The official website for the Tennis no Ōjisama BEST GAMES!! original video anime (OVA) project began streaming the second promotional video for the third OVA volume on Monday. The video previews the OVA's ending theme song "DISPECT" by Yuki Kaida, Showtaro Morikubo, and Junko Minagawa as their respective characters. (Click on the image below to watch the promotional video.)
The third OVA features a match between Shūsuke Fuji and Akaya Kirihara from the Kantō Tournament. It will screen in theaters in Japan for two weeks starting on November 15. The anime will then ship on home video on January 28, 2020.
The OVA project retells the story of the franchise's top matches. The first OVA, which features a match between Tezuka and Atobe from the Kantō Tournament, began its limited two-week screening in Japan last August, and shipped in Japan on home video last October.
The second OVA features two doubles matches: the first match is Shuichiro Oishi and Eiji Kikumaru's game against Hiroshi Yagyū and Masaharu Niō, while the second match is Ryō Shishido and Chōtarō Otori's game against Sahadaru Inui and Kaoru Kaidō. The OVA screened in Japanese theaters for two weeks starting on April 5, then shipped on home video on June 25.
Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Mayo Chiki!, Hayate the Combat Butler) is directing the project at M.S.C. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, The Prince of Tennis II OVA vs. Genius 10) is returning to handle series composition and write the scripts. Akiharu Ishii is again designing the characters, and Cher Watanabe is returning to compose the music.
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.

Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
