It has been announced that the anime adaptation Eto Mori’s competitive diving novel DIVE! is to start airing on Fuji TV’s Noitanima block from July 2017.
The anime will be produced by ZERO-G, who are known for such shows as Battery and the upcoming Winter 2017 anime Piace ~Watashi no Italian~.
After the success of Yuri on Ice!!!, more companies are willing to adapt novels and manga about more sports. Diving is an unfamiliar sport for many, so we are looking forward to seeing what the anime can do!
