The wraparound jacket band on Yūji Terajima's 40th Ace of Diamond manga volume reported last month that the Ace of Diamond anime series will ship in 13 DVD volumes, each containing four episodes, for a total of 52 episodes. The first DVD volume will ship on May 21 for 3,800 yen (about US$38).
Madhouse and Production I.G are producing the baseball series. The story follows Eijun Sawamura (Ryota Ohsaka), a pitcher who joins an elite school with a brilliant catcher named Kazuya Miyuki (Takahiro Sakurai). Together with the rest of the team, they strive for Japan's storied Kōshien championships through hard work and determination.
The anime premiered in Japan on October 6 and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
