Sentai Filmworks announced today that it acquired CINDERELLA NINE (八月のシンデレラナイン, Hachigatsu no Shinderera Nain, 2019), the anime adaptation of the popular baseball-themed video game of the same name by Akatsuki and KADOKAWA. Sentai will release the series in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, Latin America, Spain, Portugal and Nordic countries.
Tsubasa Arihara loves baseball so much, she actually started her high school’s baseball club! But passion alone won’t keep a club alive, so it’s up to her to recruit as many all-star players as she can. Some potential recruits have never played before while others have returned to the game thanks to Tsubasa’s love for the sport, and together they’ll form a team united in love for the game as much as their growing friendship. But whether they win or lose, one thing is for sure: every game they play together is sure to be a home run!
Produced by TMS Entertainment (GUGURE! KOKKURI-SAN, ReLIFE), Cinderella Nine is directed by Susumu Kudo (K, MAGIC KAITO 2014) while Jin Tanaka (LAID-BACK CAMP, ANNE-HAPPY) provides series composition. The series stars Nozomi Nishida (ARMED GIRL’S MACHIAVELLISM, ABSOLUTE DUO) as Tsubasa Arihara, Yumiri Hanamori (GRIMOIRE OF ZERO, SAKURA TRICK) as Akane Ukita, Honoka Inoue (BETWEEN THE SKY AND SEA, TSUKIGAKIREI) as Tomoe Kawakita, Saki Minami (BanG DREAM!, CHIDORI RSC) as Yuki Nozaki and Reina Kondo (JUST BECAYSE!, SWORD ART ONLINE: ALICAZATION – WAR OF UNDERWORLD) as Ryo Shinonome.
The series will be available to stream on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
