With a stray pitch that completely missed the batter, Eijun Sawamura loses his final middle school baseball game. Frustrated by this defeat, Eijun and his teammates vow to reach the national tournament once they are in high school. But everything changes when a scout unexpectedly invites him to Tokyo's prestigious Seidou High School after seeing the potential in his unusual pitching style. Encouraged by his teammates, Eijun accepts the offer, ready to improve his skills and play at a much more competitive level of baseball.

However, now surrounded by a large number of skilled players, Eijun struggles to find his place on the team. He declares that he will one day become the team's ace, but that's only if fellow first year Satoru Furuya doesn't take the title first, with his breakneck fastballs that earn him a coveted spot on the starting roster. With the addition of these talented new players to an already powerful lineup, the Seidou baseball team aims to become the best in Japan, facing off against a number of formidable foes that stand in their way.

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
There's a certain finesse in the way all the characters in this anime have to prove themselves at their favorite sport. Overall, characters psychology and in-game tension is here one of the best you could find in an anime sport, but that's it : for the rest, this anime is way deserved by a pitiful story, pretty much non-existent, and full useless and unbearable flashbacks to know more about characters that will STILL lose at the end (most of the time). You want something original and crazy ? Go for One Outs, that's way better.

This is my first review but the ratings REALLY displease me.
Please excuse my ranting ^^
--no spoilers--

Pre-review Ranting: [This anime just messes with the anime rating standard. I dropped it multiple times and had to watch the last few episodes recently in order to catch up with "Season 2"(which sadly follows the same drill).
I seperated the ranting from the review, so feel free to only read the review :)]

General Review: [The story and the art aren't bad, and the characters are actually interesting, but the pace the anime is progressing, especially while in matches, is really annoying.. The main character is hardly considered the ...
