In recent years, rugby has attracted more and more attention. The most important event of the Japanese was the World Cup, which was held in their country in September 2019. In 2020 (most likely, the postponement to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic), the Rugby-7 tournament will be held at the Tokyo Olympics. Is the anime “Number 24” about the rugby team awaiting success?
Genre – sport, comedy.
The number of episodes is 12.
The premiere of the season 1 took place on January 8, 2020.
When will the sequel to the anime “Number 24 Season 2” be released?
At the moment, there is no official information that the director and his team will take on the new season of the series. Note that the opinions of fans about the series were divided: some found the anime interesting and unusual, others – flat and of the same type. Unfortunately, an insufficient rating may affect the decision of the project management to create its continuation. We are waiting for official statements.
A tragic story happened with Yuzuki Natsusa half a year ago. On that terrible day, the guy was riding a motorcycle with a friend when they were hit by a car. The result was a severe injury to Natsusa, because of which he had to say goodbye to his favorite sport. And rugby for a guy is his whole life. A friend in an accident suffered less.
Since Yuzuki Natsusa could not act as a player in the team, the guy found another way – to become its manager. But it was not so simple. Before understanding the specifics of the new work, he had to face many difficulties: from global (misunderstanding with colleagues), to domestic (shaking sand from towels before washing).
Yes, others will treat the once brilliant player with compassion, but Yuzuki does not intend to give up. His fighting spirit, determination and rigidity will allow the team to conquer the heights. Difficult work lies ahead to achieve this. All the guys are different, problems can not be avoided. But they are ready to go this way together, no matter what it costs them…
