    Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima



    Summary: High school baseball manga. Teamed up with an elite catcher, pitcher Sawamura Sakai leaves his high school in the country to attend the catcher's high school.

    Serialization: 2006-present
    Serialized in Weekly Shonen Magazine (Its a Kodansha manga so it can't be found at Mangahelpers)

    Chapters 1-10 can be read on online viewing sites like Mangafox and Mangavolume.

    The rest can be found at Aozora no Kumo scans. They are currently doing regular scans of the series.

    Really good series. If you like Ahiru no Sora or Area no Kishi, you will probably be a fan of this series.

    I've liked what has been scanlated so far but it's a slow paced series with a slow rate of release online. Hard to get a feel for it. Definitely well written, the characters are interesting. Not a huge fan of the art; well drawn but almost to stereotypically Shonen Magazine. The character design looks a lot like Bloody Monday's. Over all a good series that seems like it will keep getting better and better.

    Chapters 20-22 came out today!

    I like how the main character is going to the super elite school instead of fighting against them like in most shonen sports manga. Main character is pretty typical of most Magazine sports manga, but I really like him. I look forward to future scans.

    The protagonist might be typical of shounen manga but he's lovable in a goofy kind of way.

    I always find shounen characters lacking, but this story's characters are very promising. And so is the pacing, fast but not hurrying and most importantly NO SAPPY ROMANCE.... Well so far anyway.

    Can't wait for future releases

    Ps: I'm addicted to it atm XD

    Re: Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima

    This is probably worth sharing here. Diaya no Ace is getting an anime this fall. Credits to Netorare who posted the link originally in the Weekly Shonen Magazine thread in the Otaku Shoten section.

    So, anyone excited about this? I know I am! An interesting point Kaiten brought up in the previous thread was how long the series will be. I don't mind if its not ridiculously long covering all the available material but just one cour would be disappointing.

    Also had to bump this old thing

    Re: Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima

    I'm too excited for this. So glad it landed an anime.
    I feel like a hipster being one of the not so many Westerners who will know this manga before the anime is released lol.
    I've been expecting an anime for a while though, it does run in the same magazine as Code Breaker and Fairy Tail after all.

    Will it be a 26ep. Seasonal? Or an On-going?

    ^We don't know how long it will be just yet but seeing as how it is a joint project, I'm crossing my fingers for at least 50 episodes.

    50 episodes? That's an Annual!!
    But they don't really make annuals anymore. Haven't seen a 50-56 episode anime in years.

    I'm only on Chapter 93 and the Volume just came out and the people who scan it are doing a great job atm with releases.
    But I love the Slam Dunk inspired route but the author made it original by having Furuya not so perfect and Sawamura far from crap.
    So far its not been ruined by the classical Shounen useless female character.
    I think the author could do a bit better in making characters more memorable though. I've only seen few Sports Mangas pull that off.

    Re: Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima

    This has been my read during my no internet holidays and I don't regret picking it up. As usual the idiots character but I like the fact that it is just not about the pitcher. I also like the fact that Eijun has still a long way to go, that makes the 3d year role more interesting. It seems to me that the serie give the coach character more place than in normal sport series (but I'm not an expert on those).
    As for the current match, I guess it's time Tanba come to the den, I don't see how they can win otherwise.

    Re: Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima

    Guys this is IG and Madhouse combo anime. Even if I don't read this manga (which I totally do) I would be watching for just that.

    Two monster studios. Gosh Japanese really do love their baseball, don't they? This is the best baseball manga I've seen so far, though. No wonder it'd be animated by those two.

    It reaches vol 12 with the scanlation, but in Japan it's the 29th tankobon already. There should be plenty of materials.

    Re: Ace of Diamond by Yuji Terajima

    They've really taken the Slam Dunk route though.
    Having Sawamura = Sakuragi and Furuya = Rukawa.
    Only difference is Furuya has friends whilst Rukawa liked being lonely.

    I gotta say I love how realistic it is too. Just like in Slam Dunk they're including what quite a lot of Sports mangas cut out, the heavy tears of the 3rd Years of the given Sports club after they are knocked out of their final tournament.
    Adds so much to the story for me.
