Tsurune Season 2 teaser visual

Tsurune is based on the light novels written by Kotoko Ayano and illustrated by Chinatsu Morimoto, which were published by Kyoto Animation in 2016 and 2018.

The first season was streamed by Crunchyroll, with a follow up movie released earlier this month.

Crunchyroll describes the plot of the anime this way:

When Narumiya Minato joins Prefectural Kazemai High School, he is quickly invited to join the archery club by the club’s advisor, Tommy-sensei. His childhood friends Takehaya Seiya and Yamanouchi Ryohei swiftly agree to join, but Minato is hesitant at first.

Because Minato is the rare student with experience in archery, Tommy-sensei orders him to give a demonstration, which Minato does… except his arrow doesn’t hit the target. It is revealed that Minato has developed a terrible dysfunction regarding archery.
