"Burning Kabaddi" is based on the sports manga by Musashino Hajime, serialized on "Manga Wan".
Yoigoshi Tatsuya was a famous soccer player who was called the "Futou no Yoigoshi", but stepped away from sports after entering high school. The story starts with him being dragged into the "running combat sport" kabaddi in which the players work together to catch and drag down the intruding enemy to win the game.
Yasumoto Hiroki, Suzumura Kenichi, Yashiro Taku, Uchida Shuuichi, and Yanagida Junichi will all be playing members of the Souwa High School Kabaddi Club, a strong team that is one of the top 4 in the Kanto area.
Yasumoto plays the captain Rokugen Ayumu, who is a defense player (Anti) with amazing physical strength and skills, and Suzumura plays the ace offense player (Raider), Takaya Ren, who has a long reach, fast speed, and the best duration of an attack in the team.
Yashiro plays Kizki Shintarou who collects hairbands and wears them during the game, Uchida plays Eikura Yuu who is calm and can think straight even in pinches, and Yanagida plays Muroya Daisuke with a 180cm large body who has distinct lips.
Let's keep our eyes on the members who go against Noukin High, the team that the protagonist, Tatsuya, belongs to.
The TV anime "Burning Kabaddi" will be broadcast on TV Tokyo and other channels from April 2, 2021.
Any sport has its "fever". Of course, kabaddi is no exception. But I didn't expect it to be so hot!
The cast members are all performing with burning passion. I hope you can feel the heat through the screen.
Everyone knows the name kabaddi but doesn't know the rules! As I read through the original manga, I understand how amazing this sport is. Manga and anime have a history of spreading knowledge of many sports. I'll do my best to deliver everyone a kabaddi fever!
I'm Yashiro Taku and I'll be playing Kizaki Shintarou.
The mental and physical clash of this anime, just like kabaddi, is exciting and fascinating, so I hope everyone will enjoy watching it!
Burning Kabaddi is one of my favorite mangas that I use points to read ahead every week, so the offer for this role was truly flattering!
Eikura seems to be cool and calm but is actually a very passionate guy who can put the team in front of his own pride. I'll perform with passion as much as Eikura!
I'm Yangaida Junichi and I'll be playing Souwa High 2nd grader, Muroya Daisuke.
I'll keep the pressure on Noukin High as their rival!
Please look forward to the broadcast to see our intense game!

Komada Wataru Comment
I have had experience of the game of kabaddi before, as one of my PE teachers in high school was a former player.
I was excited to see an anime based on it, and Seki Ryuta, the character I played this time, has sumo experience and is a hard worker who values communication with others.
He's also the class clown of the team.
Please look forward to the broadcast of "Burning Kabaddi"!
Murase Ayumi Comment
At first glance, I thought the character was a female assistant of the team! But he's actually a boy and will get things done when he's in the mood.
I'll do my best to capture his character. Here's my chant! kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi .......
