FUNimation Entertainment has announced that it is co-producing an anime adaptation of the Tribe Nine game with LIDENFILMS. The anime is being directed by Yu Aoki, and it is scheduled to premiere in January 2022.
The Tribe Nine gaming project was first announced in 2020. The premise for the series is that different groups throughout the city of Tokyo take part in matches of extreme baseball, which end up being more like action-packed showdowns than anything else. In 2020, Kazutaka Kodaka told Weekly Famitsu that the project was focused on “extreme sports” and “street fight,” using the city as a playground for the sport (though it’s not referred to as a sport).
