2 min read

The spring 2017 anime series Love Tyrant, also known as Renai Bokun, has found itself as another title part of the transition period between Funimation and Crunchyroll where the dub is now available on Crunchyroll’s site. It joins the subtitled version that was simulcast there previously which now gives fans a chance to check out both options and decide which one that they like best.

Jerry Jewell is directing it based on the scripts by Monica Rial. The English main cast includes Jad Saxton as Guri, Austin Tindle as Seiji, Amber Lee Connors as Akane, Monica Rial as Yuzu,  and Sonny Strait as Coraly.

Atsushi Nigorikawa directed it based on the series composition by Natsuko Takahashi. Mariko Itou served as the character designers with EMT2 handled the animation production.

The Japanese cast includes Yoshino Aoyama as Gris, Kensho Ono as Seiji Aino, Manami Numakura as Akane Hiyama, Yuki Nagano as Yuzu Kichougasaki, Yumi Hara as Shikimi Shiramine, Nobuyuki Hiyama as Korari, Houchuu Ootsuka as Kami-sama, Takehito Koyasu as Maou, Kenyuu Horiuchi as Stolas, Yasuaki Takumi as Tarou Tsuruoka and Rie Takahashi as Akua Aino.

The property loosely translates as The very lovely tyrant of love and there are twelve volumes out total as of the end of December 2016 in Japan. The property has been serialized on the Comic Meteor website.

The opening song is “Koi? de Ai? de Boukun desu!” by Wake Up, Girls! while the ending theme song is “‘Suki’ wo Oshiete” by smileY inc.

The series is the third published work from Mihoshi who previously did some work in the Zombie Anthology Comic release and Koiyami: Hayarigami Another Story. Renai Bokun began back in the early summer 2012.

Plot concept: A Kiss Note is a powerful notebook that makes anyone who has their name written together will instantly fall in love if they kiss each other regardless of any circumstances. This magical and very familiar item belongs to an angel named Guri whose job as cupid is to create couples. However, she accidentally writes down Aino Seiji, a regular high school student, and unless he kisses someone, Guri will die. She convinces Seiji to go kiss his crush, Hiyama Akane, the school’s popular girl who turns out has even stronger feelings for him, bordering on obsessive and psychotic. Eventually, Akane and Seiji come together but not before Guri decides that she likes Seiji as well. What seems awesome to most guys becomes hell for Seiji who just wants a normal relationship with girls.
