Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
Manga creator Mayu Shinjo (Sensual Phrase) announced on her blog that a live-action film adaptation of her Ai Ore Love Me! (Ai-Ore! Danshikō no Hime to Joshikō no Ōji) manga has been green-lit. The film is slated to open in Japan at the end of this year.
The manga centers around two teenagers: Mizuki, the female “prince” of her all-girls school and the lead guitarist in an all-girl rock band, and Akira, the male “princess” of his all-boys school. Akira want to join Mizuki's band Blaue Rosen when the band's lead singer moves overseas, but first he has to overcome Mizuki's suspicious misgivings.
The manga launched in Shogakukan's Shōjo Comic (now named Sho-Comi) under the title Ai o Utau yori Ore ni Oborero! However, the manga then moved to Kadokawa's Monthly Asuka magazine, and thus Shinjo changed its title. The first arc of the manga ended, and the series is currently on hiatus.
