It follows the four supposedly cool guys who, in reality, are the clumsiest people you will ever see. Hayate, Shun, Takayuki, and Souma are tied by the fate of the klutz and eventually form close bonds based on mutual experiences.

Although all of them are the same level of clumsy, they do have varying personalities.

The latest promo video for the ‘Play It Cool, Guys’ anime focuses on Souma, who takes his blunders positively (way too positively, if you ask me).

Unlike Hayate, who overthinks all of his mistakes, Souma is the kind who accepts them and laughs them off. Like that, Souma’s habit has gotten to a point where he can’t help but giggle or grin over all his slip-ups.

Souma’s clumsiness goes from wearing mismatched socks to forgetting his camera at a random park bench. If that wasn’t enough, this guy once packed a lunch full of side dishes for his brothers and accidentally took the one with the rice for himself.

Moreover, the official website has also revealed a key visual of Souma wearing different colored socks without realizing it.
