High schooler Masahiro Setagawa is a fairly helpless delinquent, so much so that the neighborhood bullies use him to run their errands. His life changes when he meets high school teacher Kousuke Oshiba, a man whose fighting abilities have earned him a powerful reputation on the streets. Oshiba finds himself with a desire to protect Setagawa, and despite swearing that he's not interested in men, Setagawa finds himself getting more involved in Oshiba's affairs...

After watching a few episodes of this anime, I have some mixed feelings about this one.

Firstly, when I think shounen ai, I think BL with a proper story and good character development. However, this anime failed to present these factors.

The story starts off with the main character, Masahiro and his past. How he coped with things and how he came to find his first friend. At first, I admit, i found this interesting. And thought it would differ from other foolish anime like Junjou Romantica ( sorry, yaoi fangirls, It's true) though, I thought his character was stupid, I also thought it would undergo development.

The animation does seem lacking and the characters do go off model sometimes, but that seems fairly par for the course. Overall it's nothing special, but it suits the anime just fine.

Sound: 7

I had no idea this was airing until I checked MAL today. I was interested to see how this shounen ai or BL looked like.

If you are going to watch Hitorijime My Hero, I found the first episode a bit confusing in my opinion. However, by episode 2 everything was explained. The first three episodes are mainly about the side characters, normally I'd click away but the relationship did catch my attention.

A small problem with this first couple, it lacks, in my opinion, some depth, a deeper meaning. In my opinion some scenes were very obvious and too predictable. I even started predicting read more
