Mitsuru Adachi's Mix baseball manga is inspiring a television anime adaptation in spring 2019.
The manga's story is set in Meisei Academy about 30 years after the events in Adachi's Touch manga. The story centers on two step brothers who are aiming to compete in the national Kōshien baseball tournament.
The manga's official Twitter account is marking the announcement with a Twitter campaign. People who tweet a memory related to Adachi's works with the campaign hashtag by August 31 will be eligible to win one of five baseball jerseys signed by Adachi.
Adachi launched the series in Shogakukan's Monthly Shonen Sunday magazine in 2012, and the 13th compiled book volume will ship on August 9. The series has more than 7.5 million copies in print.
The Touch baseball manga ran in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Magazine from 1981 to 1986. The series inspired a television anime in 1985, which received several television special and film sequels. The manga also inspired a live-action film in 2005.
