The animated adaptation of Yuu Muraokathe judo manga Mu Ippon! doesn’t debut until next year, but collaborations are already underway to build hype for the upcoming series. Naturally, the show is associated with the Japan Judo Federation first of all!

The collaboration is celebrated with a new piece of artwork, featuring series protagonist Michi Sonoda with a Japan national team logo emblazoned on her uniform:
