The Spring 2022 badminton anime Love All Play kicked off on April 2, bringing Asami Koseki’s novel of the same name to the screen in style. Now the story is going back to the page in a new manga adaptation, which just launched via Shueisha’s Tonari no Young Jump website on April 8.

The second chapter of the series went live on April 15.

Koseki’s original novel debuted back in May of 2011, with three followup novels arriving after. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the anime adaptation as it airs.


The protagonist, Ryo Mizushima, enters a junior high school and joins the badminton club on the spur of the moment. Although there are no proper instructors at the school, Ryo’s physical strength allows him to improve to the point where he is able to participate in the prefectural tournament. Then Ryo is approached by Ebihara, the famous coach of the prestigious Yokohama Minato High School badminton club. Ryo, who is indecisive and humble, hesitates to go to the school, but his older sister, Rika, who is the top student in her third year there, gives him a strong push and he decides to go. Blessed with a coach and teammates at high school, Ryo gains the experience he’s been lacking and aims to win the Inter-High School Championship!
