The sports anime genre has been broadening its horizon and going past the boundaries of soccer, baseball, and other mainstream games. The upcoming Birdie Wing anime will direct all attention to golf, a sport that has gone unnoticed in anime till date.
What’s more? The sport is debuting in the anime industry with female protagonists. Women’s golf has been gaining popularity in recent years, and Birdie Wing is taking up this opportunity to present an excellent series.
An original golf anime, Birdie Wing – Golf Girls’ Story, has been announced. Bandai Namco Pictures has revealed that the series will debut in 2022.
A new visual for the upcoming anime has also been released:

The visual shows Eve and Aoi Amawashi, the two main characters of the anime. Both Eve and Aoi have entirely different personalities. Even their playing style and ideologies are in stark contrast to each other.
Yet, it looks like a beautiful friendship is waiting to be built between them.
Cast members who will voice Aoi and Eva include:
|Eve||Akari Kito||Nezuko Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)|
|Aoi||Asami Sato||Nobara Kugisaki (Jujutsu Kaisen)|
Staff members of the anime include:
|Director||Takayuki Inagaki||Desert Punk|
|Series script||Yousuke Kuroda||My Hero Academia|
|Theme song||Kohmi Hirose||Cardcaptor Sakura (OP/ED 1)|
This year, golf seems to have stolen the spotlight in the anime scene. Another original golf anime, Sorairo Utility, was also announced recently.
Birdie Wing can be enjoyed by a wide range of audiences regardless of their knowledge of the sport. I am looking forward to how Eve and Aoi’s backgrounds are portrayed, as it will make their interaction even more enjoyable.
