Ace of the Diamond - Season 2 - Episode 15 - Q&A

So, who do you think is the best player on Ugumori?

The pitcher is definitely the best player on the team (he's wearing the "1") but #8 is also dangerous. He's the fast kid with the dopey face that steals bases really well. Between the two of them, I think they're really getting into Furuya's head, and that worries me. As we all know, Furuya is a moody player, and I don't want to see him off of his game...again. 

Who do you think is the best player on Seido?


Right now, Miyuki. Probably, always Miyuki. I know he doesn't have the "1" on his back, but he's great on offense and defense, he's the team captain, and he's starting to lead the team well. He said the right things to Furuya in the last episode to get his head back in the game, and he came through with some great at bats when the team needed it most.

Is there a such thing as a power curveball?

There's a guy on YouTube showing how to throw one, but it doesn't look right to me. It doesn't even have that Naruto Rasengan effect.

What do you want or predict will happen next?

I want Sawamura to get back in the game. He's my favorite player and I love how his great pitching affects the team. Furuya is a good pitcher too, but I don't like him nearly as much as Furuya. I predict that he's going to start messing up again, and Sawamura will be forced to take the mound again. But I kind of want that to happen and don't want that to happen. I don't want to see anyone do poorly, even if that means my favorite player gets to return to the lineup.
