Cross-Dressing TV Anime "Himegoto" Set for July 7

Veteran Takeyuki Yanase makes his series director debut

It is confirmed today that the upcoming TV anime adaptation of Norio Tsukudani's cross dressing-themed comedy manga Himegoto will premiere on satellite broadcasting station BS11 on July 7, then streamed on Nico Nico Douga on the following day. The official site for the anime also announced five additional voice cast in addition to the previously announced main four. 


The manga first published in Ichijinsha's Otokonoko (men who cross-dress as women)-themed magazine Waai! from 2011 to early 2014. After the magazine stopped its publication, it has been serialized in the publisher's Monthly Comic REX. Currently two tankobon volumes are available in Japan. The story centers on a second grade high school student boy Hime Arikawa.
