Namco Bandai Games has launched an official teaser website for Kimi ni Todoke ~Tsutaeru Kimochi~ ("Conveyed Feelings"), a new videogame for the Nintendo DS based on Karuho Shiina's popular manga Kimi ni Todoke. The "pure adventure" game will ship next spring.
This will be the second game in the franchise; the first one, Kimi ni Todoke ~Sodateru Omoi~ ("Childhood Memories"), shipped on October 15, 2009. The first game followed the manga's basic storyline of Sawako, a shy high school girl whose frightening appearance earns her the nickname Sadako (a reference to the horror film Ringu). After befriending a popular boy named Shōta, she is able to open up her world and begins to make friends.
Shueisha began publishing Shiina's manga in Bessatsu Margaret in 2005; Viz Media has been releasing the manga since August 2009. A TV anime adaptation aired in Japan in October 2009, and a second season is due to start this coming January.
