    Just a fantastic show.
    I want to point out that this is my first time ever watching a sport anime. Before i'd used to think well why not just watch the real thing? I mean what can they possibly do with a sport?? And this just blew my mind. I'm sure that I will now give other sport animes a try.

    Ace of Anime!!!!!!!!
    Anime has so many greats that you cannot compare but as for the sports category this is hands down a super awesome anime! I love the intensity and excitement it brings. I am a fan of baseball but I think someone who is not would still enjoy watching this show. It takes a lot to grow as an athlete and although some aspects may be exaggerated the struggle to be number one in any sport is real.

    One of the best ANIME I've watched
    When it comes to sports anime, the genres a favorite of mine. Slam dunk is by far my favorite anime of all time, and this one is on par with it so far. Sawamura reminds me of Hanamichi, a kid with limitless potential surrounded by great players..........

    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 great sports anime!
    An interesting anime that draws me into baseball which i don't particularly like! There are many characters in this show, which is not surprising since baseball is a major team sport.
    Pros:
    Loyalty, teamwork, trust, courage are common themes in the show. It is also rather realistic and easy to connect w/ the the characters. Despite the vast number of characters, I feel like each are given a ...

    Great characters, boring sport.
    I've never been a fan of baseball, but this show is more about the characters than the sport. The games they play are little more than a vehicle to drive personal and team development.

    That said, it is easy to get sucked into the action scenes. A few times I have gasped, or had my jaw drop when the players do something awesome. It does move a little slow at times, but I am usually excited for ...

    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 ...

  • An Amazing Sports Anime!
    Ace of Diamond, an anime produced by Production I.G (Kuroko no Basket) & Madhouse (Hajime no Ippo). Both of these animation companies are very knowledgeable in the sports genre as seen in their previous titles. This eventually lead to the creation of this amazing show.

    This series isn't rushed, it's paced very well and supported by amazing animation. There are a wide variety of characters to ...

  • Great anime about baseball
    I am not usually a huge fan of sport animes, but this one has gripped me in an obsessive way. I meant to start it and work my way up to the 28 episodes that were out at the time slowly, but I ended up becoming obsessed with it and catching up within 3 days. The characters and deep sense of competition keep the show intensely interesting. I had many times where the episode ended and I was like ...
