The official website for the television anime of Atami Michinoku's Fudanshi Kōkō Seikatsu (Rotten Boys' High School Life) manga announced on Friday that the anime will premiere on Tuesday, July 5 on the AT-X channel. It will also run on the Teletama, KBS Kyoto, tvk, and Sun TV channels, and will repeat on AT-X every Thursday, Sunday, and Monday.

The comedy depicts the daily life of Sakaguchi, a high school boy and also a "fudanshi" who loves boys-love stories. Fudanshi is a wordplay on fujoshi (literally, "rotten girls") — the slang for women who love boys-love/yaoi stories.

The cast includes:

  • Wataru Hatano as Sakaguchi
  • Kenji Nojima as Nakamura, "Sakaguchi's (normal) friend"
  • Aya Suzaki as Rumi Nishihara, a female fujoshi
  • Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Yūjirō Shiratori, Sakaguchi's gay friend
  • Toshiki Masuda as Akira Ueda, Shiratori's servant who has a crush on his boss and will do anything for him
  • Kōtarō Nishiyama as Daigo, Sakaguchi's schoolmate and another fudanshi

Toshikatsu Tokoro (Moeyo Ken, Soul Link) is directing the anime at EMT Squared (Kumamiko) and Chika Ishida is designing the characters. Nobuyuki Abe is directing the sound at Dax Production. Dream Creation is producing.

The manga launched on Ichijinsha's web site Zero Sum Online on May 1, 2015, and Ichijinsha published the manga's second compiled volume on April 25.
