  • This needs way more attention !
    This review won't be like other reviews because when it comes to Ace of Diamond it's just so awesome that it didn't take its time to become one of my favorites !
    I mean c'mon guys when MadHouse and IG do a collaboration together in a show that definitely means the show has tremendous potential.

  • Ace of the Diamond knocks it out of the park!
    This may very well not only be among my top five sports anime, but it may be one of my favorite anime series. I was hesitant going into the series despite being a fan of baseball. I thought it would drag on like most sports anime and I would get bored with it. Boy, was I wrong!
    Diamond no Ace perfectly balances sports action and slice-of-life plotlines, allowing viewers to connect with ...

    MC is not Sawamura at ALL
    Everyone is saying this show is realistic, and mc need to be down down down to be able to grow grow better than other people to become ace. While Furuya having almost 100% strike while his animation is always 1 fast shoot for the past 1year, and the manga is over 5 year old already. His screen time is also as much as Sawamura while on the field. What is the point of developing the "Sawamura" skill ...

    An Educational Baseballcoaster of Energy!
    I've really enjoyed watching AOD and put it firmly up there with my favorites! Why? It has a degree of balance that is lacking in other vocational/sport series that I've watched. The story and plot is underpinned by competition training and progress, so when there are moments of humor or confrontation it's sudden and potent. A strong lead character that isn't at the focus of everything is a nice ...

    Not terrible, but extremely generic.
    In a genre that has recently been undergoing an evolution with the likes of Baby Steps and Kuroko no Basuke I find it very difficult to recommend Ace of the Diamond. If there was a book explaining in step-by-step detail how to make a sports anime AotD would be following it to a ‘T’. For this reason it’s still watchable, it doesn’t do anything grievously wrong but it also doesn’t do a single thing ...

  • First Foray into Sports Anime
    Thought I'd try this out on a whim, and I was more than pleasantly surprised. No supernatural powers, no over-the-top "lol so random" humor, just great characters, fluid animation, excellent pacing and just the right amount of tension and drama.

    I was honestly shocked to find myself as heavily invested in this series as I have become.

    Absolutely one of the better animes I have seen, just ...

    Better than Kuroko's Basketball?
    Here I was thinking that no other sports anime could top Kuroko no basuke but this one just might do it for me. I only started watching this anime about four days ago but I love it so much I already managed to catch up to the most recent episode (episode 64).

    Pacing has been fantastic so far, I enjoy shows with a lot of episodes as long as they don't have useless filler or start dragging stuff ...

    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 ...
