According to their website they have about 200 employees. Judging by the amount of contracts that the studio is taking on, they're probably trying to make up for their losses in previous years. As it's a common occurrence for studios to take on more contracts when their sales are not doing well (e.g. AIC, Production IMS, GONZO, Madhouse, etc).

Not until MAPPA gives their employees a well-deserved break.

I know MAPPA is a big studio but Jesus they just keep on pumping out anime.

Anyways, this looks like a spiritual successor to Free! I am intrigued.

Same feelings as many of the users above. As if MAPPA doesn't have enough on their plate already.

But well, MAPPA Originals are usually fairly good so I'll check this out.

@SparkingVolt Beats me, lol.

Water polo is really big where I live and it's one of my favorite sports so seeing this got me quite excited, then saw MAPPA's name and excitement is kinda gone. They really don't care it seems, if they could they would gladly take every project under the sun. Really one of the crappiest studios of our time. Since this is coming this year and it's mappa who is juggling trillion projects at once I don't have expectations for this looking great. Will likely have cg swimmers and stuff.

And here we go with the triggered incels who can't bear an all male cast in a sports anime and are going to scream "fujo bait" before the show is even out. They'll be snobbish and call this "fujo trash" and "below their standards" while watching ecchi harem shows and the same OP MC isekais. Just let people enjoy whatever they want and you do the same.

As if chainsaw man, a possible AOT part-2, heion sedai no idaten-tachi, yuri on ice (movie) wasn't enough, I mean it only adds more workload on the animators and staff.i hope they all succeed in all these upcoming projects though..

Animes that revolve around high school life sports dont always tend to attract the viewer so I hope this project won't be a drag for the studio since they already have much bigger projects coming up. For instance: Chainsaw man, I haven't read a lot of it but I am sure most of the things would be hard to animate, Yuri on Ice! movie and Zombieland Saga sequel as well.
As for the non-sequel shows they are adapting a manga by Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon's creator and then there is this one, 'Re-main'. Must be pretty hard for the staff, wish them luck.

So true. The people who think like that are such hypocrites.

to forge a path into the marrow of the spirit.
They chose to drown in a deeper vacancy,
an emptiness that quells the null,

Now they are EXTREMELY based.

They really don't know how to give their employees time to recover huh.

Original anime from mappa few years ago would have been really interesting to see but this really doesn't look promising. Waiting for the day when mappa too will fall like predecessor madhouse

But they could have made it more like Yuri On Ice and had the men compete professionally.
