A promotional video was released this Saturday for the upcoming anime adaptation of Mountain Pukuichi’s baseball girls anime Tamayomi. Check it out here!
Lead character Yomi Takeda will be voiced by newcomer Kaori Maeda, who just debuted last year by voicing small roles in 100% Pascal-sensei. This will be her first lead role. The other main character Tamaki Yamazaki will be played by Satomi Amano, who is also fairly new to the seiyuu industry. Her only other voice-acting role is Hotaru Shiragiku in The iDOLM@STER: Cinderella Girls.

Tamayomi is slated for an April 2020 premiere.
The website also revealed the main staff working on the anime. The series is directed by Toshinori Fukushima (Major, Beyblade the Movie: Fierce Battle) for Studio A-Cat (Frame Arms Girl), who is producing the series. Series composition is handled by Touko Machida (Wake Up, Girls!, Harukana Receive) while Koichi Kikuta (KONOSUBA, Fruits Basket 2019) is handling character design.
Anime News Network describes the manga’s story as such:
”The manga’s story centers on pitcher Yomi Takeda. In junior high, her baseball club did not get far because it lacked a catcher that could catch Yomi’s “miracle ball.” Yomi quit baseball, graduated from junior high, and enrolled at Shin Koshigaya High School. Yomi reunited with her childhood friend Tamaki Yamazaki at her new school. Tamaki has skill as a catcher and can even catch the ball when Yomi pitches with all her strength. Now that the two of them have been reunited, they then aim to bring their high school baseball club to the national championships.”
Tamayomi is a baseball manga series written by Mountain Pukuichi. It is being serialized in Houbunsha’s seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara Forward since April 2016. So far, six tankobon volumes have been released for the series, with the sixth tankobon shipped last September 12.
