On August 16, 2022, the official Twitter account for The Dangers in My Heart unveiled the colored version of a teaser visual for the upcoming anime adaptation of Norio Sakurai’s rom-com, slice-of-life, shonen manga The Dangers in My Heart (Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu). The Dangers in My Heart anime release date is now confirmed for 2023!
On August 1, 2022, the first teaser visual was released, which can be seen here:
The second colored visual, which features Anna Yamada about to eat an ice-cream cone in a teasing manner, can be seen here:
The Twitter account also teases that there are going to be even more changes to the visual, which means it’s highly likely a blushing Kyotaro Ichikawa will be added to the scene. Or maybe an angry Kyotaro Ichikawa since it appears that Anna Yamada is holding his ice-cream cone.
What is the plot of The Dangers in My Heart?
The story centers on an unpopular, gloomy high school boy named Kyotaro Ichikawa, who is unhappy with his lonely school life and has a very dark outlook. He spends most of the time reading bloody horror stories by himself. These violent stories inspire him to start fantasizing about murdering his popular classmates that to his eyes appear to be overly happy. This angers him because he feels so miserable about everything and he wishes he could bring them down a peg or two.
Kyotaro’s prime target is the most popular, outgoing, and beautiful girl in his class – Anna Yamada. Unfortunately, the bane of his existence, Anna, ends up paying way too much attention to him, following him to the library, interrupting his precious reading time, and even going so far as to steal his snacks.
Kyotaro becomes obsessed with “killing” her and when he finds out she’s a model goes out and immediately buys her magazine. He begins to follow her around and saves her from dangerous situations. As they become closer he comes to realize that his feelings have unexpectedly changed from hate to love. Unfortunately, Kyotaro has no idea what he should do once he realizes he likes the girl he used to hate.
