Anime Spotlight - Kiss Him, Not Me

by Chih-Chieh Chang,
On air starting October 6, 2016 (in Japan)


A prince should be with a prince.
My happiness comes from peeping on the sidelines, uninvolved in the magic before me…


Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!


Kae Serinuma (CV: Yū Kobayashi)

The main character. A yaoi-loving girl that loves to watch boys being friendly with each other, or to fantasize about them.

Yūsuke Igarashi (CV: Tomoki Ono)

A sporty classmate on the soccer team. With the clean looks, he is popular in class. Seems straight-laced, but is actually quickest at working on girls!?

Nozomu Nanashima (CV: Keisuke Kōmoto)

A flashy-looking classmate. Used to be on the soccer team. Has a sharp tongue but is straightforward. He looks like "Shion" that Kae loves.

Hayato Shinomiya (CV: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka)

An underclassman that is an elite student. Health Committee member like Kae. Normally a prideful "tsun" pretty boy, but when complimented he turns "dere" and is cute. For Kae, he is like a princess.

Asuma Mutsumi (CV: Nobunaga Shimazaki)

An upperclassman that is into sub-cultures. In the History Club together with Kae. Has a mind as broad as Buddha. Creates a friendly atmosphere with naturally airheaded statements. Soothes Kae.

Shima Nishina (CV: Miyuki Sawashiro)

Attractive underclassman girl. A well-to-do girl that is extremely rich. Goes to Maldives for the new year every year. Like Kae, she is a yaoi-loving girl.
