Tribe Nine TV Anime Takes Baseball to the Extreme in Debut Trailer

Funimation co-production is on the way in January 2022

Tribe Nine


Akatsuki and Too Kyo Games' new Tribe Nine project has a few arms to it, including a game, a WEBTOON, and a TV anime adaptation. If you ever wanted to see what you would get when you mix the folks behind Danganronpa with the concept of a bunch of groups throughout Tokyo participating in extreme baseball, well, you just got your wish in the anime's first trailer.


Directed by Yu Aoki, with Michiko Yokote supervising scripts, and Yosuke Yabumoto adapting Danganronpa artist Rui Komatsuzaki's character designs at LIDEN FILMS, Tribe Nine is a Funimation co-production that's due out in January 2022. Check out the video for a taste of the over-the-top sports action to come. 




Voice cast members revealed thus far include Shun Horie as Haru Shirogane, Mai Fuchigami as Saori Arisugawa, Akira Ishida as Shun Kamiya, Chiharu Sawashiro as Taiga, Mutsumi Tamura as Santaro Mita, Shoya Chiba as Kazuki Aoyama, Fukushi Ochiai as Manami Daimon, Hiroshi Naka as Tenshin Otori, Mikako Komatsu as Yui Kamiki, and Junichi Suwabe as Ojiro Otori.
