The awe-fantastic Chinese sports donghua of 2023, Left Hand Layup! or Zuo Shou Shang Lan had captured the hearts of many viewers since it first aired in February, and now, even Japanese anime fans had been amazed by how awesome this donghua is as we seldom get such quality from a Chinese-made animation.
The donghua premiered on February 2 and it’s been slated to run for 8 episodes until March 16, 2023.

Hence, we may expect some announcement or further development for the donghua after its finale.
