It's hard to talk about what's actually great about this anime, it's the type of anime that you'd just get excited by watching, even if you sometimes don't know why exactly is it so exciting.

-Story-
The story isn't so interesting, it won't draw your attention when you read the synopses, especially since the show took a kinda different way than the first two episodes.
It starts with the main character "Sawamura Eijun" who loves Baseball, and plays it everyday with his friends, who are not so good at it, one day he gets a chance to go to "Seido" a school with a strong Baseball team, even read more

I have never written a review before, nor had I planned to. And I really dont care how un-review-like this review may be. I had to do it. I had to make an exception, just for this series, because I don not think that this series has got the credit or acknowledgement that is deserves. I will not go into detail about the story, the characters, sound or any of that (HOWEVER, I love the opening, story, characters and art.. such beautiful art...)

All I will say is this: This show is amazing.

Its hilarious. Its intense. Its my favourite anime EVER. (and that's saying something)

Recommendations

Both main heros have similar traits and pitch straight balls only.
Both shows have a good humour.
They're both baseball anime with the main character being a pitcher, who's pitching got a certain quirk due to never receiving proper coaching. They're different in that Oofuri's Mihashi is the ace of a new established team and lacks self-confidence, while DnA's Sawamura joins a high school baseball elite school and is overconfident despite being no where near the ability of the regular members of the team.

Opening Theme

#1: "Go EXCEED!!" by Tom-H@ck featuring Masayoshi Oishi (eps 1-25)
#2: "Perfect HERO" by Tom-H@ck featuring Masayoshi Oishi (eps 26-)

Ending Theme

#1: "Seek Diamonds" by Yoko Hikasa (eps 1-13)
#2: "Glory! (グローリー!)" by Suzuko Mimori (eps 14-25)
#3: "Mirai e Tsunage (未来へつなげ)" by DOP (Diamond no Ace Ouen Project: Wakaba, Haruno Yoshikawa, Takako Fujiwara, Sachiko Umemoto, Yui Natsukawa with AOP) (eps 26-)
