A talk show event featuring Yonaga Tsubasa, Fukuyama Jun, Shimono Hiro will be held to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the anime broadcast of “Big Windup!” .
“Big Windup!” is based on an authentic high school baseball manga serialized by Higuchi Asa in “Monthly Afternoon” since 2003, which won the 10th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Award New Star Award in 2006 and the 31st Kodansha Manga Award in 2007 in the general category.
It depicts ten first-year players in the newly established baseball club of Nishiura High School, who grow through games and practices, with the weak and subservient pitcher Mihashi at the center of the team.
The talk show event will be held to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the anime broadcast of this work. In addition to Yonaga Tsubasa, who plays the main character Mihashi Ren, the daytime part will feature Fukuyama Jun (Izumi Kosuke) and the evening part will feature Shimono Hiro (Tajima Yuichiro).
At the event, the performers will talk about the anime and play games, and the audience will be able to enjoy the world of “Big Windup!”.
The “Mixa Animation Diary” will also include backstage talks by the performers, which will be available as a special bonus. This talk, which can only be heard here, is a must-see for fans, so be sure to check it out as well.
The talk show “Mixa Animation Diary ‘Big Windup!’” will be held at Theater Mixa on May 21, 2022.
