Shungiku Nakamura's story already adapted into 2 TV anime seasons, 1 video anime
The wraparound jacket band on the 17th volume of Shungiku Nakamura's Junjo Romantica boys-love manga is announcing on Friday that more anime is in the works.
The manga already inspired two anime seasons in 2008, and Right Stuf licensed both for North America.
The second Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi anime series included an adaptation of Nakamura's Junjo Romantica manga spinoff Junjō Mistake, and there was also a Junjo Romantica original video anime last year.
And also, the cast for Hybrid Child was selected and released. So we will finally have the anime in 2014
The wraparound jacket band on the 17th volume of Shungiku Nakamura's Junjo Romantica boys-love manga is listing the anime cast for another Nakamura story, Hybrid Child, on Friday.
Nobuhiko Okamoto as Kotarō Izumi
Daisuke Hirakawa as Hazuki
Ryohei Kimura as Ichi Seya
Tsubasa Yonaga as Yuzu
Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Tsukishima
Yuuki Ono as Kuroda
Digital Manga Publishing describes the short stories in the Hybrid Child manga:
The Hybrid Child is an amazing android that can grow if it is lavished with enough love and care from its owner. Neither fully machine nor fully human, the various Hybrid Child models develop strong emotional bonds with their owners.
This volume contains several short stories of love, sacrifice, and drama: Young Kotaro learns the importance of responsibility when his Hybrid Child's lifespan runs out. The tragic swordsman Seya learns to love again with the help of his Hybrid Child, Yuzu. The final tale tells the story of Kuroda, the creator of the Hybrid Child designs, and how his lost love inspired their creation.
The anime was first announced in 2011.
Seiji Biblos originally serialized the manga in Be x Boy Gold magazine from 2003 to 2004, and Kadokawa Shoten later published the one-volume manga in 2008. Digital Manga Publishing released the manga in North America. The manga already inspired a drama CD adaptation with a different cast from the upcoming anime.
Nakamura's Junjo Romantica and Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi ~Onodera Ritsu no Baai~ manga also inspired anime projects of their own.
