Buddy Go! TV Anime's 3rd Episode Streamed
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
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.
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.
