THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Wow, not bad. Those were some decent hits out the field.

The match had spirit though imo with fans and hell, even cheerleaders. I thought the latest episode got the pacing going pretty well. OST worked somewhat okay I guess. Loved those sliding plays though.

Bummer I thought Sawamura was going to pitch this ep. Lol @ the other team's coach treating it like a war. Sawamura seems like he might have become better though, I wonder what Chris taught him. Can't wait to see him pitch in the next episode!

Wow pretty awesome episode. The soundtrack songs for the songs while the match is going on fits well. Im still way too used to the Yamato themes and others from Oofuri, but the ones here especially that Aim and Swing one are perfect. I hope we get even more variety for the episodes. Definitely awesomely intense and wonderful Furuya shocking all.

Uff, Furuya launched excellently and could make a big difference in races. I hope in the next episode Eijun has a good reputation in his debut.

Sawamura will hopefully execute watever Chris taught him. I'm curious about what it is.

Amazing. I'm not even a huge fan of baseball, but this is slowly rising on my favorites list, a bit more and it would be top 5.

On the episode, it was quite funny how the opposition coach started off an "Art of War" and ended it with just two chapters. Well, next episode is Sawamura's pitching.

Eijun, go surprise everyone next episode! :D Lol when he said that he's only in that good of a condition every 4 years, and Haruichi was just like, as frequent as the Olympics? Would be pretty useless. But at least the coach took his appeal time seriously and is letting him pitch! Loved everyone's reaction, especially Furuya who was pretty happy with his performance so far.

Love this anime! nice episode :)
I find Furuya to be so adorable, and funny. That was quite a surprise there at the end. I'm beyond happy that Eijun will get to pitch!!!! so excited!

Very tight episode. Great pacing and timing with stills. Everybody got to show-off some appeal, and damn, that BAND.

10/10 just for the Band playing a bunch of sexy quips. - Madhouse really put effort into this, and it shows.

You really get the feeling that the anime/story/team is aiming for the long-haul.

Cast for Akikawa school!

Ishikawa Kaito-san will be play as Yo Shun Shin!

Comment from Ishikawa-san :
When I heard I can play in Diamond no A, memory from my childhood when I was playing baseball revived.

When I dubbing Shun Shin I use my passion of my heart and soul toward baseball when I was a little.

I’ll try to make out the burning heat for baseball from cold Shun Shin!

Stay tuned for next week’s broadcast! !

#bad translation sorry :p

Transported*


Ah, so Seido vs Akikawa is confirmed? Awesome, I hope it will continue until at least Seido vs Yakushi as well. But I was thinking more of a Ryuuga-esque (from KnB) voice for Yo. Well, we'll see how this goes.

not a fan of Furuya (nor hates him) BUT HE'S SO MOE WITH PINK BLUSHES WHEN RESTING AT THE DUGOUT LMAO

ahhh I feel good when things are going so smooth with Seidou at second half of this episode

idc if people's gonna hate Sawamura for being attention-seeker &/ loud, but I like him being optimistic and motivated. I can't hate such genki character

^ Same here. He is indeed loud but surprisingly, it is very adorable. I am so happy the coach finally decided to let him play. I wonder what funny things will he do this time.

Haha, it was so cute how Furuya throws very well but can't catch the ball. And the senpais are really awesome. Hit hard!!! Now, I want to see the younger pink haired brother to bat too. He is really good too.

Furuya fucking rules, but he's gonna be in trouble if he can't get at least half of those fastballs lower. The riser won't be effective if they all start in the strikezone and end up high, Miyuki knows that.

Well, this episode ended at chapter 65. There are 147 chapters translated and I believe there are somewhere around 300-something released in Japan. I don't know how long it'll go, but it can easily go above 50 episodes if we only consider the chapters translated (which means that AoD can go at least 100+ if they wanted to).

The latest chapter released in japan is 373 ^^


I see. That easily brings the episode count above 120, then. That is, of course, assuming that Madhouse/I.G. will keep doing AoD continuously.

I might have to start reading the chapters raw then. T_T

Only watching for Sawamura tbh. I need to see how he improves because he really seems like a novice even though he has natural talent.

I'm the only one who didn't feel this episode. Couldn't have any reaction with the play, it felt like it was normal. Only the scenes with Sawamura made me giggle. Next episode will definitely be better in my case.

Dat Lupin III reference

Hnnnnnnnnngggg


Strong episode. If it keeps up like this, I might bump the series up to a 7. Anyone know the song the band played after the Lupin III song?

Vengeance of everyone's grudge.

I think it has more to do with the game going their way. The coach knows that he may need him at some of the later matches, so why not give him the experience of a match now that they seem to have the game under control so he can be more prepared later on?

I started dia no ace 2 days ago and I came here in the discussion to see if I was the only one that recognised that Lupin III song... I'm glad I wasn't wrong ^^

Anyway, I don't know if you have already got the answer but the song you're talking about is "Neraiuchi" (when Miyuki is going to hit).

I don't remember if I can link something from youtube, but if you copy/past "高校野球 応援歌 1-9メドレー" you'll find a medley of baseball theme used by high school teams, if you have some interest for it, of course!

Tbh, I'm loving Miyuki more and more (if that's even possible bc I already love him too much loll) every episode! xD

Furaya has his own sense of humor, HAHA. It's just hilarious every time he can't catch the ball. ;')

I know everyone has mixed feelings about Sawamura bc of his personality and how he's always loud and talking too much but tbh I love characters like him. Can't wait for his debut next episode! :D

5/5!
