Daiya no Ace Act II comicbook Vol.7

 - includes ch56 - 64

- cover: Shirasu

- Additional page at the end of ch60: Miyuki batting + Furuya & Eijun adorably staring at each other

Close-up (because this panel is so cute):

- Bonus manga featuring Chris at the university + Miyuki & Sawamura consulting each other how to reply to Chris’ question:

Daiya no Ace #6 “First Impression

Team-mate: What? Really!?

Team-mate: You’re the same age?

Team-mate: So you are a player!?

Chris: I’m 18.

Team-mate: I definitely thought you’re older than 20!! You’re too calm [for your age]!!

Team-mate: I used the honorific language to you since I thought you’re the coach!!

Team-mate: Really, *how many times have you lived before!? [*common joke in Japan you say to people who are very mature for their young age as if they are living their life for the second/third/fourth time.]

Later in the evening…

Daiya no Ace #7 “A question from Senpai

Eijun: Miyuki-senpai, look at this!! I’ve got a LINE message from Chris-senpai!
Miyuki: Hm? You’ve got that, too?
Eijun: Eh? You, too!?

Chris’ LINE message to Eijun: Sawamura, please answer honestly. How old do I look? Btw, I don’t need any jokes right now.

Chris’ email to Miyuki: Do I really look that old? My senpai use the honorific language to me… […]

Eijun: Seems like something happened to him…?
Miyuki: What are you going to reply?
Eijun: What should I reply?

Miyuki: Maybe something like “You are so calm, that’s why you don’t look like a child”?
Eijun: That sounds nice!
Miyuki: What about your reply?
Eijun: Mmmmm, maybe something like “You look 5 years younger with your hair down”?
Miyuki: Yes, that’s it!
Eijun: Yes, this is it!


- Breaking News: Miyuki is confirmed to be a flip phone user (while Eijun, Chris and probably everyone else are smartphone users.)

- Chris-senpai sent an email to Miyuki while he contacted Eijun via LINE. This means that Miyuki does not have a LINE account. Someone give miyuki a fucking smartphone and teach him how to use LINE omg he’s the captain of the seidou baseball club after all. Seriously, how can he not have a LINE account xD

Tadah~! \(^^)/

This was quite the killer, I’ve gotta say. 302 layers, guys. 302.

Like I’ve said before, I’m proud of this piece and I hope that you all enjoy this just as much as the sneak peek! (which I also edited as well!)

Under the cut, I’ll be putting a full view of 4 of the pictures above, as well as a couple of extras! ^^

Let’s not forget that Eijun Sawamura

  • is better than Miyuki in Shogi.

  • is very blunt with Miyuki and usually treats him as someone of his own age. He also has a habit of calling him by his full name. 

  • looks up to Shunpei Sanada as the kind of pitcher he wants to be.

  • read books like the Book of Five Rings, which led him to call his superiors old Japanese military ranks and switching his speech pattern to flowery language from time to time.

  • is fond of giving nicknames to his teammates. (ex. Cheetah-sama, Metabolic-senpai, Beard-senpai, Wolf Brat…LOL XD) 

  • bears a surname that shares the same Kanji character  村 (Mura)  with Okumura Koushuu ( 奥村 光舟) . (Sawamura Eijun>>  沢 栄純)

  • is a southpaw pitcher with unique timing. 

  • has a naturally flexible body with supple joints, allowing him to immediately change the pitch’s direction. (Also the reason why Kuramochi likes to practice his wrestling moves on him.) 

  • has pitched for 2 full games.

  • is quite competent with infield defense and pick-offs.

  • specializes in throwing idiosyncratic pitches.   

  • has an arsenal of pitches that includes a 4-Seam Fastball, 2-Seam Fastball, Cutter, Changeup, and Splitter.

  • unknowingly threw a Cutter to strike out Sensen’s Ace, Maki.  Now  the Cutter has become one of the key pitches within his repertoire.
  • learned the Changeup overnight. 

  • managed to piss off Mei Narumiya when he first pitched the Circle Changeup in an official game. 

  • developed the ‘Numbers’ system with Miyuki for his pitching repertoire.

  • used to struggle with control, but he has improved considerably and is able to locate pitches consistently.
  • has an unorthodox pitching form that doesn’t allow the batter to see the release point of the pitch, which consequently messes up the batter’s timing. 

  • is also surprisingly level-headed in critical situations.  He is always able to pull off amazing pitches in a pinch, which never fails to amaze Miyuki.

  • is the best “bunter” in the series, which earned him the title of “Bunt Master” or “Bunt Meijin”. He is also referred to as the “Kawai of Seidou”. This nickname is a reference to Masahiro Kawai, a former player for the Yomiuri Giants who was known for his defense and bunting skills.

Don’t forget that Eijun is more than just this silly, noisy and obnoxious guy. He is very cute and precious, and a very hard-working person. He has come a long way since he began his high school career in Seido. He’s undeniably one of the key players of the team and has improved tremendously. ヾ(:3ノシヾ)

For @daiyanerd (because i can’t decide whether to do miyu x sawa or chris x miyu, so why not the three of them in one instead, i hope you don’t mind!) — this is not an actual secret santa gift, but an appreciation one for all of the pinch hit (gifts) that you’ve made and done for @fydaiyanoace in the secret santa event, and in behalf of my partner admin, we are very grateful and thankful from the bottom of our hearts ♡ i hope you like this! thank you again!!

Japanese Sawamura shippers in a nutshell

This tweet by a Japanese Daiya fan is so damn accurate

😔 I think Eijun’s destiny is Koushuu…

😈 Excuse you, Eijun’s destiny is Miyuki.

😐 Guess what, Furuya is Eijun’s rival aka destiny.

😎 Okay, but the one who guided Eijun’s destiny was Chris-senpai.

😍 You know, between Eijun and Kuramochi there’s a bond that is even stronger than destiny.

🔨😇 Everyone, calm down! Calm down!
