Did someone say “tennis?”
Earlier today, Crunchyroll announced that they will stream tennis anime Teekyu 6. The short-form series will occupy the same time slot as previous seasons, when it kicks off on October 5 at 10:30AM Pacific (1:30PM Eastern).
Teekyu 6 is the sixth season of the Teekyu anime franchise. The series, which began airing in 2012, is based on Roots and Piyo’s comedy manga of the same name. Shin Itagaki is filling a triple role as writer, director, and character designer for the project at studio Mappa.
The confirmed voice cast on the title is as follows:
- Marimo Bandō: Kana Hanazawa
- Nasuno Takamiya: Kyōko Narumi
- Kanae Shinjō: Suzuko Mimori
- Yuri Oshimoto: Yui Watanabe
- Anenkofu Kondō: Eri Kitamura
- Udonko Kondō: Kaori Ishihara
- Tomarin: Yui Ogura
Teekyu 6 will be available to subscribers in North America, South America, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden when it kicks off.
Crunchyroll describes the show as follows:
The zany and wacky adventures of the girls in the Kameido High School Tennis Club continue in season 6 of Teekyu! It’s questionable really how much tennis they actually play, but when the girls speak faster than chipmunks and jokes and references thrown out at the speed of light, maybe that doesn’t really matter.
The cast all return to reprise their roles, including Kana Hanazawa as Marimo Bando, Kyoko Narumi as Nasuno Takamiya, Suzuko Mimori as Kanae Shinjo, Yui Watanabe as Yuri Oshimoto, Kaori Ishihara as Udonko Kondo, Yui Ogura as Tomarin, and Eri Kitamura as Anenkofu Kondo. The voice actresses all sing the opening song as well, “Earth Star Dream”.
