About Burning Kabaddi

Burning Kabaddi manga by Hajime Musashino debuted in 2015. It was serialized in the Manga ONE app by Shogakukan.

Tatsuya Yoigoshi, a high school student, is invited to join the Kabaddi club of the school. He usually hates sports and thinks of it as a joke.

However, his views change when he witnesses a Kabaddi match, which is as competitive as a martial arts match.
