Honey’s Highlights

What's this? An actual BL anime?! This is the best news since the Super Lovers anime!

It's kind of got the same forbidden love theme too, as one of the couples is a teacher and student. Another couple are childhood friends.

This looks like it's going to be super cute but also a little sad. Since it's set in high school, it kind of reminds me of Doukyuusei.

It looks as though the anime will be shounen-ai though, so we probably won't see any of the yaoi scenes like in Junjou Romantica.

Synopsis

“Ever since I lost it, I wanted it. More than anything, I wanted a place to belong and a bond. I hated heroes. Because they never appear before me.”

That is when bad delinquent Masahiro meets Kousuke whose alias is “bear killer”. Masahiro longed for a place to belong where he could cry. Kousuke wanted to open his gentle arms widely rather than have power. Warmth that knows radiant emotion.

He broke the promise that they were going to be together forever, and that is why Kensuke broke it off with Asaya. But, Asaya could not forget about Kensuke. Asaya wants to see Kensuke’s smile one more time.

Their hearts that miss each other, become a bond.

Three Episode Impression

Hitorijime My Hero is an anime that many has compared to Super Lovers. With its slow paced romance and rather subtle hints, a love story has been gradually unfolding within each episode of Hitorijime My Hero until it’s glaringly obvious and even if you aren’t a fujoshi, you know you are rooting for Asaya and yelling at Kensuke to get a clue. And the way Settie idolizes Kousuke...Just figure it out already! As each episode passes, you are drawn into their romance. Is friendship really ever enough? Don’t you want to get closer to him? Just do it! Episode 3 was already met with a climax as Asaya pushes Kensuke towards the edge and you can hear yourself screaming for more. Regardless of your fujoshi status, Hitorijime My Hero is a great shounen ai anime that really reels you in by your love of romance anime.
