The 2nd season for Diamond no Ace keeps the hope of winning a ticket to national tournament alive!

Story: Like almost every sport anime I have seen the goal is very simple indeed. (Baby Steps, Prince of Tennis) Still the story keeps surprising by different factors which are common in real life, not everything can go as planned. This is exactly why Diamond no Ace gives this refreshing "slice-off" life feeling. Even though the story isn't that awesome, they manage to perform so well. Main protagonists are pitcher Sawamura Eijun, Furuya Satoru and catcher Miyuki Kazuya, but because of this is about baseball a team sport read more

Story: I'm just going to make synopsis very short and say that Satoru Fujinuma possesses some kind of paranormal ability to predict bad results/future.
Because of the ability the story is told in different so called "universes" and it also has some little fragments of past. (Like very short ones)

Edited: 5/March/2016, some grammar errors fixed.

As someone who has seen the original FMA I can certainly convince that FMA Brotherhood was presented in much better and effective way.

Story: FMA: Brotherhood did very well without leaving any difficult thoughts about "plot-holes" at all. Brotherhood has a well-made continuous story which ofc has some flashbacks so the viewer gets more source to the character backgrounds and can understand them better. The smartest thing they did in this story in my opinion is the ending. They applied their own "Alchemy" -law and took advantage of it. Ending doesn't have to be a tragic to be good -
