DAKAICHI Anime Listed with 13 Episodes

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

The official website for the television anime of Hashigo Sakurabi's Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. (DAKAICHI -I'm being harassed by the sexiest man of the year-) manga is listing that the anime will have seven home video releases and 13 episodes. The first home video release will feature one episode, and all subsequent home video releases will feature two episodes each. The home video releases will ship once a month between November and May.

The anime premiered in Japan on October 5. Aniplex of America is streaming the series on Crunchyroll as it airs in Japan.

In the manga's story, Takato Saijyo has reigned as the idol industry's "Most Handsome" for five years — that is, until freshman actor Junta Azumaya comes along. Takato was always considered brusque, while Azumaya's smile wins over admirers in comparison. The whole fiasco drives Takuto to overindulge in alcohol, and his actions catch the attention of the last person he wants to see. To his surprise, Azumaya uses this new info to blackmail Takuto for physical affection.

Naoyuki Tatsuwa (Nisekoi - False Love, Gourmet Girl Graffiti) is directing the anime at CloverWorks, and Yoshimi Narita (Saint Seiya Omega, Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart.) is in charge of series composition. Minako Shiba (Noir, .hack//SIGN, Black Butler) is designing the characters, and she is also credited as chief animation director alongside Senri Kawaguchi and Yu Kurihara.

Sakurabi launched the manga in Libre Shuppan's Monthly Magazine Be x Boy in July 2013. Libre Shuppan published the manga's fifth volume on March 30. The manga has more than 2 million copies in print.
