Probably one of the most undestimated anime out there, for some reason, most of otakus hates sports, especially baseball, i havent understood why that. But this is probably the anime with better script on this season. Is as good as Kill la kill, and even better than kurokos basketball, because sometimes kurokos its just slow.

If we talk about scripts, Log Horizon will be the number one, Ace of  the Diamond  2, then kill la kill.

People will say, this guy just got crazy, whats so good about an anime of sports?. To be honest, all of it. For some reason this anime reminds me of Yakitate and Naruto the first year. Its an anime you just want to keep watching to know what happens to the characters.

There is always something magical about characters wanting to be on a special team, just like watching naruto when he wanted to pass the test.

Characters are incredible powerful in  likeness, 

Episode 7 just blow my mind, what a cool new character.

This anime always lets me what will happen next? Just like Log Horizon.

Yes, I agree, I like them too And talking about spokon yowamushi pedal it was a gret surprise really a great anime/manga.
I think I recall from Lucky Star that, some Otaku don't care for Baseball because games have a tendency to preempt late night anime.  Essentially if the game runs long, it'll cut into the anime broadcast window.

Favorite thing about this anime:
There is at least one very very cool thing happening in each episode = no dry episodes.

Except for feeling embarrassed for Eijun half of the time (and rolling around, bc I just can't watch sometimes haha ;;;),
I agree, I really like it! :3
Though I can say, that I never was that interested in sport anime before and I'm not interested in irl sports,
especially now, I enjoy them the most! So far I watched/read countless 'sport' animanga this year and it just
won't stop anymore-- like I read Tenipuri in 3 days straight ""OTL
What I like about DiAce-- I'm not sure, but it's entertaining and interesting how one and the same kind of
sports - baseball - can differ so much! Because I'm also watching Oofuri atm, which is about baseball as well
and they both give a totally different impression and atmosphere, but I like them both in their very own way.
Each episode, I'm always looking out for what's coming next with DiAce, with Oofuri it's more like...I expect it
to be calm and nice and encouraging // 7 //)
Idk how it it with KuroBasu, since I didn't start watching the 2nd season yet-- but imho the setting is entirely different,
which also makes it really appealing to me. The other show I'm watching this season is Yowamushi Pedal, which is
about...bikes 'w')b

Nice ball B)

Hahaha, agreed! I don't normally like sports based anything but so far Ace of the Diamond has been extremely entertaining xD
I agree with on the fact that it is good......but I think Kuroko no baske is better. Ace of diamond is like "Major" revamped, though still good but I give kuroko the edge. Also Hajime no ippo is the best sport anime hands down in my opinion.

yeah but kuroko is really slow, i think they slowed too much each episode, past season was faster.
True i'll give you that but I still love it!!

Sports anime are great, But i cant really get into the basketball one...or free... idk why, but when i see alot of mushy friendship and cliche moments that i get from watching the first episodes, it's just not me.

Im 50/50 with Kill la Kill as well. all my friends are in love with that anime due the big "OMG, Gurren Lagann and FLCL!?" When i watch it...for some odd reason i keep falling asleep. It's not because it boring tho. It's possibly because I have no idea on what's going on and for when it time for me to read what they are saying... It's either, they talking to fast for me to catch up, something about the main story which... I dont even understand or...just complete randomness.  But i still think its pretty cool non or less.
