Ani-One Asia Streams Dance Dance Danseur, Build Divide Part 2 Anime
Ani-One Asia announced on Saturday and Sunday that it will stream the television anime of George Asakura’s Dance Dance Danseur manga, the BUILD-DIVIDE -#FFFFFF- CODE WHITE anime, and the Don’t Hurt Me, My Healer! anime.
Ani-One Asia’s stream for Dance Dance Danseur will debut on April 8 at 2:00 a.m. GMT +8. The anime will premiere in Japan on the Super Animeism programming block on MBS, TBS, and 26 other channels on April 8. The show will stream in Japan only on Disney+’s Star content hub. The project marks the first time a manga by Asakura is getting an anime.
The manga centers on Junpei Murao, who was fascinated with ballet as a child, but in his second year of middle school, his father passed away and he decided he needed to become more “masculine,” and he gave up on his aspirations. While still having an attachment to ballet, he takes up the martial art of Jeet Kune Do, and becomes popular in his class. Then one day, a new transfer student named Miyako Godai arrives in Junpei’s class, and her mother runs a ballet studio. Miyako realizes that Junpei is interested in ballet, and invites him to do ballet together.
Munehisa Sakai (Zombie Land Saga) is directing the anime at MAPPA, and Yoshimi Narita (My Senpai Is Annoying, Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart.) is in charge of the series scripts. Hitomi Hasegawa (Twittering Birds Never Fly: The Clouds Gather animation director) is designing the characters. Naoya Homan is the dance choreographer, and Hajime Ohtani is the ballet technical director with ballet animation directors Tsuyoshi Kuwahara and Atsushi Ogasawara. MICHIRU is composing the music.
YUKI will perform the opening theme song “Narihibiku Kagiri” (As Long as it Reverberates), and rock band Hitorie will perform the ending theme song “Kaze, Hana” (Wind, Flower).
BUILD-DIVIDE -#FFFFFF- CODE WHITE is the second cours (quarter of a year) for the anime in Aniplex, Yūhodō, and LIDEN FILMS’ Build Divide multimedia project. Ani-One Asia’s stream for the anime debuted on Sunday at 1:00 a.m. GMT +8. The anime also premiered in Japan on Sunday.
The project is set in “New Kyoto,” where a new governing lord is decided through one’s skills at a card game. The anime centers around a boy and a “guard” that he can materialize.

The “isekai burnt-out adventurer comedy” centers on two adventurers: the hopeless swordsman Arvin, and the sarcastic dark-elf healer Karla, who seems to be more talented with ticking people off than healing.

Fumihiko Shimo (Talentless Nana, How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift?, New Game!) is supervising and writing the series scripts.
