In Rising Impact, Gawain Nanaumi is a third-grader with an incredible love for baseball and making the ball really fly. In a chance encounter with a female professional golfer, Kiria Nishino, he learns that golf will allow him to hit a ball further than any other sport.

Using his physical strength and keen observational skills gained from living in a rural mountain area, he manages to hit the ball to such an impressive distance that it rivals even that of professionals. With Kiria’s help, the new golf enthusiast enrolls at Camelot Academy, a prestigious school for both skilled and aspiring golfers from around the world. Gawain wants to be the best professional golfer in the world but there are other golf prodigies with extraordinary skills that stand in his way and he has to face various trials to overcome them.

The Rising Impact manga ran from 1998 to 2022 in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. It was originally supposed to end in 1999, but returned after around three months due to the response from readers.

Rising Impact is the latest golf anime announced in recent years. An adaptation of Ken Kawasaki and Yuu Furusawa‘s Oi! Tonbo manga is also set for a 2024 release, while the original anime BIRDIE WING -Golf Girls’ Story- premiered its second season in April of this year.
