In the manga’s story, Takato Saijyo has reigned as the idol industry’s “Most Handsome” for five years — that is, until freshman actor Junta Azumaya comes along. Takato was always considered brusque, while Azumaya’s smile wins over admirers in comparison. The whole fiasco drives Takuto to overindulge in alcohol, and his actions catch the attention of the last person he wants to see. To his surprise, Azumaya uses this new info to blackmail Takuto for physical affection.
The manga inspired an anime film titled Gekijō-ban Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. Spain-Hen that adapted the manga’s Spain Arc. The film opened in Japan on October 9.
