The February issue of Shogakukan's Ciao shōjo magazine is announcing on Wednesday that the next issue will bundle a DVD with a special anime of Kaoru Igarashi's Ijime manga on February 3. Igarashi launched the manga series with Ijime - Hitoribocchi no Tatakai (Childhood Bullying: The Lonely Fight) in 2007 to deal with childhood bullying (Ijime), and the fifth manga volume shipped in September. The "Ijime: Ikenie no Kyōshitsu" (Childhood Bullying: The Sacrificial Classroom) anime deals with Sera, a girl who is treated like a queen in a school that is her "castle."
The DVD also contains the eighth anime installment ("Chocolat no Mahō ~Gatō Opera Utahime no Yūwaku~" or The Magic of Chocolate: The Temptation of the Opera Songstress Gatō) of Rino Mizuho's The Magic of Chocolate manga and the seventh anime installment ("Hime Gal Paradise ~Tokimeki~(///∇//) Valentine wa Sushi de Oni Age! Da yo~" or Hime Gal Paradise: Heart-Pounding Valentine Is a Devil for Sushi!) of Akira Wao's Hime Gal Paradise manga. "Kiken na Valentine" (Dangerous Valentine), the ninth installment of the live-action series Secret Girls, rounds out the DVD.
