Hanebado! (はねバド!), also known as The Badminton Play of Ayano Hanesaki! or Hanebad!, is a Japanese sports manga series by Kōsuke Hamada. It has been serialized in Kodansha's seinen manga magazine good! Afternoon since 2013 and has been collected in thirteen tankōbon volumes.[1] An anime television series adaptation by Liden Films premiered from July 2018.[2]

Plot[edit]

In the sporting world of badminton, Uchika Hanesaki was a reigning champion. Her daughter Ayano would follow her mother and trained with Uchika for many years. One day in her middle school Ayano caught a cold before an important badminton match and subsequently lost, causing Uchika to leave her and Ayano to be raised by her grandparents. Her mother leaving resulted in Ayano being depressed and stopped playing badminton at a competitive level. Now as Ayano is in her first year in high school, she is recruited by former player Kentarō Tachibana to join the badminton club. While there, she learns to overcome her fears from playing badminton again.

Anime[edit]

An anime television series adaptation premiered on July 2, 2018[a] on Tokyo MX and other channels,[23] and is planned to run for 13 episodes.[24] The series is directed by Shinpei Ezaki and written by Taku Kishimoto, with animation by Liden Films. Satoshi Kimura is providing the character designs, and Tatsuya Kato is composing the music. The opening theme is "Futari no Hane" (ふたりの羽根) by Yurika, and the ending theme is "High Stepper" (ハイステッパー, Hai Suteppā) by Yuiko Ōhara.[25]

The production was affected by the 2018 Hokkaido earthquake: the photography studio is located in Sapporo and was without power following the earthquake, making it impossible for the staff to continue working until electricity is fully restored. As a result, episode 11 of the show was delayed, with a new broadcast date yet to be decided.[26] The show resumed on September 17, 2018 after being delayed for a week.[27]

The series is simulcast worldwide outside Asia by Crunchyroll with English subtitles, and in North America, the British Isles and Australasia by Funimation with an English dub.[28]
