Tonbo! is out now on Amazon Prime

Written by Ross Locksley on 10 Apr 2024

Beloved golfing manga Tonbo! has been released in the West on Amazon Prime. The series appears in Japan's most popular Golfing magazine, Weekly Golf Digest, and has sold more than 1.9 million tankobon copies in Japan alone. Masakazu Kubo, creator of the classic Pokemon TV series is the Executive Producer and production is handled by studio OLM, which gives the series some serious pedigree. 

Adding to the raft of talent, Jin Gu Oh (Pokemon Horizons, Beyblade Burst) is directing and BAFTA Nominated composer Nobuko Toda (Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045, Suzume, Ultraman) provides the series' score.

The series follows Tonbo, a young girl living on a remote island who meets an ex-golf champion living in exile. A natural talent who started playing at age 8, she starts with nothing more than a 3-iron (the real-world Jumbo MTNIII Pro Model), her adventure begins as she sets off to become history's greatest golfing champion, beginning in Tokara, via Kumamoto and then into the wider world. As she travels she'll meet more players and learn new techniques and acquiring more clubs, increasing her options and finding new ways to win.

The first episode is available to view now on Amazon Prime.
