Yuji Terajima’s hit note Manga series “Ace of Diamonds” grabbed the heart of anime fans very soon, knowing, the plot was based on a “sports-drama” genre. With the successful launch of three seasons, it’s now time for the next one!
Plot so far
The series follows one Eijun Sawamura, a baseball pitcher with a very unusual changeup pitch that has occurred naturally. Sawamura plans to go with his friends to a local high school and play baseball to the best of their abilities. However, one scout from the prestigious Seidou High approaches him and offers him a scholarship and a chance to make it to the nationals. Sawamura decides to pay a visit to the school, and it changes his entire outlook on the future. The first season follows Seidou and their main rivals as they attempt to help the upperclassmen make it to nationals during the summer tournament. Once the summer tournament ends, the upperclassmen will be forced to retire, but how far can Sawamura help them go when he currently doesn’t have any control?
The second season continues to follow Sawamura, Furuya, Haruichi, and Miyuki as they lead a new team, along with a few returning faces, through the fall tournament. Their overly ambitious goal is to go to nationals during the fall tournament and convince Coach Kataoka that he doesn’t have to resign.
