Martial arts is applied to two entirely different athletic pursuits in a pair of new character preview videos for Extreme Hearts, an upcoming original TV anime that mixes sports with idol singing activities.
The first preview video focuses on Yukino Tachibana (CV: Ayaka Fukuhara), a 2nd year high school student who practices kendo at her family’s dojo and who is not directly involved in afterschool club activities. The second preview video focuses on Lise Kohinata (CV: Ari Ozawa), a second year middle school student who used to study karate and who enjoys watching sports and posting videos online as a hobby.

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.
