The second series for Ace of the Diamond is going strong since it began this spring and moves into its third cour as it looks like it’s going to be running for quite some time to come. Because of that, the show has now added a few more actors to the list to deal with upcoming introductions and expansions in the show. The latest additions bring us a rookie voice actor with Fukushi Ochiaki as Koji Tamaki, the always wonderful Jouji Nakata as Sakaki Eijirou, and finally Shunsuke Takeuchi as Yuuki Masashi.
The second season was moved in Japan to a time period that will garner it more attention with audiences there, which means simulcast episodes will now start appearing on Monday’s, at 6:30am ET.
Plot concept: 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!
