The official YouTube channel for Shueisha's Ribon magazine began streaming the second episode on Sunday for the television anime adaptation of Minori Kurosaki's Buddy Go! manga.

The channel previously streamed the first episode on March 31.

The "cross-dressing romance" centers around Ai Shizukuishi, a shy, plain girl with not-so-great grades and a secret. She posted videos of her dancing in male clothes onto Smile Dōga (an homage to the real-life streaming service Niconico Dōga, which literally means "Smile Video"), and she became a viral hit. Ai aims to beat Hayate, the "godly" "prince of dance" on Smile Dōga. However, her cross-dressing dances happen to catch the eye of AN Entertainment agency, so she makes her professional debut — in an idol unit with Hayate. On top of that, the two have to share quarters under the agency's rules.

Asami Shimoda is starring as Ai and Nobuhiko Okamoto is co-starring as Hayate.

The anime is airing for three episodes during the Oha-Suta (Good Morning Star) variety program on the TV Tokyo network at 7:05 a.m. on April 6, April 12, and April 19.

Kurosaki launched the manga in Ribon in September 2014, and Shueisha published the fourth volume on March 25. Other anime adaptations of Ribon manga that have aired on the Oha-Suta variety program include: Nanairo Kakumei, Nekota no Koto ga Ki ni Natte Shikatanai., Tsubasa to Hotaru, Onnanoko tte., Sugar Soldier, Romantica Clock, Nagareboshi Lens, Zekkyō Gakkyū, Crash!, Hiyokoi, and Chocotan!.
