I loved Love*Com so hopefully this series will get licensed soon! It sounds like a really fun idea.

It's interesting that two shojo mangaka (Nakahara and Arina Tanemura) are both working on series with an older protagonist. Could it be a new trend? (I hope so, since I'm getting close to 30 myself now).

I've heard that shojo manga creators are often scouted/hired right out of high school themselves so they'll be close to and in touch with their target demographic. I guess it makes sense that after they've finished a 15+ volume series they may feel a little distant from that part of their lives and want to write about someone more their age.

I loved Lovely Complex, both the manga and the anime (and the live action movie has its good points), so if this manga got licensed I'd certainly be interested.

I do like the idea of stories that step beyond the usual high school hi-jinks.

I feel like I can relate to Michiko already, even if I'm 7 years younger. I loved Love Com so I look forward to reading this.

I really liked lovely complex so I could probably see myself getting into this. Im still in my early 20's but I already feel old so I might as well start reading Josei manga.

These are the types of stories that get adapted to live-action instead these days.
