Comedy manga about male BL fan green-lit for anime series

The comedy manga starring high-school boy and BL fan Sakaguchi, Fudanshi Koko Seikatsu (Rotten Boys’ High School Life) by Atami Michinoku, has been green-lit for an anime adaptation premiering this July. The series follows Sakaguchi’s life as a “fudanshi”, a play on the term fujoshi, or “rotten girls”, for women who love boys-love or yaoi, and his school days with his “normal”, fujoshi and gay friends.

The cast and their characters have been announced as follows:

Wataru Hatano as Sakaguchi
Kenji Nojima as Nakamura, “Sakaguchi’s (normal) friend”
Aya Suzaki as Rumi Nishihara, a fujoshi
Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Yujiro Shiratori, Sakaguchi’s gay friend
Toshiki Masuda as Akira Ueda, Shiratori’s servant who has a crush on his boss and will do anything for him
Kotaro Nishiyama as Daigo, Sakaguchi’s schoolmate and fellow fudanshi

Toshikatsu Tokoro of Soul Link is directing at Kumamiko‘s studio EMT Squared, and Chika Ishida, who’s worked on key animation for JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure and tsuritama, designs the characters. And while Nobuyuki Abe directs the sound at Dax Production, Dream Creation of I Can’t Understand What My Husband is Saying is on production.

The manga first launched on digital publisher Ichijinsha’s website Zero Sum Online on May 1st last year. It’s been compiled into two volumes so far, and this second volume (pictured above, right) is set to publish on April 25th.
