Sasaki and Miyano Anime Reveals Cast, Staff, 2022 TV Premiere (Updated)
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The cast are all reprising their roles from the manga's previous drama CDs, and includes:
- Yusuke Shirai as Shūmei Sasaki
- Sōma Saitō as Yoshikazu Miyano
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Taiga Hirano
- Yūki Ono as Jirō Ogasawara
- Yūma Uchida as Masato Hanzawa
- Ryohei Arai as Tasuku Kuresawa
- Mitsuhiro Ichiki as Gonsaburō Tashiro
Shinji Ishihira (Fairy Tail, Log Horizon, Talentless Nana) is directing the anime at Studio DEEN. Takahiro Ueno is the assistant director. Yoshiko Nakamura (Super Lovers, Shōnen Maid, Tada Never Falls in Love) is in charge of series composition. Maki Fujii (I've Always Liked You, The Moment You Fall in Love, Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart.) is designing the characters.
It all started like a typical old-school boys' love plotline—bad-boy senior meets adorably awkward underclassman, one of them falls in love, and so on and so forth. But although Miyano is a self-proclaimed boys' love expert, he hasn't quite realized…he's in one himself. Which means it's up to Sasaki to make sure their story has a happily ever after…!
Harusono launched the manga on the pixiv website in 2016. Kadokawa published the manga's seventh volume in November 2020. It has inspired a novel by Kotoko Hachijō. The original manga spawned the Hirano to Kagiura spinoff manga about two side characters that runs in Monthly Comic Gene. That spinoff manga has in turn inspired its own novel.
Update: Updated story introduction by Yen Press added. Thanks, MCAL and fencer_x.
Update 2: The publishers categorize the manga as "BL," and note that the BL stands for "Boys Life" (everyday life of high school boys). Harusono added in a Tweet that the term invokes a combination of BL (in the usual definition of "Boys Love") and nichijō ("daily life" or "slice of life"). Thanks, fencer_x and musouka.
