A new anime adaptation is in the works for TV with the manga series Dance Dance Danseur getting the nod. The announcement came through Shogakukan back in April 2021 and it’s teased out information since then. With the show set for an April 8th, 2022 premiere, Crunchyroll is bringing it out for the season and has now brought out one of the Japanese promos but with English subtitles to make it more accessible for viewers to check out.
The series has Munehisa Sakai as the director working from the series composition by Yoshimi Narita. Hitomi Hasegawa is on board for the character designs with MAPPA handling the animation production.
The Japanese cast includes:
- Daiki Yamashita plays protagonist Junpei Murao
- Kouki Uchiyama as Ruo Mori
- Kaede Hondo as Miyako Godai
The show has set YUKI to perform the opening theme song “Narihibiku Kagiri” while Hitorie will perform the ending theme song “Kaze, Hana.”
The manga from George Asakura began in 2015 in Weekly Big Comic Spirits. It’ll have twenty volumes out this month as of its announcement. Asakura has had a few properties released in English previously with A Perfect Day for Love Letters and Drowning Love.
Plot Concept: The story focuses on Junpei Murao, who was fascinated with ballet as a child, but in his second year of middle school, his father passed away and he decided he needed to become more “masculine,” and he gave up on his aspirations. While still having an attachment to ballet, he takes up the martial art of Jeet Kune Do, and becomes popular in his class. Then one day, a new transfer student named Miyako Godai arrives in Junpei’s class, and her mother runs a ballet studio. Miyako realizes that Junpei is interested in ballet, and invites him to do ballet together.
