"The Prince of Tennis" Anime to Launch New OVA Series "BEST GAMES!!" in 2018

First part "Tezuka vs Atobe" will get limited theatrical run next year

As the second film project following the cheer screenings for the 2005 film Futari no Samurai The First Game (December 2017) and the 2011 film Eikoku-shiki Teikyu-jo Kessen! (February 2018), The Prince of Tennis anime franchise based on Takeshi Konomi's sport manga series will launch a new OVA series "BEST GAMES!!" in 2018.


The new OVA will animate the highly popular matches selected from the long-running series that will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2019. The first entry is the match between Kunimitsu Tezuka (Seishun Academy) and Keigo Atobe (Hyoutei Academy), which was held as the first round at the Kanto Regional Finals. The match was previously chosen as the main theme for the "All TeniPri Museum in Kyoto" event held in October 2017. The first anime episode from "BEST GAMES!!" is also scheduled to get limited theatrical run in 2018.



This is how the cheer screening is held at the theater.
