  • BEST BASEBALL ANIME!
    I was never really into baseball but since I started watching this anime I started loving it! The animation is one of the best, the matches are all really intense and you see how most of the characters evolve personally. I highly recommend this anime

  • it's good... now to pad the title to pass the character limit
    This show is really good at making you like and care about the characters, even ones who just appear in one game. There were a few arcs I wasn't expecting to care about, but within an episode they pulled me in. It's also light for the most part, with the most drama being a character getting injured (not seriously, just enough to call into question whether they can give 100%). Explains enough about ...

  • Imo, the best sports anime of recent
    Yes Haikyuu has all the love and hype (and rightly deserves it), but AoD and Baby Steps imo are the best sports anime of recent.

    The characters in this series are so good and unlike almost every sports series ever, the main character is NOT vital to the success of the team right away, so he has to himself vital, and the process and story of that is part of what makes AoD so great.

    The ...

    Great show but brace yourself a bit
    This is really fun to watch but it's still way way way w...'flashback scene to me wishing I could see how a game would conclude before needing to leave for class but not having enough time'...ay too drawn out. Also I wish it didn't have so many recaps (though personally, I'll never get recaps. to me they're only used either because the writer doesn't have enough content to fill the allotted number ...

    Great but could have been better
    This series made me discover the baseball world. It is great, but it could have been way better.
    In some ways, this anime could blow your mine, but i find it sometimes (too centered | not centered) on the right characters.

    Why did i gave it only 3 stars ? The answer is because it is the same reaction over, over and over. More the episode goes, the reaction become more and more boring to ...

  • Made me love baseball
    When I first started watching this anime, my knowledge of the sport was that it was boring and takes forever. This anime has taught me the rules and positions of Baseball as well as why its so exciting! I have been a fan of baseball since! It is also just a great story of a young pitcher with so much potential and motivation to succeed but not much training. The further I got along the more I ...

    Wish I had watched this sooner
    I had my hesitations despite some recommendations to watch this show. However, I am so glad that I picked it up because it was exhilarating and rewarding. I am so impressed with the animation, humor, and camaraderie in this show. They did a great job bringing out emotions and being able to have so many characters play such an important role. I highly suggest watching this show! It seems like it ...

    Do not hesitate to watch this show!!
    For a few years now, I've heard others talking about Ace of Diamond. I couldn't get over my bias towards sports anime and avoided watching it. Man was I ever wrong.

    What can I say about this anime? Not only is it one of the best shounen I have ever seen, but in actuality, it is one of the best anime I have ever seen.

    Not only is the main character fleshed out, but all of his teammates (also ...

  • Best Anime Ever! Never Give Up!
    Ace of diamond is a must watch anime who really catches your eye with its great graphical image along with exciting music. Although the reason for why it is such a great anime is the reason that expresses real life baseball and real life obstacles in which we have to overcome. For example Sawamura the main character had to develop a strong fighting spirit in order to make the 1st string team and ...
