The wraparound jacket band on the 14th compiled volume of "act 2" of Yūji Terajima's Ace of Diamond (Daiya no A) manga revealed on Friday that the manga will have an "important announcement" on November 25. The staff and cast of the anime adaptation will hold an "Ace of Diamond All-Star Game III" event at Tokyo's Jingu Stadium on November 25.
Voice actor Ryota Ohsaka, the voice of the lead character Eijun Sawamura in the anime, stated at an event in February that the anime will continue, although he did not say when. "The anime is not over! It will continue for sure," he said.
Terajima's original baseball manga inspired a television anime that premiered in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. A second season of the anime premiered in April 2015, and Crunchyroll also streamed the series as it aired until March 2016.
Terajima launched the baseball manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006. The manga won the shōnen category of the 34th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2010. Kodansha Comics began releasing the manga digitally in English in March 2017.
The manga has also inspired a series of stage plays, and the fifth stage play premiered in September 2017.
