The official website for animator Soubi Yamamoto's independent Kono Danshi (This Boy) projects opened a page for the third title, Kono Danshi, Akunin to Yobaremasu. (This Boy Is Called a Bad Man.) Unlike the previous two works, Kono Danshi, Akunin to Yobaremasu. will launch as a drama CD.
The story revolves around an "extremely ordinary" 17-year-old high school girl named Akane Shinonome (voiced by Miku Itō). Akane ends up working part-time in a jack-of-all-trades service called H&H Co. through some unusual circumstances.
There, she meets four "overly individual" young men:
Ryohei Kimura as the 28-year-old "ikemen [super handsome] feminist" Seven. His true nature is seemingly inscrutable to everyone but the President of the company.
Takahiro Mizushima as the 15-year-old prodigy K who is brilliant at computers, politics, economics, arts, sports, and just about everything else — except for fashion. (He wears the same sloppy clothes every day.)
Takashi Kondo as the 23-year-old likable, self-proclaimed hero Justice
Toshiyuki Morikawa as the 35-year-old President of H&H Co.
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Yukihito Sera, the 23-year-old rookie detective keeping tabs on H&H Co. on orders from his superiors.
As a 21-year-old, Yamamoto made her scriptwriting and directorial debut in 2011 with the first 28-minute Kono Danshi anime, Kono Danshi, Uchū-jin to Tatakaemasu. (This Boy Can Fight Aliens!). Her followup, Kono Danshi, Ningyo Hiroimashita. (This Boy Caught a Merman), arrived last year. Sentai Filmworks licensed both for North America, and it just shipped This Boy Caught a Merman on Tuesday.
