The April 2016 issue of Bessatsu Friend magazine, which will go on sale on March 12, has announced a TV anime adaptation of the romance comedy manga Watashi ga Motete Dousunda.

The series drawn by Junko has been publishing since 2013 and currently has seven volumes in print. It placed fourth in the 2015 rankings of Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga is Amazing!) among female readers. The series has also been published by Kodansha Comics USA since October under the English title Kiss Him, Not Me, which was selected through a reader contest held on Crunchyroll.

Synopsis
Kae Serinuma is a second year high schooler and an avid fujoshi who secretly ships her classmates, Igarashi-kun and Nanashima-kun. The death of her favorite anime character causes her to become stressed—and loses weight rapidly. Now that Serinuma has become an attractive girl to her classmates, her snarky kouhai Shinomiya-kun, and her senpai Mutsumi, how is she going to deal with them ...with her constant BL-filled, fujoshi mind?!

Really excited for this! Manga is super funny and self aware. Also, tons of references to modern Anime (Diamond no Ace, Attack on Titan for example). Looking forward~

Hope drama CD cast stays.

HanaKana, Hosoyan, Sakupyon, Kamiyan, Tattsun for cast please. That's the Drama CD cast and it sounded perfect. And I'm happy that Rinne's designer will do the job.

I've been reading this. Kinda funny in some ways but also dull at times. I expect the cast to be the same as drama, or at least hopefully.

...for some reason, I thought this already got an adaption. or something similar.
The death of her favorite anime character causes her to become stressed—and loses weight rapidly. Now that Serinuma has became an attractive girl to her classmates[...]

I remember specifically thinking that this premise was gross.
could have just been the manga synopsis that I saw...
I hope that's not a big theme, and it's actually something funny/worth watching.

Well, it's okay I think. Funny enough.

Anyway, not sure if it's just a coincidence, but lately many manga licensed by Crunchyroll are getting an adaptation... Orange, Amaama to Inazuma, Fukigen na Mononokean, now this... Mmm.

Can't wait to see tumblr crumble as they enter a self-conflict watching this.

ah yes, I remember this! I remember being intrigued by the seiyuu and my recognition of the art style, then instantly repelled by the synopsis.
I hope that more than anything, this makes fun of fujoshi/BL tropes, rather than BL in general.
fujoshi/fan shipping culture can get pretty gross/repelling so I'd like to see something that takes that concept and makes something interesting/funny out of it.

@Bird The manga's really a parody so it presents the whole suddenly getting skinny thing as, y'know: here's some only-in-manga logic, let's push it as darn far as we can, and laugh at it.

There are some characters I like and funny arcs, but I dunno if I'll watch the anime.

They never said it was anorexia (an eating disorder characterized by a low weight, fear of gaining weight, a strong desire to be thin, and food restriction).

Fab news, only just started reading it and it's a lot of fun. Reminds me there's another volume out to get.

The weight loss things is funny because of it's utter ridiculousness. Disappointed but not surprised to see people take it seriously.

Oh that's pretty cool. I had read a few chapters and forgot about it a few years ago. Wasn't bad or anything.

Guess I'll just wait for anime then.

Waiting to see how @phoenixalia will react to this announcement.
The art for the anime looks great looking at that tweet again.
Perfect manga CM with drama CD voices to sum synopsis.

I follow Betsufure's website just for WatashiMote so since it was teasing a really big announcement I thought it's either an anime or a live action though if it had been the latter I would have broken a table lol.

I'm the proud owner of both the Drama CDs. They're wonderful.

I've started my classes again plus it's summer so I go for swimming every day now so I just got home dead tired but screamed 'YESSSS!' when I saw it. The anime art looks great!

We shouldn't try to find logic on a fictional character losing her weight so quickly over a fictional character within the fiction. It's like trying to find logic on the time-travel in Boku Dake.

I am not into reverse harem but have been following this for a while and it can be really funny at times. If you shut your brain functions, Serinuma's fantasy triggers are pretty enjoyable even for those who aren't into fujoshi stuff like me.

However, I think not all the characters are likable. At least it was in my case as I read the manga. I only ever liked Serinuma with Matsumiya-senpai and Igarashi. It's hard to choose between the two but up to the point I read, I have been more inclined towards Senpai's chances with her because he is the only one who treated her with kindness and affection even before she lost her weight.

If we take that away from Senpai, Igarashi is the auto pick because he is just too nice to be overlooked. I don't like labeling him as a 'nice guy' because nice guys almost always end up not getting their girl in shoujo manga but that's just what Igarashi is.

not a big fan of reverse harem genre though it doesnt look like it will probably be focusing more on the comedy side than the romance, going to check this out.

Wow!

I never thought this would get an anime. I read it quite some time ago. It's really hilarious ;D

Finally an anime about a fujoshi for fujoshis.

It's a glorious time to be alive as a fujoshi.

This seems awesome!! As a fellow fujoshi, I can see myself loving this.
Now to wait for the voice cast. I'm hoping they pick a strong cast, then this Anime can have my heart.

I'm not entirely sure what to expect, since not only am I not a fujoshi, but I can't stand fujoshis. But it looks amusing, so I may check it out! Or at least read some of the manga to see if it's good.

No, it's just a Shoujo manga that Fujoshis also like because the author specializes in BL manga. She's more of a fangirl imo

Yeah, there's barely any romance, just like Ouran.
