Sports anime are always beaming with optimism and the positive light of sportsmanship. What never ceases to amaze me in anime based in the sports genre is how well it portrays healthy competition. Liden Films and TV Asahi collaboration project is bringing forth yet another sports genre anime that is probably going to bring in more aesthetic vibes for us who are fans of the category. The anime titled ‘Ryman’s Club’ is going to have a seinen demographic, meaning we’ll be seeing the story from an adult’s point of view. This could be really interesting and unique at the same time. The Ryman’s Club release date was announced on the same day of its announcement.
Ryman’s Club is an original anime, and thus we do not have a source manga or novel to know what the story is about and how it is going to progress. However, the developers left enough information for the fans to create a lot of hype among all anime fans. From the comments of those involved, we are definitely very excited about the anime. The anime’s Twitter page gave out details about the Ryman’s Club release date and PV, as well as the main cast and staff. Here is everything we know about the upcoming original anime so far and what you should be expecting from it.
Ryman’s Club is set in Sunlight Beverage company, where five men work as salarymen during the day and play Badminton as the corporate team. The protagonist of the story is Mikoto Shiratori, who used to be a brilliant badminton high school player back in high school. However, he stopped playing after he faced a loss. As an adult, he decides to resume playing Badminton for the company’s team.
There’s no telling what we can expect from the anime. However, cast member Junya Enoki claims that the anime has a wonderful depiction of Badminton. What’s absolutely curious about this upcoming anime is its setting in the world of adults which is a big difference from all the shounen sports anime that we often come across. How the anime conveys the feelings of a working adult is going to be a big surprise that we should all look forward to.
Unfortunately, there has been no confirmation of a specific date. Nevertheless, we can expect to get updates regarding a specific Ryman’s Club release date by the end of Fall. You can stay updated with the anime through their official Twitter Page or the official Ryman Club website. Alternatively, you can check in to our website for all-new details on the upcoming anime.
On the day of the announcement, the creators also uploaded the first Promotional Video of Ryman’s Club. The 1:30 minutes long video gives us a look at all the characters involved in the series. It was uploaded on the YouTube channel of TV Asahi and also on the anime’s Twitter page.
Aiya Yamaguchi is directing the anime and drafting the character alongside Terukk Utsumi, who will be writing the scripts. The character designs are illustrated by Yasuda Suzuhito. Ryman’s Club will be animated at Liden Films. Masashiro Sato will be overlooking the Art Settings of the anime as Masatoshi Kai directs the art. The anime’s art backgrounds are designed by Studio KAIMU. Finally, the fox capture plan is composing the anime’s music.
