The manga currently has 22 volumes and is published by Shogakukan in the Weekly Big Comic Spirits Magazine. The 1st volume was released on September 14, 2015. MAPPA studios will be working on the TV anime.
Dance Dance Danseur follows the ballet adventure of Junpei Murao, who lost his passion for the sport after his father passed away. However, after meeting a talented ballet transfer student, Junpei decides to pick up his passion again.
In a short interview, Daiki Yamashita shared a few words about his role as Junpei. He said he was thrilled and excited to play his role and looking forward to everyone seeing him as Junpei.
According to Yamashita, the ballet scenes in the anime were performed by professional dancers. Then motion capture was used to create the movements on screen. Yamashita said he’s very excited for everyone to see these amazing dance sequences.
