Synopsis

Masahiro Setagawa is a hopeless teenager who is often used by the neighborhood bullies as an errand boy. Defenseless, Masahiro knows that nobody will ever save him. However, his life drastically changes when he meets Kousuke Ooshiba, a man known as the "Bear Killer," who takes down neighborhood gangs.

A year later, Masahiro and his former friend, Kensuke Ooshiba, attend high school, only to find that Kousuke is their math teacher. While the three grow closer, Masahiro starts to view Kousuke as his "hero," and Kousuke develops an urging desire to protect Masahiro. However, their normal lives take a turn when Kensuke's childhood friend, Asaya Hasekura, returns, seeing Kensuke as more than just a friend, much to his surprise. Will the three boys be able to live a regular high school life? Or will forbidden love keep them apart forever?

“It might have looked that way to you, but I’m just normal ”
~ Setagawa, ep 4.

And that’s practically ever BL protagonist ever, isn’t it?

Anyway, if you aren’t interested in reading my entire review (because who enjoys reading long reviews, huh?), here’s a TL;DR version of it:
If you’re a fujoshi or someone who's tired of the same tropes being used in BL (abusive seme, weak MC, cliché romance), then Hitorijime is something you’ll enjoy. But if you’re looking for something new, refreshing or path breaking in the BL genre, look somewhere else.

The shounen-ai genre has been pretty lacking over the past few years, so whenever a new one comes out I always take a bit of time to check them out.
Hitorijime My Hero (AKA My Very Own Hero) may not reinvent the genre, but it's respectful, consistent, and uplifting.

Other recent releases in the genre such as Super Lovers, Love Stage, and sort of Yuri On Ice have shown it's possible to make a decent shounen-ai anime, but in all three of those shows sacrifice something to get to the worthwhile moments. Super Lovers, although enjoyable and adorable, the age gap and family aspect can read more

Hitorijime My Hero is a decent BL story with likeable characters and fairly healthy relationships compared to the majority of the genre. It’s pacing, though, could use some work. And by some work, I mean A LOT of work.

Lucky for Hitorijime My Hero, all four main characters are engaging and play off each other well. It’s also nice to see our two couples not only interact with their love interest, but with other people - which is rarer in BL than I’d wish.

There’s also more at stake than just “will they get together,” especially with Masahiro Setagawa. It’s easy to get sucked into read more

Hitorijime My Herooooo! I was very excited to have another shounen ai be adapted, and I was not that disappointed.

Story- basic concept that can be guessed from a teacher/student relationship. Common concerns and drama are present. If you're tired of the cliches, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this. However for those you enjoy fluffy cliches in this genre, oh boy you'll love this.

Art- It's a bit lackluster. No explosions of color or movement. It's relaxing.

Sound- romantic vibes all around. Gets repetitive in using the same fluff song. But the overall soundtrack is good.

Characters- Is there huge character development? Ehhhh not really besides some reconciling. read more
