I don't believe this. One of the best BL series out there is getting an anime! When the BL industry often refuse to anime good works!

The studio is A-1 Pictures. The director though, seems to be an animator new to the director role.

I wonder how many volumes this will cover? I'd love to see it cover all the way to O.B., but that is most likely impossible.
Most likely covering up to the graduation, if this is a 12 episode run.

Even though I don't watch yaoi stories this one certainly seems different. More heartwarming and less fan service then the other ones. At least judging from the very short PV. Another interesting thing to note is some of the staff such as the director, character designer and art director all have worked with Ikuhara. Such as Chieko Nakamura the art director of this is also the art director for Yuri Kuma Arashi (interesting that she works on Yuri bears to boy love). So at least all of have got very good resume. Another interesting thing the music is done by Kotaro Oshio who hasn't done any work in anime before and is an acoustic guitarist. Judging by the PV, the music will mostly be just that. It be very unique and makes sense of the atomphsephe. So even though I've never been interested in this sort of thing given the staff and PV I'm looking forward to it. Not sure which season it will be on but I'm guessing either Summer or Fall this year.

It is a pretty to the point romance story that does just that
The manga has five volumes, going from the start of their relationship, to their high school graduation year, and then their post graduation life.

I don't watch much actual BL anime besides Love Stage!! but I can't say I dislike them either, it would however be nice if this anime will go well as expected (as in realistic BL romance between two guys without teenage angst overdose).

And nicer art. Much nicer art.

I haven't read the manga that this show is based on, but my feelings for every BL anime I've came across so far ranged from "meh" to "gah, no no no". This one already feels like a welcome change of pace...

So according to this it's going to be a film set for Spring 2016. If they're only doing DouKyuSei which has one volume then that makes sense.

Based on the CR information, I'm moving the thread to the Movies forum.

Kamiyan sounds better here then I thought he might, but I think I still would have preferred someone with Nishio Daisuke's type of tone. The animation looks great though. Also sensei!

I am pretty satisfied with Kamiyan's tone here, actually.
It is very rare now a days that you find Kamiyan doing a role that actually fits his acting.
But then, he got that role long time ago. You know, before the days people just cast him everywhere just because.

For those who live in the States you're in luck. Aniplex of America will be screening this movie in select theaters. Here's a link to a list of screenings so far. http://doukyuseimovie.com/theaters/

Rats! There's a showing in Virginia, but it's too far away to go for a movie.
