He’s here to chew bubblegum and clean floors… and he’s all out of bubblegum.
Earlier today, the official Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun (Kappeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun) anime website updated with a new visual and several staff reveals.
The visual features thirteen characters in the series, including the titular Aoyama-kun and his friends. The image was accompanied by new catch copy, which reads “The battle where we absolutely cannot get dirty starts right over there!”
A trio of new staff members was also confirmed. Hiroaki Tsutsumi and Tomotaka Osumi will compose the show’s music, while Hajime Takakuwa (Spice and Wolf, Twin Star Exorcists) serves as sound director.
Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun will hit Japanese TV this summer.
Kazuya Ichikawa (Monster Strike the Animation, Shadow Skill 3 will direct the series at Studio Hibari, with Midori Gotou (Attack on Titan: Junior High, Hozuki’s Coolheadedness) taking charge of series composition. Arisa Matsuura will produce the character designs. Pony Canyon is providing the soundtrack, while TMS Entertainment produces.
Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun is based on Taku Sakamoto’s manga series of the same name. The series kicked off in the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine in 2014. To date, seven volumes have been produced, with the most recent hitting stores on February 17.
Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun is a comedy, which reolves around handsome soccer player Aoyama. Though he’s a skilled player, Aoyama doesn’t tackle, nor does he head the ball – rather. If there’s a throw-in, he’ll only do it while wearing gloves. Aoyama’s a clean player, which can get in the way of his performance on the field. And, as expected, hilarity ensues.
