Ace of Diamond Season 3: Premiere Date, Plot, Characters

It does not really matter if you’re a baseball fan or not; ‘Ace of Diamond’ is one sports anime that you’ll absolutely love if you’re looking for something motivational. It follows a pretty simple storyline where a team of underdogs aims to rise to the top. It also explores individual storylines of all the main characters and develops them accordingly. But one thing that really stands out about it is its element of suspense. Most sports anime become quite predictable because the primary teams usually become winners in one way or the other. But in this one, the main team loses some of the matches.

Even the individual stories of the characters head into directions you cannot initially predict. And the baseball game scenes have also been perfectly executed. Coming from two of the greatest anime studios, Madhouse and Production I.G, the animation is just flawless and gives off the perfect shounen vibe. Overall, ‘Ace of Diamond’ is one of the best sports anime out there and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys watching uplifting shows.

Ace of Diamond Characters:

Eijun Sawamura

Eijun, who was once a pitcher at the Akagi Middle School, now plays for the prestigious Seidou High School. He’s a left handed pitcher and also bats with his left. His pitches are known to be unusually flawless and till date, no one has been able to imitate his style. His batting isn’t all that great and even his outfield defense is generally poor. Whatever the odds may be, he always shows a lot of spirit and never gives up. Apart from playing baseball, he also enjoys catching beetles and watching sumo wrestling.

Satoru Furuya

Satoru is a right handed power pitcher who also plays for Seidou High School. He is quite tall for his age and has medium length straight black hair. Though he always has a lethargic look on his face and stays disconnected with the people around him, his pitches are so fast that no one even likes to play against him. He puts a lot of effort into his pitching and that’s why he expects his catchers to do the same. He has a lot of respect for Miyuki because he’s one of those few players who are able to catch his pitches.
