In the new anime, the match between Hyotei Tennis Team with its captain Atobe Keigo and the Rikkai Tennis Team led by Seikai Yukimura, which is not depicted in the original story, will be told.
The project will be completely supervised by Konomi, directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi, screenplay by Kouki Hirota, and character design by Meiji Ishii.
