YMMV: Diamond no Ace
  • Arc Fatigue: The game against Inashiro Tech is several volumes long. It's made even worse when after all the tension build-up, they lose cuz they blew the save.
  • Bishonen Jump Syndrome: The character design certainly evokes this, especially compared to the other sports anime that aired in the same season, Yowamushi Pedal. However, in comparison in other sports animes, it isnt much.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome: Since this is a sport anime, there a quite a few.
    • Masuko's solo double play during the Seido vs Yakushi game.
    • Miyuki gets quite a few but the way he predicted the catchers throughts when he was at bat against Akikawa stands out. Not only did he figure out what they agreed on but he also hit the ball and left a shell shocked Shunshin behind. He's not called a genius for nothing.
    • Furuya getting six strike outs in a row in his first official game also counts.
  • Ho Yay: The boys seem to be passionate about each other.
  • Launcher of a Thousand Ships: Eijun, Eijun, Eijun; there's Eijun x Chris, Eijun x Furuya, Eijun x Miyuki, Eijun x Haruichi, Eijun x Wakana, Eijun x Haruno, and the list goes on.
    • Haruichi as well; Haruichi x Eijun, Haruichi x Furuya, Haruichi x Ryousuke, and the list goes on, it also doesn't help Haruichi that he's a Dude Looks Like a Lady.
  • One True Threesome: Eijun, Furuya, and Haruichi; extra points since whenever Haruichi compliments one of the them, the other gets jealous and fuels their rivalry.
    • Eijun, Furuya, and Miyuki.
    • Eijun, Miyuki, and Chris.
    • Just find three characters that are close and they fit this.
