Earlier today, the official Tamayomi anime website updated with a new key visual, as well as the show’s main staffers. We break the details down below.
The image features Yomi and Tamaki, as they share an intimate moment on the mound.
Toshinori Fukushima (Major, Beyblade the Movie: Fierce Battle) will direct the project at Studio A-Cat, with Koichi Kikuta (Fruits Basket 2019, KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) providing character designs. Touko Machida (Lucky Star, Wake Up, Girls!) is in charge of series composition for the title.
Tamayomi will hit Japanese TV in April 2020.
Mountain Pukuichi’s Tamayomi manga launched in the pages of Houbunsha’s Manga Time Kirara Forward magazine in April 2016. The series currently spans five compiled volumes, with volume six due to hit stores on September 12.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:
In her Junior High years, the pitcher Yomi Takeda was not able to get very far in a cross-school baseball tournament. Since the catcher on her team wasn’t at her level, she couldn’t use her signature move, the “Magic Throw,” and eventually regretted not being able to use it. After Junior High, she decided to stop playing baseball and went to Shin Koshigaya High School, a school without a baseball club.
There, she found her long lost childhood friend, Tamaki Yamazaki, who used to play catchball with her when they were kids. Tamaki also played baseball during her Junior High years as a catcher, and could even catch Yomi’s “Magic Throw!”
Their promise with each other during their childhood could now be fulfilled! Walking together on the road of baseball once again…
The story of the girls who love baseball will begin!
