Shoujo Fight Volleyball Manga Scores OVA

Sounds like a standard sports manga, but with female characters. In swimsuits.


Word from Comic Natalie is that Yoko Nihonbashi's manga Shoujo Fight-- a seinen sports manga revolving around a women's high school volleyball team --is getting an OVA bundled with its sixth volume of manga, coming out on October 23rd. The series really seems to be going places, since the fifth volume came out with a drama CD written by Nihonbashi. So I guess it's a title to keep an eye on! Oh, and did I mention Production I.G is doing the animation? <3

The story revolves primarily around one Neri Ooishi, a volleyball genius who was a runner-up at the nationwide volleyball tournament back in elementary school. Going into her next school she wants to avoid standing out, so she skips out on volleyball...but once she goes into high school, she gets steered back into the team.

So if you ever looked at Slam Dunk and other classic shounen sports series and thought "man, this would be so much better with chicks in skintight outfits," this might be the one for you. Or not-- these aren't bikinis we're talking about here. And the girls are a bit on the butch side. Still, sounds kinda cool.

The girls being on the "butch" side, as you put it, makes it much much much cooler if you ask me.  
 
Akagi taught me that subject matter that I don't give a crap about can be way interesting with a good approach, so I'll keep an eye out.
