Attack on Tomorrow

Attack on Tomorrow (あしたへアタック!, Ashita he Ataku?) was an anime series that aired in 1977 in Japan. There were a total of 23 episodes aired at 25 minutes each. It is a spinoff of Attack No. 1. It was also known in Europe as Smash (French) and Mimi e le ragazze della pallavolo (Italian).
The story is about Mimi Hijiri, a student with only one school year remaining, who decides to revitalize a volleyball team low on morale from the death of one of its team member from an accident.
The series was created as a tribute to the gold medal Japanese women's volleyball team in the 1976 Olympics.
While the show would eventually air in the European market in the 1980s in countries such as France and Italy, the plot and concept was too similar to its predecessor Attack No. 1. The show ceased production after only 23 episodes. Another of Shiro Jinbo's works, Hana no Ko Lunlun, was much more successful globally as an anime a few years later
In the French version "Smash", Mimi is Virginia Tessier. In the Italian dub, she is Mimi Miceri. In both languages, most of the other character names were changed as well.
Mitsuko Horie performed both the opening and ending theme songs in the original Japanese version.
