Average Rating

Ren Mihashi was the ace of his middle school's baseball team, but due to his poor pitching, they could never win. Constant losses eventually lead to his teammates bullying him and reached the point where his teammates no longer tried to win, causing Mihashi to graduate with little self-esteem. As a result, Mihashi decides to go to a high school in a different prefecture where he has no intention of playing baseball. Unfortunately, upon his arrival at Nishiura High, he is dragged into joining their new team as the starting pitcher. Although unwilling at first, Mihashi realizes that this is a place where he will be accepted for who he is; with help from the catcher Takaya Abe, he starts to have more confidence in his own abilities. Abe, seeing the potential in Mihashi, makes it a goal to help him become a pitcher worthy of being called an ace.

A “non-dramatized” Sports show that makes it feel like I am watching a real game of baseball, but for once I care about the outcome.


Abe x Mihashi. No regrets.


So so so cute and fluffy. Brings more of the social aspect to sports anime which I appreciated a lot


Lots of heartwarming scenes, and as my first baseball anime this was the best start I could ever ask for :) made me love the sport so much!


Good boys play baseball and it’s very sweet and touching.


Made me like sports which is SUPER out of character for someone such as myself. Twas a SUPER adorable baseball anime that isn’t overthetop


WATCH. You will not be disappointed.



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
