Daily Lives of High School Boys Manga Gets TV Anime in January

posted on by Egan Loo

Square Enix's Gangan Online website announced on Thursday at midnight that a television anime adaptation of Yasunobu Yamauchi's Daily Lives of High School Boys (Danshi Kōkōsei no Nichijō) web manga has been green-lit for a January premiere. As the title indicates, the gag comedy manga follows the humorous yet "realistic" everyday life of Tadakuni, Hidenori, Yoshitake, and other students at a boys' high school. Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, School Rumble) is directing the anime at Sunrise, and the anime has the following cast:

Miyu Irino as Tadakuni
Tomokazu Sugita as Hidenori
Kenichi Suzumura as Yoshitake
Noriko Hidaka as Bungaku Shōjo
Aoi Yūki as RINGO Chan
Ayahi Takagaki as Tadakuni's sister
Daisuke Namikawa as Motoharu
Yūki Ono as Karasawa
Hiroki Yasumoto as Vice President
Akira Ishida as President
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Mitsuo
Yū Kobayashi as Yanagin
Yukana as Habara
Chiwa Saito as Ikushima

Ai Yoshimura (episode director on Gintama, Oreimo) is serving as assistant director, and Yoshinori Yumoto (Battle Spirits: Brave, Strait Jacket) is designing the characters and overseeing the animation.

Yamauchi launched the manga in 2009, and the fourth compiled book volume shipped this past April.
