posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The Sanrio Danshi (Sanrio Boys) multimedia project can officially add music to its line up. The mascot-loving ikemen are releasing their first single, "Fun! Fantastic girl!" on November 16. The song, produced by Elements Garden, is the theme song for the Sanrio Danshi ~Watashi, Koi o, Shirimashita~ (Sanrio Boys ~I knew love~) smartphone dating app game. The game launched last month.
The single will include the "Fun! Fantastic girl!" track with vocals and without vocals as well as the "Tanoshii Puroland Keikaku" (Fun Puroland Plan) original voice drama.
The cast includes:
Takuya Eguchi (Haikyu!!'s Yūji Terushima, My Love Story!!'s Takeo Gōda) as Kōta Hasegawa, a high school boy who loves Pom Pom Purin
Sōma Saitō (Dance with Devils' Rem Kaginuki, Rokka: Braves of Six Flowers' Adlet Myer) as Yū Mizuno, who loves My Melody
Jun Oosuka (Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu's Ogawa) as Shunsuke Yoshino, who loves Hello Kitty
Hiroyuki Kagura (Bungo Stray Dogs' Kenji Miyazawa) as Ryō Nishimiya, who loves Little Twin Stars
Yūma Uchida (King of prism's Yū Suzuno, Gundam Build Fighters Try's Yūma Kōsaka) as Seiichiro Minamoto, who loves Cinnamoroll
The Sanrio Boys are a group of high school boys with a soft spot for Sanrio characters; they bond over their shared interest and feel less ashamed of their love of cuteness. The player character has five eligible boyfriends and can reach two types of endings. She can also bond with the boys over their shared love of Sanrio characters — with couple-coordinated outfits and rooms.
