Full-Length Trailer for ‘Play It Cool, Guys’ Reveals October Debut

It’s a fantasy for every clumsy head to look cool while messing up, and ‘Play It Cool, Guys’ features four protagonists living this dream.

This story follows four guys of different ages, backgrounds, and personalities with one thing in common: their clumsiness. By being clumsy, they often find themselves in embarrassing situations, but they all have different ways of dealing with them.

The manga is pretty popular due to its cute and funny themes, but since the anime has been decided, its fame has reached a new high.

To keep us busy until the October 10 debut, the ‘Play It Cool, Guys’ franchise has released a full-length trailer for its anime. The trailer also previews the anime’s opening theme song, ‘Seishun Kippu’ (Youth Ticket) by Mafumafu.

The video shows different instances of the guys being a klutz and dealing with the situation in their own way. For example, Ichikura Hayate tends to overthink and get embarrassed easily, whereas Futami Shun is the kind to act tough when he messes up.

The eldest of the group, office worker Mima Takayuki is the unaware and unaffected type who doesn’t even notice his clumsiness. Last but not least, Shiki Souma is the optimistic one who laughs it off and sometimes can’t control his habit of giggling whenever a blunder happens.

Additionally, the franchise has also revealed a new key visual featuring the four protagonists being big clumsy heads.

The broadcast starts on October 10 (Monday)!  

The TV anime “#Cool Doji Danshi” will be broadcast on TV Tokyo, AT-X, and BS11 from October 10, 2022 (Monday)!

A key visual has been released showing cool bumbling boys blundering in such a way that you can sympathize with them.
