Adaptation based on sports manga by Hajime Musashino hits TV Tokyo in April of 2021
If you've got a passion for hot-blooded sports action, then be sure to check out the brand-new teaser trailer for Burning Kabaddi (known as Shakunetsu Kabaddi in Japan), an upcoming TV anime based on the manga by Hajime Musashino about a former soccer player who gets drawn into the highly competitive world of a full-contact sport that originates in India.
The story of Burning Kabaddi follows Tatsuya Yoigoshi, a former soccer ace who gave up sports after graduating from middle school. One day Tatsuya is scouted by Masato Ohjyo, the captain of the Noukin High School kabaddi club. Tatsuya is convinced that kabaddi is just a joke, but his athletic instincts awaken when he attends a practice match and discovers that the sport is actually closer to a martial arts competition.
Burning Kabaddi is directed by Kazuya Ichikawa and features animation production by TMS Entertainment. The series is scheduled to broadcast in Japan on TV Tokyo and other stations beginning in April of 2021.
