Yukina Hiiro (Gakuen Heaven, Chu-Bra!!) is directing the anime at Encourage Films. Yūsei Naruse is in charge of the series scripts, and Ayana Nishino (Aquarion Logos) is serving as character designer and chief animation director.
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.
Wataru Hatano is performing the opening theme song "Heart Signal" for the series. The anime series will premiere in July.
Arii launched the spinoff series in Gateau in 2012. Ichijinsha published the manga's fifth compiled book volume last July. The manga's sixth volume will ship in both a standard and a special edition on June 29. The manga has over 700,000 copies in print.
The series inspired a drama CD in November 2015, and a second drama CD shipped last August.
Arii and Ichijinsha published Hitorijme Boyfriend in 2010, and JManga released the manga digitally in North America in 2012.
