ABOUT PING PONG THE ANIMATION
SYNOPSIS: From the acclaimed director Masaaki Yuasa (Adventure Time, Space Dandy) comes an innovative new series with stunning animation, memorable characters, and impressive footwork.
Smile and Peco. Peco and Smile. Besties from the beginning, both with a badass backhand. Peco is known for his arrogance on the table tennis court, and Smile for his silence. But with a new school year and a new high school table tennis team, both boys are in for a challenge, on–and off–the court.
Peco’s slacker ways are hurting his game, and after getting crushed in a tournament, he decides to quit. Smile is finally learning to harness his natural talents, but can he squash his sympathy for his opponents enough to beat them.
Check out the trailer for the series below.
