New key visual revealed for anime premiering on July 8

The official website for the television anime of Memeco Arii's Hitorijime My Hero manga began streaming the show's long promotional video on Friday. The video previews Wataru Hatano's opening theme song "Heart Signal."

The website also revealed a new key visual.

The anime will premiere on AT-X on July 8 at 11:30 p.m. and will then air later that evening on Tokyo MX, and on BS-NTV on July 11. The series will stream on dTV.

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. The anime's four main cast members — Tomoaki Maeno, Toshiki Masuda, Shinnosuke Tachibana, and Yoshitsugu Matsuoka — are performing the ending theme song.

The anime stars:

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 will ship the manga's sixth volume in both a standard and a special edition on June 29. The manga has over 700,000 copies in print. Arii and Ichijinsha published Hitorijme Boyfriend in 2010, and JManga released the manga digitally in North America in 2012.
