Baseball anime, Gurazeni, has brought a more realistic twist in terms of the lives of professional athletes. And now, the anime’s staff have revealed that the sports anime is getting a second season. According to the announcement, the second season will premiere in October 2018, which also means its part of the fall 2018 season.
The staff also revealed that the anime will be getting a couple of special guest seiyuu. Former baseball player Masahiro Yamamoto and comedian Yuki Iwai are these special guests. They also revealed that BS SKY PerfecTV will be airing the new season, with Studio DEEN once again animating the series. Here’s how Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Bonda Natsunosuke (26, single), is a left-handed relief pitcher for the professional baseball team, the Jingu Spiders. He became a pro right after high school and now in his 8th year makes 18 million yen a year, and is not what you’d call a “first rate player.” “I don’t know how many years I’ve got left to play after 30.” “Only a few can become coaches or commentators after they retire.” “Pro baseball players need to make their money while before they retire!” Despite the harsh realities, Bonda always repeats the same phrase: “There’s money buried in the grounds.”
