Hitorijime My Hero is an anime series that premiered on July 8th, 2017, on Anime Strike. The show tells the story of a high school student named Masahiro Setagawa, who has given up on his life and believes that he is not worthy of anyone's attention. However, everything changes when he meets a former friend of his older brother named Kousuke Ooshiba, who takes Masahiro under his wing and becomes his 'hero.'

The show revolves around the complex relationships between four characters. Kousuke, who is a teacher at Masahiro's high school, is a responsible and caring person who looks after his younger brother-like friend. He is also the older brother of a boy named Asaya Hasekura. Asaya, who is a student at the same high school as Masahiro, has a crush on Kousuke but is unable to express his feelings. The fourth character is Kensuke Ooshiba, Kousuke's cousin, who is a childhood friend of Asaya.

The first few episodes of the series focus on Masahiro, who is a troubled teenager with a tough exterior. He has given up on his life after being abandoned by his mother and being physically abused by his father. However, he finds solace in the company of Kousuke, who becomes his mentor and guide. Kousuke sees something in Masahiro that others do not, and he is determined to help the young boy overcome his demons.

As the story progresses, the show explores the romantic feelings that Asaya and Kensuke have for Kousuke. Asaya has been harboring feelings for Kousuke since childhood but is unable to confess his love. Kensuke, on the other hand, is jealous of Asaya's close relationship with Kousuke and is determined to win Kousuke's heart. However, Kousuke only has eyes for Masahiro, and he must navigate the complex relationships between the four characters to keep his true love safe.

The show deals with several mature themes, including abuse, trauma, and sexuality. It explores how abuse and neglect can impact a person's life and how love and support can help them heal. The show also delves into the complexities of same-sex relationships and how they can be both beautiful and challenging.

The animation style of the show is vibrant and colorful, with excellent character designs and fluid animation. The voice acting is also top-notch, with David Matranga delivering a powerful performance as Kousuke Ooshiba. Alejandro Saab and Austin Tindle also shine as Asaya and Kensuke, respectively, bringing a depth and complexity to their characters.

Overall, Hitorijime My Hero is a beautiful and heartfelt anime series that explores the complexities of love, friendship, and trauma. It is a must-watch for fans of romantic dramas and those looking for a show that tackles mature themes with sensitivity and grace.

Hitorijime My Hero is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 8, 2017.
