I think it is, but people think they are too different compare. I love the descriptive nature of this show rather than the over the top drama. What do you think??

i wont say it's better, i think they are at the same level as major... both are different. ookiku furikabutte a bit more baseball and strategy and major is more of life and determination... so i love both... not bias! ehehehehe...

the animation is different from other anime which suits better with the plot and story.

I like them both, but if i have to make a choice i would go with Ookiku Furikabutte.
Both have a good story line and some nice action.
It is just that i think Ookiku Furikabutte is more realistic, but that is just my opinion.

I like Ookiku Furikabutte better. major is too long to follow after a while we will forget the earlier parts and rewatch the entire series.

I like them both, I would rate them as such as well I mean the pitchers both have different styles so you get different emotions. Like Major throws one pitch, a really really fast ball where as Ookiku Furikabutte the pitcher has many pitches but are slow. But if I had to choose it would be Major for now, since it has more eps, and has gone deeper into character development of the main character and his struggle with injury,death and rivals.

When it comes to sports genre I am pretty picky because I prefer my sports anime to be about heart and emotion with sports as a backdrop and ookiku Furikabutte doesn't stray from this back drop it follows the formula of impossible odds and climb to the top quite well. What's interesting about this when I compare to Major is that the baseball team has flawed individuals but taken as a whole it's near perfect because everyone balances everyone out. .. for example, the personalities of mihashi and abe cancel each other out.

Even if you don't know baseball or know baseball. . .this series has it. . .lots of baseball strategies. It's a bit deeper than both Major and H2, and there is enough Initial D type twists to keep the baseball scenes engrossing. There is comedy. Just having Mihashi as the pitcher is comedy because he is pathetic and whiny but that's what's interesting, you end up rooting for him because as the drama unfolds you notice him getting a little confident and one can relate to a person like that because human's evolve to what they are slowly.

When I compare it to it to major. .. Goro-kun is the typical shonen hero who is born talented even though he works hard but turn into a powerhouse monster. His formula that became a bit repetitve is: go to weak school/take on underdog, inspire everyone to reach his goals, gets hurt, but continues to play, everything is the fastball even though he challenge other pitchers and batters he only improve his speed because is character personality is already set. His time in the limelight is 90 percent of the time while Ookiku Furikabutte has everyone (including their rivals) equal time to shine so one gets the perspectives of everyone because, BASEBALL is a team sport. . .and individual growth relies on the whole of the team. . .Not that Major doesn't have it too. . .it's just that Major doesn't focus on it much because everything revolves around Goro while in Ookiku the attention is on Mihashi's growth with his team members and their determination to make a name for the team. So, basically more realistic when compare to Major. Slice of life with a dash of steel detemination really is more heart warming. That's why it made it to the top 50 animes of 2007 in Japan, even surpassing naruto, bleach, and major placing 24th while those that I mentioned did not end up on the list. . .I got the info at ANN. . . .
