Kiss Him, Not Me TV Anime's 1st Video Teases Fujoshi Lead's Dilemma
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the television anime of Junko's Kiss Him, Not Me (Watashi ga Motete Dōsunda) manga began streaming a promotional video on Sunday. The same video debuted at the TBS Animation booth at Comic Market on Friday. In addition to introducing the story, the video previews the animation and the voice cast for the first time.
Crunchyroll is releasing chapters of the manga in North America as Kodansha publishes them in Japan, and it describes the story:
Kae Serinuma is what you'd call a "fujoshi." When she sees boys getting along with each other, she loves to indulge in wild fantasies! One day her favorite anime character dies and the shock causes her to lose a ton of weight. Then four hot guys at school ask her out, but that isn't exciting to her at all — she'd rather see them date each other!
The cast includes:
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Hayato Shinomiya
Yuuki Ono as Yūsuke Igarashi
Nobunaga Shimazaki as Asuma Mutsumi
Keisuke Koumoto as Nozomu Nanashima
Miyuki Sawashiro as Shima Nishina
Hiroshi Ishiodori (Peach Girl, Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino) is directing the anime at Brains Base. Michiko Yokote (Shirobako, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Dagashikashi) is in charge of series composition. Kazuhiko Tamura (Gunparade Orchestra, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien ~Next Season~, Kyōkai no Rinne) is designing the characters for animation. Mina Ōsawa (Actually, I Am…, Nurse Witch Komugi R) is the chief animation director.
From4to7, a band composed of the anime's main male voice actors (Yuuki Ono, Keisuke Koumoto, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, and Nobunaga Shimazaki), is singing the show's opening theme, "Prince x Prince," and Rie Murakawa (Non Non Biyori, Is the order a rabbit?) is singing the ending theme, "Doki Doki no Kaze" (Heartbeat's Wind).
The show will premiere in October on TBS and BS-TBS. An advanced screening of the first episode will take place on September 19 at Tokyo's Kagaku Gijutsukan Science Hall.
Junko began the manga in Bessatsu Friend in 2013. Kodansha USA is publishing the series in North America.
