posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The cute guys of "Sanrio Danshi" (Sanrio Boys) project are expanding into the world of manga. The company opened the project's official website last week with four yet to be revealed sections.
On Friday, the website opened its "Manga" section and announced the characters will be adapted by Mai Andō (Amakute Zuru Iwana no Naka) on the MangaOne app beginning in April followed by a different manga adaptation in Sho-Comi magazine in June.
The story is simple. It introduces Kōta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yū Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yū tells Kōta that there's nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio's cute characters. Together, Kōta, Yū, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryō Nishimiya, and Seiichiro Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.
