  • Together with Nihon Television, Yasushi Akimoto has annnounced that they are making an original anime called "Kimi Dake ni Motetainda"(I Only Want to Be Attracive to You). This summer, there will be a television show broadcast to show off the auditions for all of the male seiyuu roles and other roles on the series.
