However, the hit original game fans will be surprised to know that the TV series will have a different story. 

Even the fan-favorite protagonist Tsubasa Ariharaas from the game and anime might not return in live adaptation. 

The story in “August is at the Batting Cage at Night” follows a 17-year-old who works at the Batting cage and her interaction with a mysterious man who claims to understand the worries and conflicts just by observing their batting.

The show’s producer and staff members claim to be baseball lovers and thus, their enthusiasm seeps into the story. Hakuhodo Kettle and Shota Hatanaka, the producers, explain that the show follows the theme of “baseball leads to life” that led to an entirely new “human baseball drama.”

They have promised that they are keeping the spirit of the original story alive by upholding the motif of drawing human growth through baseball. 

This summer, we can expect a sweet adult drama that shows human growth through baseball! No matter what, this will be an exciting watch!
