The fall 2022 anime season is about to begin, with a slew of new titles. This season will see the return of big hits like Spy x Family and My Hero Academia, as well as promising new titles like Chainsaw Man and Blue Lock.
Eternal Boys is neither a returning series nor an adaptation of a hit manga. This is a new original anime carried by LIDEN FILMS, and here’s why it’s worth watching closely.
What is Eternal Boys about?
Most idols enter the entertainment industry as teenagers, which is often considered the perfect age to debut. But Not the Eternal Boys. This idol group consists of‘adults, the youngest being thirty-five and the oldest forty-five. These men all come from different backgrounds: a salaryman, a high school teacher, a football player, a child actor turned enka singer, an animator and a business leader. The only thing these men have in common is that they have no experience in the idol industry, and they have all either quit or been fired from their previous jobs.
Rather than relying on their industry knowledge, these men rely on their many years of professional experience to succeed in show business. With their varied professional experience to guide them, these men set out to prove that there is a truth behind the old saying “age is just a number”. Although it’s not their level of amateurism that keeps them from stardom, but rather their aching backs.
Where to watch Eternal Boys?
Eternal Boys premiere set for October 11. It will air on Fuji TV in Japan and on Animax in other Asian territories. At the time of writing, no French or English platform has announced its intention to resume streaming the series.. There are still a few weeks until the series premiere, so hopefully there will be an official announcement before then.
There are plenty of idol anime that Eternal Boys will have to compete with or live up to. Since it’s not based on any existing media, no one knows yet what to expect from this series. But for anime fans looking for middle-aged men performing in sparkling outfits, Eternal Boys should be right up their alley.
