The official Twitter account for the original television anime Aru Asa Dummy Head Mike ni Natteita Ore-kun no Jinsei (My Life After I Became a Dummy Head Microphone One Morning) announced on Monday that Tomokazu Sugita will play Ore-kun, who was reincarnated into a dummy head microphone. He will later get reincarnated into a bicycle saddle, fried chicken, a dog, a ruler, and more.
The cast includes:
The anime will premiere on the Tokyo MX channel and stream this October.
The slapstick comedy revolves around a protagonist who was reincarnated into a dummy head microphone (a microphone embedded in a fake human head to faithfully record the aural ambience). That dummy head microphone happens to be used by Yuri and other high school girls in an ASMR club, who have their sights set on the "ASMR Kōshien" high school championships. (ASMR or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is the nerve-tingling or relaxing sensation one gets in response to stimuli such as certain sounds or sights.)
Director Yoshinobu Kasai (Demon Lord, Retry! episode director) is reuniting with the studios INDIVISION and EKACHI EPILKA after working together on another ASMR-themed anime, 180-Byō de Kimi no Mimi o Shiawase ni Dekiru ka? Midori Otsuka (Kamen no Maid Guy's additional designs) is adapting the original character designs by cura (Private Tutor to the Duke's Daughter) for animation.
The anime was originally announced as Yuri no Aida ni Hasamareru. Aru Asa Dummy Head Mike ni Natteita Ore-kun no Jinsei (Caught Between a Yuri Relationship. My Life After I Became a Dummy Head Microphone One Morning) before staff shortened the title.
