    Not Quite An ACE of Diamond
    Let me start this off by saying I am not a baseball fan at all. I only know the basics and this anime really teaches you about the sport. With the different types of pitches, callouts, plays, hand signs etc. I got hooked

    It follows Sawamura as he gets recruited to join the Seidou high school baseball team, Sawamura has a southpaw pitching style and he wants to be the Ace of the team. Which is ...

    Step by Step He Achieves greatness
    The anime ace of diamond has a interesting depiction on high school baseball I could go on about how great this anime is but my favorite part of this anime is sawamura yes yes he's a lovable knuckle head but rather then that you watch and feel what he has been through , The coach said it well "step by step" this is true as sawamura has to endure all the challenges to get where he is he is not the ...

    two hot wet kisses and three thumbs up
    I wanna kiss this anime and all the cute boys in it. I've sold my soul to previous sports animes but the dark lord lucifer has worked his magic in this 75 episode curse. I want to get off this ride but I can't. Have I mention I hate baseball bc I do but I love a good dang. I am converted. I love baseball. I feel my pants tightening every time I watch this anime. It's so good and I wanna kiss every ...

    Fun light entertainment, but little spread a bit thin.
    Fun light entertainment to watch when stuck at home with a cold, but with so many episodes available to watch back to back on Crunchy Roll its clear this could be edited down a lot into something more impactful. Plenty of repeated scenes (e.g. original advert breaks) and overuse of basic effects for demonstrating character emotion like resolve or smouldering anger (look its the blue/red flame ...

    Favorite Sports Anime
    Great characters and great story makes this a great show. I love the enthusiasm of the main character Eijun Sawamura. I love his relation ship with his team mates and his rivalry with Furuya. It's never been a petty rivalry where the would do things to make the other look bad but instead drive each other to become better. Seeing this team climb the ranks has been more enjoyable than teams like ...

    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 ...

    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..........

    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 ...
