diomedéa animates long-running manga by Takeshi Hinata

A television anime adaptation of Takeshi Hinata's Ahiru no Sora manga has been green-lit. The anime's staff opened an official website and Twitter account for the anime.

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 (4.9 feet) 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?

This year's 13th issue of Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine hinted on Wednesday that the manga will have a "super important announcement" in the next issue on March 7.

Hinata launched the manga in Shonen Magazine in 2003, and Kodansha released the manga's 48th compiled book volume in August 2017. The manga's 49th volume will ship on March 16. The manga has 24 million copies in print. The title frequently ranks among the best-selling manga in Japan.
