The official website of the animated television adaptation of the manga Dakaretai Otoko 1-ni Odosarete Imasu of Hashigo Sakurabi has revealed what will be its main team, an addition to the cast and that the series will premiere next October at Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV and BS11.

Naoyuki Tatsuwa (Nisekoi) will direct the series under CloverWorks, while Yoshimi Narita (Saint Seiya Omega) will be in charge of the scripts. Minako Shiba (Noir, .hack // SIGN) will design the characters and will be the chief animation director with Senri Kawaguchi and Yu Kurihara.

Yuusuke Noma and Yuto Karasawa will be in charge of directing the CG, while Masaru Yokoyama will compose the music and Satoshi Motoyama will be the sound director.

The new voice added to the cast will be Wataru Hatano as Kiyotaka Arisu, a character of very recent appearance in the original manga.

The previously announced cast is the same as that of the CD drama that the franchise already had:

Yuuki Ono as Junta Azuyama
Hiroki Takahashi as Takato Saijyo
Takuya Sato as Chihiro Ayagi
Yuma Uchida as Ryo Narumiya
Kousuke Toriumi as Kazuomi Usaka

Takato Saijyo is the story of the manga, who reigns in the idol industry as the "most adorable" for five years, at least until the appearance of the new actor Azuyama Board to dispute that position. Takato has always been an abrupt person, while Azumaya is a sweet person who smiles at his admirers. The loss of public sympathy causes Takuto to drown his sorrows in alcohol, something that will attract the attention of the person who is least interested in him. What Takuto did not expect was for Azumaya to use this information to blackmail him and force him to give him physical affection.

Sakurabi released the manga in the magazine Be x Boy of Libre Shuppan in July 2013, having dated the release of its fifth compilation volume for March 30. To date, the work has more than two million printed copies.
