This was my first venture into the sports anime genre, and DnA just sucked me into it like a black hole. I've never watched a single baseball game in my life and I've never showed any interest in the sport. I honestly thought that I wouldn't like this show, but if it's good enough to get approved for 52 episodes in its first season (and the fact that it was being produced by Madhouse), I thought I'd give it a try. I can honestly say that DnA has become one of my all-time favourite shows.

The story (10/10) is pretty straightforward: we follow Sawamura's journey as read more

Alright, I noticed many reviews were based off of people who have never played baseball, so I thought I'd share my opinion from the perception of a baseball player. I'll do my best to leave this review spoiler free. Also note this review is long, my apologies D:

Recommendations

Both main heros have similar traits and pitch straight balls only.
Both shows have a good humour.
A gift for sports fans, both series delivers themselves with competitive teamwork and plays that focuses on development. The main characters has a passion for the sport that they are playing and works towards their goal to becoming stronger each episode. Their teammates helps them along the way while tackling through difficult obstacles. It is realistic as we see how much the characters grow through their development over the course. I recommend both series especially if you're the type into sports with competitive team play.
