The YouTube livestream celebrating the Diamond no Ace anime series' tenth anniversary and Sawamura's birthday announced on Saturday that an anime sequel to the Diamond no Ace: Act II (Ace of Diamond Act II) television anime is in production. Original creator Yuuji Terajima drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement (pictured).

The original Diamond no Ace manga ran in Kodansha's Weekly Shounen Magazine from May 2006 to July 2015 and was compiled into 47 volumes. Terajima began serializing the Diamond no Ace Act II (Ace of Diamond Act II) sequel manga the following month and ended its 16-year run in October 2022. The fourth and fifth volumes bundled two original video anime episodes in 2016.

Production I.G and Madhouse adapted Diamond no Ace into two anime seasons in Fall 2013 and Spring 2015. Crunchyroll streamed both seasons with subtitles.

The Diamond no Ace: Act II (Ace of Diamond Act II) television anime produced by Madhouse aired in 52 episodes from Spring 2019 to Winter 2020. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime with subtitles.

Kodansha Comics USA licensed the original manga in English and began publishing it digitally in March 2017. The 47th and final volume was released on January 9.

@Azuchi Is it also quite an old sports shonen? I heard about this work, but never tried to watch it because I don’t know much about baseball.

@RobertBobert Hajime no Ippo is a boxing anime. Also has comedy and nice fights.

@Azuchi I'm familiar with Hajime, I was asking how classic Ace is. Because as far as I can see, the manga appeared in the 00s, but the anime only came out in the 10s.

I have watched this series several times and each time it made me smile and feel sad. I am positively surprised my favorite sports series is getting another season, all I can do is wait until they announce the exact date.

- NOT your usual shounen anime
- Pure comedy? DEAD WRONG
- Treat Gintama as SoL/weekly sitcom especially earlier seasons
- Ep 1 & 2 are for manga readers
- BIG patience for its 'slow' start

@RobertBobert I don't necessarily know what you mean by classic, but you don't need any knowledge of baseball to watch it. I watched it without knowing anything about the sport and so did my brothers and we all love it. I would highly recommend it, it's got lots of great characters with good character development, and lots of hype moments, which I think hit more because the sad moments are sadder compared to other sports anime.

@PixelWater I meant the best genre works, in this case sports shonens. My knowledge of this is zero, since all my experience is limited to watching a couple of episodes of the Major sequel.
