode devoted to [spoiler]Goro and Kaoru's wedding[/spoiler], and how it becomes a reunion for many characters from previous seasons (since the manga showed a [spoiler]wedding picture[/spoiler] implying that to be the case).
They might even make it into a live-action movie, but I'm not sure if that would work at all, considering the fact that Goro's fastballs needs to be highlighted properly if they were to do so. Then again, the live-action Rurouni Kenshin movie was surprisingly good.
It's really sad that it's completely over already. It's a bittersweet feeling, to be honest. And after seeing that Shonen Sunday has already deleted its MAJOR website, and with Takuya Mitsuda being busy with his boxing manga, I feel that this is really it already. I will miss Goro and the gang, just like you. They have now become a significant part of my life. And with the age I'm in, Goro still continues to inspire me to rise to the dream stage.
