Junjō Romantica Boys-Love Manga Gets New Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
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 Junjo 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 Junjo Romantica manga spinoff Junjō Mistake, and there was also a Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi original anime DVD last year.

Update: The same Asuka Ciel issue also notes that Miyuki Abe's Hakkenden: Tōhō Hakken Ibun fantasy manga still has an anime in the works.
