The visual shows the character Tatsuya Yoigoshi whose role will be performed by Rui Tabuchi.

Kabaddi has less exposure than soccer, baseball, or other similar sports. So, now that it is receiving anime as well as stage plays, I hope that the game gets the attention it deserves.

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.
