    Arguable most boring
    Literally, from a perspective of someone who enjoys any sports anime such as Giant Killing, Eyeshield 21, Area no Kishi, Prince of Tennis, Free!, Kuroko no Basket, and many others. This anime is honestly deadly boring. The plot is super repetitive, and it's gets annoying. It's not even repetitive plot with progress, but it's stuck. It's basically the dude gets hype, and mess up one pitch, he is ...

    Great start but 60+ episodes on....
    This anime starts of really great but after 60 episodes the show becomes long winded. Likeable characters disappear and are replaces by new characters which do have much to them. They bring nothing new and it makes the anime stale after a while. They said the animation is excellent and it should be a given when Mad House is on the case.

    A Great Sports Anime
    This show has been extremely faithful to the manga. The animation is also really nice to look at (seeing as it was produced by both Madhouse and Production I.G.). The only downside, true to all sports anime, is that the pacing can be extremely slow. It may take 10 episodes to find out who won a single baseball game. If you need your sports anime fix, you can do a lot worse than Ace of the ...

  • Wow! 75 Episodes????
    I read the manga up to 265 (its up to like 380 but chapters 266-current have a lot of skips-still waiting on the new scanlation team to fill in the gaps!) and was delighted to see that this anime was so successful and season 1 ended pretty close to chapter 265. I feared that it would just get 25 episodes but not only did it go up to 75 episodes but season 2 is up and coming?? MUST WATCH NOW!!! ...

  • It gets better, trust me!
    If you decide to pick up this show, don't be too discouraged if you feel the show is a little...over-dramatic (crying, yelling, etc). I felt the same way, and in my opinion the show gets significantly better about this after about the first 20 episodes.

  • My Favorite Sports Series
    Diamond no Ace has a very simple but effective story line, when you're watching the show & you see how hard these guys work, sometimes having to practice up to 3 times a day, you can't help but to start like each & every character. It is different to other sports animes such as Kuroko, the baseball is a lot more grounded but that's what I like about it, it feels real. It does have a semi slow ...

  • Fav sports anime!!!!
    I love sports anime I have seen most of them but this one is amazing not so gimicky as Kuroko and Prince of tennis there is no special moves just good story. Its more grounded, I enjoy you don't see them practicing for a week and being amazing with some new move that has some weird name

  • Enjoyable but could be much better
    If you are really into sport's anime then jump right in and give this one a look! I'm very 50/50 on Ace of Diamond's its well drawn and there are some very lovable characters however... The pacing is super slow and the "MC" just seems to kinda to fade away as more and more time goes on.

    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 ...
