Tomokazu Seki Narrates Second “Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun” Trailer

I don’t think “cleanup player” means what Aoyama thinks it does…

Earlier today, the official Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun (Keppeki Danshi! Aoyama-kun) anime website updated with a new teaser trailer. The minute-long promo features narration Tomokazu Seki, who explains the show’s quirky concept in-character as Kaoru Zaizen.

Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun will première on Tokyo MX on July 2 at 24:00 (7/3/2017 at midnight). The show will air later on BS11 and Yomiuri TV.

Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun is based on Taku Sakamoto’s manga series of the same name. 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.

The confirmed voice cast includes:

  • Aoyama-kun: Ryotaro Okiayu
  • Kaoru Zaizen: Tomokazu Seki
  • Moka Goto: Anzu Hirano
  • Kazuma Sakai: Soichiro Hoshi
  • Jin Tsukamoto: Daisuke Sakaguchi
  • Taichi Yoshioka: Hiroyuki Yoshino
  • Gaku Ishikawa: Noriaki Sugiyama
  • Hikaru Tada: Daisuke Kishio

The Cleanliness Boy! Aoyama-kun manga 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 revolves 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.

A promotional teaser for the series was unveiled in May. You can check it out below:
