JimiHen—!! Adult Workplace Romance Manga Gets ComicFesta TV Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The ComicFesta Anime brand announced on Wednesday that its newest television anime is based on the JimiHen—!! ~Jimiko o Kaechaū Jun Isei Kōyū~ (Pure Heterosexual Intercourse That Transforms a Plain Girl) manga by Iburō. The anime will premiere on Tokyo MX on January 3.
The story follows the relationship between two co-workers, office worker Rena Yukuhashi and businessman Ryōhei Hachiya. Yukuhashi seems like the plainest woman at her company, but she transforms into a stunning beauty when she dresses up outside the office. Flustered upon seeing Yukuhashi transformed, Hachiya inadvertently utters what sounds like an invitation to get to know each other better — without realizing they are standing in front of a love hotel.
The cast includes:
Mahito Kawamura as Ryōhei Hachiya
Usa Fujisaki as Rie Sekiguchi, a co-worker
Hibiki Nanashino as Buchō (Manager), everyone's boss
(Unlike other ComicFesta Anime, this new anime does not list different cast members for the "on-air" and "premium" editions.)
Rei Ishikura is directing the anime at Studio Hōkiboshi and co-writing the scripts with Eeyo Kurosaki. Kazuya Kuroda designing the characters and is also serving with Kakuto Gai as chief animation directors. Takahiro Enomoto is directing the sound at Studio Mausu.
The "premium edition" of the anime with adult scenes will stream on the ComicFesta Anime website on January 3 at 24:00 (effectively, January 4 at midnight). The "on-air edition" of the anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel on January 3 at 25:00 (January 4 at 1:00 a.m.) A special about the new program will air on December 27 at 25:00 (December 28 at 1:00 a.m.) on Tokyo MX.
Katsura first serialized the manga digitally under the title Jimiko wa Igai ni Ero Katta (The Plain Girl Was Unxpectedly Erotic), and Suiseisha has also been publishing the manga under the title JimiHen—!! ~Jimiko o Kaechaū Jun Isei Kōyū~.
