The manga series then ended in 2014, but the creators launched the Gurazeni: Tokyo Dome-hen sequel manga that same year.
The manga won the best general manga award in the 37th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2013.
It also ranked #2 on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! guidebook’s 2012 list, and earned a nomination in the 5th Manga Taisho Awards.
This year’s 17th issue of Kodansha’s Morning magazine is announcing on Thursday that a television anime adaptation of Yūji Moritaka and Keiji Adachi’s baseball manga Gurazeni has been green-lit for next year.
