The Japanese broadcast schedule has been revealed for number24, an upcoming original TV anime about a group of young men who form a rugby team at Kansai University.

 

 

The story of number24 follows a patchwork group of five young men who join forces to play rugby in the Kansai University rugby league: Natsusa Yuzuki, an ace player who is sidelined from playing rugby due to certain circumstances when he enters college; Ibuki Ueoka, a senior who is looking to put rugby behind him; Yasunari Tsuru, a younger student who doesn't get along with Natsusa; Yuu Mashiro, a younger student who looks up to Natsusa; and Seiichiro Shingyouji, Natsusa's childhood friend.
