Koi wa Ameagari no You ni TV Anime Premieres January 2018 on Noitamina

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

This year's 14th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine is revealing on Monday that the anime adaptation of Jun Mayuzuki's Koi wa Ameagari no You ni (Love is Like After the Rain) manga will be a television anime that will premiere in January 2018 in the Noitamina programing block on Fuji TV and other channels.

The magazine also reveals that the manga has 1.5 million copies in print.

The manga centers on 17-year-old high school student Akira Tachibana, a girl who barely expresses herself. She harbors a secret crush on Masami Kondō, the 45-year-old manager of the family restaurant she works at part-time.

Mayuzuki launched the manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Big Comic Spirits in 2014, before it transferred to Weekly Big Comic Spirits early 2016, where it serializes a new chapter every other week. Shogakukan published the manga's sixth compiled book volume in October, and will publish the manga's seventh volume on March 10.

The manga was nominated for the ninth Manga Taisho awards in 2016, and was ranked #4 in the 2016 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook.
