Kuma Holdings describes the anime:
Tamari Ayumu suffers from Crystallization Syndrome, a crippling illness which causes his body to start turning to crystals whenever he becomes anxious or depressed. He chases after the romantic affections of his teacher, Onihara Koya, who spurns him at every turn, unwilling to accept love from a student. This is a story from auteur anime director Soubi Yamamoto about anxiety, depression, and love.
This Boy Suffers from Crystallization and This Boy is a Professional Wizard are the fourth and fifth project, respectively, in Yamamoto's Kono Danshi/This Boy series. Crunchyroll streamed both anime. Sentai Filmworks licensed and released both This Boy Caught a Merman and This Boy Can Fight Aliens! in North America.
As a 21-year-old, Yamamoto made her scriptwriting and directorial debut in 2011 with the first 28-minute Kono Danshi anime, Kono Danshi, Uchū-jin to Tatakaemasu. (This Boy Can Fight Aliens!). Her followup, Kono Danshi, Ningyo Hiroimashita. (This Boy Caught a Merman), was released in 2012. The third installment titled Kono Danshi, Akunin to Yobaremasu. (This Boy Is Called A Scoundrel) was released as a drama CD in 2013.
