There is no ace striker, nor cleanup hitter.
Here, anyone has the chance to be a hero.
Kanagawa High School, the day of the entrance ceremony.
The story begins when the beginner of rugby, Gion, who is small and hates losing, joined a rugby club.
His classmate, 石清水 (Iwazhimizu) who cannot give himself completely up to rugby because of an incidence in the past, the sub-captain, 八王子 (Hachiouji) who cares for the other club members a lot, and the captain 赤山 (Akayama), who is vigorous and has an extraordinary fighting spirit are also in the club. Such unique members, who have totally different body types and personalities are growing as a team, while struggling with each other on the ground, which is called “Blossom of youth”, striving for the highest after giving the best effort!
Original Creator：Shiori Amase
“I am very grateful to be a part of the rugby animation, which I was longing to join because I, myself, have played rugby in school days. I want you to enjoy the enthusiasm of every character in the original story. Everyone of the staff joins hands, (although we sometimes have an argument lol) and makes the best effort to make the animation successful. I am looking forward to working on it.”
Series Composition/Script：Masahiro Yokotani
“Although I do not have any experience in rugby, looking back at my school days, I really feel sympathy to characters who tend to have complexes and I cannot help but love these characters because that’s how I used to be in my old school days. Starting from 祇園 (Gion) and 石清水 (Iwazhimizu), those characters from rival schools are facing some problems. I hope I can effectively write a story about the process of growing as a team and about the fact that they become stronger and stronger through their struggles, while I, myself, feel the same pain with them. Thank you for your support. ”
“I am also a person with an arts background same as Mokotani, who is working for the Series Composition, and I have exactly the same opinion about the greatness of the humble enthusiasm that the original story has. I want to make the best effort to make this animation successful by working with all the staff and cast together. Also, I wrote a story about the origin of the rugby player 赤山 (Akayama) in the drama CD of the comic’s special edition. You may be able to see an unexpected aspect of him. Please enjoy it with the editorial content of the animation.
Character Design：Masanori Shino
“I am filled with hope and also tensed because I have not worked for a sports animation for a while, and this is the first animation being broadcasted that is about rugby. There are many drawing patterns of the characters in “All OUT!!”, and it is very fun to draw each of them since all are attractive. I would like to show everyone all my notions about the character’s sexiness and attractiveness. I still have so much work to do but I would like to do my best for the success of this animation.”

Shōya Chiba as 祇園 健次(Kenji Gion)
“I am Shōya Chiba, and I am going to play the role of Kenji Gion. From now on, I will face all challenges together with Gion and I will do my very best to tell you all about the enthusiasm that the story has. Thank you very much for your support!”
Yūto Adachi as 石清水 澄明(Sumiaki Iwashimizu)
“I am Yūto Adachi, and I was given the opportunity to play Sumiaki Iwashimizu’s voice. To tell you the truth, I read the original story after I got the opportunity of joining the audition. And I realized that I totally immersed myself in the comic. I wanted to play this character from the bottom of my heart, so when I got the result of the audition, I was too happy and I cannot help but to being silent rather than to be excited. I will not lose to anybody in terms of the love towards Iwazhimizu. I will do my best to respond to the expectation from the fans of the original story. Please cheer us up!”
Yoshimasa Hosoya as 赤山 濯也(Takuya Sekizan)
“I am very happy and thankful to have been given the opportunity to play the role of Sekizan. I am not very familiar with rugby and even with the rule of the sports, because rugby was not the sports that I could easily play. However, I could feel that the story is filled with a sense of the passionate “blossom of youth”. Not only would I like to tell you that the animation is enjoyable, I also would like to tell you about the special feelings that you only have in your school days, like “frustration” and “delight”, that I now think is very envious to be able to feel. Please don’t miss the animation!”
Ryota Ohsaka as 八王子睦(Mutsumi Hachioji)
“I was not expecting that I would be given the role of Hachioji, so I am honestly really surprised. Hachioji is a character that plays the role of a sub-captain who observes the whole and organizes the team and who is looked up to from the members. I have never played rugby before and I finally learned the names of the positions by reading the original story. However, the story makes someone like me feel something like the soul of passionate men. I want to do my best for the animation!”
