The official website for the television anime of Hashigo Sakurabi's Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. (I'm Being Threatened by the Handsomest Man) manga revealed the anime's staff, additional cast member, and October premiere on Monday.

Naoyuki Tatsuwa (Nisekoi - False Love, Gourmet Girl Graffiti) is directing the anime at CloverWorks, and Yoshimi Narita (Saint Seiya Omega, Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart.) is in charge of series composition. Minako Shiba (Noir, .hack//SIGN, Black Butler) is designing the characters, and is also credited as chief animation director alongside Senri Kawaguchi and Yu Kurihara.

Miyu Yamamoto is the color key designer. Satory Hirayanagi is the art director. Koyuki Koyama is the director of photography. Yuusuke Noma and Yūto Karasawa are the CG directors. Michi Takigawa is the editor. Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music, and Satoshi Motoyama is the sound director.

The anime will premiere in October on the Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, and BS11 channels.

The anime's official Twitter account also revealed that Wataru Hatano will voice the character Kiyotaka Arisu (seen below). The character only recently debuted in the original manga.

The rest of the cast will feature the same cast as an earlier drama CD:

Yūki 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 published the manga's fifth volume on March 30. The manga has more than 2 million copies in print.
