What better time to dig into baseball manga and anime than October? Viz seems to agree with that, and are marking next week as somewhat of a “Cross Game Week” in celebration of the release of the manga’s first volume.
Series creator Mitsuru Adachi (Touch, H2) is well versed in telling interesting coming-of-age stories, and Cross Game mixes that nicely with the game of baseball. Viz’s publication of the manga hits store shelves on Tuesday, October 12, but the party doesn’t stop there.
Starting one day prior, Viz will be streaming two episodes of the Cross Game anime adaptation free of charge. If you have any interest in the series, or want an animated primer before you dig into the comic, be sure to stop by vizanime.com on Monday, October 11.
