Diagonal Sudoku is one of my favorite Sudoku types. Rule of unique numbers falling on the main diagonals makes Diagonal Sudoku very interesting Sudoku type. 
These two Diagonal Sudoku puzzles are very interesting. The theme of the first Diagonal Sudoku puzzle is the pentomino letter W and for the second Diagonal Sudoku, I tried to create the pentomino letter F. However at the end, I was forced to add few digits in the center which broke the theme. However, both of these Diagonal Sudoku puzzles have very interesting solutions and I am posting these puzzles in the Fun With Sudoku Series as 353rd and 354th Sudoku Puzzles in this Series.
