Gurazeni Season 2 Airs on October 5, 2018


Gurazeni Season 1 Anime VisualIt’s time for this game of moneyball to step up to the mound… again!

Earlier today, the official Gurazeni: Money Pitch anime website updated with the show’s premiere schedule. The series will launch on October 5, at 22:30 (10:30PM JST) on BS Sky PerfecTV!.

The first season of Gurazeni: Money Pitch aired in the Spring 2018 broadcast season.

Ayumu Watanabe was tapped to direct Gurazeni at Studio DEEN, with Kenichi Ohnuki (Garzey’s Wing, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed) providing character designs. Hideo Takayashiki was in charge of series composition and writing the scripts.

Yūji Moritaka and illustrator Keiji Adachi’s Gurazeni manga kicked off in the pages of Kodansha’s Morning magazine in December 2010. The series ran through August 2014, and saw seventeen compiled volumes hit retailers.

An ongoing sequel series, titled Gurazeni: Tokyo Dome-hen (Gurazeni: Tokyo Dome Chapter) began in September 2014.

Gurazeni Season 1 Anime Visual Crunchyroll streamed the first season on their digital platform and describe the series as:

There’s money buried in the grounds.

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.”
“After some players retire, there are people who end up in a slump having to make a living around 1,000,000 yen a year.”
“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.”

Bonda goes up to the mound yet again today.

Yes, seeing dreams of money in those grounds, “Gurazeni!”

That Time I Saw Nagito Komaeda At Whole Foods

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
