posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Aniplex opened a website on Sunday to announce that Hashigo Sakurabi's Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. (I'm Being Threatened by the Handsomest Man) manga is getting a television anime adaptation that will premiere this year. The website is also streaming an announcement video. (Note: the announcement video on the website is region-locked to Japan, a region-free version is below.)
The anime will star the same cast as an earlier drama CD:
Yuuki Ono as Junta Azumaya
Hiroki Takahashi as Takato Saijyo
In the manga's story, Takato Saijyo has reigned as the idol industry's "Most Huggable" for five years, that is, until freshman actor Junta Azumaya. Takato was always considered brusque while Azumaya's smile is winning over admirers by comparison. The whole fiasco drives Takuto to over indulge in alcohol and his actions catch the attention of the last person he wants to see. To his surprise, Azumaya uses this new info to blackmail Takuto for physical affection.
Sakurabi launched the manga in Libre Shuppan's Monthly Magazine Be x Boy in July 2013. Libre Shuppan will publish the manga's fifth volume on March 30. The manga has more than 2 million copies in print.
