A dramatic new character preview video has been published for Extreme Hearts, an upcoming original TV anime that combines student athletics and idol singing with a near future twist. The preview video (below) focuses on Saki Kodaka (CV: Miho Ohsaki), a second year middle school student who used to play soccer in elementary school, but who lost sight of her goals when she stopped playing. Saki becomes Hiyori’s “first fan” when Hiyori debuts as a singer / song-writer.

The story of Extreme Hearts is set in the near future, when the hobby of “Hyper Sports” (which are enhanced with special gear and power-up items) has become popular among children and adults alike. The story focuses on Hiyori Hayama, a second year high school student who initially has no connection to “Hyper Sports”, but after a chance encounter this begins to change as Hiyori and her friends grow closer and pursue their athletic dreams.
