With Seidou up by three runs, we enter the top of the ninth.
What They Say:
“The Winning Shot”
I want to pitch to that mitt again… A meeting with catcher Kazuya Miyuki changed the 15-year-old Eijun Sawamura’s life. He said goodbye to all his friends and knocked upon the door of Seidou, a prestigious baseball school, intent on testing his own strength. There, he met many proud baseball players who were betting everything on the sport! A classic tale, yet new and fresh. All the emotion and excitement of the popular baseball manga is at last coming to television in the form of an anime!

As we reenter the world of Ace of the Diamond, it’s the top of the ninth inning and Yakushi is three runs down with their 7-8-9 batters coming up. If any one of them gets on base, doesn’t get picked off, and doesn’t hit into a double play, their power hitter Raichi will be up. This would be the first matchup between the ace pitcher of one team against the ace batter of another. It can only be exciting if it happens.
