A new baseball anime series is on the horizon as an anime adaptation of Tamayomi is in the works as we learned in June. We didn’t get any details then but now the official site has updated to reveal a natural spring 2020 premiere to coincide with the baseball season getting underway. Toshinori Fukushima is set to direct based on the series composition by Touko Machida. Koichi Kikuta is handling the character designs with Studio A-Cat handling the animation production.
Check out the first key visual below.
The manga comes from creator Mountain Pukuichi which began in 2016 and has five volumes released so far.
Plot Concept: The series focuses on pitcher Yomi Takeda. In junior high, her baseball club did not get far because it lacked a catcher that could catch Yomi’s “miracle ball.” Yomi quit baseball, graduated from junior high, and enrolled at Shin Koshigaya High School. Yomi reunited with her childhood friend Tamaki Yamazaki at her new school. Tamaki has skill as a catcher and can even catch the ball when Yomi pitches with all her strength. The girls can fulfill their childhood promise to each other as they start their baseball journeys anew.
