But everything changes when a scout unexpectedly invites him to Tokyo's prestigious Seidou High School after seeing the potential in his unusual pitching style. Encouraged by his teammates, Eijun accepts the offer, ready to improve his skills and play at a much more competitive level of baseball.

However, now surrounded by a large number of skilled players, Eijun struggles to find his place on the team. He declares that he will one day become the team's ace, but that's only if fellow first year Satoru Furuya doesn't take the title first, with his breakneck fastballs that earn him a coveted spot on the starting roster. With the addition of these talented new players to an already powerful lineup, the Seidou baseball team aims to become the best in Japan, facing off against a number of formidable foes that stand in their way.

I need to find me some people that watch/read this, if it doesn't get any attention I don't think it's worth making a manga thread for :azusad:

Y e s ma'am. The only sport anime i would say I don't like as much as others is Kuroko no Basket
However Haikyuu, Ippo, Diamond no Ace, all greatness. I hope to add Slam Dunk to that list soon~
It has the fun in- and outside team interactions just like Haikyuu, a main rivalry team and within the group itself as well. All characters are likeable as well, and ofc lastly, the matches can HYPE too. I didn't think I'd ever like baseball lmao
Oh.. and the 3rd years.. hehh.
AND U GOT THIS GUY

I‘ve actually enjoyed baseball in person... (have you seen those uniforms? lmao) so I guess I should get to watching it.

I've always known it to be a big thing in both the US and Japan, and I know it from games like Wii Sports or just TV. And yes I love those uniforms hehe. However I never really bothered with it lmao, most I've done is eeeeh, soft ball. I thought the only fun part was batting but honestly pitching seems so cool after watching the anime, it all comes down to technique
The main guy is a left handed pitcher btw!

Ohh very nice! A southpaw. Sounds even more interesting. I’ll definitely check it out in a bit. I’ve gotta catch up on a few shows. But since some aren’t airing right now, this’ll work. ^_^

episodes 1-2
okay I’m still watching the second one but dang it jumps right into the innuendo doesn’t it? Like they’ve got Ei-chan blushing at our catcher calling him his partner already and all dazed out looking at pictures of him in a magazine. Hilarious. Plus poor guy’s friends just will not give him a break. I really like their personalities. Good stuff it draws you right in from jump.I finished the second episode and was not prepared for those tears. Omg. Not fair. Why am I crying so early?!

Oh right it is for all three seasons. I wasn’t sure. It’s your thread. I can totally do no spoilers. Just finished the third episode and they’re putting him through the ringer! What the heck man?! This is funny and messed up. He’s definitely going to grow as a player. And I called it! His pitches are breaking balls. I didn’t say it on here but in my head I was thinking it.
