Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! (映像研には手を出すな!, Eizōken ni wa Te o Dasu na!) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Sumito Ōwara. It has been serialized in Shogakukan's seinen manga magazine Monthly Big Comic Spirits since 2016 and has been collected in four tankōbon volumes as of May 2019.

An anime television series adaptation by Science Saru premiered on January 5, 2020. A live-action film adaptation will open in Japan in the third quarter of 2020.


Midori Asakusa wants to create an anime, but she's too disheartened to make that first step by herself. By pure chance, she meets Tsubame Mizusaki, an up-and-coming socialite secretly dreaming of becoming an animator. Together with Midori's money-loving best friend Sayaka Kanamori, the energetic trio slowly work towards making their "greatest world" a reality!


Midori Asakusa (浅草みどり, Asakusa Midori)
Voiced by: Sairi Ito[2]
Portrayed by: Asuka Saitō (live-action)[3]
A freshman at Shibahama High who likes anime. She is full of curiosity and imagination, yet not very sociable. Her policy is "Anime is all about its setting" and she has kept various designs inspired by her daily life in her sketchbook. Sayaka Kanamori, Asakusa's classmate, used to be the only person who knows about Asakusa's passion, but when they visited Anime Club together, they got along with Tsubame Mizusaki, which lead them to start up Eizouken. Her goal is to explore her own "greatest world".
Sayaka Kanamori (金森さやか, Kanamori Sayaka)
Voiced by: Mutsumi Tamura[2]
Portrayed by: Minami Umezawa (live-action)[3]
Asakusa's tall and long-legged classmate. Though she has neither interest nor knowledge of anime, she somehow took interest in Asakusa and hangs out with her. She loves getting involved with money-making activities and she tries to find a way to earn some cash even in small talk. After starting up Eizouken, she takes on the role of producer, being the only realist on the team, and proves herself through negotiating with the school and student council. Asakusa and Mizusaki's creative spirits often trouble her though she respects their abilities.
Tsubame Mizusaki (水崎ツバメ, Mizusaki Tsubame)
Voiced by: Misato Matsuoka[2]
Portrayed by: Mizuki Yamashita (live-action)[3]
Asakusa's classmate who is a charismatic amateur model and famous in the school. She is expected to be an actress in the future as both of her parents are actors, but she actually wants to be an animator and is especially good at capturing character movement. As Mizusaki has been banned from joining Anime Club by her parents, she joins Eizouken instead and starts to create anime together with Asakusa and Kanamori. She has a different sense for money from the two of them as she comes from a rich family.
Doumeki (百目鬼)
Voiced by: Yumiri Hanamori[2]
The only member of Audio Club. She joined the club for the vast numbers of the audio files that are stored there, but ended up giving up a part of its storage to the student council. Approached by Eizouken, she accepted to take the role of audio consultant on the condition that she can lodge in their club room.
Sowande Sakaki (さかき・ソワンデ, Sakaki Sowande)
Voiced by: Mikako Komatsu[2]
The school council's secretary. She is better at seeing through the essence of things than the opportunistic president, and considered an influential person of the council. She seems to care about Eizouken which tends to push their ways, but her true intent is unknown.
Mr. Fujimoto (藤本先生, Fujimoto-sensei)
Voiced by: Kazuhiko Inoue[2]
Eizouken's consultant. He is known for the historical-figure-like mustache. He rarely gives direction to Eizouken and leaves the activities up to the members' independence. He likes to play games in his free time.
