Bishounen Fantasy UraBoku Goes Anime

BL artist's manga gets an anime adaptation and a strong cast.


Word on Natalie.mu is that the manga Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru (translates to Betrayal Knows My Name, often shortened to UraBoku) is getting an anime adaptation.

The manga, by Hotaru Odagiri (best known in the US for various BL, including art for Only the Ring Finger Knows and Time Lag), revolves around an orphaned boy named Yuki Sakurai who has the ability to feel other people's emotions whenever he touches them. Unfortunately he can't control his powers, which increase at a terrifying rate...until a man who claims to be Yuki's older brother appears.

Some cast announcements have already been made: Souichiro Hoshi ( Gundam SEED's Kira Yamato) will play Sakurai, and Marina Inoue ( Gurren Lagann's Yoko, Skip Beat's Kyoko), Jun Fukuyama ( Code Geass's Lelouch), and Daisuke Ono ( The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya's Itsuki Koizumi) are also reportedly on the list.

Sounds like it has some possibility-- the premise isn't unlike Night Head Genesis, but hopefully it'll turn out better than that. Anyone else interested?
