This year's 23rd issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine announced on Wednesday that the television anime of Takeshi Hinata's Ahiru no Sora manga will premiere in October. The magazine's 24th issue will reveal the show's cast on May 15.
Keizou Kusakawa (Fuuka, Aho Girl, Kan Colle) is credited as chief director, while Shingo Tamaki (Aho Girl) is directing the anime at diomedéa. Go Zappa (Beatless, Koihime Musō, Blend S) is in charge of series composition. Yoshino Honda (Fuuka) is designing the characters.
In the story, 15-year-old Sora Kurumatani is only 149 centimeters (4'10") tall, but he loves basketball. He enthusiastically joins the basketball club as soon as he gets to high school, but the club is comprised of two terrifying twins who rule the school and their friends. Can Sora continue in this kind of club?
Hinata launched the manga in Weekly Shōnen Magazine in 2003, and Kodansha released the manga's 50th compiled book volume on November 16. The manga has entered its final arc as of January. The series has more than 24 million copies in print.
