The hallowed ground of Koshien Stadium is the "field of dreams," where the ambitions of high school baseball players come true. After emerging victorious in the autumn tournament last year, Seidou High School baseball's team has finally earned the right to compete there for the first time in seven years. Beyond the spring tournament looms the battle to decide who is the best team in the nation — the Summer Koshien.

With the third-year players due to retire after the summer tournament, the team has to integrate the experience of the seniors and the potential of the newcomers to overcome familiar and new opponents alike and win the coveted national title.

Meanwhile, pitcher Eijun Sawamura is as determined as ever to earn jersey No. 1 and seize the position of "ace" from his persistent rival, Satoru Furuya. As the team prepares for their greatest challenge yet, Sawamura and Furuya carry on their struggle to lead their team to glory and become the star of the game: the true "Ace of the Diamond."

This will go over the anime series as a whole.

Anime always manages to transform the most boring ass sports into shows that are actually exciting. I actually hate watching baseball. It's really boring. I went to the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship in Omaha, which can be considered a step up from Koshien in Japanese Football. It was boring enough that I left with my friends in the middle of inning 5 and got some food.

Alas, Diamond no Ace compresses 2+ hours of baseball game time into the most exciting moments, with of course, monologues, closeups, and player perspective into each exciting of all ...

I'm not those kind of people who stay and become a fan of an animr I'm just a watcher, i have never write any riview but it need to be said. the story is somehow become more balance on this season as expected because it appear exactly like the manga but I don't know why the anime in the season is just feels very unbalanced and not right at some point. to be honest this anime is very unique because it have different approach than others anime like how the story positioning the protagonist but I don't think this is going to work at some ...

Easy, if you like a story where the autor loves to destroy the protagonist and each character one and every time like an endless loop, then you'll enjoy this series.

The whole story doesn't have a protagonist, the one who gets treated like a true one is a secondary character, the main character is constantly hated by the author.

I really don't understand how this show has such great score in MAL. The plot is pretty simple and cliche, the story goes in a loop of a constant hope-desilusion and enjoy-destroy it's plot and characters. You can enjoy a chapter and then the next one something totally ...
