The TV anime adaptation of Mountain Pukuichi’s (マウンテンプクイチ) baseball manga “Tamayomi” (球詠) reveals the official PV and stills from the first episode that is scheduled to premiere on 1st April 2020.
The PV previews the anime’s opening theme song “Never Let You Go!” performed by Naho. The ending song “Plus Minus Zero Rule” (プラスマイナスゼロの法則) is performed by the cast of the Shin Koshigaya baseball team.
In her Junior High years, the pitcher Yomi Takeda was not able to get very far in a cross-school baseball tournament. Since the catcher on her team wasn’t at her level, she couldn’t use her signature move, the “Magic Throw,” and eventually regretted not being able to use it. After Junior High, she decided to stop playing baseball and went to Shin Koshigaya High School, a school without a baseball club.
There, she found her long lost childhood friend, Tamaki Yamazaki, who used to play catchball with her when they were kids. Tamaki also played baseball during her Junior High years as a catcher, and could even catch Yomi’s “Magic Throw!”
Their promise with each other during their childhood could now be fulfilled! Walking together on the road of baseball once again…
