These girls are ready to make a league of their own in the upcoming baseball anime Tamayomi. Adapted from the manga created by Mountain Pukuichi, the story follows Yomi Takeda, a girl who played baseball as a pitcher in middle school, but who grew discouraged with the sport after no one could catch her “magic ball” pitch. When Yomi enrolls in Shinkoshigaya High School in Saitama Prefecture, she reunites with her childhood friend, Tamaki Yamazaki, who has become a highly skilled catcher. With a renewed passion for the sport, Yomi and Tamaki team up with the intent of taking their high school baseball club to the national championship.
The anime will be directed by Toshiki Fukushima and produced by Studio A Cat. The manga began serialization in Houbunsha’s seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara Forward in April 2016. It has been collected in six tankōbon volumes. Tamayomi TV anime is set to air on Japanese TV in April 2020.
