New anime premiering on April 2 listed with 52 episodes

The official website for the anime adaptation of Yūji Terajima's Ace of Diamond Act II (Daiya no A Act II) sequel manga revealed three more cast members on Sunday.

The official website is also listing that the anime will have nine home video releases. The first volume will have three episodes, volumes 2-8 will each have six episodes, and volume 9 will have seven episodes, for a total of 52 episodes.

The anime will premiere on April 2.

The anime will feature a returning cast, and other new cast members include Ayumu Murase as Kaoru Yui and Tasuku Hatanaka as Hirofumi Asada. Glay will perform the anime's opening theme song.

Terajima's original Ace of Diamond baseball manga inspired a television anime that premiered in 2013, and Crunchyroll streamed the 75-episode series as it aired in Japan. Ace of Diamond: Second Season premiered in April 2015, and Crunchyroll also streamed the 51-episode series as it aired.

Terajima launched the manga in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2006. He ended the first part of the manga in January 2015, and Kodansha published 47 volumes for the manga. Terajima then launched Ace of Diamond Act II in August 2015. The fourth and fifth manga volumes bundled anime DVDs in 2016.

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.
