Today we would like to share with you some news about the success of “The Dangers in My Heart” outside of Japan. So check it out, TV Asahi, one of the biggest TV networks in Japan, recently released some amazing statistics that don’t quite fit with the trends we thought we knew. Let’s dive in!

In a section called “Anime and Gaming Business” TV Asahi revealed that the anime adaptation of “Boku no Kokoro no Yabai Yatsu” (or “The Dangers in My Heart”) has shattered the record for overseas revenue as part of the NUMAnimation programming block. Pretty impressive, right? This series is produced by TV Asahi and animated by Shin-Ei Animation. They’ve really hit the jackpot!

The Hidden Gem: Uncovering the Mystery Behind

Now, let’s compare this achievement with other productions. TV Asahi has recently been involved in the production of series like “Blue Lock” “Kakkou no Iinazuke” “Delicious Party Precure” “Ryman’s Club” “Kaijin Kaihatsu-bu no Kuroitsu-san” “World Trigger” “Battle Athletess Daiundoukai ReSTART!” “Yesterday wo Utatte” and many more.

Do you notice something interesting about these series? Well, here’s the surprise twist: Crunchyroll has licensed all of them for international distribution, except for “The Dangers in My Heart” which is licensed by HIDIVE. What’s the deal with that?

Does this mean that Crunchyroll isn’t paying as much for licenses as its competitors? Or did the series featuring Anna Yamada have some secret ingredient that made it more successful than its predecessors? We may never know for sure, as Japanese companies tend to keep their business information under lock and key.

But wait, here’s the contradictory part. Despite its international success, “The Dangers in My Heart” hasn’t been making waves on social media or capturing the attention of viewers during its airing. It’s like a hidden gem! This intriguing tidbit about the series’ triumph overseas has sparked some lively discussions in the online forums.

Some comments include:

  • “I guess Kakkou no Iinazuke takes second place”
  • Romantic comedies still dominate the market, huh?”
  • “Did Kakkou no Iinazuke and Blue Lock really resonate with international viewers?”
  • “Romantic comedies are the anime gold mine right now. At least we’re moving away from isekai”
  • “It’s time for TV stations to sell their content internationally. They can’t rely solely on the Japanese market with closed-minded thinking”
  • “If I’m not mistaken, Crunchyroll has licensed all the previous series. Do they pay less? I guess being a monopoly allows them to set the price”
  • “After all, revenue doesn’t always reflect popularity. Revenue is determined before the broadcast even starts, and popularity is determined after it ends”
  • “If ‘The Dangers in My Heart’ is so successful, I wish they had put more effort into the animation”
  • “If it’s fruitful for the production committee, don’t be surprised if they announce the second season soon”


And there you have it, the buzz surrounding “The Dangers in My Heart” and its unexpected triumph in the international market. Who would’ve guessed? So, keep your eyes peeled for more updates and don’t forget to support your favorite anime series.

They need us as much as we need them!
