posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
A flyer from this year's AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that the anime adaptation of Memeco Arii's Hitorijime My Hero manga will air on television.
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 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.
