The plot is set in the fictional land of Neo-Tokyo in the year 20XX, where young people build tribes similar to modern-day street gangs. Though, tribes settle matters with extreme baseball rather than their fists.

Extreme baseball is nothing but a dramatically high-tech and futuristic version of the good old baseball. Instead of standard equipment, the game is played with technically advanced bats and gloves which adds a punch.

Akatsuki and Too Kyo Games have announced a Tribe Nine anime adaptation for Winter 2022. They also revealed that a Tribe Nine smartphone 3D role-playing game and a Webtoon are also in the works.

The first animation PV of the TV anime “Tribe Nine”

The PV introduces us to the various characters of the anime while teasing how thrilling a game of extreme baseball is. Neo-Tokyo looks like the dreamland of every cyberpunk lover while also portraying how dystopian such places can be.

We see delinquent kids and teenagers playing the sport with unusual high-tech weapon-like equipment and handling them like it’s just a normal bat and ball.

A key visual featuring all the characters from the anime was also revealed by the franchise. Funimation will be co-producing the upcoming anime.
