Their joint talent was unrivaled during their junior high days, leaving rival players shattered and dreams crushed. Now, fate leads them to the unremarkable Kotesashi High School in Tokyo, where they cross paths with former baseball players who abandoned their passion after facing defeat at the hands of Haruka and Kei.

Previously, the manga had already inspired an event anime adaptation by MAPPA, premiering during the “Jump Special Anime Festa 2020” in October. Notably, Miyano reprised his role as Kei in this event anime. The TV anime’s direction is entrusted to Parako Shinohara, known for their work on “Dino Girl Gauko” and “You Don’t Know Gunma Yet.”

Joining the team, Noriko Itou takes charge as character designer and chief animation director, bringing her expertise from projects like “In This Corner of the World” and “Punch Line.” Additionally, Hisako Akagi, recognized for her work on “Land of the Lustrous,” serves as the art director, adding her artistic flair to the series.
