All OUT!!, a TV anime series featuring rugby for the first time in anime history, will start its broadcasting in October 2016.
While the fabulous performance of Japan’s representatives in 7-a-side rugby is still fresh in our memory, August 24 is considered as an important day for rugby as it is said to be the start of “rugby day”.
It’s only one month before the October broadcast and we have new information on the second key visual, additional cast plus comments, and new promotion projects & events!
Release of Second Key Visual
In addition to Kenji Gion, a leading character, and other main members of Kanagawa High School (called Jinko), the key visual of Shingo Komori has been released.
He is a former Japan’s representative who is leading the weak team of Jinko.
Along with the phrase “give it all out” in Japanese, which is also the meaning of its title ALL OUT!!, the key visual features the coach in the back while each Jinko member has a facial expression representative of his character.

Additional Cast Info
Shingo Komori is the coach of the rugby club at Kanagawa High School. He is a former Japan’s representative. His blog, which he started after his retirement, caught Gion’s attention. His coaching is very strict but filled with love.
CV: Takaya Hashi, Japanese Dub of Harry Potter (Severus Snape)
Comment: I am Takaya Hashi who will be doing the role of coach Komori. When I checked in advance, coach Komori had a serious face. It seems that I also have a serious face and is being thought as a scary old man among new voice actors. lol
I’m not protecting myself but the more that person looks serious the softer inside. I’m thinking to act coach Komori with this part as our point in common. I’m really looking forward to how coach Komori turns out.
Umeno Hoakari a second year high school student and the manager of the rugby club. She has a cheerful character and is cool in doing her work. She is the only woman in the rugby club. She briefly explains the rules of rugby while reprimanding Gion, a novice player.
CV: Haruka Yoshimura, THE [email protected] CINDERELLA GIRLS (Mika Jougasaki)
Comment: I read the original work and deeply felt the world of rugby which was alien to me. And I love how each character is highlighted in the series. I’m glad that I can work for this masterpiece. I will do my best so please look forward to it.
