Crunchyroll will begin streaming the eighth season of Teekyū on Wednesday, October 5 at 10:40 a.m. EDT, and will be available worldwide except for Asia.
The original manga and the anime both follow the everyday lives of four girls in a high school tennis club — although they hardly play any tennis.
Piyo and Roots launched the original Teekyū manga in Comic Earth Star in early 2012, and the first anime season was announced just months later on the manga's first book volume. Earth Star Entertainment claims that this is the fastest television anime adaptation ever. A second and third season followed. Crunchyroll streamed the previous seven seasons of the show, as well as the Takamiya Nasuno Desu! and Usakame spinoffs, as they aired in Japan.
The show's seventh season premiered on January 11, after the sixth season premiered last October, and the fifth season premiered in July 2015. The spinoff series Takamiya Nasuno Desu! (I am Nasuno Takamiya) also premiered in April 2015. Piyo and Roots' spinoff manga Usakame also received a television anime, which premiered on April 11. Starting from the fourth season of Teekyū, production switched from MAPPA to Millepensee, and the studio also produced the Takamiya Nasuno Desu! and Usakame spinoffs.
