Cheer Boys!! Novel Inspires Live-Action Film
posted on by Karen Ressler
The original youth novel revolves around the "slightly odd and cute" members of a cheerleading squad at a men's university, and is loosely based on the real-life men's cheerleading team "Shockers." Shueisha published the novel in 2013.
Kenichi Kondō launched a manga adaptation in April 2016, an anime adaptation (pictured right) premiered in July 2016, and a stage play premiered in December 2016. Funimation streamed the anime with English subtitles as it aired in Japan, and later released the series on home video.
