Manga and Reality Merge in Tales of Wedding Rings VR Ad
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
A new video gives a glimpse inside Maybe's Tales of Wedding Rings (Kekkon Yubiwa Monogatari) manga virtual reality experience for all of us who missed it at AnimeJapan.
The VR experience converts the beginning of the fantasy romantic comedy manga into a digital comic where the heroine, Hime, is a fully 3D model. It's now available for purchase via the Oculus Rift VR store for 2,149 yen (US$20). The VR experience will be released for the HTC Vive via Steam next month.
The manga, by Dusk maiden of Amnesia creator Maybe, follows Satou into another world. He intended to confess to his crush Hime, only to discover she's from a fantasy world and already betrothed to someone else. When Satou ends up in her world, he crashes the wedding and finds himself the groom instead.
Crunchyroll is distributing the manga on its online platform and Yen Press is releasing the manga in book format. The second compiled volume was released in English on May 22.
