CloverWorks TV anime starring Yūki Ono, Hiroki Takahashi premieres in October

The official website for the television anime of Hashigo Sakurabi's Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. (I'm Being Threatened by the Most Handsome Man) manga began streaming the anime's first promotional video on Tuesday. (Note: The official YouTube video in the official website is region-locked to Japan. A region-free video is embedded below.)

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

Five of the anime's cast members are reprising their roles from an earlier drama CD for the manga:

Yuuki Ono as Junta Azumaya


Hiroki Takahashi as Takato Saijyo


  • Takuya Sato as Chihiro Ayagi
  • Yuma Uchida as Ryō Narumiya
  • Kousuke Toriumi as Kazuomi Usaka

Wataru Hatano will voice the character Kiyotaka Arisu (seen below). The character only recently debuted in the original manga.

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.

In the manga's story, Takato Saijyo has reigned as the idol industry's "Most Handsome" 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.
