Yumemiru Danshi Op plagiarized Other Anime Ops

Yumemiru Danshi is the romantic comedy anime of the season with consistently poor animation since the first episode. However, in addition to its subpar animation, this production decided to copy openings from other anime series.

But how exactly did they copy the opening? Let’s dive in!

Yumemiru Danshi Op plagiarized Other Anime Ops

The opening of Yumemiru Danshi contains several scenes that are replicas from other anime series. Before we reveal the copies, make sure you’ve watched the opening bellow:

Can you spot any scenes that seem familiar from other anime series? If so, comment below without reading the rest of the post and head straight to the comments section. If not, we’ll show you the copied scenes now.

This scene might not seem like a big deal. After all, even Konosuba’s opening features Kazuma with the sky in the background, right? But the issue here isn’t solely this scene; it’s just a taste of what’s to come.

IT’S EXACTLY THE SAME! The scenes are identical, with the characters in the same poses and locations on the screen. But wait, there’s more!

Next, we have Yumemiru Danshi’s opening copying Jaku-Chara, which, once again, borrows heavily from the poses of the female characters:

From what I’ve gathered (and please correct me if I’m wrong, so I can adjust the text accordingly), the person responsible for this opening is Toshiyuki Yamashita, who already has a reputation for plagiarizing other scenes. For instance:

The comparison above showcases a scene from both Gleipnir and Chaos;Head, where Toshiyuki created the scene for Gleipnir, which was released after Chaos;Head.
