Seven Seas announced during ANNCast on Friday that it has licensed Atami Michinoku's The High School Life of a Fudanshi (Fudanshi Kōkō Seikatsu) manga. The first volume is scheduled for May 30, 2017.
The manga launched on Ichijinsha's web site Zero Sum Online on May 1, 2015, and Ichijinsha published the manga's second compiled volume on April 25.
Seven Seas describes the story:
Ryo Sakaguchi has a deep, dark secret: he's a fudanshi—a boy obsessed with BL. While he has trouble understanding how others don't find the same bliss he does from his unusual hobbies, that doesn't make it any easier for Ryo to buy his precious manga from the “girls” section of the store, or any simpler explaining the world of boys' love, shipping wars, and doujinshi circles to his best friend Nakamura. Will Ryo find other fanboys to share his hobby with, or is he doomed to sit alone on his throne of BL romance?
The anime adaptation premiered on July 5 and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
