This year's 14th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine is announcing a second season for the 2013 television anime Ace of Diamond on Wednesday. It is titled Daiya no A ~Second Season~ (Ace of Diamond: Second Season). The magazine also previews an uncolored key visual for the new season.
The new season will premiere on TV Tokyo, TV Osaka, TV Aichi, TV Hokkaido, TV Setouchi, and TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting on April 6 at 6:00 p.m., and will air every Monday in the same time slot. Other channels will then run the new season, and Niconico and other services will also stream the anime.
Ace of Diamond is an anime adaptation of Yūji Terajima's manga of the same name. The story of the original manga begins with 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.
