  • Best Sports Anime Around Town
    This show not only captures the essence of character development but does a good job of doing it. After having watched other sports anime I came across an issue that was prevalent in all of them, a poor MC. Ace of Diamond from the get go decides to avoid this by going down the path of proper and well flushed out character development. From early on Eijun's hidden ability is made clear however, it ...

    I see you're considering Ace of Diamond...
    Watch this anime.

    It's been since the last season ended and I'm hazy on character names and plot specifics.... But I remember all the emotions and the character's personalities/abilities. The best thing about sports anime is that it can often present grounded human ability. But's it's still anime, so it has creative ways for you to enjoy, through metaphor, how extraordinary these "for-granted" ...

  • A Different Kind of Baseball
    This series is one of a few different baseball anime series, but this one takes the cake as the most interesting and really tells the watcher what baseball is all about. I am not a baseball hype monster but I do really enjoy the characters and atmosphere that this show brings to the plate (pun intended). Each character in the show whether it be an enemy pitcher or another teammate, they all have a ...

    It just an okay anime. average, watchable sports anime
    Almost drop this anime, Eijun's positivity and Miyuki's badass character is the only redeeming quality of this anime. Two seasons with each more than 60 episode and the Main character is still a far cry from being the ace.

    I think, they should have change it, being Furuya the main guy, since the mangaka obviously love him more than the main guy. It should have been called Furuya no Ace.

  • Absolutely Amazing!!
    I want a season 3! The animation for their movements is perfect and they capture the attitude of an athlete very well. Being a player myself I was able to relate to a lot of this, especially Miyuki. Definitely one of my favorites and I will be reading the manga!

  • Better than Real Life Baseball
    I'm not a fan of baseball, and watching the majors is pretty boring to me here in the states, but for some reason this anime makes baseball interesting. Not even the many movies we have on baseball here in the states make it as interesting as this anime did.

    Kudos to the writers for this anime. I feel like I have more of an appreciation for the game now and why so many people are fans of it. ...

  • Great Anime, Even Greater Sports Anime
    This show is actually why I ended up paying for Crunchyroll! The characters in this highschool baseball anime are all so well rounded and written. The 2 ace pitchers Sawamura & Furuya are so different from one another (one a hardworking athlete, the other a naturally gifted one) yet their want to be the ace is played to great effect over the course of the series.
    As an example of how deep this ...

    Excellent beyond my expectations
    I didn't know anything about baseball other than the fact that it's a sport. This anime made me fall in love with baseball. It has some really interesting characters, rivalries, team growth, character development and grwoth in a very realistic level with meaningful pace unlike the shitty sports anime like Yowamushi pedal and Kuroku.

  • It's Been 2yrs and Still It Makes My Heart Pound!!
    I first picked this series up two years ago when I was trying to get into the sports anime genre and I was quickly addicted. I stopped watching because the series wasn't complete and now with s2 at some 50 episodes, I've picked it up again.

    As a refresher I did re-pick up s1 starting at the game against Inashiro and it still made my heart pound, it still made me cry and scream and hold onto ...

  • Intensity, Perseverance, Integrity, and the pursuit of your goals...Thats what this is! YES YES YES!
    I really went into this with little expectations but it far exceeded any ideas I had to be a great sports anime. Its all about struggle and hard work to discover your potential and to push your limits or expand your views. Sawamura plays sincerely and always tries to be better than before eventhough he falters sometimes, he pushes through to move forward one step at a time. I really enjoyed his ...
