Teekyū! Manga About Girls' Tennis Team Gets TV Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Roots and Piyo's gag comedy manga only launched five months ago

The wraparound jacket band on the first volume of Roots and Piyo's Teekyū! gag comedy manga is announcing this month that the manga will have a television anime adaptation. The manga centers around a girls' tennis team. (The title is a wordplay on a Japanese term for tennis, teikyū.)

Piyo launched the manga in Earth Star Entertainment's Comic Earth Star magazine earlier this year. Earth Star Entertainment claims that this is the fastest television anime adaptation ever, since the manga only launched five months ago.

The Teekyū TV series will premiere on the television station Tokyo MX on October 7 at 10:27 p.m.

Update: Even though the four high school girls are in the tennis team, they hardly play any actual tennis. Source: Comic Natalie
