More anime adaptation for Junjou Romantica announced
Junjō Romantica Boys-Love Manga Has More Anime in the Works
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.

The valentines day episode things at the end of the movie was utterly hilarious. I wanted some Yuu Yanase though Kisa had the 2nd funniest one and then Onodera and Masamune had me laughing the most cause the artstyle and faces.
Love Stage! OVA out.
Love Stage felt a bit better than the tv anime, perhaps it was the lack of the color or maybe it was Ryouma shower scene combined with the thoughts of an uke Ryouma as well. wanted.
Dōkyūsei Boys-Love Manga Gets Anime Starring Kenji Nojima, Hiroshi Kamiya
A-1 Pictures produces anime adapting Asumiko Nakamura's 2006 1-volume manga
An anime adaptation of Asumiko Nakamura's Dōkyūsei (Classmates) boys-love manga has been green-lit, although the format of the anime has not been specified. The announcement was made with a promotional video:
Kenji Nojima (Sailor Moon Crystal, Psycho-Pass) and Hiroshi Kamiya (Shirokuma Café, Durarara!!) will star in the anime as Rihito Sajō and Hikaru Kusakabe, respectively.
Shouko Nakamura (Penguindrum, Kill la Kill episode director) will direct the adaptation at A-1 Pictures with character designs by Akemi Hayashi. Chieko Nakamura will serve as the art director, Ritsuko Utagawa will handle color design, and guitarist Kōtarō Oshio will provide the soundtrack.
The remaining staff is as follows:
Director of Photography: Yukiko Nagase
3D CG: Kaori Sato
Editing: Shigeru Nishiyama (REAL-T)
Sound Director: Akiko Fujita
Sound Production: HALF H.P. STUDIO
The story begins during music class before the chorus festival, when male student Hikaru Kusakabe notices that the bespectacled honor student Rihito Sajo is not singing. Although he thinks that Rihito just doesn't like singing, he finds him practicing alone in the classroom after school. Without even thinking, Hikaru calls out to him.
Nakamura published the original manga in Japan in 2006 in one compiled volume. The series was followed by the spin-off Sora to Hara and sequels Sotsugyōsei (Graduates) and O.B.. Digital Manga Guild has released Dōkyūsei and Sotsugyōsei in English.
OH wow, more BL anime incoming. I read the manga to this so Im looking forward to it.
