Get Ready for More Play It Cool, Guys Anime in Ending Theme Video

play it cool, guys

We recently posted about the new ending theme for the Play It Cool, Guys anime, which has voice actor unit PICG—consisting of protagonist VAs Chiaki Kobayashi, Kouki Uchiyama, Yuichiro Umehara and Shoya Chiba—singing “Taisetsu” (“Precious”). The original announcement stated that the ending theme video would hit YouTube at the start of the year, and it’s here right on time. 

The song featuring writing, composition and arrangement by Saeki YouthK will have its album launch on February 23. Check out the creditless ending video below. 

Based on the manga by Kokone Nata, the Play It Cool, Guys anime is being directed by Chiaki Kon (Golden Time), with Makoto Uezu (KONOSUBA) on series composition and Eri Taguchi (Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! key animation) on character designs and chief animation direction. 

Crunchyroll started streaming the anime in October and Yen Press publishes the manga. Here’s the official anime synopsis:

At first glance, these guys look cool and handsome.

You want to get closer to them… but then you realize they’re all clumsy!

They forget their wallets, turn on their music on the train without putting their headphones in, put on glasses when they have their contacts in, stab bendy straws backwards into drinks, walk around with a shoehorn that they thought was an umbrella…

Despite being so clumsy, these guys never forget to play it cool. We’ve collected snippets from their daily lives where they do their clumsy best into 15-minute segments, and we’ll be bringing you two cours!

Once you see them in this clumsy comedy that’ll heal your soul with laughter, you’ll probably fall in love with them, too.
