‘Tsurune’: The sound of a bowstring after the release of an arrow. To an archer, there is no happiness like producing a beautiful tsurune, and that beautiful reverberation can capture your heart.
Even if they use the same bow and arrow, an archer can never produce the exact same sound. It really is once in a lifetime. Each shot is a ‘meeting’ and ‘farewell’ you will never again experience. To Minato Narumiya, each Tsurune always represented a ‘meeting’…
About to embark on the eternal path of the bow and arrow are a group of 1st-year high school boys as fresh and youthful as the new leaves of spring.
The Japanese art of archery, Kyudo, will lead these boys to irreplaceable experiences of a lifetime and camaraderie. Just like the soft light filtering through the leaves of the trees, the curtain rises on a bright and youthful Kyudo animation!
The series is based on Kotoko Ayano’s novel tsurune: Kazemai Koukou Kyuudou-bu.
