Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata Light Novels to Get Film (Updated)
posted on by Egan Loo
The wraparound jacket band on the fourth volume of Tōru Honda's Light Novel no Tanoshii Kakikata light novels and the "GA Explorer" pamphlet insert have announced that a movie adaptation of the series has been green-lit. The announcements do not specify if the movie will be animated or live-action. The story centers on Yakumo Atae, a first-year student who knows the hidden secret of his fearsome classmate Tsurugi Yabusame — while she is the school's strongest girl, she is also a budding light novel author under the penname Mio Himemiya. Tsurugi is stuck in a huge slump while writing her new romantic comedy. Yakumo's cousin Kokona Atae happens to be Tsurugi's editor, and Kokona suggests that Yakumo and Tsurugi become a couple so that Tsurugi can know the experience of romance.
Honda began the light novel series in last year, and SoftBank Creative is shipping the fourth volume this month.
