Hello everyone! This is a forum so that everyone can "meet n greet"! LOL So let’s introduce ourselves to one another and share our love for DnA! I'll go first to break the ice sotospeak~

My name is Jess. I'm currently a senior in college and will (hopefully) graduate this December. I'm from New Mexico and moved out to Florida for college. (Which is awesome because spring training!) I grew up playing most sports, but my best and most serious sport was softball. My three main positions were 2nd, 3rd, and right field...I usually was third in the lineup because I was very flexible in my batting. I joined a travel team when I was 10 and had been top 8 (except one year we were 12th) in the World Series up until I was 17. I never got to play in college because I broke my ankle real bad my senior year of High School. After three surgeries, there's still permanent damage and I'll have to have another surgery when I get the chance. I may not be able to run anymore, but I was able to row in college. When I thought I was done for all sports, the women's rowing coach spotted me at orientation and said: "If you don't try it, you'll never know.." and I'm forever grateful that I was able to compete in such an amazing sport. When one door closes, another one opens.

Yeeesh, that was sappy. But yeah, I love DnA because it captures the very essence of baseball. And quite frankly, it's hard for me to watch because every episode makes me want to get out there and play again. Maybe I'll coach one day?

Fun fact. I actually started out playing baseball because when I was 5, there weren't enough girls to play softball...so I played baseball instead. I started playing softball when I was 7.

Soooo I'm pretty bad at the whole "about me" stuff because I end up rambling on and on....and I get into tangents. But yeah. If y'all have any questions about me, feel free to ask! I'm pretty much an open book.


It's nice to meet everyone!

Nice to meet everyone!
I'm Masaki and currently I'm taking a semester off from college but I would be in my 2nd year if anybody was wondering! My family is from Japan but I was born in the U.S. and I grew up in Atlanta, Georgia all my life! I frequently travel because my mom is a flight attendant so I get to visit Japan many times and Okinawa & Ishigaki which are small islands south of the mainland where most of my family are!

Now I basically grew up playing sports such as baseball, football, basketball, tennis, and volleyball. My main focus was baseball which I started playing when I was I think 3-4 at the time. I played several positions including Shortstop, Catcher, Right Field, and Left Field. I batted in all sorts of places in the lineup but mainly around the cleanup positions like 3rd-5th because I was versatile at bat with some power and I was a little fast on base. I did quit right before travel ball though and I still don't remember why but it might have something to do with what my family was going through or maybe my right shoulder but if you ask me I personally regret that decision... Anyways, I did get into tennis and volleyball around high school though and I still play tennis time to time today with friends.

DNA, now let me tell you this is one of the best, if not the best sports anime I have ever watched in my anime career... The plot, the story each player has, the plays they make, and all the twists and turns are all so real! I honestly want to play baseball again and this anime has made me realize that a team is like another family and I miss that.

Well if you think I'm a pretty chill or cool person then visit my page, ask me questions or add me to learn more!

P.S. I hope people in the group will become more active and I hope many more people will join and become a fan of this show!

Hey Masaki, PruBen.

I'm Dany from California and I'm pretty new to Crunchyroll. I played baseball when I was a kid too but I was really bad at it, but I always liked it. I grew up collecting baseball cards and had quite a lot of them. As far as sports anime's go this is definitely the cream of the crop and it's in HD for free that's pretty cool. I watched season 1, but I didn't know there was a season 2 until two days ago, but it reminds me of another great sports anime Hajime no Ippo. Baseball and Soccer are huge outside of the U.S.. I'm Hispanic so I know only a few words in Japanese and I'm a professional Musician and know some computer programming. All my freetime I spend watching Anime and a few other hobbies, anime should take over the world.

Hello I go by my nickname yazowy since my name is hard , I'm from UAE and this is my first year at university. Im new to crunchyroll too and I'm glad i found out about this group since I LOVE this anime so much. I started watching season 1 last year because i didn't know about it until then. I have many friends who watch anime but surprisingly if i ask them about this show they don't know about it and it frustrate me because such an amazing anime should be known. I knew a little about baseball before watching it but now i feel like I'm an expert at this game hahah obviously after watching it more than 5 times *am not kidding* I watch it all the time even when i was at high school in the middle of the class lol. I tried other anime communities and websites but I couldn't find someone who enjoy the show as much as i do . I LOVE ANIME ABOUT SPORT like the basketball one and haikyuu *addict* sport is my fav genre.

P.S: MIYUKI KAZUYA IS MY BAE !!

Oh cool! It's nice to meet you! I totally understand the feeling when none of your friends watch this series, because my friends don't watch it either. All they know is how obsessed I am over Ace of Diamond. <3 <3 <3 There is a great Facebook group for the series if you want to join that community as well. I can send you the link
I'm so glad that this series got you into baseball and that you love it so much! Ace of Diamond is very close to the real thing so you're in good hands when it comes to learning all about baseball!

Oh gosh Miyuki is like the ultimate husband! 1000000000% I agree with you!
