When Will Ayumu Make His Move? Reveals Theme Song Artists


The When Will Ayumu Make His Move? website has revealed the theme song artists for the upcoming anime. Kana Hanazawa is performing the opening song “Kakehiki wa Poker Face,” while Kanna Nakamura, who voices heroine Urushi Yaotome, is performing the ending song “50 cm.” 

The jacket cover for the Japanese CD release of “50 cm” was also released.


When Will Ayumu Make His Move? is set to premiere in July. The anime is an adaptation of the manga by Teasing Master Takagi-san’s Souichirou Yamamoto, which began in 2019 and has 11 tankoubon volumes as of April 2022. 

Kodansha describes the manga as:

Yaotome’s the president of the shogi club at her high school, and she’s pretty sure that Ayumu, an underclassman and the only other member of the club, has a huge crush on her. They get together to play shogi every day after school, but no matter what she does, she can’t seem to get him to confess his feelings! What she doesn’t know is that Ayumu has made a pact with himself to reveal his love only after he’s beaten Yaotome at shogi for the first time. Yet there’s one big issue with this plan…he really sucks!

The anime’s staff includes Mirai Minato (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!) as director, Deko Akao (The Genius Prince’s Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt) is the series composer, and Kazuya Hirata (BOFURIFate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya 3rei!!) is in charge of character design. SILVER LINK is the animation production company. Meanwhile, the cast includes Youhei Azakami as Ayumu Tanaka, Tsubasa Gouden as Takeru Kakuryuu, and Hina Youmiya as Sakurako Mikage.

The manga is serialized in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine and published under the Kodansha Comics label.
