    Sports Anime Like Never Before
    These new generation of sports anime including Kuroko basketball will inspire many watchers of anime to love, live and enjoy their favorite sport. As for Ace of the Diamond it has shown to be an anime which has potential and could stand the test of time. The first episode had a mix of Friendship, hunger to achieve, loyalty to ones comrades and ultimately to dream.

    Diamond in the Rough
    After watching the first episode of this new sports anime, it turned out to be a surprise. I am not a sports fan, but I actually enjoyed it and there were some funny moments that made me laugh out loud. I highly recommend giving this anime a shot if you are in doubt or unsure it will be good. I am definitely watching all of the episodes for this show!

    This anime makes Baseball not as boring.
    The anime has a good flow of intensity to it. It keeps you on the edge of your seat to be frank. I've always thought Baseball was a boring sport so I was a little iffy when I decided to watch it, but I'm glad I did. The plot has all of the good ingredients for a edgy and exciting sports anime. You won't be disappointed with this one.

    Cool, different take on baseball anime
    This series starts off a little slowly and a bit differently from your typical sports anime, but the excitement and competition ramp up like crazy soon enough! What sets "Daiya no Ace" apart from other baseball anime is that, usually, the heroes are a small underdog team that takes down the big teams that dominate Koushien. But this time, DnA is about one of those big, elite teams, and the ...

    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 ...

    Not a fan of Baseball? Neither was I.
    But that didn't stop me from absolutely loving this anime. It isn't just about baseball; it's about so much more. That being said, the series has taught me a lot about the game that I never really could understand or appreciate before, and I have a deeper respect for it now. I think that in itself is a great compliment you can give to something; where it changes your opinion on what you previously ...

    Best baseball anime, hands down
    Ace of the Diamond is the best baseball anime I've ever seen, hands down (even including Oofuri, if only slightly). It doesn't fall into the traps of so many other sports anime - which is, either 1) only focusing on the main character, shafting the other members of the team, and some dumbass rival; or 2) repeating the trope of a superstar lone player reviving a underdog team and taking them to ...

    A must watch for every baseball fan! No... Everyone!
    Well when I started this anime, which was when it was 8 episodes in, I didn't expect much. Just this baseball anime with cool animation. I have never been so wrong in my life. This anime is thrilling, competitive, and non-stop (baseball) action! Each week I am left with despair, however, as I must wait for the next episode for an ENTIRE WEEK. Pretty painful. Regardless, I recommend this anime to ...
