The visuals and the previously released trailer somewhat assure us that the animation will be of good quality. Each character looks perfect for a Kabaddi team, where both agility and strength are required.

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.
