Shogakukan: Aura Anime Film Advertisement Was in Error

posted on by Egan Loo
Shōnen Sunday Super magazine's advertising removes mention of anime

The official blog of the editors at Shogakukan's Gagaga imprint reported on Wednesday that the recently posted info about Romeo Tanaka's Aura: Maryūinkōga Saigo no Tatakai light novel series was "partially in error." In particular, Shogakukan revised its online advertising for the Shōnen Sunday Super magazine to remove any mention of a theatrical Aura anime film in 2012.

The editors at Shogakukan's Gagaga imprint did confirm that Kōichirō Hoshino is adapting the light novel into a manga series in Shōnen Sunday Super. The manga series will launch in the April issue, which will actually ship in February.

Shōnen Sunday Super's advertising now notes that Tanaka also wrote the Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita light novels, which is being adapted into a television anime series next summer.

The 2008 school romantic comedy light novel Aura revolves around Ichirō "Menzu" Satō, a high school freshman who forgets his textbook at school one day. Ichirō encounters a beautiful girl while sneaking back into his school in the dead of night. The girl calls herself a witch from a parallel world. Ichirō used to suffer delusions of grandeur like this, but vowed to stop so that he can successfully re-invent himself as a new person in high school.
