For those that don't already know, there will be a Major 6.
NHK has announced that the 6th season of Major will start in April of 2010.
And based on the article title I linked to, it seems it will delve further into Goro's psychological scars from giving up a game losing home run to Joe Gibson Jr. during the Baseball World Cup.
I still haven't decided whether or not I'll continue to write summaries here and sub-titles for Minor Ja Nai, but I'm sure I'll have
A body was apparently found at the foot of some cliffs on a mountain trail Yoshito Usui may have been hiking. The body is set to be recovered on Sunday so an ID will be possible at that point in time.
Potentially sad news for Crayon Shin-chan fans.

Sadly, reports now indicate that the body police found yesterday and recovered on Sunday did indeed belong to Yoshito Usui.

For those of you who have seen Crayon Shin-chan, some potentially troubling news.
Author of popular manga 'Crayon Shin-chan' goes missing
KASUKABE, Saitama -- Yoshito Usui, author of the popular manga "Crayon Shin-chan," has gone missing, prompting his family to file a search request with police, it has been learned.
Police said that Usui, 51, left his home in Kasukabe on the morning of Sept. 11, saying he was going to the mountains in Gunma Prefecture.
For anyone interested, I'm twittering the episode as it airs...
The episodes just finished. No word on whether or not there will be a 6th season, but the very last scene after the end credits shows Goro in the middle of pitching a perfect game. And the closing monologue by Goro does leave open the possibility of another season.
I'm not quite sure when I'll be able to the full summary up, but I'll try to get it done within the next

Again, my apologies for the extreme delay. And just as with my last couple of summaries, I wasn't able to really check over my work so you might run across some mistakes (although there should be anything glaring).
If you notice anything wrong, drop a comment and let me know and I'll fix it.
So now I'm all caught up for what should be the final episode of the 5th season. If anyone is interested, I may try to twitter the last episode.
