The official website and Twitter account for the television anime of Yu Muraoka's "Ippon" Again! (Mō Ippon!) manga revealed on Thursday the ending theme song artists, visual, and January 8 premiere. The Aoba Nishi High School Judo Club will perform the ending theme song "Ipponmichi."

The series will premiere on TV Tokyo on January 8 at 1:35 a.m. JST (effectively, January 9) before airing on TV Osaka, TV Setouchi, and BS TV Tokyo.

The anime stars:

Ken Ogiwara (episode director on Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood, Shadows House) is directing the anime at BAKKEN RECORD, and Aya Satsuki (SSSS.GRIDMAN ANOTHER LOAD novel, My Master Has No Tail) is in charge of the series scripts. Airi Takekawa (Joran: The Princess of Snow and Blood sub-character design) is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Shun Narita (The Girl in Twilight, Noblesse) is composing the music, which Pony Canyon is producing.

The manga follows Michi Sonoda, who had planned to quit judo after her final tournament in junior high. However, her best friend Sanae Takigawa invites her to continue judo in high school.

Muraoka debuted the ongoing manga in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shōnen Champion magazine in October 2018.
