Captain Manga to Get a New Sequel Series

Cozy Jōkura will launch a new sequel adaptation of Akio Chiba’s Captain manga in the May 2019 issue of Shueisha’s Grand Jump Mucha magazine on April 24, 2019. The sequel, titled Captain 2, will focus on Shigekazu Kondō, who took over the captain role from Igarashi.

Chiba launched the original Captain manga in the February 1972 issue of Shueisha’s Bessatsu Shonen Jump magazine (later titled Monthly Shonen Jump) and ended it in 1979. The story follows middle school student Takao Taniguchi, who transfers from a school famous for its baseball to a no-name school. There, he is chosen as the baseball club captain.
