Boys-Love Manga Hitorijime My Hero Gets Anime
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official Twitter account of Ichijinsha's Gateau boys-love manga magazine announced on Tuesday that Memeco Arii's Hitorijime My Hero manga has an anime adaptation in the works. The announcement did not specify the format of the anime.
The Twitter post also notes that the manga has over 700,000 copies in print.
Hitorijime My Hero is a spinoff series of Arii's earlier Hitorijime Boyfriend manga, and it focuses on the high school teacher Kōsuke Ōshiba, and the incompetent delinquent Masahiro Setagawa. Both characters appeared in Hitorijime Boyfriend, and Kōsuke is the brother of the earlier manga's protagonist Kensuke.
Arii launched the spinoff series in Gateau in 2012. Ichijinsha published the manga's fourth compiled book volume in April 2015, and will publish the fifth volume (seen right) this Friday, July 15. The series inspired a drama CD last November starring Toshiki Masuda as Kōsuke, Taku Yashiro as Masahiro, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Shinnosuke Tachibana. A second drama CD is slated for August 24.
Arii and Ichijinsha published Hitorijme Boyfriend in 2010, and JManga released the manga digitally in North America in 2012.
