TEEKYU 2 is based on the tennis comedy manga that appeared in Comic Earth Star magazine, written by Roots and illustrated by Piyo. The anime adaptation debuted in 2012 and featured animation by studio MAPPA (Kids on the Slope)

Broadcast in the cool fall of 2012, the comedy anime widely known for being too chaotic, "Tekyu," has returned! The everyday lives of four unusual girls of the Kameido High School tennis club will have you convulsing with laughter. Thrown about by her idiot seniors, junior member Oshimoto Yuri finds herself constantly correcting them. Incompetent at tennis despite being a member of the tennis club, second year student Shinjo Kanae is a joke machine. Kansai second year student Bando Marimo is unimaginably perverted. Solving all problems with money is the mysterious and wealthy second year student Takamiya Nasuno. Returning for a second season and still ignoring tennis, you won't be able to tear your eyes away from the chaos!
