Kyoto Animation Reveals Teaser Trailer for Upcoming Archery Anime Tsurune

Boys with bows (and arrows)

So… the third season of Free! coming out this summer isn’t enough for you? You need MOAR MANSERVICE? Kyoto Animation has got you covered with yet another all-boy series coming out this October.

A new teaser trailer went live last night for the upcoming series Tsurune: Kazemai High School’s Archery Club. In the short 42-second trailer, we are introduced to all of the main characters though we don’t really get to see them in action. I also don’t speak fluent Japanese so if they revealed anything about the story, I missed it.

What we do know however is that along with visuals from Kyoto Animation, we will have Takuya Yamamura in the director’s chair and Michiko Yokote handling series composition.

Meanwhile, the primary cast will be:

Minato – Yuto Uemura
Seiya – Aoi Ichikawa
Ryouhei – Ryouta Suzuki
Nanao – Shogo Yano
Kaito – Kaito Ishikawa

I openly admit that I have zero problems with series that focus on budding relationships between young men who must overcome adversity together as a team. It’s a itch that doesn’t get scratched often enough, and I think that Kyoto Animation is doing a great service to the community by expanding everyone’s horizons and showing them something that doesn’t involve cute girls doing cute things.

Will you be checking this series out in October?
