‘The spring 2002 anime series Tamayomi will bring some baseball into the lives of fans who are craving it on April 1st in Japan.

It’ll be available to viewers in the US, Canada, UK, and Ireland and is listed as a simulcast at the moment. But that’s no surprise as no dubbing is going on at all right now so any simuldub will be delayed down the line if it gets one.

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.

The main Japanese cast now includes:

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.
