The Tsurune Light Novels
The Tsutune anime series is based on the light novels of the same name written by Kotoko Ayano and illustrated by Chinatsu Morimoto.
The plot focuses on Minato Narumiya, a kyūdō* Practitioner resuming his passion for archery after suffering an incident during his last middle school tournament.
In addition to the anime series, the light novels also inspired an anime film – Tsurune: The First Shot (Gekijōban Tsurune: Hajimari no Issha), which premiered in Japanese theaters on August 19, 2022.
Kyūdō* (弓道, also transliterated Kyuudou) is the Japanese martial art of archery that has its roots in Kyūjutsu (弓術, “the art of archery”) originally practiced by the samurai of feudal Japan.
