Anime adapts Memeco Arii's boys-love spinoff manga

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Memeco Arii's Hitorijime My Hero manga revealed on Monday that the series will premiere in July. The site also revealed a teaser visual, and an "image promotional video."

Hitorijime My Hero is a spinoff series of Arii's earlier Hitorijime Boyfriend manga, and it focuses on the high school teacher Kōsuke Ōshiba, and the incompetent delinquent Masahiro Setagawa. Both characters appeared in Hitorijime Boyfriend, and Kōsuke is the brother of the earlier manga's protagonist Kensuke.

Arii launched the spinoff series in Gateau in 2012. Ichijinsha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume last July. The manga's sixth volume will ship in both a standard and a special edition on June 29. The manga has over 700,000 copies in print.

The series inspired a drama CD in November 2015 starring Toshiki Masuda as Kōsuke, Taku Yashiro as Masahiro, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Shinnosuke Tachibana. A second drama CD shipped last August.

Arii and Ichijinsha published Hitorijme Boyfriend in 2010, and JManga released the manga digitally in North America in 2012.
