Grand Blue Dreaming Anime Briefly Listed by AnimeJapan
posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the AnimeJapan 2018 convention updated on Friday with a list of the event's exhibitors and their works. According to the list, Avex Pictures would introduce a number of works, including a "new Grand Blue anime." The website no longer lists featured works for Avex Pictures, and Avex Pictures has yet to announce a Grand Blue anime.
Kodansha Comics publishes Kenji Inoue and Kimitake Yoshioka's Grand Blue Dreaming (Grand Blue) manga in English digitally, and it describes the story:
After moving out on his own to a seaside town, Iori Kitahara makes a college debut he never anticipated. A new chapter of his life unfolds, full of diving with beautiful girls and shenanigans with a gaggle of lovable bastards! Idiot-expert Kenji Inoue and au naturel authority Kimitake Yoshioka bring you a glorious college tale filled with booze-fueled antics!
Inoue and Yoshioka launched the manga in Kodansha's Good! Afternoon magazine in April 2014. Kodansha published the manga's ninth volume on October 6. The manga marks the first time Inoue is authoring an original manga work.
The manga was nominated in the Best General Manga category at Kodansha's 41st annual Manga Awards last year.
