Despite the prefectural tournament's breathtaking conclusion, the Kazemai High School Kyudo Club has no time to celebrate. With the national competition right around the corner, the club is determined to prove that their initial victory was not a mere fluke.

With his passion for the sport reignited, Minato Narumiya earnestly prepares for the upcoming competition with his teammates, who are equally motivated to win. As the much-anticipated tournament begins, the members of Kazemai's kyudo team fight to stay on target with their ambitious goal. But when old acquaintances reappear as difficult opponents, the boys find that winning the nationals will require more dedication and effort than ever before.

To say I was surprised with this property getting a season two was an understatement. As much as I, like most, love seeing Kyoto Animation come up with something new, I had to sincerely wonder where things were supposed to go. As a focused character study on Minato coming to ...

Drawing his "Yumi", once more...Regulating his breathing...Releasing the "Ya" that exemplifies Sincerity and Purity.

White velvet clouds rolls in over a blue sky. A brilliance of a new page upon the canvas of consistent hue. Beneath the marvellous sky in the foreground stands five firm figures entwined in colored bands. The sequence concludes with what very well may be a determining shot. That is the OP–the theme is established and the direction of this series has been determined.

Sports Anime are often portrayed with great intensity but "Tsurune" observes the inverse. Tsurune S1 introduced us to the sport of Kyudo: a refined form of archery that centres ...
