posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Hanamaluo's adult romance manga Skirt no Naka wa Kedamono Deshita. (There Was a Beast Inside the Skirt.) is getting a television anime adaptation. An official website for the anime opened on Wednesday and began streaming a teaser promotional video.
The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 2, and an uncut 18+ version will stream on ComicFesta Anime Zone. The anime will have a joint screening event with the Sōryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni... anime on July 1. The event will screen the new anime's first episode and feature a talk show.
The story begins when the reserved Shizuka attends a local mixer party but has trouble adjusting to the atmosphere. A beautiful older female college student named Ryō starts talking to her, and the pair hit it off. Shizuka goes to spend the night at Ryō's place. However, Ryō unexpectedly kisses Shizuka and pushes her down. Shizuka thinks the beautiful woman is a lesbian but soon discovers that Ryō is actually a man dressed as a woman.
The main characters are:
Shizuka Kominami, a quiet and introverted female college student. She is not good at getting into relationships with men.
Ryō Kirishima, the college student who met Shizuka at a mixer. Ryō looks like a dashing female beauty but is actually a crossdresser.
Sōsuke Kuratani, Shizuka's classmate in college. He has a gentle personality and often worries about Shizuka.
Sumire Sakurai, Ryō's classmate in college. She is a beauty pageant winner who is kind and amiable.

Kazuhiro Toda (Hitori no Shita - the outcast assistant director) is in charge of series composition and the scenario. Kenichi Kurata (High School DxD BorN, Rage of Bahamut: Manaria Friends) is art director, and Hisayoshi Hirasawa (Sōryo to Majiwaru Shikiyoku no Yoru ni...) is sound director.
