The manga The Dangers in My Heart (known as Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu in Japanese) is getting an anime adaptation that will debut in April 2023. HIDIVE will offer simultaneous streaming. A teaser trailer just under a minute longer has dropped for the show.
Looking to the announced cast, Shun Horie plays Kyotaro Ichikawa and Hina Yomiya plays Anna Yamada.
The anime is being made at Shinei Animation with Hiroaki Akagi of Those Snow White Notes working as the director. The person in charge of series scripts is Jukki Hanada, who is known for working on Steins;Gate, Love Live! Sunshine!!, and Sound! Euphonium. Credit for character design goes to Masato Katsumata, who has worked in The Quintessential Quintuplets franchise.
The music is scored by kensuke ushio, who has also worked on A Silent Voice, Liz and the Blue Bird, and Chainsaw Man.
Seven Seas Entertainment publishes the original manga in English, and gave this description for its plot:
Ichikawa Kyotaro, a boy barely clinging to the bottom rung of his school’s social ladder, secretly believes he’s the tortured lead in some psychological thriller. He spends his days dreaming up ways to disrupt his classmates’ peaceful lives and pining after Anna Yamada, the class idol. But Kyotaro’s not nearly the troubled teen he pretends to be…and it turns out Anna’s a bit odd herself!
The manga debuted in 2018, originally being published by Weekly Shonen Champion magazine. Because of some business moves it was later published elsewhere. The seventh book volume came out in Japan in late summer, and the fifth volume came out in English through Seven Seas Entertainment on October 4.
