Goro actually looked quite young when his dad told him about going southpaw. Since he did it while he was moved away, and he was away for quite a few years, he had plenty of time to train his arm back. The few months that he told what's his name (Brainfart right now, the guy with the ruined elbow.) was for how long it took before he started seeing noticeable results from switching over, not how long it took to go from ruined to on the mound.

So far... i like major better... because Major is quick, fast and can contribute strong emotions into you like how death came so suddenly... and ookiku furikabutte.. was really awesome, especially the theme and ending songs.. i really loved them alot, especially the 2nd opening for ookiku furikabutte hahaha.. umnn the problem with ookiku is that the games drag on for way too long.. atleast 4-5 eps a game would be great but i mean.. like 8+ episodes focused on one game.. they actually do evolve through the game but i want to see more developing and then great results.. thats what i like most about animes.. really harsh training and when you see the results, it make you think watching everything so far has made it all worthwhile.. but this is just my opinion.

Ummm nooooo. . .I have the series and i watch it repeatedly. Goro switched to South paw when he decided to come back to play baseball before that he was all for soccer. He gave up baseball until he met everyone again in junior high. . .he didn't train his arm. . .. that was why there was parts that he tied his hand and arm and just using his left and not his right. . . .

Go watch ep 29 again. The flashback when his dad tells him about going southpaw is soon after he threw his arm out (And it states hes in 6th grade, so it's obv that it's been a few years.). Id be surprised if anyone thought he didnt immediately start working at it after seeing that flashback.

It never actually states when he starts training to throw lefty, but taking his personality into account, he would have started immediately. Taking his competitive nature into account, he needed another sport to feed the hunger of of competition that he had. And in speculation, and knowing Goro, he probably also looked at soccer as a fantastic way to train his body. With a shoulder injury, he wouldnt have been able to even throw a ball (Much like Yamane in the practice game against Mifune West.).

The only thing that isnt speculation is Goro's personality. He wouldnt have just picked up soccer after throwing his arm out. He sulked, he said it himself. He wouldnt pick up another sport with the thought of never playing baseball again haunting him as much as it was at the time. The quote at the start of ep 29 states it perfectly too. "Frankly, when my right shoulder gave out, I thought it was hopeless. I was almost ready to give up. But you know, for me, there just wasn't anything I could do but baseball." That quote shows he never stopped. He was close, but he never stopped training for that time when he would be ready enough to step back on the mound.

And this being a typical shonen, obviously he would be ready to step back on the mound the year he gets back to Mifune, and has the ability to play with Komori again. But he said he was still training with a softball (More than likely not meaning a softball like a women's softball, but probably a rubber ball as they had 2 divisions, hard rubber ball, and hard ball. Incidentally they played with a hard rubber ball anyways in the matches while he was at Mifune.).

No matter how hard i tried i couldn't get all the way through Major but when only the first few episodes were up of Ookiku Furikabutte i rewatched it enough to have the image burnt into my computer screen, i swear. Major is a good anime, but Ookiku Furikabutte is better. (sorry ppl who love Major, just telling the truth)
