Cheer Boys!! (Japanese: チア男子!!, Hepburn: Chia Danshi!!) is a Japanese novel written by Ryō Asai, first published on October 5, 2010, by Shueisha. It follows the members of a university's all-male cheerleading squad. The novel is loosely based on the real-life men's cheerleading team \"Shockers\" from Waseda University. The series was also adapted as a manga by Kenichi Kondō for the Shōnen Jump+ app starting on April 5, 2016. An anime adaptation started airing on July 5, 2016. It is directed by Ai Yoshimura and written by Reiko Yoshida for the studio Brain's Base. A live action film directed by Hiroki Kazama is slated to open in early 2019.
Disheartened with judo, college student Haruki \"Haru\" Bando was invited by his childhood boyfriend Kazuma Hashimoto to create \"BREAKERS\", an unprecedented boys' cheerleading team. Those that came to join all were very characteristic in nature: argumentative Mizoguchi, voracious Ton, frivolous Kansai boys Gen and Ichiro, and Sho, who has cheerleading experience.
While I have you here, I would also like to low-key point out that the Male Dance Team at my high school (which was amazing and won all sorts of state competitions, by the way) had all of the girls swooning with their awesome performance in an area of athletics traditionally practiced by women, so I can totally back up the realism of girls thinking that cheer boys (especially those first tumblers, Gen and Suzu as they impress the tennis court ladies) would be swoonworthy. It is highly realistic.
From action-packed basketball matches to an obscure traditional card game found only in Japan, we have compiled an exhaustive list of sports anime for you to get started on. Haikyuu!! may have ended its manga run, but other sweat-drenched characters await your cheering. 59ce067264
