Shungiku Nakamura's story already adapted into 2 TV anime seasons

The May issue of Kadokawa's Asuka Ciel magazine is announcing on Friday that Shungiku Nakamura's Junjō Romantica boys-love manga has a new anime adaptation. Kadokawa's Ciel Trés Trés magazine had announced last month that a new anime from Nakamura in the works.

Nakamura's Junjo Romantica manga already inspired two anime seasons in 2008, and Right Stuf licensed both for North America. A second anime series based on Nakamura's Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi manga premiered last October, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.

The second Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi anime series included an adaptation of Nakamura's Junjō Romantica manga spinoff Junjō Mistake, and there was also a Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi original anime DVD last year.
