Hanebad! is following the story of the girls in the badminton club at prefectural Kitakomachi High School. The two main characters are first-year Ayano Hanesaki, who has excellent reflexes but dodges badminton, and Nagisa, who is a third-year student and aims to become Japan’s No.1 and practices very hard. Besides Ayano and Nagisa Aragaki are fellow friends and their coach, who supports the club, as well as rivals filled with individuality.
Anime Hanebad! is based on Kosuke Hamada’s manga Hanebad! (The Badminton Play of Ayano Hanesaki!), which is currently being serialized in Kodansha’s good! Afternoon.
