When animes dive into the world of sports, very high-quality results come out. We can count dozens of great anime productions that focus on boxing, basketball, football, and baseball. Number 24 was one of the ambitious sports productions of the year. We watched the adventures of the most prestigious young team in the country in this anime production in Rugby’s center. At the center of the series was Natsusa Yuzuki. When their teammates reach the level to play in international tournaments, they will face all the financial and moral obstacles together. They have presented the virtues of not only sports but also friendship.
Natsusa Yuzuki entered college hoping to become the rugby team’s star but can no longer play Rugby due to some reason. Ibuki Ueoka is also an upper-class student who quit Rugby. Along with this duo, the novice Yasunari Tsuru, who does not like Natsusa, Yuu Mashiro, who takes Natsusa’s example, and Natsusa’s childhood friend Seiichirou Shingyouji are fighting together in the Kansai University rugby league. In a possible second season, we will witness the new achievements of the young athletes. We wish you a more exciting season than the first season.
