Ascendent Animation is proud to announce their latest acquisition, “I Want to Be His Prey!” Alongside this acquisition, we are also proud to announce the production of an English dub of the series, and a Blu-Ray Release.
I Want to Be His Prey is being dubbed in partnership with the Japanese company, WWWave Corporation. The show is based off of a Japanese manga written and illustrated by the artist, Musubi Onigiri, the winner of the Anime Festa Comic Grand Prix. The Coolmic website published the manga in English digitally.
Tatsumi Akazu, a hard-working gym teacher, always does his best for his students. Hinako Okami is a reserved student with a massive unrequited crush. When a skirt thief decides that Hinako is a worthy target, disaster looms!
Tatsumi chases the predator off and escorts Hinako home... only to discover that she's NOT the shy violet she pretends to be! Tatsumi now faces a moral dilemma - does he keep his distance, or follow temptation across a forbidden line? How long will his resolve last in the face of such a determined cutie!?
The show follows an adult romantic storyline, featuring comedic moments, relationship woes, a skirt thief, and passionate stories. Each episode runs about 7 minutes long.Sean Tay (Caressing My Hibernating Bear, The Titan’s Bride, Fire in His Fingertips) will be directing the English version.
