Media mix projects including manga, game, and anime featuring the members are also planned
"Seiyu Jr Baske 3x3 SJ3.LEAGUE," the world's first voice actress basketball league held its first press conference today in Tokyo and revealed its eight teams, including one from Beijing, China. SJ3.LEAGUE is officially certified by Japan Basketball Association (JBA), and its opening match is scheduled to be held at Minami Nagasaki Sport Center in Tokyo on September 30.
SJ3.LEAGUE's games are played under the international rule of 3x3 basketball, which has been promoted by The International Basketball Federation (FIBA). The player population of 3x3 in Japan is 1.5 million, and 450 million in the world. As a new league to contribute to the growth and expansion of Japanese basketball industry, SJ3.LEAGUE closely cooperates with JBA. Michiyoshi Minamisawa, president of major Japanese voice actor agency 81 Produce, serves as chief director.
While participating in other local leagues of 3x3 in Japan, SJ3.LEAGUE's own tournament matches by
its eight teams will be played twice a year, spring and fall. And of course, media mix projects including
manga, game, and anime featuring the members are also planned.
