The winter 2018 anime series Sanrio Boys is getting a fairly standard home video release plan as announced. While we’ve got about a month until the first volume hits, Pony Canyon has brought out the cover artwork for it that sets the tone for the run. The twelve episode series is getting a six-volume release that begins on March 21st, 2018. The DVDs are priced at 5,800 yen whilt he Blu-ray’s are priced at 6,800 yen. The releases are coming with event ticket priority applications throughout that will be a draw for many fans.

Masashi Kudou directed it based on the composition by Takashi Aoshima. Atsuko Nakajima worked on the character designs while the animation was produced by Studio Pierrot and Pierrot Plus.

The Japanese cast includes Takuya Eguchi as Kōta Hasegawa, Sōma Saitō as Yū Mizuno, Jun Oosuka as Shunsuke Yoshino, Hiroyuki Kagura as Ryō Nishimiya, Yūma Uchida as Seiichiro Minamoto, Daisuke Kishio as Yamato Machida, Chihiro Suzuki as Tadashi Tsuchiya, and Makoto Furukawa as Satoshi Matsuo.

Plot Concept: The property follows Kōta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yū Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yū tells Kōta that there’s nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio’s cute characters. Together, Kōta, Yū, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryō Nishimiya, and Seiichiro Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.
