After the National Tournament, the Seidou High baseball team moves forward with uncertainty as the Fall season quickly approaches. In an attempt to build a stronger team centered around their new captain, fresh faces join the starting roster for the very first time. Previous losses weigh heavily on the minds of the veteran players as they continue their rigorous training, preparing for what will inevitably be their toughest season yet.

Rivals both new and old stand in their path as Seidou once again climbs their way toward the top, one game at a time. Needed now more than ever before, Furuya and Eijun must be determined to pitch with all their skill and strength in order to lead their team to victory. And this time, one of these young pitchers may finally claim that coveted title: "The Ace of Seidou."

Diamond no Ace, a name that might not be heard as frequently as other largely popular sports shows out there. And that has always dumbfounded me. A show doing everything right, also up there as one of the best in its genre, yet still never has broke through the locks and that is evident with the relatively small amount of members it has on MAL compared to other popular sport shows.

A collaboration of Madhouse and Production I.G., two of arguably the greatest ever studio's in this industry. With loads of experience behind them and even highly in the sports genre (Madhouse: Hajime no Ippo, One read more

No spoilers...

You're probably thinking of an 7/10 a bit of a low rating, but I'm taking in the account of 5/10 being an average. That, I consider an exceptional score. I also currently follow MLB (Major League Baseball) and used to play baseball. I just want you to keep all that in mind.

I first thought the 2nd season will be like the 1st season, this was going to be a long drag and have a pretty cliche/predictable story. This is considering having to go through the previous season’s 75 episodes, but still enjoyed it enough for the nostalgia and epic moments.

Boy, I was so wrong.

Holy hot damn, this anime just keeps surprising me. I'll tell you what, the end of this season had me so stressed that my heart was beating as though I'd just run the mile. I'm gonna try to keep this review short because my review of the first season was pretty through in explaining why this anime is so good, but I'm gonna hit some of the points that got better for me this season or things I noticed more.

This go around, I was really able to appreciate how the music was working to further the plot. I don't believe the main pieces were changed read more

Starting this series was an impulsive decision, but I don’t regret it. Even though I’ve never watched a real baseball game and the sport is non-existent in my country, I quickly grew to like it.

*Contains NO spoilers*

Characters - 8/10
Its dynamic characters are Diamond no Ace’s (DnA) strong suit. They're all unique - in character design, personality, and purpose. I fell in love with most of them from the first season and that didn't change during this one. The plot makes you admire the players' efforts and camaraderie.

The start of this season was bittersweet for me because the Third Years (who I loved and named read more
