How to Watch the Diamond no Ace Series in Order

By Samona Punjabi / April 24, 2022

An endearing and interesting sports anime about baseball, Diamond no Ace, is one series which American fans will especially enjoy. The series follows a baseball pitcher, Eijun Sawamura, who has an unusual pitching technique. Wanting to go with his friends to a local high school to continue his baseball journey, Sawamura is soon approached by a scout from a prestigious school that takes baseball very seriously.

While the story has a fairly simple plot and is sometimes predictable, the characters' passion for baseball makes everything worthwhile. Upon meeting the scout from the prestigious Seidou High, Sawamura is also offered a scholarship and a chance to play in the nationals. When he visits the school for the first time, he is enamored by the school's commitment to the sport, thereby changing his entire outlook on the future.

Diamond no Ace is a typical sports shonen series but has managed to captivate its audience with the several issues the players face, on and off the pitch. Since baseball is the center of everything, it helps the characters develop, motivating them towards a goal, and teaching them important lessons about life. Fans looking to watch the series can check it out on Crunchyroll.

The recommended watching order for Diamond no Ace is its chronological order, which is the same as its release order. While the OVAs do not contribute much to the main storyline, they are really good side stories, so we recommend fans avoid skipping them. In addition, the series does not have a lot of fillers. However, they aren't completely irrelevant to the main plotline and should be watched for a complete experience.
