Since 2012 Shin Itagaki wrote and directed Teekyu, made more Teekyu, made more Teekyu, storyboarded a bit of Wake Up, Girls!, made more Teekyu, made more Teekyu and spin-off Usakame, made Berserk, made more Teekyu and got attached to 2017’s Wake Up, Girls New Chapter. Maybe there will be a second season of Berserk in ’17 too. But, episode 96, “Saturday Night Fever with Senpai,” concluded with a note suggesting that we might not have seen the last of Itagaki on anime #1 sports series.
So, Teekyu nine, when?
