Tribe Nine is a multimedia franchise created by Kazutaka Kodaka, the mind behind the iconic video game series Danganronpa. The franchise consists of an anime television series produced by Liden Films and directed by Yu Aoki (Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga) which began airing on Jan. 10. It is set in the year 20XX, a dystopian future where young people have formed tribes and ravaged the streets of Neo-Tokyo due to growing violence and group loyalty. To combat the increasingly volatile state of the city, the government establishes the "XB Law," which states that all disputes between conflicting tribes are to be settled by games of "Extreme Baseball," a futuristic iteration of the sport monitored by robot umpires.
Tribe Nine centers around the timid Haru Shirokane who is rescued by Shun Kamiya and Taiga after he is attacked by a group of bullies. Shun, a legendary player of Extreme Baseball, recruits Haru and Taiga into the top-ranked Minato tribe after a series of circumstances leads to him spotting potential in the pair to become aces of the sport themselves. Thus begins a journey of self discovery, fast-paced action and intense battles as the threat of the Chiyoda Tribe's leader, Oujiro Otori, looms closer. A 3D action role-playing game set in Tribe Nine's world is also currently being developed by Kodaka's video game company, Too Kyo Games, for smartphones.
