Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shōmei Shite Mita Manga Collaborates With Glasses Brand
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Alifred Yamamoto's Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shōmei Shite Mita (Scientists Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It) romantic comedy manga is collaborating with eyewear brand JINS. G-mode's Comic Meteor website posted a special manga for the collaboration on Wednesday.
In the collaboration manga, the characters of Yamamoto's series try the JINS MEME device. JINS MEME looks like standard eyeglasses, but it can track the wearer's concentration, posture, and sleepiness by linking to an app.
The collaboration is also running a Twitter campaign that is giving away a total of four special themed sunglasses or PC glasses. The deadline to participate is September 30.
Yamamoto's original manga is inspiring a live-action television series and film. The series will premiere on television in Japan on September 1, and the film is slated to debut next year.
The manga centers on Ayame Himuro and Shinya Yukimura, two scientists who are in love with each other. They want to prove that their love can be scientifically proven, quantified, and expressed factually.
The manga launched on G-mode's Comic Meteor website in 2016, and Holp Shuppan published the manga's fourth compiled book volume in July. The manga has more than 400,000 copies in print.
