Nearly a whole year after Extreme Hearts‘ announcement, we’ve finally received confirmation that the project is a TV anime coming in Summer 2022!

Set in the near future, the series will center on “Hyper Sports” hobby contests, which utilize “Extreme Gear” support items and are popular among children and adults alike.
