Macross' Kawamori, Oban's Romain, Satelight's anime debuts in April

The March issue of Kadokawa's Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine has launched a manga adaptation of the Basquash! robot sports anime series on Monday. Creators Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Escaflowne, Aquarion) and Thomas Romain (Oban Star-Racers) are collaborating on this Satelight studio production that will air in Japan this April. Tetsuya Hayasi is drawing the manga.

The story takes place on the planet Earthdash, where its inhabitants gaze on its moon and the technologically advanced lunar city of Mooneyes with awe. Dan JD, a boy living in Rollingtown on Earthdash's surface, gets caught up in Bigfoot Basketball — a fast-paced sport played with giant Bigfoot robots.
