A couple months ago, we learned popular basketball manga Ahiru on Sora would be slam dunking its way into anime form. Now we known when: this October.
Ahiru on Sora is the tale of a pint-sized b-baller named Sora Kurumatani, who takes his high school’s slacker basketball team and whips it into a force to be reckoned with. The manga is written by Takeshi Hinata, and it’s been running in Weekly Shonen Magazine since 2004.
The series will be directed by KanColle veterans Shingo Tamaki and Keizo Kusakawa, whose title is general director. Go Zappa (Blend S) will handle scripts. Character design comes courtesy Yoshino Honda (Fuuka). The series is animated at diomedea.
As soon as we get a trailer and other details, you can rest assured they’ll dunk their way onto our news feed.
