Michiko Yokote (Genshiken, Princess Tutu) is in charge of series composition. Ken Ito is scoring the soundtrack. Kenichi Suzumura will perform ending theme Hide-And-Seek.
Handa-kun began airing on July 7. Funimation describes the series as:
Sei Handa leads a very interesting life for a high school student. He is admired by his peers as a calligraphy genius and held in the highest respect. Unfortunately, Handa is under the impression that they hate him! He just wants a quiet life, but instead he’ll face countless challenges for his school idol position. Can he handle all the pressure and “bullying”? It’s hard being so clueless!
