TMS Entertainment is exploring a completely new genre of sports anime. Yes, I am talking about its upcoming anime, Burning Kabaddi, an arena of sports that no one has attempted before.
The game requires a perfect balance of tactics and physical attributes. Much like ruling a kingdom, a team has to raid and defend against its opposition alternatively. The production company has already released trailers and visuals for promoting the anime.
On Monday, the official website for Burning Kabaddi revealed a new visual for its anime adaptation. The anime is set to premiere on April 2, 2021.

The story follows Tatsuya Yoigoshi, a former ace soccer player who has lost his interest in sports. But one day, he falls in love with Kabaddi after watching an intense competition in a practice match.
Kabaddi is a very popular game in South Asian countries. Many children grow up playing Kabaddi as their primary sport, but despite these facts, the sport isn’t much popular outside South Asia.
I am sure the anime will portray the intensity and thrill of playing this energetic team sport to the other parts of the world. The adrenaline rush of the game will surely keep you hooked on to it.
Moreover, it will be a great opportunity for South Asian people to relive their childhood days while watching Tatsuya and his friends invade their opponents’ territory on the anime silver screen.
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.Originally Written By Epic Dope
