For those you who haven’t seen the anime, “Big WindUP”, you are missing some fun, heartfelt, male bonding over the greatest game in the World, BASEBALL! I am not going to give anything away, but it is fun and I would recommend for Anime on Demand. :stuck_out_tongue:


When you make a new thread for an anime, please make the first post like this ^.

Also, you recommended it for Anime on Demand, while that might be nice, “Big Windup!” is owned by another company. That’s also why this thread was moved to this forum ‘Other Anime’ and not left in the ‘Anime Network Shows’ forum.

It’s always a learning experience around here. :cheer:

(Also, before making a new thread, it’s a good idea to do a search, in case there’s already a thread started.)

Thank you for the advice and the illustration and clip.

I have collection one of this, but never got around to grabbing collection 2. I’m debating on whether to try to grab it on ebay or Amazon, or just go for the SAVE collection (which is probably the cheapest route.) It’s sad that we likely won’t see Season 2 of this, unless Sentai or Nozomi steps in.
