Manga creator Kokone Nata revealed on Twitter on Friday that the tv anime adaptation of their Play It Cool, Guys (Cool Doji Danshi) manga will air for two cours (quarter of a 12 months) with every episode being quarter-hour lengthy.

The anime premiere in October, and can star:

  • Chiaki Kobayashi as Hayate Ichihara
  • Kouki Uchiyama as Shun Futami
  • Yuichiro Umehara as Takayuki Mima
  • Shōya Chiba as Sōma Shiki

Chiaki Kon (Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal, The Way of the Househusband, Junjō Romantica) is directing the anime at Studio Pierrot. Makoto Uezu (Assassination Classroom, Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Space Brothers) is overseeing the sequence scripts, and Airi Taguchi (key animation for Children of the Sea, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? second season) is serving as each character designer and chief animation director. Masato Nakayama (B-PROJECT, We Never Learn: BOKUBEN, You and Me.) is composing the music.

Yen Press is releasing the manga in English, and it describes the story:

Enter: a bunch of cool guys who appear to be they bought that unapproachable swag. But let’s be actual—that is not the true them. They’re only a bunch of dorks who’ve bought the act down pat. So sit again, seize some popcorn and luxuriate in watching a bunch of goofy guys attempt to look cool all day each day. Play It Cool, Guys is a enjoyable assortment of tales that includes guys which might be equal components cool and equal components adorably awkward.

Yen Press is publishing the manga in full colour, because it was initially launched in Japan. Nata launched the manga in June 2019 on the Gangan pixiv web site, the place it’s ongoing.
