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!!
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 phoneuser (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
Terajima’s comment on Miyuki & Sawamura’s first meeting scene
Here’s the infamous interview where Terajima-Sensei said that Miyuki & Sawamura’s first meeting scene was like a romantic manga.
― How did you come up with the other characters aside from Sawamura?
Miyuki is the character who made Sawamura think “I want to play baseball with him, even if that means being separated from my friends”. Miyuki has profound knowledge of baseball as well as the ability to bring out the pitcher’s talent. He’s supposed to be the type of guy Sawamura has never met in life before and thus
makes him think “I somehow can’t get him out of my head…”. So if you think about it, it’s actually the same as the “first meeting” scenes in a romantic manga. (lol) […] - Terajima Yuji (Official DnA Guide Book)
So, may I introduce,
Miyuki “the type of guy Sawamura has never met in life before” Kazuya
and Sawamura “I somehow can’t get him out of my head…
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
The well-known “Ugh, he’s so mean, I hate him, but…. I love him” shojo manga trope.
God bless Miyusawa and Terajima-sensei ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
In this week’s Daiya… We see the senpai preparing the grounds for the next day, leaving the first years to have some free time. We learn that the second string won 4 matches and lost 1, of which 2 of the victories were influenced by Okumura’s game calling and batting. The first string returns back to the dorms, and Miyuki and Watanabe head to the coach’s office with the coaching team, to find Ochiai waiting for them there. Ochiai show Oota the article written about Seidou’s victory over Hakuryuu, implying that Seidou’s Golden Age has come with two strong pitchers. Kataoka comments that Sawamura was lucky since several runners got to third base and the score could have been different, but he is looking forward to the next time. Ochiai then asks about Furuya and when Oota doesn’t know how to reply, Miyuki comes out and says that Furuya is the same, but his emotions are getting ahead of him, he is using too much power, and his pitches are affected when there are runners. Kataoka comments that what might be important to Furuya at the moment isn’t baseball but his daily life, as his field of vision is narrowed and he can only see the huge goal before him, but has no idea how to reach it. It might help for him to take a look and question everything in his daily routine and see how they can help him reach his goal. Kataoka then tells Miyuki to prepare for a pitcher/catcher meeting in the morning and dismisses him.
Thereafter, Ochiai decides to help out with the physical part of the training seeing how Kataoka is looking at the psychological aspects. He tells Kataoka that the second string has some good players, that the players are all working for the numbers which will give them some trouble in terms of selecting the final members of the team, and aside from that, the only thing they need to worry about are any injuries. He tells the coaching team that they should, or rather will make this the Golden Age. We then see the players go back to their rooms and Ono confronts Furuya, asking him if the third years are so unreliable he feels that he has to carry the team himself. He says that unlike Miyuki, he was at Jingu with him and they lost because he couldn’t stop his pitches, but he doesn’t plan for Furuya to play all on his own, even though Furuya might mock him for saying such a thing. Then Sawamura and Asada head to the canteen where they see Okumura and Seto watching the recording of the Seidou-Hakuryuu match and Okumura tells Sawamura to keep quiet on the mound instead of trying to gain popularity with the audience.
reason #8925724395392752527925 i prefer the localized versions of the ace attorney games to the normal versions:
Phoenix not knowing how to drive makes perfect sense and is reasonable in the Japanese version due to cars being a luxury/not too necessary in Japan but Phoenix not knowing how to drive in the localized version just makes him even more of a human disaster and I like him better that way
(I think I’ll need to keep this short, but I swear i have so many of them, jesus)

Little boys doing the Mae-ken dance because SAWAMURA DOES IT ALL THE TIME, simply SAWAMURA BEING ROLE MODEL FOR LITTLE ONES
what she means:
in the manga ace of diamond, more widely known as daiya no ace, miyuki kazuya is introduced as a catcher who is captivated by sawamura's displeasure against the lack of camaraderie shown by azuma kiyokuni, going so far as to volunteer to be a catcher for a guy he's never met. in fact, the mangaka yuji terajima has admitted in an interview that sawamura and miyuki's first meeting was incredibly shoujo-esque in nature. miyuki initially wants sawamura to get hit so he'd loosen up, but sawamura's basic instincts causes miyuki to switch tactics. he then goes on to say "i'm pretty interested in you! so let's take out that monster together as a couple!" which is obviously a teasing joke but the fact that his mind even wanders there as a joke makes one wonder if his mind was purely on baseball. finally, before they resume their challenge against azuma, miyuki calls sawamura partner and sawamura is clearly blown away by the simple term. eventually, the two manage to work together to beat azuma and sawamura is enchanted by the pitches that he threw that day, going as far to state "those pitches would change my life" in the first chapter. miyuki inspired sawamura to join the seidou baseball team as sawamura wants to play baseball with someone as incredible as miyuki. throughout the series, it's clear that miyuki and sawamura are attuned to each other in a way that no other battery could ever be. they both have an incredible level of respect for each other on the field; sawamura is completely faithful to miyuki's catcher sense while miyuki is constantly astounded and amazed by how much sawamura is growing. the only time that sawamura has shaken off a sign from miyuki has been to get over his yips, and miyuki understands him perfectly to ask for the pitch that eventually wins them the game. additionally, miyuki is very touchy with sawamura, constantly slinging an arm around his shoulders or giving him tiny, physical encouragements/comfort. the latter can be seen when he presses his hand against the small of sawamura's back when it is revealed that sawamura has yips, which is one example of many. furthermore, in the chapter where sawamura overcomes his yips, miyuki refers to sawamura as a sprout of a great big "eye-catching flower". he then goes on to state that sawamura's "flower" is "small for now, but very strong." "what kind of flower will bloom in the future is up to you." this demonstrates that miyuki has great faith in sawamura's potential and believes that he will be able to catch up to furuya or even surpass him to become the ace. in conclusion, it is completely devastating to see sawamura and miyuki do a great big mating dance around each other when one of them should just bite the bullet and ask the other out.
I’ve been really thinking… Is there a fic that exists wherein:
Miyuki takes Sawamura for granted. Like he just always believed that Sawamura will just always choose him above anyone else. And then Okumura just suddenly pops into their life. Unannounced. Then he later notices that Sawamura is starting to spend more and more time with Okumura. That Sawamura never asks him to catch for him anymore. But it can’t be helped since he needs to catch for Furuya more. Then one day while Miyuki was heading for Sawamura’s room to invite him to practice his pitches with him, Miyuki sees Sawamura leave his room. He calls out to him but then Okumura also leaves Sawamura’s room and the two looked so happy discussing whatever with each other.
Miyuki suddenly clutches his chest. Thinks, ‘Oh. This must’ve been how Sawamura always feels whenever I dismiss his invitations.’
“most likely… i won’t be able to forget that game for my entire life. i know our inexperience, i also know that our opponent’s strong. more than anything else, this is the first time i feel baseball’s frightening. although i feel sorry for the retired 3rd years… we still have another year to get out revenge. if we are doing it, i want the results to matter the most. i want us to be ravenous for victory until the very end.”
happiest birthday to seidou’s captain, miyuki kazuya! (11.17) ♡
“Dear diary, it is I, Sawamura Eijun, aka Future Ace of the Baseball World, writing again!
Something good happened today. KaKazu Miyuki finally k..kisssed me when I asked for it!! That’s a step in the right direction if I do say so myself!! Maybe if I stick to him and ask him to catch for me nonstop like that he would eventually cave in for baseball too???? Well, won’t know if we don’t try eh. Hehe. I, SAWAMURA EIJUN, will make that bastard my slave yet muhaha!
WISH ME LUCk!!
P.S. If people call Ka him a genius, does that make me a super genius? Master genius? Lord genius???“
- miyuki DOES hum sometimes - miyuki’s humming is a++++ (sorry im biased) - he loves to hum when he cooks (when alone ofc) - but what he doesnt know is that eijun heard him once and always tries his best to catch him humming w/o him knowing since then - he still remembers one of his mom’s songs (a gentle one, like the one u sing before bedtime) and love to hum it from time to time - every time he hums that song it reminds him of his mom and then eijun - miyuki doesnt hum when he listens to music w his earphone tho
IT’S JUST the second week of the semester
but to Fumie it already felt like a month has passed. A lot of things already
happened in a short period of time. She got herself involve in scenarios that
she never wished to be in at this time of her life.
She received a confession, got into a
forced relationship that only lasted for two days, got into a fight with a
famous young actor and now being challenged by her producer. All of this didn’t
give her leisure to rest during the weekend.
Fumie is walking down the slope from her home
when she gave out a deep sigh. She agreed with Haruna’s challenge but until now
she hasn’t thought of anything to succeed with the challenge. She searched for
information about the twins on the internet and as expected, Natsu outnumbered
Fuyu in terms of data. He is widely-known anyway; he even got an international
fanbase. There are a lot of facts and trivia about him in the internet. On the
other hand, Fuyu is just known as a rookie model with striking looks.
One of the most important things you should know is that, OZAWA REN IS THE PERFECT SAWAMURA EIJUN XD
He truly is. Our sunshine child brought to life on stage. It’s splendid T-T
And then, WADA TAKUMA!!!
I feel in love with this man. Like the first time I saw him act out as Miyuki, BOOM goes my heart. I was a goner. I just–CANT. He’s the perfect Miyuki Kazuya. Truly he is T-T
These two are my personal favourites. But, rest assure. The other characters within the live was just as amazing. They were brilliant. I’m–honestly lost for words. Just PLEASE WATCH IT!!! YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED.
