posted on by Egan Loo
A television anime adaptation of Yūji Terajima's Ace of Diamond baseball manga has been green-lit for this fall. The anime's official website has opened, along with its official Twitter account. More information such as the cast and broadcast stations will be announced later.
The story follows Eijun Sawamura, a pitcher who joins an elite school with a brilliant catcher named Kazuya Miyuki. Together with the rest of the team, they strive for Japan's storied Kōshien championships through hard work and determination.
Terajima launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2006, and Kodansha published the 35th volume last month. The manga won the shōnen category of the 34th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2010.
