Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun Soccer Anime's Video Reveals Image Song, July Debut

Rock band Bentham performs opening song "White"

The official website for the television anime of Taku Sakamoto's Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun (Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun) manga began streaming a promotional video for the anime on Tuesday. The video reveals the anime's July premiere, and it also reveals and previews the anime's image song "Boku kara Kimi e" (From Me to You) by the rock band Bentham.

Bentham is also performing the anime's opening theme song "White." "White's" July 12 CD single will include the title song, "Boku kara Kimi e," "Public," and the instrumental version of "White."

The manga centers on a handsome young soccer genius named Aoyama who is on Japan's team for players under 16 years old. His play style is "cleanliness." He doesn't tackle and doesn't head the ball. If he's doing a throw-in, he'll only do it if he's wearing gloves.

Kazuya Ichikawa (Monster Strike the Animation, Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note) is directing the anime at Studio Hibari, with scripts supervised and written by Midori Gotou (Hozuki's Coolheadedness, The Empire of Corpses). Arisa Matsuura is designing the characters. Pony Canyon is credited for music production, and TMS Entertainment is credited for production.

Sakamoto published the manga in Shueisha's Miracle Jump magazine in 2014, and then resumed the series in Weekly Young Jump in 2015. Shueisha published the manga's seventh compiled book volume on February 17.
