Hiyokoi Shōjo Romantic Comedy Manga Gets Event Anime
posted on by Egan Loo
The June issue of Shueisha's Ribon magazine has announced on Friday that an anime adaptation of Moe Yukimaru's Hiyokoi manga has been green-lit. The "Natsu Doki– Ribon–kko Party 5" event, which will run in Tokyo (July 30), Osaka (August 6), and Nagoya (August 19), will screen the anime. More details will be announced in the July issue of Ribon on June 3.
The school romantic comedy revolves around the unlikely couple of a shy 140-centimeter-tall (about 55-inch-tall) high school girl and a popular 190-centimeter-tall (75-inch-tall) high school boy.
The manga has been running in Ribon since 2009, and the first compiled book volume shipped in March.
In the same June issue of Ribon, Petit Parade!! creator Saori Ōoka is launching a new manga series called Mobile Girl Memori. Mayu Shinjo (Sensual Phrase) is also ending the first part of her current Heart no Diamond (Haato no Daiya) manga series.
