▍About Try Knights
Written by Shunsaku Yano (矢野俊策) and illustrated by Senzoku Erisawa (衿沢 千束), with original character designs by Rihito Takarai (宝井理人), Try Knights centers on high school students Akira Kariya and Riku Haruma.
One day, the new rugby club member Akira gets advice on running from Riku, who used to be an active rugby player but gave it up because he lacked the physique for the sport. Akira takes an interest in Riku, and Riku’s passion for rugby gradually returns. By joining forces, the pair can play a new tactical game and aim for the top of high school rugby.
The manga has been serialized in Media Factory’s shojo manga magazine Monthly Comic Gene since 15th June, 2018 and has been collected in two tankobon volumes.
