“Tsurune” – the sound produced by the bow when releasing an arrow.
For an archer, creating a beautiful “tsurune” is pure joy that seizes the heart and never lets go. The same sound can never be produced twice – Each “tsurune” is a unique meeting and farewell.
For Minato Narumiya, it all began with “tsurune…”
The story depicts the trajectory of young first-year high school boys which soars like an arrow on an endless arc. Through Japanese archery, they gain invaluable life experiences and friends.
A brilliant coming-of-age “Kyudo” (Japanese archery) anime!
