posted on by Egan Loo
The Japanese publisher Kodansha will bundle an anime DVD with Hiroki Yagami's G-Best -G-taste Best Selection compilation manga volume on November 22. The 64-page volume will collect selected stories from original full-color erotic manga series, which ran in Young Magazine Uppers. However, the bundled DVD will contain about 25 minutes of all-new animation produced by the anime studio AIC Plus+. The anime will feature five of the popular characters from the manga. Katsuhiko Nishijima (Agent Aika, Graduation) is directing.
Yagami is also starting a sequel manga series called G-taste Act 2 in the October issue of Monthly Young Magazine on September 8. SoftCel Pictures released the earlier 1999 G-taste video anime series as its first license after splitting off from ADV Films.
A 69-second censored trailer is streaming on the YouTube website.
Besides G-taste, Yagami created the Dear Boys basketball manga. Bandai Entertainment released the Dear Boys television anime series adaptation under the name Hoop Days.
