MIX Season 2: Release Date Confirmed + Teaser Visual Revealed
MIX Season 2 gets its first look! Sports and anime have a long history of producing popular series with interesting characters and intriguing storylines.
The options available for a sports fan are innumerable, with likes of Blue lock, Haikyuu, Yuri on Ice, Sk8: Infinity, Tsurune, and many more covering various sports.
Football, Skating, Basketball, and Boxing have all received mainstream animes, and it was only a matter of time before Baseball got its adaption in the form of Mix Meisei’s Story.
The story s’ premise is about the legendary team left by Tatsuya Uesugi of the Meisei Academy High School, which won its first championship and was regarded as the strongest baseball team.
However, 26 years later, the team has been nowhere near the pinnacle and has considerably regressed over time.
Two stepbrothers, Souichirou and Touma Tachibana are frustrated at the downfall and aim to return the Meisei Academy baseball team to the top.
Can the stepbrothers successfully take to their former glory as they learn their father s’ sport heritage is the central plot of the show.
Mix Meisei’s Story season one was received mostly with positive reactions however, it couldn’t attract the same hype as other baseball anime counterparts like Ace of Diamond and Cinderella Nine, released in the Spring of 2019.
Either way, Baseball is an extremely popular sport in the United States of America which incidentally is also a country where anime is heavily consumed.
So, the overlap of the two interests was quite obvious, and consequently, fans of Mix Meisei’s Story are wondering if there will be a second season or not.

MIX SEASON 2 PLOT
In the finale of Mix Meisei’s Story Season one, “A Bit Like Him”? The semi-final between Meisei High School and Toushuu High continues to be a close game with no score from either team.
In the extra innings, Mita, a super high school class lefty from Toushuu, becomes even more impressive.
In contrast, Touma rapidly makes progress during the game. Before he knows it, his pitching form has become the ideal way to throw.
An official plot is yet to be revealed by Studio OLM, but we can expect Mix season 2 to continue where season one left off and pick up after the events of the first year.
MIX Season 2 will begin by adapting from Volume 11 of the manga, and the story will take place after the Summer of the first year of high school.
