Kaori Makita (Yuri!!! on Ice, Banana Fish episode director) is directing the film at GRIZZLY (Yarichin Bitch-bu).

I trust the director but not.the animation studio.

Even if the animation is average (I actually kinda wish a hentai studio got it but whatever) I'll still watch it because I love Kou Yoneda stories.

Given at how explicit (aka smutty) this manga is I wonder how much of the adult scenes they'd animate... haha :v it's a good read if you don't mind the genre, probably one of the better yakuza stories for a BL series. But if it's gonna be a half assed adaptation like Dakaichi then I'd rather it stop now lol

It's crazy how so many BL are getting animated. Even Fuji TV is cashing in on the popularity.

Actually, it's not crazy because the past few BL shows have made production companies a lot of money.


DAKAICHI has consistently sold over 6k to 7k for every single volume.

Yarichin OVA has sold nearly 5k this week.

Doukyuusei sold over 20k copies.


Almost all BL shows have made money so no wonder committees are finally taking the genre seriously.

What matters now is who the voice actors are for the two main characters. Hopefully they fit.

I have reservations since a masochist as the protagonist isn't completely my cup of tea but, regardless, it's more BL with a hot muscle stud along with a few other ikemen so I'm happy either way.

For once I'd like there to be a BL anime where the protagonist uke is the sadist rather than the masochist though. Uke stereotypes/tropes be damned. Twisted Evil

There's a drama CD so they may bring back those voice actors.
(I haven't heard it so don't know how fitting they are)

The voice actors for the drama cd:

Doumeki - Hatano Wataru
Yashiro - Shingaki Tarusuke

Kageyama - Yasumoto Hiroki
Kuga - Ono Yuuki

I haven't listened to it very much, but I think the voices work for the characters pretty well. I like listening to the NightS: Reply (with Maeno Tomoaki x Majima Junji)

Oh Em Eff Gee.

YESSSSSSSS!!! And it's (hopefully) not going to be similar to previous watered-down TV series!! I am absolutely stoked for this! The drama CD cast is PERFECT so they better keep it. (Didn't get to watch the trailer with sound because I'm at work so I'm not sure if there was any spoken dialogue.)

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Oh happy days!

This looks interesting although I haven't read the manga (will have to do that) so I'm definitely looking forward to it. Oh if only they could do an anime of the Viewfinder series by Ayano Yamane, I'd be ecstatic.
