  • Awarded best shōnen manga
    Won the Kodansha Manga Award for best shōnen manga in 2010.
    This series is really enjoyable and has a balanced amount of comedy and drama.
    I love the main character sawamura as I feel we are very much alike. The characters are great and are not stereotypical like most anime shows. I love the pace but some may not agree. Its a show about realistic baseball and training to improve yourself step ...

  • Fantastic Potential!
    What is the show actually about and what you can expect.:
    When you first start watching the show you will expect the story to resolve just around Sawamura, if you think that you are wrong. The story resolves around the whole Seido baseball team. Not just Sawamura! Yes, they do focus a lot of Sawamura, he is the main character after all, but he isn't the only character. Furuya, ...

    Unique Style of Baseball
    Japan is a nation of good baseball. They take their academics and athletics very seriously. So of course, this anime will introduce you to the world of competitive Japanese baseball. I found myself that playing baseball after watching an episode of this show improves your play on or off the mound. Sawamura Eijun fights through the intense high school baseball years as he challenges new people and ...

    great story and pacing
    avoiding the trappings of supernatural sports animes, this one goes for a realistic vibe, the protagonist despite having the greatest raw potential ever, simply sucks because his lacks experience. and because this is much more realistic in this high level team there are 3 other pitchers besides him that can get the job done, so by episode 20 this anime is not really about the games against other ...

    well worth watching.
    I have really enjoyed this show, watching the first 18 episodes twice. I am not a big sports fan and had avoided this show until I ran out of something to watch. while this show takes place in a baseball laden atmosphere, it doesn't require a love of baseball to get into it.

    Truly Captures High-Level Baseball
    Fantastic anime, but more importantly one of the most accurate depictions of baseball in any media I've watched. Having played on a high level American high school baseball team in the past, I'm shocked at how closely Seido's practices (especially all of the running and sprinting) mirror what our team used to do in high school. Even more importantly, as a former pitcher for many years, I'm ...

  • review on Diamond no ace
    One of the best sports anime and i would recommend it to just anybody looking for anybody looking for sports anime or just to kill time. The story line is simply to win the national champion however, various character development and the over the top comedy makes it fun to watch. it also tells us baseball isn't only a man throwing the ball and the batter hitting the ball but there is more to it ...

  • a great comedy drama double play.
    Started this one during the late fall block and have been glued to it ever since, I won't lie and say this anime is for everyone, you might like it if your a general fan of baseball, I am not a huge fan but I really like this one, give it a try you may like it even if your not a fan, keep in mind the story revolves heavily around baseball terms,positions and players, I would only reccomend this ...
