There is no such thing as too many sports anime. They stir up a whole other level of hype in people and any number of anime from the genre are much welcome. Recently the genre has been coming up with shows based on some underrated games, and the latest addition to the list is Fanfare of Adolescence.
Aniplex has announced its latest original anime with horse-riding and youth as its central themes. The story is based around three boys from completely different backgrounds but with the common passion of being a jockey.
The original anime Fanfare of Adolescence (Gunjou no Fanfare) by Aniplex announced its Spring 2022 premiere with a moving teaser.

Yu Arimura CV. Shogo Yano
Shun Kazenami CV. Shimba Tsuchiya
Amane Grace CV. Natsuki Hanae
The first visual features Amane who looks cold and distant, unlike Shun, who looks like the human version of sunlight. Yu Arimura has a look of immense determination in his eyes and is motivated to overcome any hindrances that occur.
The differences in their personalities are evident through these visuals, which makes it even more exciting. Moreover, the vast difference in their backgrounds has a significant impact on the plot as well.
Yu is a former idol who fell in love with horse racing after witnessing a match. Shun was brought up on an island and has always wanted to ride horses someday.
Amane is someone who’s lost in the path of life that his parents set for him but longs to fulfill his dream. All three are ordinary 15-year-old boys with dreams in their hearts and hopes in their eyes, but only one will make it to the top.
Speaking of characters, the franchise also announced the cast for the upcoming anime, and we have it all here for you:
|Yu Arimura||Shougo Yano||Mafuyu Sato (Given)|
|Shun Kazanami||Shinba Tsuchiya||Shotaro Futaba (Bakuten!!)|
|Amane Grace||Natsuki Hanae||Tanjiro Kamado (Demon Slayer)|
The staff that will be working on the show was also announced:
|Director||Makoto Katou||Fire Force|
|Character Design||Hiro Kanzaki||Oreimo|

Sports anime have always been my favorite due to the passion and thrill it holds, and I expect the same from this upcoming anime too.
I have high hopes that the show will portray the beauty of the sport in the most genuine way, and I am here for it all.
