The Dangers in My Heart Manga and Anime

Norio Sakurai's manga, The Dangers in My Heart, made its debut in Weekly Shonen Champion magazine in March 2018. It later migrated to Champion Cross before finding its permanent home at Manga Cross. The story revolves around Kyotaro Ichikawa, an unpopular high school student who harbors a distorted perception of reality, believing himself to be the tormented protagonist of a psychological thriller. With animosity towards his classmates, he frequently devises ways to torment them. However, he also nurtures a secret crush on Anna Yamada, one of the most popular girls in school. As their relationship develops, Kyotaro discovers that Anna herself has a peculiar side to her character.

Shin-Ei Animation, known for Crayon Shin-Chan and Doraemon, adapted Sakurai's popular manga into an animated series that premiered in April 2023. The series was directed by Hiroaki Akagi (Teasing Master Takagi-san) and written by Jukki Hanada (Bloom Into You, Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!). Kensuke Ushio (A Silent Voice, Chainsaw Man) composed the captivating music for the series. Hina Yomiya co-starred alongside Shun Horie as Anna Yamada. Prior to The Dangers In My Heart, Horie lent his voice to various prominent characters in popular anime series such as Kazuya Kinoshita from Rent-A-Girlfriend, Tomoki Kakegawa from 2.43: Seiin High School Boys Volleyball Team, Sariel from The Seven Deadly Sins, and Amethio from Pokemon Horizons.

The first season of The Dangers In My Heart is available for streaming on HIDIVE, while the manga can be enjoyed in English through Seven Seas Entertainment.
