Natsuki Hanae Is 1 of 12 Pillow Boys in Makura no Danshi TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
Makura no Danshi, the new television anime from Earth Star Entertainment (Encouragement of Climb, Teekyū, Wanna Be the Strongest in the World), will premiere this July. The anime promises a "new and novel 'sleeping side-by-side' experience entirely in the first-person perspective" to "heal tired hearts."
Natsuki Hanae will play one of 12 "makura no danshi" (pillow boys), all full of distinctly individual personalities and each catering to viewers who like a certain "type." The boys all live in the same town underneath a starry sky. Each of the "makura no danshi" will star his own weekly episode as they "sleep beside you and whisper."
Yuniko Ayana (Kinmoza! Kiniro + Mosaic, Futsū no Joshikōsei ga Locodol Yattemita) and Ayumi Sekine (scripts on Inari Kon Kon, WATAMOTE) are writing the scenario, and Mika Yamamoto (Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising-, Sengoku Basara 4's alternate costume designs) designed the characters. Assez Finaud Fabric and feel. (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!, Futsū no Joshikōsei ga Locodol Yattemita, Minamike Tadaima) are producing the anime.
