Love is in the air this summer because another Boys Love anime is coming to the ranks. “Hitorijime My Hero” is a manga that is currently being drawn and written by manga artist and creator Memeco Arii. The story follows the unwittingly incompetent delinquent Masahiro Setagawa who catches feelings highs chool teacher and former delinquent Kōsuke Ōshiba.
This manga is originally a spinoff to Arii’s earlier work “Hitorijime Boyfriend” that was first published in 2010. It was published in Gateau in 2012. From reading the first few chapters ahead to get a clue of the tone of the series, I can tell that this anime will be a typical school life series with its share of drama and light-hearted comedy!
It is also going to have the voice actors from the dramas CDs as the same character voices in the anime itself. Tomoaki Maeno as Kōsuke Ōshiba, and Toshiki Masuda as Masahiro Setagawa. The head director will be Yukina Hiiro who has done the anime “Gakuen Heaven.”
The premiere of the anime is slated for July by Encourage Films!
